Adding Color to the Kitchen

Here is my mom brightening up her former kitchen (in Tennessee) with her smile and apron. :-)

You can add color to your kitchen by making some colorful aprons to wear and/or hang on the wall, or by dressing up some of your towels with ribbon or fabric.  Here are some links to help.

French Country Apron and Matching Headscarf

Tea Time Appliqué Half Apron

Fabric Trimmed Towels

Ribbon Trimmed Towel

Ribbon Accented Tea Towels – Wouldn’t this look cute with some fruit themed fabric between the rows of ribbon.  I might try this if I can find a good price on plain tea towels.

Here are some cute oven mitts too.

There are lots of possibilities with these patterns/ideas.  You can use any cotton print or color that would go with your kitchen.  Plus, these would make some cute gifts – maybe something quick for Mother’s Day. :-)

Here are some of our homemade aprons hanging in the kitchen where we lived in Arizona. :-)  I can see at least four different aprons there.  I love the homey look of aprons hanging in the kitchen, whether they are used or not.  I have a friend who pinned an antique apron on a wall of her kitchen just for decoration.
