A bit of whimsy

I bought these two items from Etsy today. Doesn't the squirrel look like he'll knock your block off if you take his nut? I just love it! I have decided on a whimsical woodland theme for the kitchen with red walls, butter yellow cabinets with punched tin inlays, and accents of olive green, orange and turquoise. Sound like too many colors? Not if you love color like me! I will be making the tin inlays myself this winter if all goes as planned. I have 12 upper cabinet doors to put them on so am thinking about having each one represent a month in the year keeping with the woodland theme...gnomes, owls, squirrels, strawberries and such. I am super excited. I have never done anything like the tin inlays but can't wait to get started!
