What's better on a snow day than having some new shelves to style?!! Yes, I did say snow day! It's always exciting here in Dallas when we get snow, it happens so rarely. Well, not the last two years! We had such a huge amount last year that we all thought it would be a while before it snowed again. It's not alot, and it's not sticking, but this is a really nice treat!
This is what our little kitchen nook wall looked like after I put away our Christmas tree
And look now!
These shelves have been hanging around here for a while. I picked them up at the thrift ages ago, not really having a plan for them, but figured we would use them somehow, someday.
I'm liking my kitchen theme of red and black, with glass and silver thrown in for sparkle. Kind of pre-Valentine.
Our chippy green garden table is still in the kitchen for now. It's not the perfect size for this spot, but it's a great temporary fix while I decide what I want here permanently. Another table? A hutch? A bookcase?
Anyhow, these shelves really have breathed new life into this spot. I love the visual height they add. I think I'm going to enjoy having an extra spot to do a little seasonal decorating. And the best part . . . I didn't spend a dime! I just shopped the house and pulled out a few items that were stored in the china cabinet. Well, I guess you could count the $9 I spent for the shelves last year.
This sweet windmill embroidery has been around a long time. I remember buying it at the thrift back when I had my shop in 2002. The frame was from a junk heap in Canton. If I had painted it white, it would have sold right away, but I just didn't want to! I guess I must have really wanted it for my kitchen all along.
Vintage buttons in a maple syrup bottle. Why not?
I have something else new, too! See that little button, over there on the right? Yep, I finally broke down and figured out how to add a Google Friend Connect button. Several folks had asked, and said it would be easier to follow me this way, so I have just added it. It would make me super happy to see some smiling faces over there! Please do be my friend, won't you?!
Thank you for stopping by to see me!
