Who knows how long this centerpiece will stay here...for today it's happy enough!
Found this little chick at Pier 1...after Easter last year for $1.00...I know!!! I couldn't believe it.
There were 3 of them...took them all...
Added a little flag and ribbons and made a little box with sparkly lid for him to stand on...
he looks like a HIM..don't you think?....with rosie cheeks !.

Tablecloth ...GW....very good deal!...

Come to think of it...the tray and the iron chairs were also Goodwill...eons ago...

I think if you pop into goodwill and resale shopes often enough...you can eventually find almost anything your heart desires...Materialistically...that is!
Was a glorious sunny Tuesday...after ANOTHER Post and Crown this morning and a Mammogram to follow, my love and I spent some time in the sun and even took in a show this afternoon.
Fabulous day...xoxo~Kathy
Hope yours was too...

  6. I love your kitchen centerpiece! So adorable. I am thinking spring as hard as I can, but it won't come fast enough. Today it snowed all day. Love & blessings from NC!

  7. Hi Kathy,
    How adorable is that lil chick! So cute, and I love love love your pastel colors. Makes my heart go pitty pat!! lol
    Love your kitchen it is so pretty and cheery.
    Glad you were able to spend some time with hubby and go to a movie, since the earlier part of the day was kinda eh! At least it would be for me!! lol Getting a crown and post and mammogram are not at the top of anyones fun list, at least I don't think so anyway!! lol
    Looks like the spring a sizing is coming along well. Looks very cheery. I am starting to get the itch but trying to wait till we get thru this weekend with hubbies birthday at least. I have learned to pace myself, so when that is over I might start or I may just make myself wait until closer to the 21st. We'll see!!
    Usually I have the same decoration from spring till the end of August, I do move the furniture around tho when summer arrives.
    well, you enjoy your decorating and hope the snow is starting to melt.
    So glad you reminded me of that when you read my monday manna post. I took 3 ideas out to save for a week or so. Thought it was insensitive not to preface it at least with these are for later on or something! I forget everyone that reads doesn't live in Florida!! Oh My heavens, there are days I wonder where my brain went. Out to breakfast I guess!! lol
    You have a great day hon,
    Blessings, Nellie

  8. Hi Kahty,
    Your kitchen is so pretty! I love everything about it - how you arranged the lovely pieces above your cabinets, the two tone wall colors, the cute centerpiece and beautiful table cloth. Tomorrow hubby and I are going to IKEA to buy a stand for our TV in our finished basement and to look at new storage units too. We're knee deep de-cuttering the basement. It's a work in progress. Sweet wishes to you and your sweetheart.

  9. Your kitchen is beautiful, I drew in my breath when I saw it..you are quite a fantastic decorator girlfriend...
    sounds like a great day with your hubby after all the stress that dentists & mammograms bring.
    Peace on your home and your lovely marriage.

  10. Kathy I have a little snow man almost the same sitting on a little round box. I just put him away today...I'm thinking I might try to find him a little spring flag like yours, how cute! I really didn't want to put him away, so now I know what to do. Thanks.
    As for the post and crown? I just finished mine on Wed. Enough already!!
    I'm a GW shopper too, and your kitchen is very much like mine. The only difference is that I painted all my brown to mint green. You have the touch my dear, no doubt about it.
    Hope hubby is feeling good these days. I've been thinking about you.
    Send some of that nice warm weather my way. I'm leaving for Fla. in 11 sleeps, and tonight N.C. has snow : (
    Take care, hope the movie you saw was a good one : )
    Love Claudie

    Thanks for your visit to my blog and your nice comments. Thanks, too, for following along. =D

  22. Hi, Kathy I just love your kitchen, actually I love your home. It's so bright and cheery. I love the stuff that is painted green in your kitchen the little chair the bowl, sail boat, tray. Did you paint this stuff? If so what green paint did you use? I would love to paint some of my things that same green.

  23. Hi, Kathy just love your kitchen. What green did you use to paint the bowl, little chair, sail boat and the tray? I would love to paint some of my things that green.

  24. Since I am one who hinted at a closer look at your kitchen, I must say thank you for sharing your lovely pictures with us. You have created a most beautiful room. It is so bright and cheerful. I have always loved pastel colors and am happy to see there are others out there who also decorate in these colors. It seems like a lot of homes I go into are done in dark colors. While they usually look very nice, I don't think I could live in them.

  25. Kathy, I love your kitchen. Looks like a wonderful place to spend some happy time.


Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with me...I am always encouraged by your kind expressions and thoughtful comments....Know that you are loved....xoxo Kathy.
