Bella Cucina~

Don't forget to enter our Giveaway October 7th!
I saw this cute little sign at Pier One and just had to have it for my kitchen. Not because my kitchen decor is Italian~ I'm not sure what 'style' the decorators would call it. A kitchen is 'sposed to be the heart of the home... and it is~ my heart. I guess that would make it a little European, a little southern, some fresh flowers and a glass of wine, coffee in the morning, and lots of laughter with some good home cooking.

Anyway... this little sign called out to me because it reminds me of the 2 weeks I spent cooking in Tuscany, and that makes me smile. When I got it home it just looked lost on the wall. So I fancied it up a little. I took a $4 frame from my favorite 'barn of pottery' (check the tacky Tuscany picture). I used a little spray paint and an extra napkin to use as a mat, then just framed it up.
Don't you think that looks much better?
I am linking up at Kimba's DIY Day... along with hundreds of other bloggers.

Buon Appetito y'all,
Sandi
