I guess you could say that the kitchen is my happy place.
I love to cook in it, hang out with my family & friends.
It seems to be the central hub of our house.
It sees a lot of traffic!!
It may not be my dream kitchen...
it is after all a house built in the 80's...need I say more?!?!
But it's a happy place none the less.
You might remember here me anxiously awaiting the arrival
of my mid century wallpaper.
Well it came and thanks to my hubby and a few hours on a Sunday morning...
it went up!
I love it!
I mean, really love it!!
It's certainly not a design for everyone, or for the faint of heart,
but it couldn't be more "me" if I tried.
It's bright and sunny in the daylight and warm and cozy in the evening.
And that picture...a vintage page from a cookbook found here and then framed.
And now the hunt is on for that perfect mirror to fill the empty wall space.
I'm seeing flea markets in my future!
So my happy place just became a whole lot happier,
and that 80's kitchen...
well it just went and disappeared!
The wallpaper has met with these descriptions so far...
(according to my hubby)
(according to the guy at the framing store when I brought in a sample)
a bit like Narnia
(according to my kids who say it feels like they should be able to part the vines and climb through)
What word would you use?
