Let’s Get Shabby~Challenge #16

This month’s Let’s Get Shabby Challenge is a two part challenge, the first is to decide between two kitchens.  I choose Kitchen number one.

challenge 16This was a hard challenge for me as my colors are very bold.  My kitchen is egg yolk yellow, black and white.  You see the small trivet in my layout ~the chef eating the spaghetti?  That is where  I got my inspiration for my kitchen.  The black and white tile in the back ground is fake.  lol  I painfully, took a level and painter’s tape and mapped it out and just painted it.  Everyone one who sees it thinks it’s real tile.

IMG_1018 Part two of the challenge was to add one piece of fabric, two die cut shapes and three colours from your chosen kitchen that will need to be your dominant colours.  I’ve chosen white, yellow and teal.  My fabric reminds me of a vintage table runner and I added the ruffle because it reminds me of the old aprons the ladies wore in the kitchen.  My two die cuts is the chocolate cupcake which is my favorite dessert and the wooden spoon I used to add my title.

The little girl I bought at a craft show many years ago, I keep it on my ledge to remind me of Gabby and it makes me smile every time I see it.  Also, love my egg people!  Here’s a close up of them.

Aren’t they cute!  I always wanted to add to this collection but have never seen anymore like them?  I also, choose the black and white because in my previous house I had a cow kitchen, which now is paired down to just my mudroom area.
