Happy ’08 everybody! We hope the new year brings you everything the old year hasn’t. As for us, we’re hoping it includes a finished kitchen.
To help celebrate our new year in our new kitchen, I snagged a perfect little gift off Etsy to be part of Sherry’s Christmas present. It’s a calendar called “” and it features 12 really cool illustrations of kitchen gear, each designed against a bold color that corresponds to the season. At 5.5″ x 17″ it looks good in several spots, but we’re waiting for the countertops to go in before we commit to a final location.
You can get your own from on Etsy for a mere $18. She’s got lots of other cool stuff there, including an full of animal groupings (an army of Ants, a flutter of Butterflies, a murder of Crows, etc.)
Sherry Claus was pretty darn good to me too. I was a little bit baffled when I first unwrapped these two little paper cut outs:
It took me a couple of guesses (king bread? royal toast?), but I quickly figured out that crown molding was in my future. Sherry then explained the best part – I didn’t even have to install it! She’s arranged for our much loved kitchen installer to come back and put molding in the bedrooms and the living/dining room. Quite the royal treatment, eh?
So again, I’ll say that we hope 2008 brings you a kitchen, crown molding, or whatever else you’re hoping for this year.
