Turquoise and pink

I want my kitchen to look like this skirt. Loads of turquoise with a dash of pink. Perfection.

Speaking of cute kitchens, did anyone else catch Dita Von Teese's pics of her kitchen on her Twitter? Well ok, they were photos of brunch food taken IN her kitchen, but that peek at her oven made me drool. I can't read the brand name on it though, if anyone knows, let me know! *Yay! Nicole of Bombshell Bettie found the ovens, she is after all master of finding just what you need ;) Oven found at Bars and Booths*

This is what I wore the other day to the Duchess showroom. I wanted to wear a suit, but wool and summer don't quite mix for me. I do have a pretty white linen 1940s suit jacket, but just need to find a matching skirt. Then I would have a nice summer suit :)

Ooh... yeah, Northstar appliances are perfection, aren't they? Retro looks, modern workings. We've been drooling over them for a few years now. Someday they will be in my kitchen. Someday when I have an extra 10 grand laying around. Ha! Have you seen the refrigerator? *swoon!* They've even come out with a panel to cover your dishwasher.

I'm envisioning turquoise walls with pink appliances in your kitchen. Dreamy!

Wow, those appliances are to die for! I like your hat, do you think you could do a post all about hats?

Love it! I recently started reading this blog after I found out about it on a Yahoo group about vintage sewing. The photos remind me of family ones from the 40s and 50s! So nice to see these styles still look great today. To quote singer John Pizzarelli,
"Style is coming back in style!"
