I still haven't painted the kitchen but I think I have the color picked out. It a soft gray-blue and I'm going to paint the cabinets white. They're a beige color now and they just look drab and I'm going for fresh and clean! I'm off work for 2 weeks at Christmas so I plan to paint it then. Around the soffit area I'm going to hang blue and white plates. Here's what I have so far. I still need about 7 or 8 more so the hunt is on!
Above is a Victorian Kissing Ball that I made last Christmas. I put it on my blog then but my camera was not working very well so you could barely see it. I used a styrofoam ball that I covered with moss and then pushed in some red and green faux hydrangeas and attached some ribbons. I have it hanging in my kitchen this year.
