It is Saturday.... Chilly and snowy conditions persist through the remainder of the weekend, perfect for being indoors. And if there was any question about the cold temperatures, the view from my window confirms that I am better off staying warm and cozy in the house.
Feeling focused and happy, I am doing a little cleaning and re-organizing around the kitchen. Cleaning cabinets, dusting china and re-arranging accessories so that I can admire my favorite objects each and everyday. They are after all the very objects that start my day. What my eyes fix on each morning as I enjoy my warm cup of coffee.
Like my pretty bust which I have lovingly named Mina, reminds me of all things delicate and classically elegant. These dried hydrangeas that came from my sister-in-laws garden arranged in a eye catching vintage pitcher warm the heart and satisfy my need to be surrounded by flowers. Classic antique white plates from Mikasa are used on a daily basis. They are both modern and traditional and can easily transform a table from casual to very sophisticated.
Linens in easy fabrics such as cotton paired with vintage flatware give my kitchen charm and a livable quality.
I do appreciate beautiful pieces.. That is why I keep a few of these charming little creamers in my collection. They are excellent for serving syrups, milk and sauces. Plus they make everything appear a little glamorous.
And why not listen to some pretty music while making your home home pretty and tidy.
This was the view from my window today...... No sun in sight today... Frigid winds have arrived. The landscape has changed and it is time for nature to sleep.
We sit and wait for spring to arrive once again.
That was my day friends. Blessings and may your week be a great one.
