The previous owners were smokers and try as I might the cabinets never looked or felt clean. When we moved in I scrubbed them and spent a bit of $$ replacing the horrid knobs with beautiful glass ones. I actually questioned reusing them as they are amber glass and the paint color is beehive :)
But I wanted to help the stainless colors coordinate with the paint color so went with the square knobs. I had been investigating these knobs at $4-6 apiece and bought them online from someone, 39 for $30!! Love a bargain.
The wallpaper was chosen first as I try to maintain the Victorian character of the house, then the paint color. My DDIL1 and I were texting back and forth and discovered that yellow was a chosen Victorian color, while the greens were from the Art Deco era. So yellow it is!
We generally paint the trim a color as close to the walls as possible which is also a trait of Victorian homes but we are going with bright white this time to try and brighten up the kitchen.
OK let's see what is up with knitting updates. I cannot add pictures or descriptions or discussions currently as some things are stealth. But I will be donating the Chemo caps my Circus has knit. I am hoping to gather them all together, finish tagging and get some pictures. I need to do a quick article and clarify with the Chemo Center that it is ok to send to the hospital newspaper. I cannot wait to share all these beautiful caps with you!!!
I am 15 minutes past my schedule of switching from knitting to DIY projects so I will stop here.
The kittens are almost 6 months old and cute as can be. Annabel is 4y6months and it is evident she misses Artemus tremendously, as do I. Nickolas is almost 4 and the sweetest dog ever, Phineas is almost 5.5 and has more good days than bad lately, I think we have finally figured out the right combination of his meds and Oliver will be 6 in December. He is not always comfortable with kittens and is somewhat high strung but this manifests itself with vomiting and pacing rather than aggression . He is a wonderful dog who tries and takes care of everyone in the house.
So til next time, thanks for looking, leave a comment and see you soon.
