Show Off and Inspire - Kate's Place

Today I am thrilled to show off and brag about Kathy from Kate's Place.  Her home is full of charm and inspiration.  I am sure you will drool over her ability to weave in touches of aqua to add the perfect touch of color to her home. If you don't know her, be sure to go say hello, she is one of the sweetest ladies in all of blogland.

 Thank you so much Marty for Inviting me.

  My kitchen Is the heart of our home!! I get a lot of light In here, and Its the place I spend most of my time.

   The cabinets are antique white. I didn't paint them. They are the color
    we picked out when we had the house built.

   I bought the shutters at a yard sale. I painted, and glazed them.

    I love putting vignettes together!!!
    I put all my yard sale sugar bowls, creamers, and little dainty tea cups
    In my tiered tray.

    This Is my very tiny foyer! Even though It's small I try to make It
    pretty!  plants love this little space.

    Now to the living room. This Is a large room, and a little hard to place
    the furniture. We bought the pottery barn secional before christmas,
    and we love It, but It's a little bigger then we thought.

    This Is the cabinet behind the secional. I just added my mirrors above
    I added some color to the mantle. The big vase was In my bedroom,
    but I like It better on the mantle. I can't wait to fill It with lilacs!!!

   Another little corner. I bought the big flowered picture at the thrift
   shop. The picture on the other side I bought at the consignment shop.


    Now the bedroom. I love all the color In here!!! So pretty for summer.

    My bedroom has a lot of windows, and It's always bright!! Well, I
    hope you enjoyed the tour!!
                                       Hope your day Is filled with sunshine:))
