Happy New Year!!...first I would like to say, "THANK YOU", to all of my friends and customers, some of who are the same!...I feel so fortunate to have met so many sweet and friendly folks through my little online store...thank you for your continued support, patronage, and friendship...may 2012 bring us all good health and happiness!!
I hope everyone enjoyed their holidays and are ready to begin anew. Today I have finally finished up taking pictures of my newly redecorated kitchen. Nothing major done like floors, cabinets, or countertops, just the decor. Of course I will have to show you a couple of "before" pics so you can see what I've been up to...before I had plates on the walls with an overall fruit theme going on...here it is BEFORE:
...now here it is AFTER:...nifty fowl rack made by Art of Old Colony Primitives ...willow checkerboard by Kath of Weeping Cedar Hollow Primitives
...I am probably one of the only people in prim decorating land who does not have a stove board but I am much too paranoid to cover the burners with something for fear of starting a fire...plus I'm too lazy to find a place for the thing every time the stove needs to be used! LOL
...here's a closer look at what's up above the cabinetry...a few of my very favorite things:
...I even got hubs to install a new faucet for me!...and here's a closer looks at my new appliance cupboards made by Kelly of Small Town Primitives...here's another BEFORE:
...and the same view AFTER:
...this is my long counter where I make sammiches, LOL
...a closer look at up top:
...I even changed everything that was inside the glass front cabinet:
...changed all the light switch plates from white plastic to black metal...tried to hide most of them with decor but there are a few that just cannot be covered because we use them too frequently:
...another view of the kitchen:
...many of the signs and gameboards where made by Pam of Goldieloo Woodworks:
...here's a closer look at the cupboard I have above the microwave:
...I got this cute barrel off ebay...it sits next to the pantry door:...and that's it for my kitchen pics, what do you think?...does it look more prim now?
A few days ago I put away everything Christmas and am trying REALLY hard to decorate very simply for winter...it is difficult for me since winter is my very most favorite season!! LOL...so here's my start, it's the primitive pie safe, the snowman make-do is new and was made by Tammy of Rock River Stitches:
...alrighty then, I think that is going to do it for this post...have a great week everyone and most of all have a fantastic new year!!
