If you were my neighbor…
…and you needed ketchup (catsup)…
you would be in luck.
Seems that I have 3 full bottles.
Why would I have 3 full bottles, you ask?
Because, until last week,
my pantry was a TOTAL DISASTER!
But, blog world totally inspired me…
…and I have a very handy dad
I’m so glad you are here!
Welcome to my kitchen.
I wish I could fix you a glass of sweet tea
so you could sit here while I shared a little bit about my kitchen with you. . .
I am not a musical person.
I did not come from a musical family.
I will never forget the first time my family sang Happy Birthday to my new sister-in-law.
She played the piano.
She did come from a musical family.
And, there she stood. . .
wide-eyed. . .
stunned. . .
not sure whether to laugh or to run,
as me, my mom, dad and brother did our best to croak the song out.
Luckily, she had already married my brother,
so there was no turning back!
I think shopping for a rug is the equivalent to
shopping for blue jeans. . .
You need the item,
you just can’t seem to find one that will do?
I have been rug shopping for a year.
On and off.
Why couldn’t I find a rug (or jeans)?
1. I am cheap.
2. I measured and remeasured trying to find the perfect fit.
3. I wanted something basic, yet with personality.
4. Did I mention that I am cheap?
I am so excited!
I just got some new colors of Miss Mustard Seed milk paint!
Kitchen Scale and Ironstone.
(I have used Boxwood once before on a chair.)
So, I was looking for a project.
As I was looking around my house,
I noticed the mess that was on my kitchen table.
That is when inspiration struck.
I see all of these beautiful, neutral rooms that I LOVE.
So, I begin to remove all bright colors from my rooms.
Then, I see a great lamp at the thrift store.
It is beautiful.
I cannot resist.
I fully intend on selling it,
or using it in a client’s house.
