Decorating the Kitchen Window Sill

Hello, everyone!
Summer is officially here, and I am looking forward to all the fun summer activities and adding summery touches throughout my home.
I love adding seasonal changes to the kitchen window sill to liven up my kitchen.
There are two big casement style windows in my kitchen that allows plenty of natural light into the room.

One of the windows is right above the kitchen sink with a wide sill that provides plenty of space for me to decorate, create vignettes, and brighten up my day while doing the mundane task of washing dishes.

Pretty yellow pansies in blue willow tea cups make a beautiful display.

I placed the tea cups on these pillar pedestals to add height to the vignette.

Love the contrast in color between the blue willow of the transferware tea cups and pretty yellow pansies.

On my last trip to Home Goods, I was happy to find this over-sized galvanized bucket. 

Love the rope handle detail and how the fern looks inside the bucket.

A pair of hen and rooster is perfect for a summer kitchen vignette.

I placed the pansies in peat pots for easy watering. 

The peat pots were then placed inside the cup.

The blue willow tea cup makes a pretty vase, don't you think?

I hope you liked taking a peek at my kitchen window sill all decorated for the summer.
