The kitchen needed a little freshening up (a lot of cleaning up), so I watched the snow fall and listened to the wind while I stayed inside where it was nice and cozy.
With the weather being a bit depressing, I wanted to add a little cheerful color to the kitchen.
It's where I spend most of my time, so it needs to be a happy place.
There must be candles on a cold gray day like today.
And some honey for my tea.
Salad forks in a vintage bowl.
Flea market silver, plates and napkins.
A vintage flowered apron with ruffles.
Now that makes me happy.
A collection of odds and ends silver in an old pot.
I love this old scale. It belonged to my husbands parents.
I have a thing for scales.
There are three of them in my kitchen and several more throughout the house.
Love my coffee too!
A fresh new ribbon for the chicken.
A strip of torn recycled fabric.
A little organizing and a lot of scrubbing.
The freshest thing of all...a little bit of green.
After all of this freshening up, I was too tired to cook dinner.
We ate cereal tonight.
Hope you had a better dinner than mine.
