Black Checks...

Remember about the vintage black and cream checked cookbook I blogged about here? I just wanted to show you how it looks in my home. Look under the white rooster.... Click on any picture to enlarge...




See how good it looks with my black and white checked plates and the smaller rooster plates?


It looks great with the tassel on the door knob too! See the cookbook to the far right of the bookcase with the black and cream border and chef rabbit in the center? The artist that created the cover of the cookbook is our own Kijsa from Kari and Kijsa. Funny thing is I bought the cookbook in my local town long before I knew Kari and Kijsa through their blog!

I think the black and white vintage cookbook is happy to be "home". Don't you think so too?
Welcome Home,
Penny

  7. Penny,

    Love the subtle hints of checks. It looks like something a designer would put together. But your cabinet is special of course, because it holds all the things you love!!

  13. It looks like it fits right in perfectly. I recognized the cookbook as soon as I saw it.

    And, the tassel is wonderful.

  14. A beautiful cabinet just full of eye candy…
    That book was meant to be there
    and because Kijsa designed it the book will have more meaning
    each time you look at it in its new home…

  22. Good Housekeeping Institiute? :) That is SO neat! I love the wire doors too. I have always wanted something like that and they are difficult to find...unless you make it yourself...and so far...I have not done that. I love all your black and white checks. I have only this year gotten into those lovely blacks...lots of plans for it!
    Hugs...
    and smiles...:):)
