I'm so thankful today to be able to celebrate Thanksgiving with my extended family in New Jersey. (I'm also thankful that our drive here last night was rather quick and uneventful!) I hope each of you had a lovely Thanksgiving with friends and family!
Pumpkin sugar cookies decorated by my sister!
I am also grateful each and every day for my readers! I live for your comments and support. I was so excited when I hit 300 followers recently! I feel like maybe I'm actually a "real" blogger now. :) I promise that a giveaway for you fine folks is coming soon…
Since we are "officially" entering the Christmas season now I thought I would share with you what the elves are working on for the big Christmas morning surprise! Remember this nightstand I plucked from sister's apartment dumpster?
Well combined with this laminate cabinet I snagged for $10 on (what else?) Craigslist...
You are looking at my kids' new play kitchen! Right now I have only managed to get both pieces painted a glossy, cherry red (for that retro feel). I'm estimating the entire kitchen will cost about $75. Waaaaaay less then this adorable PBK model.
Until the kitchen is ready for the big reveal, here are a few inspiring play kitchen projects from some talented bloggers.
Elegant grey kitchen from Dwellings by DeVore
Delightful retro redo from Miranda at Narrating Life
Girly pink & green kitchen from Shelley Inspired
Cherry red number from Mommy Words - this one gives you the best idea of the direction I'm heading
I'm totally excited that I can help Santa bring my kiddos a handcrafted play kitchen. Do you have a little one in your life who would love a play kitchen made by you?
