BPOH: Kitchen Decor
As promised here are a few of my favorite kitchen decor items. I love this little bowl. I'm crazy for all things ladybug these days so I couldn't resist this when I saw it. My one little apple looks lonely.
Next are a couple of favorite photos. My beautiful niece Tatum in a really pretty sepia print. And me and my sister, Carla, on our famous Route 66 road trip. She had just graduated from high school and was on the way to the Navy so we decided to jump in the car and drive. We weren't even legal drinking age but we drove halfway across the country and back. The rule was we had to take old Route 66 unless there was just no other way. Sometimes it would just dead-end so we'd back track to get on the highway. Awesome time! You can barely see my little fortune from a cookie next to the frames. I put it there to remind me of what it says "Time heals all wounds. Keep your chin up."
This is a cute little iron stand with pretty little glass jars. Since I don't cook (unless you count punching holes in the top and deciding how many minutes to set as cooking) I wasn't sure what to put in here. Can you see what it is? Yep... fortune cookies. I thought it was a unique decorating idea. Oh, there's some pasta in there too.
This is a funny little print my mom gave me a few years ago. She thinks she's comical. A glimpse into why I'm single maybe? The real ones can never measure up to the imaginary ones.
This is my favorite. I found this artist who did Chinese calligraphy and had him do a custom print for me. It says "Mother and Daughter" and then has Mia's name and my name spelled out. I had it framed which turned out to be more expensive than the print itself. But I love it!
But Connie had the link on her blog about finding out what your name looked like in Chinese so I tried it. What I got was not this. So now I'm a little worried about what it says. I mean maybe I was naive but I trusted the artist to know that he was writing what I was asking. Uhh... anybody know Chinese? Unless I find out otherwise (let's hope I don't cuz you don't want to know how much I paid to have this framed!) I'm going to continue believing that these are mine and my future daughter's names.
