Remember last July when I pimped my cabinets? Well, they've looked exactly like this for the past year and I walked into the kitchen one day and decided that I was over it. So I took about 20 minutes and got everything down, dusted/washed it, and gave these things a new home (even if it was in the disaster that is our office closet).
So, my cabinets went from this...
Talk about an exciting before and after, ha! I'm thinking I want to start a collection that will live up there. Milk glass, perhaps? But for now, I'm loving how clean it feels.
Probably my favorite thing that was up there is this blue crate I got at an antiques show last year. It's pretty, rustic, and chunky, just the way I like 'em!
I filled four glass vases (already in my stash, from Goodwill) with forsythia and plopped it on my dining room table. I'm thinking I might substitute the forsythia with wheat when September rolls around and this will be a pretty fall centerpiece.
I also promised last week to show you these pretty pinecones I got at a tag sale.
They're solid metal (although not silver, so I'm not really sure what they are) and heavy as can be. I think I paid $5 for this little trio and I love them so much.
If you're wondering where the two other brass candlesticks I got at the tag sale went, I just set them here for now, but I'm thinking they'll play a bigger role in a fall vignette later on.
School is officially back in session now so I have a to-do list a mile long for those three free mornings a week. I've gotten a ton accomplished this week (although nothing I can show you yet - stay tuned for the announcement of my 31 Days of Change topic!) and may even get ahead of schedule (ack, did I just jinx myself?). So anyway, what have you been up to lately? Has school started where you live?
