Camping = Redecorating the Kitchen

It All Started................
A few weeks ago when my little family took a camping trip to the Idaho mountains.

We camped next to this beautiful river. It had pockets of hot springs. We were having such a wonderful time...Until Liam lost his flip flop down the river. He was so sad. He loved those shoes.

Luckily, there was a teeny tinny little grocery store near by. This was their actual sign. I thought it was so cute. I was a little tempted to steal it. But in stead I just took a picture of it.

They happened to have a box of random shoes. We found a pair for Liam to get-by in. We then continued to have a wonderful time camping.

As soon as we got home, I had to make me a knock-off of their cute sign. So I found some old wood on the side of the house. Brushed off all the spider webs. Painted it white. Sanded it down really good. Then stenciled on the letters.

I think I found the perfect spot for it.

I then wanted to make a few more changes in the kitchen.
So I took down my bamboo shade and hung fabric in the window.

Brought in this...this...I'm not sure what to call it. I was using it to hang my jewelry before.
But it works perfect for my little tea cups.

And then to tie in the "other side of my kitchen" I added some blue bottles and jars to my wood crate on the kitchen table.
 And there you have it!
 Isn't it funny the places you find inspirations?
