It's All In The Details

Rudy's favorite Spot! Something homey about a cat.


 
 I had hunted and hunted for an old  bread box and couldn't find just the right one. My friend (also my aunt by marriage) gifted me the perfect one. I love it!



     Heck, I didn't even have to distress it ! The many years of service had already handled that detail.


  I know there are a lot of people out there that just don't find the beauty in such detail. A little rust, some dents and scratches, and some peeling  paint, equals perfection to me.


 
More beautiful detail ! I have a little gift in mind for this old mirror.I will be working on that the next couple of nights. Show you later !


Last but not least,an old cake flour bag. My original plan was to upholster a footstool with it. I couldn't bring myself to cut it ,so I just framed it and it hangs proudly in my kitchen. 

Stay warm, Tami

For those of you who asked about the chalkboard. We made it with a thin piece of MDF (available @ home improvement stores) , painted it with chalkboard paint and framed it.An easy project !
