I have been trying to play around with something different in my kitchen window. I've tried hankies before, but in a different way, so I found some of my unusual platic colored clothespins, and arranged the hankies in a layered pattern. I kind of like it! I'm all about color, so this fits that bill! Along with my colored baskets and colanders, it's pretty cheery! What do you think? Also, I found a red and white patterns fifties juice holder (no lid) so I'm using it wion the stove to hold utensils. Also these cool thermal cups, found today! I didn't thrift much this weekend because I got an awful stomach thing and was sick since the 4th! Hope that's all gone, back to work tomorrow! Hope your weekends were grand!

Sweet! I've seen people using hankies and clothes pins as curtains or curtain toppers like you have.

Always love your colorful kitchen.

Love those mugs!! The hankies look great like you've fixed them. I only found a couple of books for Tiger this weekend. Hope you are feeling better. It's been too hot to do much yard saling. Hugs, Linda

LOVE the baskets and colanders hanging in the window! Gosh, your cupboards remind me so much of mine, with the fancy woodwork in between, at the window. I bet the next person to buy our house would rip that right out, but I love it!

Me too, Carol! That's what makes it different and special, not like the cold generic kitchens I see. I don't want to live in a "model" home! Unless, of course, it was from the 40's or 50's! Mick! Thanks-hope you are keeping cool down there. It's been like Hades here~
