IN THE KITCHEN
As I mentioned in my last post I have a tendency to fly by the seat of my pants when blogging. This post is no exception. I did not plan to do any kitchen decorating, however, over the weekend I threw some things on the island and took a few photos. I also brought the rocking horse from the studio, to use in the hearth room. To tell you the truth, I had forgotten about the horse until I was sitting in the hearth room, having coffee, Saturday morning.
The hearth room, other than in feverish dreams, is usually where I get little light bulb moments for projects.
A favorite Christmas pin accessorizes the plaid apron, hanging from a bird hook.
Adding a bit of greenery was my simplified approach to decorating the barn board cabinet in the breakfast room.
I found the horse at a garage sale a couple of years ago.

Ann M. asked about the dining room color.
The wall color is Sherwin Williams Interesting Aqua. The ceiling is SW Topsail, which is at the top of the same chip card as the wall color.
Downy Wrinkle Releaser
Beverly and others asked about the wrinkle releaser.
I have had success with this product. It is great for closet crunched creases on shirts, etc., when you don’t want to press something. I usually just spray a shirt or other piece of clothing and allow it to dry about 15 minutes. I’ve used it on scarves, also. Those I spray then clip to a hanger to dry.
When I do table cloths I put towels on the table then the cloth. After spritzing the wrinkle releaser I smooth with a dry hand towel. This works quite well. I work with small areas at a time. After the cloth is dry, I remove the towels and set the table. I find this much easier than ironing table cloths, which is not my favorite thing to do.
