Nothing Crafty to Show

I still haven't decided what to do about the bulletin board I redid (see previous post). I think I am going to leave the frame black, but may change the fabric out with one that has some white or cream in it to lighten it up. You know I'll post about it when it's done! I haven't been doing much crafty stuff this week. I have been trying to add some more black around so I put a harlequin candleholder on a shelf in my kitchen and added some black and white checked ribbon to the candle and a pitcher. I also finally found a place for this adorable rooster bowl my in-laws gave me a year or two ago. I put it on top of my antique pie safe in my kitchen. I love the colors and what's painted on it, especially the black and white border. Hope y'all have a great day and are having some Springy weather like we are down here in the South!

Everything looks great! It looks like that bulletin board would look perfect, but then again, I'm not in the room. Maybe since you are pulling in more black it will blend in better. What ever you decide I'm sure will be beautiful! Kristen

I love it all...the ribbon around the candle is a great idea. I thought the bulletin board looked good...I think it just takes awhile to get use to it going from white to black...I have no doubt you will figure out what to do about it and it will be great!

Cute again! I am not sure if you have a Hobby Lobby around you but they have all their home furnishings 80% off. When I was there I thought about your home as my store had such cute things that would look good in your house.

I love the colors. So bright and cheerful. You are an inspiration to me. I am redoing my kitchen right now. I just finished painting yesterday so now on to the decorating! I was planning to accent with black and white and your post just confirmed my idea. ;)

Looks great! I love that harlequin candlestick! It's already raining here and thunderstorms to follow later today (probably when I have to go pick up my daughter because that's the way it always is LOL). Have a good weekend!
