1  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Apartment Kitchen- Help me redecorate on: April 11, 2012 04:00:51 PM
I did some major extreme spring cleaning by taking out all furniture etc in my kitchen (food is still there).

I plan to redecorate {rental unit so no painting etc}.
They are going to put in new floors and cupboards within the next 5 or so years.
The floors will be a dark walnut like, and the cupboards nearly the same dark wood.

What I'd like to accomplish:
*more storage- mostly for appliances
*a small place to seat 2 people
*colors would be bright pastel like, in my mind 50's nostalgic like 'The Wonder Years'

Here's photos....













So my question to all of you is how would you set it up?
I need some Ideas, layouts, links to possible furniture, etc
Any help is appreciated.

angel needed for Tanza (Australia)

List of top 5 (or 10) wishes: if any specific measurements or color preferences are needed, please supply them!
1   anything dragon , wolf, raven related
2   dried lavender buds, chamomile seeds, spearmint seeds, white sage seeds. I want to make closet hanging satchels, or you could makes em for me Wink lavender, rose or even orange or citrus. Small wooden balls with a small hole drilled into them, a few drops of oil inside to soak in are suppose to be good, cant find the balls locally though so there an idea for you. I have all the oils here if you can find the balls and drill the holes(only way through the ball though)
3  I have just finished a frugal swap and it was great so anything along those lines is good too.
4 a nice full sized adjustable apron, I work 1 day a week in the school canteen and we need to wear one.I would like the straps to come out down near the waist so I can go round the back and tie it in front if possible, maybe you could reuse something for this project?
5  remade, v neck t shirts, maybe you could change the neck from round to v neck or even if you have any or op shop some and stencil them. In soft fabrics in muted shades or brown, black, blues, dark greens, pinks(not smack you in the face pink), tie dye is cool also..loose fitting is better than fitted, you know the type men wear, or maybe some mens shirts that have been adjusted to v necks(with ribbing or a strip from the bottom of the shirt used as ribbing) I wear a mens sm or med. I also wear these style for bed..
also anything from or inspired by my wist is cool.

if sending international post NO HERBS or SEEDS of any sort.

*will send complete Questionnaire when you sign up as the angel.

7  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Crafty Detective round 6- anyone up for it? on: February 01, 2010 03:44:44 AM
I organized round 4 before.

It's been awhile since we had one.

would be a 2 month period. figure 1 month of stalking, 1 of crafting.
no sending before the first month.
spoiling is encouraged!

you would need a wist of over craftable 75 items.
if you have a blog i suggest you write a post specifically telling about what items you'd like to receive.

Also anyone want to co-organize?
When should we start sign-ups?
8  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Icy Blue Caged Heart with faux pearls necklace on: January 21, 2010 11:49:48 AM
One of my newest creations.
I love the class and elegance of this necklace. as you might be able to tell I love glass pearls!

would love some input!



9  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / My Newest Bracelets- Jan 13th 2010 on: January 13, 2010 04:15:42 PM
First up is Glass Rose and faux Pearls Dainty Bridal Bracelet
at least i think the flowers on the beads are roses.




So dainty, yet so elegant!

Second is Turquoise Chips and faux pearls Bracelet




Because of the different shapes of the turquoise chips and the round pearls, it feels really neat to run through your fingers. Its really comfortable on the wrist too.

So what do you think?
10  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / New Groovy Pink Flower Earrings! on: January 10, 2010 12:39:35 AM
Pink Mother of Pearl Flower Earrings Short Dangle





These earrings are made with a cute pink mother of pearl flower shaped bead frame with small green seed beads and white pearl E beads strung on a metal headpin and long fishhook ear wires.

I love how these turned out. Perfect for spring or summer.

Can you tell I don't like this snow, lol?
