I was so excited to post these pics tonight! I got productive today and made some cottage signs for my kitchen. My kitchen was just feeling blah...needed some cheerfulness added. :) So I shopped my house and came up with all kinds of goodies to decorate with! Fun fun. My mother sent me a goodie box and it happened to be all the right colors and decor I needed to get started. Whoo-hoo!
So here's the signs! I wanted something blue and red and this is what I came up with. The cottage sign I saw on Cynthia's cottage design blog and tried to copy. I did mine a bit different and I love it!
My mom sent me couple of Mary Engelbrite prints! I love anything by her and also Susan Branch!!!
So I took an old frame, spray-painted it red and framed this adorable print! Definitely some cheery to look at while I'm washing up some dishes!
See the kitty? That's from mom too:) Cuz she knows how much I love cats! The red tin canister was freebie in a box, works as a cute utensil holder and the flag? well there's a touch of patriotism in every room...I'm married to a soldier:)
There was also the cutest rooster hook in the goodie box!
I re-did my lamp! I love it much better white than black and I added a big ruffle at the bottom of the shade and that was just what it needed!
The table runner is also Mary Engelbrite! My mom is a quilter and made this for me for my last kitchen!
My generous neighbor gave me this cute little wire basket!
Mom also sent this apron she made...the cherries are a hit!
As you can see I had fun in my kitchen today! Tomorrow is back to school! Wishing everyone a wonderful week!
