Oilcloth Options

I just love oilcloth; and since I have been selling it in my Etsy shop, it has been fun being able to have a variety to work with right here at home.  As a tablecloth, its cheerfulness just can't help but bring a smile to my face as we sit down to a meal.  I have plans to line all of my kitchen cabinets with it.  Won't that be fun to see a bit of brightness each time someone reaches into the cupboard for a glass or a plate.  But recently I decided there was another area of my kitchen that needed a bit of brightness.  You see, I have a very small kitchen with few cupboards, so a lot of my dishes I have sitting out on a shelf.  Recently I decided that lining the shelves with oilcloth just might make for creating a cheery spot.  So I looked through my oilcloth supply, and landed on the red with white polka dots.  Cheeriness achieved.

I love it! Just the right amount of cheeryness. Red is always good. :)

I love the polka dot red! I prefer shelves to cupboards... I like to see my pretty things. I need to go check out your shop.

Great idea.

My house is full of red spotty things - things in the kitchen, notebooks and even things to wear.
I have a weakness for all things spotty, but especially red things.
Thanks for all your lovely comments on my blog - it's much appreciated! I look forward to reading yours too - across the miles!
Love Kathy xxx
