1. Your decorating tips have me changing some things up around my house. Your idea to corral bottles by the kitchen really helped me pull all my little stuff together on one tray and it looks loads better. I notice you also group “like items” together… whether it’s the red kitchen tools or cutting boards. Things are really more pleasing to the eye when gathered together. Painting the inside of your cupboards white is brilliant! It reflects light back out to you and makes the cabinets seem less cave like. Off to check out your kitchen Pinterest board.

  2. You are amazing! I wish I had one tenth of your decorating talent. Thank you so much for inspiring us.

  3. Your inspiration for keeping kitchen organized is really nice..thank you. Looks great. I, too, picked up a magazine in Walgreens last week while on vacation…it was $15!!! I have all of my old Victoria Magazines that I used to collect..so decided I would just stick with those. I thought when the magazines got up to $10..that was alot. But for me..I keep my favorite ones so guess if we look at it like that..kind of like if we purchase a pet..it brings a lot of joy. About your friend Melanie above and the dark cabinet inside…you could also consider putting lace or some type of doilies inside for lighter coverage. But..it all would depend on if one likes that sort of decor. I love vintage ! I hope Charlie has a good and blessed day. I have senior citizen doggies, along with myself being a senior..its hard when not getting a full night’s sleep. Have a blessed day and thank you for the decor inspiration.

  4. I visit you here and your Pinterest boards specifically for your inspiration. I love your style! I wish I could relax, decorate and stop fretting about what others might think. Sadly, I suffer from fear of judgment and I seek acceptance. Big Sigh!!!

  5. Love your organization ideas and I really like your spice shelves/rack.
    I’m sorry you had a poor sleep night, but happy Charlie boy is doing well. Keeping you all in my thoughts,


  6. I love Pinterest! I do it for the same reason that you do – magazines have gotten so darn expensive! I used to subscribe to quite a few of them. Now the only one that I subscribe to is Country Living. A week ago I saw the autumn edition of a home decor magazine that I used to subscribe to. I thought I would buy it for old times sake, but it was $15!!! Mind you, it still looked like a magazine, not a book.

  7. I’m usually on Pinterest too, going through my boards, to clean them up, deleting things, and always adding new. I enjoyed your kitchen pins, and choose some of those for my kitchen board. Always fun to see what others are pinning, and more fun to get great ideas. Thanks for sharing. Bonnie in WI, where Summer is cooling down, and Fall is in the air.

    1. Charlie is okay. He did have me up nearly every hour last night, so I’m kind of out of it today. Otherwise he has plenty of energy, etc.

  8. Grouping things together, especially in some kind of container, makes everything look pretty and efficient. When you took the doors off your cabinets, were the insides of the cabinets already white or did you paint them? I have 1980’s oak cabinets and since updating those isn’t going to happen for a long time, I’d like to try at least taking a couple of doors off (where my plates, bowls and glasses are stored and going for the open look. However, the insides of my cabinets are brown and ugly. Thanks for any tips!

  9. I love faux plants and flowers. I have been looking for a small mortar & pestle set for a long time also. I’ll have to check in Homegoods. Enjoy your weekend !
