An Etsy wish list

My Etsy favorites wishlist is long and varied. But lately it has been focused on one thing - the kitchen. We are moving in just a couple weeks into an 80 year old house, and the kitchen needs some new paint, a good scrub, and some pops of fun, cheerful color (especially yellow!) to bring it back to life.
Here is what my kitchen needs to resuscitate it for under $100 at Etsy.com -

This sunny yellow linen tea towel from Sweet Natured Designs ($16.00)



This pretty blue (or maybe the white? I am still undecided!) unpaper (cloth) towel dispenser from Made in the Red Barn ($36.00)


An adorable ginko leaf plate to use as a spoon rest from Sumiko ($12.00) -



Reusable cloth, waterproof bowl and pan covers from Sew Much Style ($30) Seriously, how cheery would it be to open up the fridge and see these? -


And lastly, to keep my hands happy with all the scrubbing I'll be doing in this kitchen, some lovely, all natural soap from Simply Suds Handmade Soap ($4.00) -


Wasn't this fun? Even better, if you do the same, you can be entered to win everything on your $100 or less list! Just head over to Craft Gossip, read the entry rules, and get list making! I totally want to win my list (and my new kitchen wants me to as well - it told me) but good luck to you too!
