Friday Foto.....

My friend and back-door neighbor, Ms. Jan, gave us a little kitchen set last summer that had belonged to her twin girls.  I think they're close to forty years old now.  This isn't a very clear picture, but you can get an idea of what the little stove in the set looked like "before".

Pappy and I gave it a face lift/makeover and here is what she looks like now.....

Pappy made a new door and used a piece of Plexiglas for the "window".  
(Lowe's at East Town in Knoxville gave him the scrap piece after not being able to figure out how to charge him TEN CENTS....;-)
The stove "eyes" are little wooden basketball and soccer balls from Hobby Lobby with the backs spray painted black.  I spray painted all the "hardware" silver and the inside of the oven, too.  The door handle is a kitchen cabinet handle we had on hand. I had the idea to use one of my cookie cooling racks for the oven rack.  The drawer is lined with scrapbook paper.  Pappy "let" me do most all of the painting!!!  The little miniature cookware came from Big Lots!!

This is a late birthday gift for Miss Ruby Kate!!
Hope she likes it!

And, as for the sink and hutch....
well, let's hope we can get them finished before RK gets too old to play with them!!!  
The stove is only 2 months late.
I'm so glad she's only three and doesn't realize that!!!

Breathing in Jesus,



  1. Its great en so sweet! I saw it on FB and thought it was new out of te store/shop.

  3. What a great job you did, refurbishing the little stove!! What little girl wouldn't love it?!! Wishing you a weekend full of blessings!

  4. That is so sweet! I think Miss RK will get lots of fun days playing with this treasure!

  5. So cute. Can I come over and play house with you?

  6. What a great job you did on this piece! It's going to make an incredibly sweet set & I KNOW she'll love it :)
