I love finding inexpensive and simple ways to spruce up my kitchen. The truth is you can add some small things that add up to a big punch. Take, for example, my red bud branches. These were absolutely free from our red bud tree. Today’s post is part of our French Country Friday series. Be sure to check out the gorgeous photos (and links) at the bottom of this post.

I love small and large bread boards. The big ones (especially vintage) can be pricey, but the smaller ones are easy to find and very reasonably priced.

You probably have a ton of gorgeous pieces that you only use for special occasions. Why not start using those pieces every day, or at least display a few pieces on your counter top. Just be sure not to clutter up the space. You can rotate those pieces so each one gets some time in the sun.
