The object in the farm right corner is an antique bottle capper.
Keeping blossoms in these bottles reminds me of how I would pick violets or dandelions when I was a child and bring bouquets home for my Mother. She would always find some little vase to place them in and up on the kitchen windowsill they would go. This same scenario was played out again when I had my own children...memories of a truly sweet time.
Come Fall, I will put these bottles away and bring out something for Halloween. For Winter....some of my snowman collection. For Spring.....who knows!
What is on your kitchen windowsill?
