Valentines Hutch

I decorated the kitchen hutch for Valentines. I sort of rearranged the stuff and switched out a few others.
Brought in the gumball machine from my craftroom.
The little conversation heart was inspired by Elizabeth at Creative Breathing.
For some reason I think cherries are kind of Valentiny

You've seen these before! My kissing dutch salt and peppers.
Some vintage valentines.

I'm learning to crochet some little hearts. I hope I can make a little heart garland before the 14th.
I've taken the bottom cabinet doors and hinges off from the kitchen. Getting ready to sand and prime them over the weekend. I'm using the extra large size on the pictures. Do you like the big ones ar the regular size better? I'm off to the garage to start sanding.Update-I've primed and painted one side of cabinet doors. It's a long dry time, so this will be going on here for quite awhile. Will show progress next time. Joining Tweak it Tuesday. Go check out other tweaks from some very creative bloggers.Have a great week.!

  26. You have a lot of neat red vintage things for Valentine. I like the way you rearranged and are decorating. I do not do that anymore since it is just me. I do enjoy seeing what others share.

  27. Leslie, Your kitchen project sounds very interesting. I am in the process of convincing my husband to let me paint a hutch similar to this one. LOVE your Valentine decorations! Red is my favorite color.
    I like photographs to be various sizes. It gives the post movement by having the eye adjust to the different sizes. With a collection like this though, large is fabulous! Elizabeth
