Getting it all together!

Since we are intergrating two houses (ours and that of his father who passed in November), I hadn't taken much time to decorate until now. I am so excited!

Yesterday I finally found the fabric for my PINK and white kitchen.

It's been a long search to find the perfect fabric to compliment my great-grandmother's depression glassware chickens, maternal grandmother's teacups and my teacup collection, and mother's stained glass piece. It has become a very special room for me surrounded by these treasures.

New additions are George's grandmother's glassware and china set ...

I'm also hoping to get some items made by my paternal grandmother. She is great at crocheting, but with 16 grandchildren (plus great-grandchildren) there are a lot to of "orders" already I'm sure. Especially since a few are starting college and moving into their own homes.

I'm really looking forward to seein the finished project, but I am also excited about the project itself. Well, I'm off to finish another paper for school ...

Until our next visit ...

That fabric is going to look lovely in your new (HUGE) kitchen! I, too, have some depression era roosters from my grandma- I need to take them out and display them, you have inspired me!
