Goodwill Tray ~


 I recently picked up this tray at Goodwill for $2.99 - yes, $2.99. I wasn't exactly sure what I was going to do with it. 

 I thought maybe the on the counter in our master bath, maybe filled with odds and ends in my craft room - or here in the kitchen. 

Here is what I had before:

I was thinking this was pretty good. I liked the container and I loved that it all had a "place" (I know I am a little crazy like that). But this looks so much better -

That little Herbs of Provence is actually my salt jar. We don't use a ton of salt when cooking, but when grilling and sauteing veggies we tend to turn to sea salt for a little extra favor.

I love the details on the tray - my hubby thinks it looks a bit like Grandma's house, but I likey!

Oh, how I love this little dish.

So for $2.99, I am thrilled with my new tray for kitchen -

A sweet hello from Frog Hollow Farm Chelsea. I love this tray and especially the way you used it on the kitchen counter. Just lovely and functional. Great job! Ciao, bella!

It's a beautiful tray, Chelsea! I love it there. The other container worked, too, but this one you can just grab without lifting it out of something. Great find for the price!

Well if that is the case just think about how many people love to go to Grandma's house because it feels so comfy and special.
It looks great.
