I'm not really a fan of kitchens decorated top to bottom with roosters and hens and eggs get the picture. However, I do love food-themed art, especially when it's colorful and a bit tongue-in-cheek. These four pieces would bring a bright pop of color and style to any room but would be especially nice, I think, in a breakfast nook.

  1. Hahaha, kitchens with roosters and eggs crack me up. My mother-in-law used to have hers decorated that way, but after they did a few renovations the chickens never made their way back out. It actually made the room look a lot bigger because there's so much less visual clutter.

  2. Great picks! I love the mixing bowls!
    My husbands grandma's kitchen is filled with roosters! We call her grandma rooster. She doesn't know that.

    1. Hahaha. Grandma rooster. Made me smile.

  3. These are my favorite of your posts. :) I adore that stacked bowls print. The glass bottles one is really cool too. I'm on the same page as you as far as kitchen decor goes.

  4. Ah, the strawberries... early summer forever!

  5. i've just stumbled across your blog and have spent ages looking through it, lovely posts full of great imagery and inspiration, love the colours in these!

  6. Hey girl! It was the first Anais Nin book I read after her book on philosophy, and I really regret not reading it with a dictionary in hand. I mean it was beautifully written and the female character was completely complex and fascinating, but I was not prepared for the language she used- completely different to anything I had ever read before.
    Surprisingly i found the erotica to not be so explicit, but I sense it's 'tamer' than her other novels

    much love

  7. Great finds! THe nesting bowls are uber-sweet! I love food themed pieces as kitchen art too. A bowl of lemons or oranges are always nice in lieu of sculpture art too.

    Yay for summer!

  8. Love your scenes fro life. What I'd really love is to eat that cupcake! It looks delicious.
