With all the horrifying news coming out of Haiti, I find it very hard to blog. Everything I do seems trivial. But I have noticed I am now craving beautiful images. I spend way more time than I should looking at all your beautiful sites, and they make me smile. I am wishing I can put a smile on your face for a bit too.
I stumbled upon a cabinet that I thought might just possibly work in my pantry. My in-laws (thank you, Dave and Kathy...) sent us a check for Christmas, and I have been just waiting for the right purchase to come along. I found it, on sale, in all its glory! And I am so excited... I now have my farmhouse pantry.
The most miraculous part of the whole thing is that not only did we manage to get it home in one trip (it's huge, eight feet high!), my husband did not complain one bit about having to strap it to the top of my car and drive 35 miles down the interstate with it, and that he loves it as much as I do! Miracle of miracles!!! And thank you, Honey, so wonderful of you to put up with me.
I am now using it as my baking station, I actually have to pull myself out of that room now as I love it so much. I was going to buy brand new cabinets and put in there, but this piece has a story with it. I am sure it is going to whisper it to me on some quiet day...
The rolling pin and the colander belonged to my husband's grandma. I rescued them from the garbage pile when we were moving her. Her colander stores my baking powder and brown sugar. I adore having some of her things in there with me.
The rest of the cubbies are hard at work. I love that it is pretty and practical at the same time.
