Around the Kitchen and a Giveaway~

Our kitchen needed a little frou frou. I'm contemplating painting and distressing the kitchen cabinets. Don't tell farmboy, I'm workin' on him. But for a start here is some progress.
A friend of my sister crocheted our last name and I matted and framed it.
I had to make another paper wreath for the wall space above the pantry door.
After we moved in we painted the walls light taupe.
Be sure to click on each photo to enlarge.
We've had this perpetual calendar for years, it was a dark two tone blue.  I like the look of monograms so I printed this and put it in the frame.

Now for the giveaway ~
