I was so excited this week to have finally been able to start to put things back into the kitchen. Up until Tuesday we had a giant stack of boxes in the corner of this room. It felt very good to declutter our keeping room and make it pretty again. And I LOVE to organize so I was excited to find a home for everything in the freshly painted cupboard in the kitchen (will show the cupboard in the next post).
I didn't have the heart to make my cat move for this picture, she was soaking up the sun....can't blame her:)
I kept to my usual palette of mostly white with wheat colors and wood tones mixed in and then added some touches of Thanksgiving time.
I was so excited to find this linen hand towel with "Happy Thanksgiving" embroidered on it at Hobby Lobby. I know I am always going on about it but I can hardly ever find tasteful holiday decor so I was excited to find these. I hung it with some late 1800's linen dish clothes on this old herb drying rack (so sorry Tracy). I painted the little tote "Sisal" and then added some pumpkins and Indian corn.
And I found a new place for my crocks, I LOVE crocks.
Another find that I am very excited about is the antique basket pictured below. I got it for 50 cents at the Goodwill the other day. I filled it with all my of wheat colored ticking fabrics that I am slowly finding here and there, yet another thing that is so hard to find but shouldn't be.
In my next post I will show pictures of how the kitchen/great room is coming along! Have a great weekend...and please check out my friend Debi's blog 7grands.blogspot.com, she has so many wonderful ideas.
