Hello scrappy friends. Still no LO to share, however I did take a break from cleaning today and went to visit my parents. Tomorrow is small repairs day. Well, I won't actually be doing the repairs but I will be a helpful assistant. I think??? Maybe more of a nattering wife. ;)
Due to the overwhelming response of interest and excitement in my sparkly clean kitchen, I have decided to post some photos. I'm really not sure that this will be as exciting as blogging about scrapping but, we will give it a go! ;)
Here is my kitchen in all its glory of cleanliness and organization. Trust me, it never looks like this on a day to day basis. It faces south and I broke every decorating rule in deciding to paint it a warm golden colour but, I LOVE it.
Now for the close ups!!! See, it's just like posting a LO. ;)
Here is my stove. I actually used proper stove top cleaner on the top. Haven't done that for a while. You know when you haven't used the ketchup bottle for some time and then if you forget to shake it, you get that liquid that comes out first.... yeah, that happened with my cleaner. :( Notice the tea towel all fancy folded? If I can paper pleat a border, I can do this!
Oh, more decorative towels! :)
Here is my little counter top display. That hot plate is my way of telling prospective buyers that I care enough about my counter tops to never place hot pots on them. I think the black really anchors the look. (hee hee)
Here is my fridge minus it's usual array of tacky retail magnets. I shoved them all to the back of the side of the fridge. ;) Don't you just love the amount of white space here?
Next is my little shelf. Such a kitchy, I mean kitcheny display. I got rid of the straggly hanging plant that was past it's prime. (Are we having fun yet?)
Here is the table top. Love the mix of the zen tealight holders with the earthy place mats. (Okay, this really is not as much fun as sharing a LO!! )
Last is my favourite corner. Don't you love how the label of the dishwashing liquid matches the colour of the hand soap? They sit so nicely on the little black tray. I think that Martha would approve and I will not be at all surprised if I get a call from the Good Housekeeping reward team, letting me know that I will be receiving a prize! LOL Notice the shine on the wooden window ledge? I was feeling like a pioneer woman as I lovingly buffed it to a shine with lemon oil!
Yes, every inch of this kitchen has been cleaned to a shine. Thanks for taking this tour through my kitchen and if this post has anyone feeling that they may want to start spring cleaning their kitchen, run, run away!! Run as fast as you can to your scrappy area. Begin working on a wonderful scrappy project and forget about this silly thought of being in the kitchen. It really is not much fun at all!! :(
Happy Scrapping!! Jen :)
