Not just repurposing, but BEING repurposed......" if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation: the old has gone, the new has come." ~~ 2 Corinthians 5:17

Gather round the kitchen table, I've got a big announcement

I can't think of a better way to make a GRAND KTCHEN ANNOUNCEMENT than by first introducing you to this GRAND KITCHEN LADY. I wish I could say that she's our new mascot, but alas, she belongs to another.

I found this displayed in one of our local charity, thrift shops. Of course, I immediately freaked out and ran to my car for the camera -- no camera. Trip #2 -- camera, no photo disk. Trip #3
-- success.
This was put together by one of the store's volunteer merchandisers. She had seen it in a magazine (don't know which one, sorry I can't give credit) and immediately fell in love with it and had to duplicate it for the store.

Speaking of spectacular, my big announcement isn't spectacular, but it is exciting for me. My husband has a website selling kitchen cabinets online. So to hopefully send some traffic his way......wait for it........wait for it.......I'VE STARTED ANOTHER BLOG!!!
It's called "Havin' Fun in the Kitchen" and it's all about, ...duh, having fun in the kitchen. There's a link to it in my sidebar. I hope you check it out.
P.S. If that wasn't big enough for you, check back here in the next day or so. I'm planning another mediocre, I mean exciting, announcement. .......... Okay, it's going to be about my first giveaway. Keep it on the down low.
