Dancin' in the Kitchen

October 27, 2010

I love the days when I enjoy just being at my house getting things done. Its rare to enjoy cleaning but there is a method to it... good ole scream a song and dance around bouncy music. Here are three songs to clean, bounce, drive, and enjoy good weather to: (in order of less favorite to more favorite)

1. Open the all the windows & Sweep the kitchen... instead of watching the video... its out there... but the song will motivate you into movement.

2. Be happy to be in love Music & Clean your closet

3. Get a drink of water and rest- Your house looks great!

My mother the seamstress...

October 25, 2010

I can remember being little and hearing the sewing machine humming in the background over the sound of my cartoons. I can remember endless trips to hang curtains and her sitting on the couch drawing out pictures of how to construct something new... and then joining me watching cartoons while she pulled out her seams to do again. So... now, however many years later, her sewing curtains has turned into embroidery- much cuter! Here are a couple pictures of her creations: Her site is here!

In the "Chi-Chin Store"

October 22, 2010

Did you ever play mall madness? Well the game couldn't say kitchen so it said "Chi-chin" instead. We've (sister and I) kept saying it since then. That one, and "OOOoooo, long line, try again later!"

Anyway, I'm recently in love with Martha Stewart. Did you know she used to be a model?

... hot.
Anyway in the Sept. Magazine of Living she showed her following her beautiful farm kitchen, that just happens to be the best colors ever: gray and white.

Also I found these Kitchen Canisters @ Target that I would buy if I didn't already have canisters... well... I might anyway...
Have a great weekend...
