Happiness on a Kitchen Windowsill



When I lived in my little cottage in Idaho there was no window over the kitchen 
sink.  Although I loved that little cottage I always longed for a window I 
could gaze out of while cleaning up the dishes or washing veggies.  When
we found our house in Texas I was so excited to see that there was a big
window over the sink so I could watch the birds and the squirrels enjoy
the big old pecan tree just outside.

The other thing I love about this window is that there is a little sill
where I can display little things that make me happy.   Things that
make me smile.  A pretty little jelly jar.  Some red cherry tomatoes.



A miniature stove that was a Hallmark Keepsake Christmas ornament one year.





My two miniature African Violets.  One of which is blooming right now.





A little red china bird that I found several years ago while antiquing.





My miniature dollhouse hutch and a mini red chair with tiny tea towels
on the seat.  

Little things that make me happy and make me smile.
Wishing you a day filled with happiness and smiles!



Thank you so much for all the heart warming Birthday
wishes yesterday!

Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley

  1. Happy Birthday Susan and how sweet your little window sill displays are. I'm jealous. I haven't a window or sill over my sink either. I did in my last house but not this one. It's funny that's also the one thing I would change here if I could.

  2. Thank you for the happy birthday wishes. Now about the kitchen window ~ I think more women should be designing house plans so that we get what we want. Men just don't seem to understand the need for a window over a sink. I see so many homes ~ mostly the newer ones without them.

  6. I know just how much fun you are having...I do somewhat the same thing with the shelf under one of my kitchen windows. I love changing the vignettes and there are so many possibilities.

    1. Isn't that stove cute??? It was a Hallmark Keepsake Christmas ornament one year. I did not buy one when it was issued but got it on ebay instead. Probably paid to much for it but it was my Christmas gift to myself last year. The have a fridge too. So cute, but I don't own one.

  9. Susan - Love all of your goodies in your window - of course, especially the minis! Sorry I missed your birthday - John and I took a quick little three day vacation when we had the chance. So, happy belated birthday my friend.

  10. That is so interesting that you mention there was a fridge. I worked for a Hallmark in Nevada for 15 years. 2011 was my last year before we moved to Seattle. Anyway, I didn't catch the whole ornament bug like some did. Thank goodness or I would have never seen a paycheck. I did however treat myself to the... can you guess? Yep, the fridge. I really wanted the stove once I had the fridge, but haven't procured one as of yet. Maybe we could trade off, I get the stove for 6 months then you get the fridge, lol. Well I've rambled on long enough. Take care. Thanks for sharing.
