One thing I can say for this winter, the bitter cold and piles of snow have conspired to keep me huddled inside looking for something, anything, to do, and I have gotten a lot done. Some sewing, and lots of playing with the vinyl decals I am selling in the shop. My sis in love loaned me her pink Kitchenaid to pretty up.
And I must say I love how fun these make the mixer. Her whole kitchen is pink, I think this will go nicely and she agrees. And just in case it would go nicely in someone elses kitchen it's in the shop.
I was also inspired by a piece of my grandmother's feed sack fabric and came up with these Feed Sack Decals with rick rac trim. I took an example from the colors on the fabric and I think these are so cheerful and old fashioned. Perfect for a vintage Farmhouse kitchen!
They sure make this scratched up, 20 year old mixer look good!
Playing with these designs makes me feel like Spring is on the way. We had temps in the high 50's Monday and Tuesday and got 8" of snow yesterday, but the sunshine and warmer temperatures (finally!) make me feel like winter is over. This time of year every time it snows I tell myself, "This is the last snowfall this winter." And eventually I'm right ;>)
What makes you feel like Spring?
How fun! I love how the decals totally change the look! Very pretty.ReplyDelete
Those decals make the mixer look so vintage-ly cute!ReplyDelete
Walking into the grocery store where they are selling hyacinths. That smell just says spring. I don't buy them, because they are too sweet smelling for me in the house, but I love to get a whiff when I walked by them in the store.
OK - I need the vintage decals for my kitchen aide right now!!! They are darling and perfect for my kitchen. You are amazing!!!ReplyDelete
You are using your Silhouette! I can't decide which one is my favorite, they are both pretty and love the cherries you did earlier. Maybe I should fire up my Cricut! I have been so busy I haven't had much time to think of Spring. My life has been consumed with my aged parents ever since last August. Mom had another heart attack a week ago. They live 200 miles from us so we have to make lots of trips there and talk to them many times a day on the phone. Mom is back in Rehab now so hope she'll get to go home in a week or two. I hardly notice the snow I'm so busy.ReplyDelete
Love these. I think I "need" some on my mixers.ReplyDelete
Those look so neat. I admire your getting things accomplished as I really have just hunkered down and vegged out this winter.ReplyDelete
These are just so cute and they make the Kitchen Aid look precious! And you make these? You're good.ReplyDelete
be a sweetie,
The decals make it look so cheerful.ReplyDelete
Both of them are super cute but the Feed Sac Decals are my favorite!ReplyDelete
I LOVE those decals. I need to talk to you about doing some for my white Kitchenaide. It sits on the counter in plain view from the living room and dining room. Daffodils are Spring for me!ReplyDelete
The decals are so fun! Happy baking!!ReplyDelete
Adorable! Love the little ric rac detail. I have a red mixer so need some decals that will show up on it. :) If you're looking for something to do...MimiReplyDelete
Your shop looks so wonderful with these new decals. Your photography is always so stunning and vivid. What a great idea.
Oh mercy! Those lace and flowers could not be cuter! :o)ReplyDelete
I am swooning over these mixers! I've been thinking of spray painting mine but now that I see how great these look I think I'll try decals. That rick rack is super cute.ReplyDelete
I love these. Now I wish I hadn't given my mixer to my daughter!ReplyDelete
The ric-rac is a wonderful touch.
Great ideas. Never would have thought of putting decals on the mix. Really made a big difference.ReplyDelete
LOVE the sweet touches to your mixer! So cute! I'd love to beautify mine but now sure how you did it.ReplyDelete
These are such a great idea, Kathy, and I love the pretty and fun designs. Thank you for sharing with us for Pink Saturday.ReplyDelete
