Baker's Rack for January

After putting away all the Christmas decor, it was time for a new look for the baker's rack in our breakfast area.  The inspiration for January was a set of salad plates I found on clearance at Williams-Sonoma in San Antonio, when we were in town for the Alamo Bowl.  I had admired these plates when they first appeared in the stores, but I resisted paying full price.  They are hand-painted, so each design is a bit different.
After shopping the house, I found a few other green and gold items to coordinate with the plates.  On the shelf with the plates, I added a gold bottle and a leaf-shaped bowl (that still holds Christmas candy!)  On the bottom shelf, I arranged an old urn holding a small pot of ivy, a green pitcher, and a vintage covered casserole dish that was my in-laws' on a galvanized tray.  The tray was found on the San Antonio trip at the Williams-Sonoma/Pottery Barn outlet in San Marcos. 
On the top shelf, I placed my favorite preserved boxwood topiaries and a gold planter.
Here's the new look for the baker's rack for January.
Thanks for visiting!  I'll be linking up to Marty's Tabletop Tuesday at A Stroll Thru Life this week, so be sure to check out all the great posts featured there.
