I seemed to have missed a week somewhere Yikes! Sorry I haven't been around again in blogland I am going to catch up later today. Its been a busy couple of weeks again. There have been more changes in the dee dee household and this time it has been the kitchen. This has been an on going project over the past year. And now its the floor's turn to finely have been replaced. A few years ago my friend and I put down black and white floor tiles my god they were hard to cut out but we did it and they lasted a good 4 years. But they have been looking very tired and had started to move. Then we adopted our gorgeous ten year old greyhound Kia who was terrified of walking on them and a few times she slipped. We put a piece of carpet down until we were able to find what we wanted that would still give us that chequer board 50's affect. This is what we have done...
The black and white floor tiles are no more I actually wasn't sad to see them go
And down have gone Black and red carpet floor tiles. My lovely hubby did a fabulous job cutting them and putting them down. At this stage I wasn't sure if I liked them but when the rest of the furniture was back.....
I decided that I now love them :-) They are so warm and I no longer have to get on my hands and knees and wash the floor every day :-) And Kia well she thinks they are smashing and it has given her some confidence back and she now happily walks into the kitchen and outside into the garden :-)
Now its time for the other side of my kitchen to get its final make over the top cupboards have been replaced with 50's glass cabinets and I am just waiting for my bottom cupboard 50's style doors to be made and then I will show you and I can't wait :-) All ready for Christmas.
I have had a few finds over the past couple of months that I haven't shown you so thought I would share them with you now....
70's enamel pot I actually keep all my dog Midi's epileptic medication in there can't remember how much I paid but it wasn't more than £3
I have had my 50's egg stand for year's but I don't think I have ever shared it.
My 60's/70's plastic butter dish an ebay buy.
My 50's tea set a set of 6 tea cups and saucers, side plates and small bowls and one large bowl £7 the lot ;-)
My 2 little vintage brush poodles I love them :-) £2.99 each.
And I found this little vintage Christmas fairy in the charity shop last week she isn't brilliant but she looked so sad and lonely on the shelf that I had to take her home and at 99p it what have been silly not to.
I also found 4 box's of vintage Christmas crackers in fact there were 6 boxes but I left the other 2 for someone else to enjoy. So that's me sorted for the next 4 years :-) 99p a box happy days.
As well as doing the kitchen my lovely hubby is transforming a 50's sideboard unit that I haven't shown you but that I have had for a few months and also the 50's larder that I showed you a couple of weeks ago. So later this week they will be going into the living room and my 50's cream glass cabinet YIKES will be coming out. Vintage wallpaper has already been put on the walls I will reveal all next week ;-) My hubby and I also went to a winter ball on Saturday night it was the first time since our wedding day nearly a year ago that we had both got dressed up and gone out and it was so lovely to get dressed up and spend the evening out and have a dance to.
Have a lovely weekend everyone and thank you for the comments on my last post,
Love and hugs dee xx
