In an effort to get my beau in the mood for Valentine’s Day, I decided I would decorate the house for when he comes to visit this week. I know it’s a little early to celebrate, but let’s be honest…shouldn’t everyday be Valentine’s Day. We should appreciate our other half everyday of the year. In the past, I have not been quite as eager to give in to the Hallmark holiday but this year I must say I put it in gear. As I got out my decorations, I was sadly disappointed with the two owl tea towels on which say “Who loves you?” (which was a sad reminder of my singledom last year and I remember wanting to burn it) and a coordinating owl serving platter. This year I decided I needed to up my Valentine’s game. I said to myself “Never fear for Pinterest is here!” in my superhero voice. I’m sure you all find yourself saying that at times. Anyway this is what I came up with. I hope you have as much fun playing Cupid as I have!
To all my Chi Omega sisters, check out this new teapot I found at Pier 1 Imports today. It was a spectacular find to add to my collection. I have a collection of fun teapots, cookie jars and other retro finds above my kitchen cabinets as decoration. I have so much kitchen gear that I am currently building an oversized pantry space in order to keep everything organized. I am converting a small closed in porch area into my dream kitchen storage area. I can’t wait for this project to be completed! Here’s just a taste of what I have stored above my cabinets. And there is a whole lot more where that came from…
I got the gingerbread man cookie jar from my mom this Christmas. He is so cute! The cookie jar on the right was my nana’s. I also collect retro Pyrex refrigerator dishes as well.
I love to collect eye-catching pitchers as well as Pyrex mixing bowl sets. I have seen this particular pattern on Rachel Ray’s show.
Anything to do with baking is a collector’s item for me as well. I have an old fashioned cake sifter and a cake plate. I got the cake cookie jar on the right from my mom for my birthday last year. What kind of collections do you have?
