February Kitchen Window 2014

Mugwump Woolies dollies

Having trouble getting good pics of my window today. The overhead light in the window is flickering...even when I changed the bulb...so I don't want to leave it on too long. These are the best I could come up with for the time being.


An early black wall box with a couple of my dollies...


...Angela Hillstrom...Of Cloth and Hand...heart and scissors


Polly Put the Kettle On...by Debbee Thibault is part of the centerpiece on the bar in the kitchen. Antique French Linens rest in my favorite early black compote. The candlestick is from Pat and Don Gaddy of Old Bittersweet Farm.


I was tickled to find this wonderful vintage red and white damask towel recently...red and birds too!


The original tag says made in Czechoslovakia. It hangs proudly on the oven door.




Hope your week is off to a good start! 

It was twenty nine degrees when we arrived in Tallahassee last Wednesday. The city was closed down because of "black ice" warnings. Annie and I did make it to Thomasville, Georgia on Friday, but I did not take any pictures as we were in and out pretty fast because of the cold. My girl is a Florida girl and doesn't fare well in the bitter cold.

Every year, when we go to Tallahassee, Annie has a "Girl's Night Out" with a wonderful friend of ours who works for the Florida Bar. They go to dinner and talk, and talk, and talk. It is something Annie looks forward to all year long. Mr. MW and I grab a bite to eat and then meander through Books-A-Million. It's a blessing to have good people in our lives that love our girl. We are so very grateful for them.

Welcome to my new followers..hope you will visit often.

Have a great week...stay warm and safe!

Enjoy the day,
Robyn

  4. Once again you have done an amazing display! Thank for sharing. You have inspired me to decorate my much smaller kitchen sill each month and when I posted pictures on Face Book, I mentioned yours so don't be surprised if you have new followers. Several of my followers have decided to decorate theirs as well. You have inspired a new trend!! Linda - Behind My Red Door
