As I schlep and sling my Christmas decorations around, I feel much more inspired by reading a blog like Tracey’s. Notes from a Cottage Industry. This woman has style…….she’s a natural. I can’t believe I didn’t feature her yet. I had to look at my archives a few times just to make sure.
wait, there’s more………those bows kill me.
So as I was saying………not only does she re-do furniture……..but she takes on BIG projects and decided to re-do her whole kitchen. Who can blame her. That’s not a suitable kitchen for a Cottage loving woman. No, No, No… and she will not settle.
AFTER!!!!!! She even used one of her newly painted tables as an island. Genius! Look at the little thingy holding up the counter bar thingy. I like saying thingy. A little peek at her kitchen nook chair. Darling. She has a photo of the whole thing on her first page……..all decorated for Christmas. I could hardly get off the first page. So much eye candy. I couldn’t take all the photos from there, I wanted to leave a few for you. But don’t stop there. She’s got great archives.
I know Thanksgiving is over, but HOLY COW look at that table! Makes me want to completely rethink my holiday table for next year. WOW! To make it even better in my book…..see those little place setting frames? She bought those at Walmart and painted them! Painted them to match a cake stand.
OK, now it’s time to go pay Miss Tracey a visit. Tell her how you found her. Enjoy all her photos, ideas and charm.
