My Kitchen Shelf...

There is this small shelf in my kitchen which inspires me to try out various arrangements. The little blackboard definitely helps me convey a message:-) It doesn't require any great skills but has me smiling all day. Do you also have such a corner, a shelf, a table or a windowsill in your home that inspires you to try new creative arrangements?
