Happy New Year!
Hope your year ended on a positive note
and that you had a lovely time celebrating
and ringing in 2017.
Looking forward to a
fresh brand new year?
I certainly am!
Staying hopeful, grateful, and faithful.
Praying that all of us will
move through the next twelve months
with good health
finding more time for family and friends
and the things that truly matter.
Reflecting on how precious life is
and to be mindful of the good things
that each day has to offer.
Trying not to fret over
what I cannot control --
to not sweat the little stuff.
Deja vu all over again.
Have been busy here today and yesterday
cleaning and putting things
back in their pre-holiday places.
|Cannot believe that my two 13-year-old palmetto trees are still alive and kicking.|
Got them the year we moved in at Target! Remember when Target used to sell houseplants?
Our Christmas tree was raining pine needles
or it would have stayed
in place until mid-January,
but the house has been dry
so the tree and fresh greens we brought in
quickly became the same.
So here we are in the kitchen.
I had to dismantle the built-in hutch
to clean up all the little faux snow flakes
that always seem
to get into
every little nook and cranny.
|These little flakes are so cute but they do get everywhere!|
I decided to bring in some additional things
for the rearrangement. Got excited
(looking at Pinterest inspirations)
to move out the K-cup coffee maker
and create more
of a baking station look.
(Why not? Maybe I will be more
inspired to bake?)
|Had to throw in a little plaid! :D|
|Notice my great grandmother's large flat noodle board in the back of the lower shelf?|
Love that thing. Has a rolling pin that goes with it -- same length as the board.
my husband walked in and said,
Where is the coffee stuff
going to be now?
Why are we changing this?"
|Found this little wooden drawer box with marble top|
this past summer at a flea market.Great layering possibilities.
Does this happen at your house?
So back to the functioning
morning coffee set up!
So much for a new 2017
fresh look? :D
