So, I finally got a job! I know. It only took around 85 applications and a year, but I'm officially employed. However, since I want to devote most of my evenings to loving my daughter (which I quite miss not spending all day with) and I have to get up at 5:30 to commute, that doesn't leave much time for blogging or crafting. So, sorry for the absence over the past week or so. But a girls got to have fun too, so I will definitely keep blogging!
Any who. Those wonderful junk occasional sales were going on again, and I snatched up some really cool retro red kitchen items. I have been searching for something cool to put kitchen utensils in, and I finally found a cool enamel pot with a red trim. I also found this neat retro kitchen dispenser thing and a fun white napkin holder.
You'll also see that I finally found a purpose for those blue mason jars I picked up (Although to be honest, I think I might switch it to something else I had in mind) and I did a little art for above the stove (which didn't turn out exactly how I wanted it, but it will be good for the time being) I cut those letters from vinyl from hand, but I do see a silhouette in my future. :) Tutorial to come on how to cut them with an Exacto knife though.
My new retro kitchen. :) From left to right: New white napkin holder, foil holder, KitchenAid Mixer, new enamel pot, and my retro Betty Crocker Cookbook. My family has a tradition of buying a Betty Crocker cookbook for your daughter. My mom thought it would be fun to do a twist and got me one that was published in the 50's. It has a whole section on being a "proper wife" and gives suggestions about looking good while cooking (dress, heels and make up) and greeting your husband and hosting his work bosses.
As you remember I got this stool a few weeks ago at a garage sale. I cant decide if I'm going to clean it up and repaint and recover. Or if I'm going to leave it a bit rusty.
Fun unique piece
