A few images from my Shabby Chic Kitchen...

It's been a good week!  My daughter just got back from visiting her Aunt and Uncle in sunny California, my son visited me for a couple of days (he lives 2 hrs. away) and I talked to my husband several times this week on Skype from Afghanistan and he is safe.
As I write this post I am listening to one of my favorite Pandora radio stations...Michael Buble Radio! I like that this station plays old music such as Frank Sinatra and newer music such as Jim Brickman and Michael Buble (of course).   I am crazy about Pandora radio. 
I thought I would share a few images from my kitchen with you.  I hope you enjoy them.

I found this vintage wash bowl at a local antique/craft mall.  I paid $15!  I don't know what they are going for but I think I got a great deal.  I love the little architectural detail around the bottom of the bowl. I had some vintage mercury glass ornaments in it but took them out for a simpler look.





I paid $3 for the tin canister and .25-$1.00 for each of the milk glass vases!  The ceramic flowers were less than $1 each.  The vintage look metal architectural salvage used to be burgandy and I painted it pink.





This white shelf used to be black. I painted it and sanded the edges.  The tiny eiffel tower is from Janet at Shabbyfufu. I love to pick up those little vintage porcelain shoes whenever I see them.







I love this vintage millinery flower.  I've had it for years! I think I'm going to change the fabric on this French memo board to a Shabby Chic fabric.  Stay tuned...

I hope you have a fabulous Friday!
