Change In the Kitchen *plus* The Mad Tea Party

I needed a nice spot to hang one of my latest paintings and a recent eBay find.  I decided on the small wall between our kitchen and dining room, opposite our laundry room.  We had a gallery of photos in distressed frames on the wall before, and we moved them to the stairwell leading upstairs.

I was lucky to find this Mosaicwares piece on eBay.  I've been collecting Mosaicwares for years.

It will have a useful function.  Can you guess?

Yep!  I'm hanging my aprons on it.

The aprons will come in handy very soon in both the kitchen and art studio as I prepare for:



Doesn't it sound *FUN* !!!!!



Until next time...

Blessings!

  14. You have the most darling spaces! Every time I get depressed at the bachelor chic home we're in (no joke, we haven't put up any artwork on the walls yet, and it's been 7 months since we moved in), I look at your posts and get all cheery about feminine colors and themes and changing decor. You're my virtual cheery cottage home! :D
