My Red Sweetheart Kitchen

About three weeks ago I had a burst of inspiration!   I was on Pinterest and saw this link and thought how utterly cute and perfect!  My new (to me) kitchen would fit this theme perfectly and at that very instant I knew I wanted a red Sweetheart Kitchen!  When I went to Walmart the other day I saw some red check shelf liner and knew that it would make me smile every time I opened the cabinets.  I'm silly like that! 

(Forgive my picture- my white balance was preset and I forgot to change it!)
See??? Doesn't that just make you smile? 
And my silverware carrier doesn't slip around in the drawer! 
I inherited some lovely check red and crocheted dish towels from my 
sweet friend Martha who made these herself.  
She also made me another gift...
See the lovely braided rug at my kitchen sink? 
She made that for me when I had told her my plans for my sweetheart kitchen.   
Isn't it adorable?

Lots more work to go but this is my beginning~!


  1. Love the pops of red in your Kitchen..... 2 years ago we took the plunge and painted our kitchen red and a pale yellow and i just love it!!

    Thanks so much for stopping by!!


  2. I'd also thought of adding yellow since it goes so well together. But haven't taken the plunge yet. I have more red to add to my blog this week! Thanks for visiting!

  3. You're well on your way to having your red sweetheart kitchen! Most of my items on the red mantel came from thrift stores or items I made for free or nearly free. Once you train yourself to look for "red" in stores, you'll see things that will fit right in. The lovely crochets in the drawer - I would bring those out, hang them or put in another wire basket! Amazing rug, so perfect! Have run red-ding up your kitchen!
