::My Kitchen Dining Shelf ::

Linking here:

One of my favorite things lately has been to fidget with the shelf in the dining part of my kitchen. 

I showed you my  clock make over. I had fun with that. I put it on the shelf 

...with my St.Valentine's decorations. 

I put some of my old dishes back on the shelf. These originally had belonged to my Great Grandmother on my Dad's side... they were handed down I guess you'd say. Now I have them. They look sort of pink here...but they are actually red. 

The crocheted doily is one I picked up at Bargain Land quite a while ago. 
I had intended to resell it ...however, one of my LITTLES (Bree) decided it made a wonderful princess when it's not on the shelf; she is usually wearing it on her head! 

I also was playing around with book pages the other day; and I made this little banner for the shelf too. 
I had bought the glitter in January for the grandson's birthday piƱata. I didn't use it and was going to take it back along with some other things I had no use for...but decided to keep it. It wasn't long and this little project POPPED into my head! 
I like using what I have to create something fresh and new!  
It's a cheerful spot in my kitchen...

I've posted twice today--- so don't forget to check the previous post to see the winner for the HOMEMADE SOAP SUDS and Shower Scrubbie give away! 

So teach us to number our days. That we may present to you a heart of wisdom. ~Psalm 90:12

I'm falling in love with your banner! Simple and perfect.

I love that one of your babies wears the doily on her head! That's something I would have done. That makes me smile on a Sunday morning.

Thanks so much for joining in this week, my friend.
