All About Me - My Perfect Kitchen!


All About Me - My Perfect Kitchen!

This was my "perfect" kitchen back in the 1970's and I was so proud of it. Wish I had more of a photo
of it. Didn't always have a camera back then though. This photo shows me standing at the original kitchen
cabinets that came with our home. My brother built us a beautiful island that helped to divide the big L-shaped
family room, kitchen and dining areas. And I don't have a photo of that island. But it was much, much lighter
than the chocolate colored cabinets in this photo and that's where my daffodil yellow countertops were. I loved the colors
I had chosen - I loved bold, bright colors. Now I kind of cringe at my feeble attempts to decorate my home back then.
But I am NOT embarrassed about them. Back then, those were the colors. And I was NOT a pro at decorating. I just
chose what I loved the most and LOVED it!!

    Fantastic layout Jan! You know, the "retro style" is in, so it would be right in style once again :) I love the tattered paper and how we are "looking in" on you! Great Job on this!
    Sounds very colorful. I am partial to color myself and if this made you happy, that's all that matters. Neat layout - the grungy background looks nice and I like the other papers, too. The window is a neat touch.
    Oh, love this. What a great picture. I certainly do remember avocado and harvest gold appliances. Love your layering.
    Great photo and I love the grungy paper you used to "frame" it! I remember those avocado and gold appliances too - sometimes I wish for those simpler times when I "had what I had" and was happy with it and didn't wish for more! Fabulous layout, Jan!
    This is wonderful! Okay, I remember the perfect kitchen---even had one. Thanks for a great memory and sharing a beautiful layout!
    Great layout. Love the photo and background papers. You know, here in Florida there are lots and lots of homes still in original condition with avocado/gold kitchen appliances, pink, blue, yellow, green or even lavender tile bathrooms, including matching toilets, sinks and tubs! I think they are gems when found in original well-cared for condition. I once came across a home with baby pink kitchen appliances and dark wood cabinets - just amazing! Love the 70's retro feel of it. Well done.
    Fabulous page. This works perfectly for our High Noon Crop challenge this week. :)
    This is wondeful! love the brick, flower and peeled paint papers. The colors of your kitchen are still some of my favorites :) Love the photo!
    Love your layout. And the peeled paint paper. And yellow flower paper. Your photo is great also. Amazing memories
    What a creative way to preserve these memories! I like the pealing paint and flower print on the outsie of your "house", leading one in to see you in you kitchen. Very effective technique and cool effect!.
