Color Me Retro was inspired by vintage kitchenware, and is so bright and cheerful, it seemed the perfect place to start in redecorating. It also happens to match all my appliances, score!
The first project was made for my Quilt Market booth but happened to fit in this little space above the counter. It's a mini quilt using my friend Christina's Ornate Mini Quilt Pattern.
Jacey made for me! You can read more about it here. I made the two square mini quilts using a stamp I carved of George. You can read more about them both here. Last summer I made the other mini quilt from fabrics by Katherine Codega. You can read about it here. The embroidered tea towel was made by my grandma! The yellow bunny tea towel is by Margot Myers given to me by my friend C!
Megan and I went to Ikea I picked up this rug to finish off the room! I had a tan rug in here before but it really wasn't our style. Only reason we had it was because I got it for free, someone had set it out for the trash in perfectly good condition. This rug is so bright, I love it!
I also made a new curtain for the room this week. It was hard to get a good photo with the light coming in, it's very sunny today!
Embellished Dish Towels Tutorial. I picked up my plain tea towels at a discount store in Ohio a few years ago.

Sew-it... Today. I also made a few simple napkins and an oven mitt using this tutorial.
So, there we go! My kitchen is all ready for Spring! It got a pretty deep cleaning before I took these photos too! :)
