I was getting tired of looking at Peeps every time I brought up this blog page. How about you?

So do our kitchen shelves qualify as 'cottage'? I had other colors mixed in like pink and blue, but for some reason my head likes only two-color combos. More than that and my brain goes on color overload. Why is that? I love in magazines and other people's homes when they can combine all sorts of colors and it all ties in so well and looks beautiful. But not me! I have a block of some sort, it seems.

Anyway, this kiwi or lime green works for me right now. Love it with my ever faithful red and white. Then come the holidays when I throw in my gingerbread collection (it's growing - thanks to my sis-in-law who sent some cute musical stuffed gingers for an early b-day present!) and it all goes.
I found the little green igloo cooler at Goodwill last week for under $3. Love it! Gave it a good washing and it's as good as new.

I need to find a bigger picture other than the little strawberry painting (another thrift find) to properly fill in the space above the stove. Or else another little one or two pieces to fill in.

Other than that, I'm loving the cheerfulness of it all! And it reminds me of summertime with watermelon, cherries, strawberries, raspberries - yummmmm. I am so looking forward to summer again. Oh, right! Gotta get through spring first.
