The winter doldrums are a time when homeowners begin to think seriously about sprucing up their dark, dank domiciles with a remodel. According to our sources at home improvement stores, January through March are popular months for inside renovations, particularly those of a kitchen kind.
Makes sense, if you think about it. Contractor rates can be more negotiable for “inside jobs” while the weather outside is frightful. The weather also keeps homeowners inside working on tasks, rather than outdoors puttering in the garden. Plus homeowners can put their tax refunds to good use with a big home improvement project.
We have some great gift ideas for friends or family undertaking a kitchen remodel. Why not present them with My Little Kitchen Fairies figurines (aka MLKF) designed by artist GG Santiago. Or, even better, reward yourself with a set for being the domestic diva you surely are (or imagine yourself to be.)
Fairies are naturally attracted to the kitchen, and are especially fond of baking. Of course, Kitchen Fairies come with their own peculiar baggage. Most are helpful, though there are a few that are mischievous and playful.
On the other end of the spectrum are the mischievous fairies. They seem to thrive in mess and disorder, and have been known to cause chaos in the kitchen. They are the Valentine Cupid Fairie, the Swiss Cheese Fairie, and theTaffy Puller Fairy.
A kitchen that is blessed with fairy helpers always seems warm, inviting, and often smells like fresh baked bread. Whatever suits your fancy, there’s a MLKF waiting to make your kitchen a place where magic happens.
