MY LITTLE PIGGY

      10613019_4847530681716_2620986721989814278_n[1] out of all  the things in my kitchen this little guy makes me smile the most,he is a reminder of a simpler time in life when families gathered at grandmothers house simply to celebrate animals being born the turkey that thought he was a dog & would chase you ,little yellow fuzzy ducks,learning how to milk a cow,sliding down hills on a piece of cardboard , a place where you knew you were loved &always welcomed with open arms, she didn't text when it was time for supper she hollered out the back door no watches to be back by, you just knew to be in by dark ,with all the wonderful technology available today a simple life seems impossible but when I stand at my sink & actually wash the dishes by hand or wear my apron, I am transported back to a simpler time of a lifetime of memories!

PAINTING & TWEEKING

I am loving this color of green,  “pine needle” 10846465_4844491005726_8676099466375780348_n[1]

it’s such a soothing color & has made it’s way into the bathroom , the curtains are a country red Tule & shower curtain is black so hopefully the lamps will blend back in

bathroom09

while that dries  there’s plenty to do in the kitchen, like organize the cabinets & color coordinating my dishes, this is just 2 sets counting the black plates & blue glass plates a for extra’s, blue willow is on top of the blue glass , my sister just recently gave me the red cherry glasses & napkins, they fit right in ! now for the other cabinets, yes there’s more lol!

10521653_4844751212231_1065663477752882823_n[1]

I absolutely love dishes, there is a cabinet all down the wall on the other side of the kitchen that holds all my serving bowls, platters, candy dishes etc. that coordinate with the dishes once  that’s done, the green will find it’s way into the kitchen, the cabinets are getting a  makeover as well, no not green! lol!

speaking of painting, I have this pink bowl & pitcher that’s I’ve had seems like forever but it’s home has been in the shed for many a year oh I still love it, the shape the size  but pink no longer works for me so I was thinking of painting it white, any ideas on what to use on it so’s to not look like it was just spray painted? I’d rather it live out its days in the shed as to ruin it
