My other hobby! Music!

I love vintage music as much as I love vintage decor!  Check out my old timey inspired tunes over at my Miss Elly Swift facebook music page.

My kitchen in a magazine!

Yesterday, I was interviewed and photographed in my kitchen for the local paper's monthly home magazine.  It was just what I needed to get the lead out and finally finish my kitchen cabinets.  A while back I re-painted the pink walls in a brighter pink called Candy Tuft, and then decided, with the help of my hubby's expertise, to paint the cabinets turquoise.  Here's the finished product!

Before finals week and getting sick, I did some shopping!  Here are some of my treasures...

Been a while...

I haven't posted in a while, I've been super sick and working on finals week, so I'd thought I'd post some inspiration pics.  I recently re-painted my kitchen, yep, I'm crazy.  The pink I chose was lovely, but blended into the preexisting beige so much it almost looked brown.  It took me a while to figure out why I hated it, but when I did I decide it was well worth it to re-paint.  My hubby picked out a new pink for me, using logic, believe it or not, and it worked out quite well.  The new pink is refreshing, playful and feminine.  Now that my canvas is covered, I just need to fix the cabinets and find the perfect dinette!

Meanwhile, here are some of the kitchens I found inspiring...
