No! Really! Notice the wallpaper! Let me help you out with a closer look! This woman loved her some birds and flowers. The wallpaper also matched the curtains she had in there and I know that, in their time, they were not cheap. But the birds just HAD.TO.GO.
This is the view in the kitchen looking back into the dining room. The front door is there on the left. And even thought that black blob looks like Molly, it is really my camera case.
Add a little paint, a little stencil, new light fixtures and LOTS of elbow grease and free labor and....
And still closer....~sighs I just love to stencil...for reals~ The words are vinyl letters and they were SSSOOOO easy to do!
And this is one of my new favorite pieces! My mom found this old tea crate at a thrift/antique store and knew I needed it. Someone had added a top to make it into a table. It is between the kitchen and dining room. I still need to decide what I want to put on top of it.
This is where my new black cook top and built in oven will go WHEN THEY ARE DELIVERED TODAY!!!! Can you tell that I am just a wee bit excited?!?!?!!?
Miss Molly began throwing a fit at the front door last night. I have a glass screen and I keep it open so that she can see outside. She loves it and will lay there for hours. She suddenly begins to throw herself against the glass wanting OUT. She is not an outside girl so I told her NO. I glanced outside and guess what I saw on the front porch eating late blooming June bugs?!?!
Yep, I am right where I am supposed to be. I shall call him Albert and make him wear his crown on special occassions.
