Hello my friends,
it's easy to create a Valentine's theme when your kitchen is mostly red and white.
That's the case with our basement kitchen.
It's been almost 4 years since we finished our basement. I wanted it to have a farmhouse feel, so I opted for some open shelving.
I filled them with mostly white dishes, striving for a
For Christmas I added a lot of red and green. When I began to change it up afterwards I thought, why not leave the red out until after Valentines Day.
A sweet heart, a gift from a blog/Instagram friend was tucked into one of the bowls.
My love for polka dots and checks remains evident. (wink)
I've always had a thing for vintage tins as well. Just something about the fabulous graphics!
More reds that make my heart swoon!
And I've never met a cherry that I didn't like. :)
And that leads me to my new purchase from Hobby Lobby.
Big, gorgeous red cherries.
I placed them on the kitchen table along with a jar full of cookie cutters. A couple heart ones were pulled out for display. The cute checkered placemats were a Christmas gift from myfriend, Amanda.
I snagged this bench at a yard sale. I painted it red and added the grain sack stripe and number.
I've mentioned that I am helping with an estate sale. I've been pretty good at not buying alot, but there are a few things that I just couldn't pass up.
One of them were these cute trivets. The S&P/sugar set belonged to my hubbies grandmother.
And look at this giant rolling pin. I tried hard to resist it!! Just couldn't after my friend, Joanne placed it on top of my hoosier.
Now I need to elevate my red & white enamelware.
See that darling scalloped paper? I brought it home from Portugal.
Now you know how this girl rolls. (pun intended).
A little love from my "Valentines" kitchen to yours!
