Pictures and more!

Happy Wednesday friends!!

I have pictures of my kitchen for you. It's not completely done yet but I have made some progress. Things on the wall....I'm horrible at placing things, I'm not real happy with the way things look. I just don't have much wall space at all. The color of the walls is now a very pale mustard looking color. Depending on whether the light is on, the color I can't even find the name of the color anymore, it's been that long since I have had this paint...ha!!






The border

These are the curtains even though you can barely see them. I got them at Wal-Mart and they are from the Better Homes and Garden collection. They were originally more of a gold, the valance was gold and white checked. I coffee stained them and I think they look much better. The sun was so bright I couldn't get a better picture.

My sister from Alabama was here for about 4 days last week. We had a good time. She is the only sister out of 3 that I can really get along with! Here is a picture of her.


We also had a wedding a couple of weekends ago. My hubby's son got married in a really cool park in Omaha. Here is the wedding party.


Here is some really awesome news!! I found a new flea market here in town and never knew it was there! It has been there for quite a few years....this town isn't that big, I don't know how I missed it. Anyway....a great store. I am seriously thinking of renting a booth there but I really need to get my stock up first. They only charge 10% commission with the booth fee being $25.00 and up depending on size. I thought I could start out with a small one at first. Is that a good price? I'm not very familiar with charges for those type of places. Anyway, here are my goodies that I found.

I may redo this, not sure yet.


Some little quilt kits that will most likely not get done for quite sometime...ha!


I love this!

Also loving this big old flour sifter!

Hubby and I are leaving Thursday nite for a little mini vacation to South Dakota to the Black Hills and most likely Deadwood. Will be back Monday sometime. Looking forward to some time away!! And then the following weekend is my garage sale. I can't believe how much stuff I!!

Well I believe that is all for now. Hope everyone has a wonderful and SAFE July 4th weekend!!

Brenda, I love the kitchen and what a GREAT idea to dye the store bought curtains!!!! Comparing to rental fees here in our area that sounds like a great price! We have a new store opening here next month and I'm gonna do a booth for $20. per month and they get 15% commission on every item, but that's very good compared to alot of places here!

Hi Brenda,thank you visiting my blog, glad to have a new follower. I am really enjoying this blog thing, meeting lots of new friends. I love your kitchen, the border is great. The hoosier cabinet looks really good, lots of neat stuff you have displayed. The whole kitchen is great!!
Good finds at the flea market...I'm ready to go junkin!!

Hi Brenda~
Your new kitchen looks great and I love all your new finds. I don't think $25 a month for rent is much at all. It might be worth a try.
Blessings~ Birgit

I think your kitchen looks great! I love the small bowl rack above the door, what a cute idea! I especially love that border! I've thought about buying that one too but have decided against borders at this time. Maybe after I paint, I'll change my mind. From what I can see of the curtains, they look cute. Good idea to dye em a little.

I think that's a great price for the booth! Is that for the whole month?? If so, that is an awesome price! I think you should go for it! Start out small and work your way up if you need to. Or you might decide it's not for you. Either way, I really think you should do it so you don't regret it later on down the road. Right now before fall and Christmas is the best time to get in. After Christmas is dead until spring starts up. That's been my experience in the past anyway. It looks like a neat place, love your goodies from there!

Glad you had a good time with your sister. I love when my family comes to visit. Enjoy your time away with hubby. Sounds like you have some fun things planned!
