I am also one of those people who sign up for every catalog she can. Pottery Barn arrived yesterday and I am drooling. All the lovelies I have been searching for, ready to come to my house. Some are even reasonably priced (3 baskets for $24! perfect!)
Some will live in my dreams with my french flea market loves from Restoration Hardware...roulette anyone? (I live in Reno so it does a kitchy chic thing for me)
I love all things metal that are (or look) old.
I love the idea of a chalkboard painted platter- the possibilties are endless. I think I want to paint the center of one of my browned and well loved aluminum cookie sheets. There are so many color options for chalkboard paint too, visit Hudson Paint (hudsonpaint.com) but I favor traditional black, but am very tempted at dark grey. It would look great above my stove, which is just the right size for a medium sheet.
Here are two more lovelies! Love!
