Red


I got these new porcelain canisters from LTD Commodities a few weeks back and I just love how red and vibrant they are. Being that we live in a "white-walled" rental, I am always looking for ways to add color and brighten things up. As you know, I am using a deeper hue of red in my living room...but as far as the kitchen goes, I am going for a brighter "Daisy Cottage" type of red. I will show you more photos of my "red" kitchen decor at a later time.

Dilemma: See the little stainless ovals on the front? Well, some sort of symbol or word would go perfectly there but I don't have a clue how or what to do. Suggestions and/or opinions would be greatly appreciated. All of you are so creative and crafty...I am sure someone can give me an idea. Thanks so much!

Remember that white pedestal compote (I think that is the name of it) from Goodwill...well I finally found a use for it. I battled with that for a while. For now I like the faux fruit in it and it is fitting for our kitchen.

Oh by the way, notice anything different???

Yep, new background, an extra column and some bling for you (up there in the right corner).
Feel free to post it on your blog (you will earn EXTRA brownie points).

I hope you are having a great week!

Love the canisters! I use a lot of red in my home too! As for what to put on them, still thinking. Your new blog stuff looks good!

I would do the words in cardstock and attach them in a way so that if you want to change them you can.
I would trace the same oval shape, and cut the edges with a decorative scissor. I would print the cardstock on the computer. Just pick out a pretty font.
Hope that helps a little.
