kitchen time



My first vintage kitchen fabric!! What do you think? I found it on Etsy, and just loved the colors, and sweet patchwork of kitchen goodies. 

 

The brown, aqua, and pink just work so well together! I am not a huge fan of brown, but it works. It is actually a darker brown than the first two photos show, which I like.


The flowers and sweet details are so pretty! There are so many possibilities with patchwork fabric like this! I wonder if anyone had this fabric as curtains in their kitchen? It could be cute!


Today I was able to start cutting into it to make some items for my upcoming Etsy shop! Here is a sneak peek! 


There will be more to come! :) Hope your day has been most lovely!

  15. So adorable! I'm a huge fan of the 30's mostly but when it comes to kitchens the 1950's are the best! Can't wait to see what you're going to create! xxx
