Vintage Kitchen à la Toad

April 1st







"May I ask you a question?"

"Do these ice cream dishes make my butt look big?"


 I recently moved the scale & dishes from the little breakfast hutch to the windowsill above the kitchen sink to allow for more counter space.  I looked at the empty bowls for just a moment before grinning, rushing to the other room, and grabbing the li'l frog bank I'd rescued from storage the past week.

I thought he'd make a perfect gentle reminder.

"Do you really want to eat that?"


Vintage Kitchen Windowsill Decor

Frog Bank ~ 25 cent Garage Sale Find

 Black Rimmed Restaurant Bowls ~ Local Thrift Shop for under $1 each

Green Beaded Lampshade & Black Metal Lamp ~ Thrifty Finds...found separately for probably around $2.99 each.


Fitz & Floyd Asparagus Canister ~ Goodwill $5.99

Wouldn't froggie be a great spokesman for Boraxo, too?


Vintage Soap Tin & Toledo Scale ~ Relics from The Little Red Shop Bungalow.

Wrinkled Simply Shabby Chic Curtain used as temporary backdrop so you don't have to look at my messy yet-to-be-restored back porch ~ Target Sale

Now he is really stinkin' cute! I love the backside of him, how it looks all wrinkly just like a real frog! Lisa ;-)
