The dungeon make that KITCHEN is finally finished! I’ve shared some pics along the way, but thought I’d show you the end result. First of course, you ask WHY am I on the computer on Memorial Day? A holiday? Well, when it looks like this outside, inside is the best place to be:
Yes, that was the rain that changed my holiday plans this morning! I went from “Oh I’m going to weed, and mow, and then take a swim” to “Yikes, I’m staying INSIDE” with the first crash of thunder and downpour!
So, instead of playing in my yard (yes, weeding is playing for me as I love my gardens) I finished off the kitchen. Which was on the agenda for today, just later today. Like tonight, after dark! Instead it’s done early and I like LOVE it! Between the new lighting and the bright paint, I have a kitchen that no longer feels like a dungeon to walk into!!
This is my “collection” area (or one of them). In this hutch I have dishes from my grandmother and dishes and cups from Mike’s mum as well as part of my oil lamp collection. (and Mike’s Tim Horton mugs!)
Then there’s this corner! It was so dark before you couldn’t even see the corner hutch, let alone notice that it has treasured family hand-downs in it Notice I didn’t say treasures, but rather treasured? I’m sure many of these are worth 10cents or less and can easily be found in thrift shops, but to me they are memories and that makes them treasured.
Whoops, I meant to put the swiffer mop away before I took that last picture! LOL And that’s life at Goneaway Quilting, one day it’s quilts, another it’s home stuff and it’s always got something silly about it!!!!!
