2nd Time Around

I love my kitchen window. I am sorry this photo is so dark I really hope that you can see it. Here's a tour and why it is posted in Second Time Around.

The main focus is the grapevine star in the upper right. It has lights on it and was originally meant for a Christmas decoration. My daughter got it at Target for me. I love it and last year I put it in the window and decided 'why heck...why box it back and let it sit lonely in the closet for 10 months?' It stayed and I love it.

Hanging just in front is a hanging candle from a garage sale donation for our ministry. I kept it couldn't stand selling in for cents in a rummage sale. It has beads on it and the metal around it is kind or a rusty cooper color.

Which is the entire inspiration for my kitchen now. My kitchen is white and I love all things white, shabby and chippy. But I got to looking around and I started seeing all this rusy copper color.

I orginally intended to use stanless steel but all this coppery color started just jumping out at me so it is now the accent color with my white and blue and red.

I'll have to one day do a photo shoot when the kitchen is clean and it isn't dark and show you all my wonderful things!

Until then visit Diane diane1876.blogspot.com at for wonderful 2nd Time Treasures.
sorry no color in this post. I am glad I know how to bold and italic with out clicking on those options. I am on my husbands computer and nothing is working Oh the link didn't either that is why I typed it..

I'll be spending tomorrow getting all my photo's off this computer and getting back to mine.
Happy treasure hunting.
