An Anniversary gift that leads to a makeover

I have had these prim stars for a few years now and have always intended on painting them.  It wasn't until this weekend that I finally painted them, all because of an Anniversary present that Cody got me!
I painted the stars gray, pink and aqua.  My favorite colors and those colors match the gift that I got for my 6th Anniversary! 
Cody was so sweet and bought me this super adorable set.  It is an apron, 2 dish towels, 4 pot holders and 2 oven mitts.  He knows me so well and picked out the Paris design.  Since I wanted to hang my new goodies on my little vintage shelf, I had to paint my stars to match. 
The pink polka dots, gray Eiffel towers and the tiny little aqua dots are so cute. This corner of my kitchen is the cutest spot now.  Cody is a smart guy...buying me such adorable kitchen things guarantees that I will be in the kitchen whipping up something delicious! 
These below are the kitchen towels.  They are square and I probably won't use them as kitchen towels but maybe as napkins instead.  I might have to set a pretty little Paris and pink table soon. 
There are 2 Eiffel Tower pot holders, 2 pink polka dot pot holders, 1 polka dot oven mitt and 1 Eiffel Tower oven mitt.  Aren't those little pink bows precious? They are so pretty that I might have a hard time using them. 
Last night instead of going out to dinner, we stayed home and made our most favorite dinner of all. 
 Grilled Ribeye
BBQ Shrimp
Lemon Pepper Asparagus
Fried Potatoes
French Bread
And Lemon Meringue Pie for dessert
We love to cook together and we make some delicious food if I do say so myself! 
Thank you Cody for such a lovely Anniversary gift! I love that you know me so well.  Six years have come and gone and I am so glad that I get to spend the rest of my life with you! 
Today we are taking it easy.  I am going to sit out on the patio, sip some tea and catch up on my Romantic Homes magazines.  Have a great week!
