My Kitchen is Going to the Dogs

I wasn't trying to go for a theme. And if I was, originally it was cherries. But I just can not resist a pooch! It started with this Scottie dog that my grandpa made for each of us grandkids a zillion years ago.

Then I found this tin sign at the thrift and it's spread from there!

Last week I found this place mat for $1. It's one of those hard ones with the cork backing.

A little hot glue and a ribbon scrap.

That's a dark little nook, but you get the idea. The great thing about using a place mat for kitchen art is that it is totally wipe-able.

I am participating in both Trash to Treasure with Reinvented and the Goodwill Party at Dalomba Days. Head on over to see the great ideas these ladies collect!

You could do some darling things with a dog theme, dog bones and rhinestone collars...
I hope you will come by for a visit.

Your posts are always so great!
I love original themes for kitchens. It's one of those rooms that you can really be brave with - like bathrooms.
My own kitchen needs some spicing up and to switch out the typical green and red apple theme with something more funky!
