This is a classic childhood toy, I know I had one way back when (way, WAY back when) and my kids did too. My youngest daughter really went to town with hers and made everyone in the family some fancy, shmancy pot holders.
I never used my set but kept them put away for years. My youngest is now 24 years old (how in the world did that HAPPEN?) and I found these when I de cluttered the kitchen drawers. So of course I had to do something with them and display them in my newly RED kitchen because they matched so perfectly.
Luckily, I had this black and red matte and black frame from a thrift store trip and even tho the matte is wider on one side than the other, I knew it was perfect for this little project. I like it. I like it alot!
And just to give the weaver her due, I posted a little label for all to see. It is such a cheery piece that has really given that narrow bit of wall space a good brightening up. And as you can see....
The colors are perfect for my red kitchen! The red with dark distressing kindly covers up a multitude of cabinet sins and the color really pops. It's just as bright and cheery as Katy's potholders, and we'll keep it this way for awhile.
I'm linking up to the fun blog parties listed on my sidebar, including a couple of new ones. Please come visit and see all the cool projects. I'm sure you'll be inspired!
