Best weekend in a long time. Worked on Saturday but then headed out to the open studios and toured Bradbury & Bradbury Art Wallpapers in Benicia, CA. Just gorgeous stuff- the photos online don't do the wallpaper any justice!
These wallpapers are silk screened by hand and the quality is really amazing. We think the one on the right will look great in the kitchen...someday.
Also hit up the flea market (Sunday) and saw some really great stuff, although I was frugal and only came home with a bottle opener, a postcard and a magazine rack. These are some of the things I didn't buy-
Did you find anything nifty over your weekend? Do tell!
I recently 'met' Zootsuitmama (or rather found her cool blog) and she wants to see kitchens! Definitely check out the comments and see some of her reader's retro kitchens, they are to die for. :)
Right now our kitchen is definitely NOT show off worthy. Some day, some day I will have a place for all my treasures but until then I'll just have to be inspired by all the other pretty kitchens out there.
I might as well be brutally honest and show you my 'dream kitchen' in its raw state. Holy cats! It's awful! I will admit, I kinda like the wood grain dishwasher, though.
Not exactly the bright and gay kitchen of my dreams- yet!
Until then I'll just have to amuse myself with my kitchen treasures (the ones that aren't still packed up in boxes, that is).
Wives who cook and do the dishes should be granted these three wishes: a grateful mate...a well-kissed cheek...a restaurant dinner every week! Tell it, sister!
These little pitchers also belonged to grandma. Do you remember those little toy canisters that make animal sounds when you turn them upside down? I was told that the cow pitcher used to have one, so when you poured the cream or milk it would say moooooooooooooo. Maybe I should get one!
Not grandma's but here are some more salt and pepper shakers (thrifted). I couldn't resist.
I also thrifted this sweet scale last week! Maybe I can use it for shipping when I finally get around to opening up the etsy shop again.
That's it for the kitchen for now, but if you liked that then wait 'til I tell you about the DINING ROOM!
