Decorating the Kitchen in The Little House

Hello, Dear Ones!
Just wanted you to know if I haven't commented back to you it's because we're traveling and I've prescheduled a  few posts. So I'll get back to you when we get back. So on with The Little House.

I know you've seen my little tiny kitchen before and if not you can go HERE to see the original spiffing. But this post is about the decorating, y'all! ;)
Okie dokie! You can see how really tiny this kitchen is but look at that wallpaper. I just love it. I know wallpaper isn't all that popular now but heck, I don't care, I love my Rooster wallpaper!
I've had these Rooster prints f.o.r.e.v.e.r and their colors blend in so nicely with the wallpaper. You can also see why I picked out those little green knobs for the cabinet doors - they match the green vines in the wallpaper! Patting my tiny self :) on the back.
I just love stuff but had to restrain myself a bit since there's not much space. I love color too, can you tell?
I have to tell you about that cute Rooster plate hanging above the stove. I hung it up with a Command Hook and it's stuck on top of the beadboard wallpaper and it's holding! Woo Hoo!
 My one lonely cow creamer. :(
Now to the other side. I have to tell you, I miss miss miss my deep sink that I had in the 'sold' house!
 A cute little lidless tea pot! An opportunity to poke in some greens.
I really didn't know what I should poke up there on the pass through ledge. Does this look okay? That's Mr. Precious' bowl for his bananas.
 See?
 Poking more stuff on the walls.
Two more olden Rooster prints and I just had to have my tin match box here. I love that old thing and I use it too!
Sniff sniff...roses from my neighbor.

Are you enjoying seeing me decorate The Little House? I hope so as I have some more to show you.

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Joy To The World

Jeremiah was a bull frog
Was a good friend of mine
I never understood a single word he said
But I helped him drink his wine
And he always had some mighty fine wine

Singin'
Joy to the world
All the boys and girls, now
Joy to the fishes in the deep blue sea
Joy to you and me

If I were the king of the world
Tell you what I'd do
I'd throw away the cars and the bars and the wars
Make sweet love to you

Singin' now
Joy to the world
All the boys and girls
Joy to the fishes in the deep blue sea
Joy to you and me

You know I love the ladies
Love to have my fun
I'm a high night flier and a rainbow rider
A straight-shootin' son of a gun
I said a straight shootin' son of a gun

Joy to the world
All the boys and girls
Joy to the fishes in the deep blue sea
Joy to you and me

Joy to the world
All the boys and girls
Joy to the fishes in the deep blue sea
Joy to you and me

Joy to the world
All the boys and girls
Joy to the world
Joy to you and me

Joy to the world
All the boys and girls, now
Joy to the fishes in the deep blue sea
Joy to you and me

Joy to the world
All the boys and girls
Joy to the fishes in the deep blue sea
Joy to you and me

  5. It's lovely, Shelia! I wish this patio apartment had the good "bones" yours does. So mine will be a harder project to bring up to date. And you're wrong about the wallpaper! Wallpaper is in! There's now all the new removable wallpaper for folks to buy! Wish I could find a tin for matches. I remember one from when I was little.

  20. I, for one, am having a ball watching you decorate your little house. You are having fun with it- so that is half the battle of moving and downsizing, isn't it? It must be almost like playing house for you. I would miss my deep sinks, too! xo Diana

  28. You have done a marvelous job. I love the bright pops of color. The match holder is one of my favs of yours. The pass through is perfect and keeps the bananas handy for snacking. So much fun to see the changes.

  29. Your kitchen looks so cute and homey, Shelia! The colors are so cheerful and I love your roosters! :) I'm sure you do miss your deep sink; we got one when we re-modeled our kitchen and we absolutely love it. You'll have to get another one when you buy a home in New York. :)

    Thanks for showing us your charming kitchen. I think you're going to be very happy with your new lifestyle and being able to travel more.

    Hugs,
