Dan and Kaci's Ideas for my Kitchen!

Take a look at the fabric Kaci, my granddaughter, found that she liked for my kitchen!

Hello everyone,
I hope you had a wonderful weekend and stayed as cool as possible in these triple diget tempertures.
It has been over three months since my accident so this was the first weekend I was able to drive to Austin to see my son and his family. Three months without kisses from your grand babies is just a little much to handle.
Made the trip there fine! Except for a lot of pain but still l enjoyed my trip. Hopefully tonight I can do a post about it.

Today I wanted to share with you a email that Dan from Yesterday Once More sent me. He is just the sweetest guy out here in our blog world and he agreed to Tweak my small country kitchen.


I bet you had given up on hearing from me, but this is the e-mail you have been waiting on. Now that you are feeling better maybe you will feel like doing a little tweaking. These are the ideas I have for your kitchen...some are easy and some are not. You can choose which ones you would like to tackle.

* 1950's Theme

* Make a curtain for under the cabinets and window above the sink that is reminiscent of the 1950's pick material with pastel colors.

* Fill Toms jar with peanuts in the shell

* Paint red walls yellow

* Hang a wreath on pantry door to add color

* Leave all the walls that are white white

* Group collections together for bigger impact...especially black figures...they could be grouped on top of glass cabinet or on corner white cabinet.

* Hang old family pictures preferable from the 1950's on the wall coming down the stairs

* Display collection of crocks, if possible, on the on each stair

* Paint a runner coming down the stairs or stencil a pattern of your choice on the stairs.

* Good accent colors to the yellow are pastels and reds it goes well with all those colors.

If you have any questions, let me know and I will help you in any way I can. If I think of something else you can do, I will let you know.

I am so glad that you are feeling better and that all of your tests came back normal. I haven't been able to visit your blog as often as I like. This summer has been crazy. When school starts I will have more time...I hope.

I think of you often and pray that you will be back to work soon.

Take care and don't work too hard!

I love these ideas and can not wait til I can get started. Not sure about Kaci's fabric because Dan mentioned pastels so I will probably keep looking. I have to say though Kaci for 8 has a good eye for decorating.

Go to this link Dan Is Tweaking Me! to read the post I did in June about my kitchen. Here is one picture of my tiny kitchen.

Have a great day everyone.

Love to all
