Patriotic Summer Kitchen Tote

With the 4th of July just around the corner, it is time to break out the 
 Red White and Blue!

I've been working on changing up the Kitchen Sitting Area, and giving it a patriotic feel. The kitchen needed a good dose of "Summer" so I'm giving it a punch of RED. I started with the kitchen table, and gave it something different to wear. So here's just a peek at my Vintage Summer Kitchen, with a white tote filled with vintage utensils.

I started collecting vintage utensils when I started in the flea market biz. Several of these came from my maternal grandmother, and I've kept my eye out for additions for a collection. The red handled are the easiest to find. I have a few with that great "Retro Green" and then a few in white. I remember being at my grandmother's and using the hand mixer to make a cake. I'll share more on these soon.

and of course a flag.

I have a few Roosters, 
that are going to find their way to the Baker's Rack next week,
It needs a Summer makeover, too.

Now, if it will just stop raining,
so we can actually "enjoy" Summer...
