All of the soggy weather we’ve been having is good motivation to keep moving with my kitchen organization.
My 2nd window eyesore was much worse than my 1st. Yesterday, I fixed that problem.
The Monkey art (birdhouses) received some wood glue and have made their way outside. The yeast tin was cleaned up and put on the 1st windowsill. We’ve planted our seed pots and put them in the living room with our Table O’Seedlings (our seedlings are still inhabiting my living room but are to be transplanted in the garden ASAP). Everything else was trashed or put where it belongs.
I decided my precious mixer needed to be moved and gave it a home under my butcher block table and rearranged the small display shelf immediately to the left of the window.
Ahhhhh. So much better.
I’ll be putting a few potted herbs on the sink under the window mainly because I am sick and tired of buying fresh herbs all of the time (and my thumb isn’t nearly as brown as it used to be).
The shelves have 2 old milk bottles, complete with lids and the Maine Seal in the glass. The large glass jar is a Tom’s peanut container my grandmother gave me. I use it as a cookie jar but my mom remembers it being filled with homemade doughnuts all of the time when she was a kid (I love pieces that have a story – especially when it’s a piece of my family story). A couple of cookbooks and my recipe box round it out. My recipe box got some love and a makeover while I was at it.
Monkey did a number to it on the shelves at the old house. I had to replace a few letters and changed the ribbons. I’ll have red in the kitchen even after we get around to redoing it, so I’ll incorporate red accents now and ignore the orangey-red on the cabinets and walls in the meantime. ;-)
Here’s what I attack today:
It’s the good, the bad and the ugly here, folks.
I’m trying to decide if my Day 7 and final day of this round of organizing should be under my kitchen sink or my junk drawer. Both need a little [lot of] help.
I can’t go wrong with either, that’s for sure.
