Vintage Kitchen Swap

Tina was the hostess for the Vintage Kitchen Swap and she was my partner. The colors in her kitchen are turquoise and black. Turquoise is my favorite color so this was not hard for me to find anything and everything turquoise.Above is the bird nest I made for her using an old potato masher. She also collects graters. But........the goober that I am I forgot to take pictures of the vintage goodies I sent her. I'm sure she will have then posted on her site. This is a spoon I turned into the Kitchen Queen. Along with the vintage turquoise hot pad.

Here is the first one I made. I love using these old floral frogs for display. These had been my mom's. She says hope. This seems to be my mantra lately. I hope my poor dog gets over her allergies. I hope my kids stay safe. I hope my mom is happy in her new environment. I hope my husband stays healthy and I hope I loose weight. Of course there is always I hope I win the lottery. And the list could go on.......................................
Hope everyone has a great week.
