Working On the Mini Kitchen

Hello, Dear Ones. I hope you are enjoying seeing what I'm doing in my mini world. I'll get back to normal sized decorating in due time. I have some more new things to show you in the mini kitchen.

 I've decided to spiff up my little kitchen.
 I bought the sink, stove and fridge. Although they're cute as buttons, they are kinda boring. Let the spiffing begin!
 I started to work on the stove. I added a wall with a back splash which I've not glossed up yet. I got brave and decided to use mat board. I tried mat board earlier but I just couldn't cut it so I used foam board instead. Well, you can cut mat board. I marked my lines to be cut,used a sharp bladed xacto knife and made about three cuts and it worked! I think I'm impatient and tried to cut through it with one swipe. Anyway I covered the mat board with a little tile looking paper for the back splash.
 Every stove needs a vent hood so I made one using mat board. I painted it yellow and modge podged a little Rooster image on it! Cute!



I wanted to show you these precious little cooking utensils I bought! I hung them up with poster sticky stuff so I can take them off when I want to.
 Y'all can come on over for dinner as I have a pot of beans cooking and the coffee pot is always on. The little doors of the oven open up so I'll make some corn bread too! I just love this stuff.
 The bottom cabinets you see are the boxes I used in the kitchen of my first little foam board house. I used mat board again for the back part and then made some shelves for the top cabinets. The thingy you see sticky out on the right is a little paper towel holder.
 The yellow counter tops - mat board again. Look at the cute little scale I bought. Somehow my most dainty fingers poked twice when I ordered it and I was sent two scales! So I painted the second one red and will show it to you later. These little scales come all in pieces and have to be glued together. I did okay with this one but not so good with the painted red one. Oh, well! :) I bought the little toaster too. It came with two slices of bread and as soon as I got it I poked the slices into the toaster and dog gone it, one slice of bread got stuck! I can't even get it out. Sometimes I mess up! I'll bet you thought I never messed up, didn't you?  :)
 Have to put pretty stuff in open shelves you know.
 Working our way around the kitchen to the corner ~ I made a corner cabinet. I used the box bottom cabinet again and added the mat board back splash. I put a little shelf up to put more thingys on.
 I know the backs don't touch each other, but I made each section separately so I could move around the arrangement when I wanted to. I need to make some new canisters to match my new kitchen.
 Okay, I've put everything in place so you can see how it all looks. Tang thinks that toast is for her.
There you have it, my entire mini kitchen all fixed up. Well, I'm really not finished as I plan to put a window over the sink and hang some things on the walls, maybe get a rug for under the table, cook some food, get more dishes...does it ever stop? :)


Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia :)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Nothings Gonna Stop Us


Looking in your eyes I see a paradise
This world that I've found
Is too good to be true
Standing here beside you
Want so much to give you
This love in my heart that I'm feeling for you
Let 'em say we're crazy, I don't care about that
Put your hand in my hand baby
Don't ever look back
Let the world around us just fall apart
Baby we can make it if we're heart to heart
And we can build this dream together
Standing strong forever
Nothing's gonna stop us now
And if this world runs out of lovers
We'll still have each other
Nothing's gonna stop us, nothing's gonna stop us now
I'm so glad I found you
I'm not gonna lose you
Whatever it takes I will stay here with you
Take it to the good times
See it through the bad times
Whatever it takes is what I'm gonna do
Let 'em say we're crazy, what do they know
Put your arms around me baby
Don't ever let go
Let the world around us just fall apart
Baby we can make it if we're heart to heart
And we can build this dream together
Standing strong forever
Nothing's gonna stop us now
And if this world runs out of lovers
We'll still have each other
Nothing's gonna stop us, nothing's gonna stop us
Ooh, all that I need is you
All that I ever need
And all that I want to do
Is hold you forever, ever and ever, hey
And we can build this dream together
Standing strong forever
Nothing's gonna stop us now
And if this world runs out of lovers
We'll still have each other
Nothing's gonna stop us
Nothing's gonna stop us, who
