~White Wednesday # 141~

Just about the time I'm really ready for some warmer weather, we get freezing temps and snow!!  I guess I'll just have to enjoy Spring inside for a while which is why I always like to buy tulips this time of year.

I love how they look next to my silver collection and white pitchers in my dining room.  I hope you are all staying warm and have some beautiful blooms to enjoy!  xoxo K.

Well I'm barely getting my February featured blog in since tomorrow is the last day of the month, but it will be worth your wait.  I've always admired Pam at White Ironstone Cottage's clean fresh look.  With Spring just around the corner you might get some great ideas from her.  Please hop over and take a peak at what she's been up to:-)

I also just recently added the Linky Followers button to my sidebar if anyone would like to join me there and a big "Thank You" to all your lovely comments about my kitchen.  It really helps to keep me motivated because I have a lot more to do!

~Kitchen Update~

Since I shared a little bit of my new shelf in my kitchen the other day, I thought I'd show you some photos of my kitchen area with a couple changes I've recently made. 

I painted the cupboard along the long wall from a creamy yellow to white, added the new shelf made from my chippy, peely architectural corbels and also moved the small table that used to be my island underneath the chalkboard.

I had this wonderful table up in my booth for a couple months and no one wanted her.  I have to say that I was thrilled because I thought of the perfect place in the middle of the kitchen.  I had one bench that fit underneath one side and would like to put a bistro chair on the other side:-)

Another new find is this wonderful french bottle drying rack that I just got at a little french sale close to my home and it fit perfectly on this small table.  Thanks Amy:-)

This area of my home is constantly changing, but that's what I love about it.  I have to warn you...I got a little camera happy.  Enjoy! xoxo K. 

I will be linking up with Donna at Funky Junk Interiors for Sat. Nite Special for her Picture Perfect #2 section.

~White wednesday #140~

I've always been drawn to the chippy peely white paint on architectural pieces.  I was lucky enough to come across two great corbels last summer that had that perfect patina.  I wanted to make a shelf out of them for my kitchen and my husband finally got it up.

I'm sharing just a few sneak peeks with you since it isn't completely like I'd like it yet, but hope to share this whole area in my kitchen by the end of the week, so you'll just have to stop back by:-)

I'm also using this wonderful tote to hold some of my transferware dishes and bread boards.  Enjoy!  xoxo K.

~White Wednesday #139~

I've been absent from blogland lately dealing with some family issues and hope to be able to share more soon.  I did finally get another camera so I thought I'd share some photos of the beautiful white roses my husband gave me today.

I decided to put them in this large urn that I recently picked up underneath our chalkboard in the kitchen.  I haven't had time to play with this camera yet, so not the best quality photos, but I'm looking forward to playing around with it.  Enjoy!  xoxo K.

Wishing everyone a Happy Valentine's Day!

~White Wednesday # 138~

I wanted to thank everyone who came out to the Junk Salvation  show this last weekend.  I had a wonderful time selling lots, meeting new people and reconnecting with old friends.  Linda and Dixie were so sweet and helpful and these ladies know how to put on a great show.

I didn't have a camera, but asked the ever so sweet Amanda at Girl in Pink if she wouldn't mind taking a few shots so I could share with you today.  I was happy with how everything came together and even happier with how much of my stuff  went to a new home.  Enjoy!  xoxo K.
