Fall Preview


Last week we showed you a very bright color....well, we couldn't wait to show the end result! We love papering or painting our display pieces. They really show off the product in the store better when we do this! In fact....this weekend we will be painting our back wall. It's been four years since we painted that {and let us tell you...it's no piece of cake to rearrange the store to paint one wall!!}




We've acquired a new dress form - Sally Stitch {we just call her Sally}. Now Marlene, our other dress form, will have a friend {she just couldn't take the load of modeling all of those vintage & vintage reproduction aprons herself!}


With dancing skeletons, eyeball bath fizzys, glittery shadows and fall flowers in place....

Fall has officially come to The Summer Kitchen - not too soon, not too late!

We still have many things coming in yet ~ just you wait!

The shelves look fantastic and that color will carry you until Christmas at least!!!I know what you mean by moving everything to paint one wall...Yikes!! Good luck to both of you... lots of coffee and a Sister always help!!!
