What’s in your cupboard?
I’m sure that most of you have a favorite place that you like to decorate. For me, it’s my blue cabinet in my entryway.
Yesterday I started pulling out Valentines Day décor. This is a bit early for me. Usually I wait another week. It’s been so dog gone warm here that the Winter décor just wasn’t cutting it.
I loved this cabinet from the first time I saw it. It was priced $400, which really wasn’t bad. But then they had a 20 % off sale so I knew I had to buy it for $320. I have NEVER been sorry!
You can see that this is where my cupcake liner garland ended up. It worked perfectly with the pink and brown theme.
I bought the paper doilies at D.I. for 50 cents. Thought they added a lacy touch to the shelf. Still trying to decide if I should put them on the 2nd shelf. I wouldn’t want to over do. LOL!
Look at this darling wrapping paper I found at T.J. Maxx. Perfect for lining the shelves.
Would you like a tour of Mrs.
Hubbard’s Olson’s cupboard?
The first shelf holds my small collection of pink depression glass, a few pink plates, a pretty rose sugar bowl, and a bit of vintage brown ware.
I love this pale pink hat with the net. A thrift store find. Wouldn’t it be fun to wear for a spot of tea?
my pink depression collection consists of two condiment/relish trays. A few glasses and cups, and some cute ruffled edge dessert plates. I also have one large bowl.
Those of you who know me know that I am much more a ‘red’ person. But oh how I love pulling out the ‘pinks’ for Valentines and Spring.
Did you notice the ‘Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice’ theme going on?
Tucked in behind the pitcher and tea pots is an old ‘Avon’ Valentine album. I have had it for years. Since the days that we really played them.
The rose teapot and flower frog dish are D.I. and yard sale treasures. I love them!
Now for the bottom shelf.
A bit of ‘cupcake’ LOVE. I stitched the words using a chain stitch.
I painted this Valentine box years ago. How cute are these cupids? Looks as though I still have Valentines stored inside.
I decided to polka dot my ‘sentiments’ frame. An easy way to do this is to punch a circle in a recipe card and use it for your stencil. The card is heavy enough that it works great. I wanted small dots, but remembered that my small circle punch had broke. Too impatient to wait, so big dotties it is. When stenciling, use very little paint and wipe most of it out on a folded paper towel first.
Now for the top of my cupboard.
I couldn’t have a ‘Sugar and Spice’ theme going on without some SUGAR!
I know that you are dying to ask, “YES, some of it I save from year to year.”
Most of my Valentines Day décor is so old. Like these jumbo conversation hearts. Another fun and easy project I did. Still love them.
Bowl of Baubles.
A couple of years ago I went on a bow frenzy and made them for all the holidays.
That’s my cupboard, all decked out for the big day.
No matter how you say it, it all means ‘LOVE’!
I knew that I had to do this stitchery because my dear mother always called the grandkids, ‘LOVEY’ and I sometimes call mine ‘SWEET PEA’.
I hope you enjoyed the tour of my blue cupboard. If you haven’t entered my give-away, be sure and do so. Click on the words and it will take you there. Icing on the Cake Give Away
Have a sugary sweet day!
