Fabulous handles

Here is a sneak peek at what I've been up to the past couple of weeks. Thanks to Lisa and Elizabeth I was able to make my kitchen lovely. It was so super gross before. The cabinets were gross dirty brown with ugly hardware. We painted them white and then I found these amazing blue glass handles on the internet. I so love them!
My Dad whipped up this new cookbook shelf for me. Now I just need new counter tops, buy the Amy Butler material for the curtains and cut the oilcloth tablecloth out and we'll be set. I love it so much it makes me a little sad to think about selling it!
In other news, I received my I Dream of Spring Swap Package from my secret swap partner, Stefanie over at artsymomma. I really LOVE it!
Look at that wreath, isn't it cute? Also included were vintage cookie cutters, a little statue, a vintage jewelry box and my fave...
These fabric covered embroidery floss cards. The materials are so pretty! Thanks so much Stefanie!!

The kitchen looks great! I love the cookbook shelf - send your dad over here to make me one:) Are you selling now or are you just talking about "selling" in the future?

Your kitchen is adorable! I love the oven and the brick wall. What do you mean "selling"?????? (Your dad is a stud by the way.)The swap package you got is so cute, too!
