Less around the kitchen

With a kitchen counter remodel you have to remove all your counter top stuff.  I recommend you do this  just for fun about once a year to purge.  Because, I did not put back half the things I removed during the remodel.  I'm recycling tons of stuff to GW and Craigslist.

And also, now when I reach for things at Homegoods, Marshalls or Target, I stop and ask myself why? It works and new stuff doesn't hardly ever come home with me now.

Here are a few of the changes I made.

Mardi Gras crowns in a glass house and some of my favorite creamers.

The coffee area changed to another corner of the kitchen.  Still in love with my Annie Sloan, Old White cabinets.

And yes, a wooden cheese box makes a nice wine/napkin holder.

A select group of cookbooks got to stay stacked by the window.

Old family crocks are now holding my stash of wine corks.  You never know when you might need one or one hundred of those, right?

And yes, the outdoor chairs, being used indoors are so comfortable.  Maybe someday they will make it outside.  My Tuesday Morning clearance pillows are perfect on them too.

Nothing new, I just house shopped.  Yay me!  


  1. Look fabulous. Love your vignettes, they are wonderful. Hugs, Marty

  2. You and me, both, Lori. I have been purging and NOT buying for quite a while. If I don't NEED it I don't buy it anymore. Weird-from this shopper/spender/lover of accent pieces. I don't miss it either really- xo Diana

  4. I agree with Kristopher. Getting creative with your accessories can really make your countertops more beautiful. I saw some boring countertops lately and I'm sure they need some renovation. Hehe! Well, just make sure you built a strong countertop before anything else.
