I know that I've been neglecting my blog~and I'm sorry I haven't been keeping up with it better. I have been trying to get some projects done around the house. My number one goal right now is to get my kitchen in good working order.
Buying for my kitchen is something that I love, but it is a small room and I am trying to limit myself to things that I really need. It can only hold so many tins and containers. I'm also trying to cut way back on my coffee habit, so I'm storing my large coffee maker under the counter and only keeping out the four cup maker. I'm the only one in the house that drinks coffee, so it should be plenty for what I need. And I love the idea of a little extra counter space.
I'm looking for any tips that might help with my storage in a small kitchen. If any of you have suggestions, I more than welcome them!
I keep thinking of our pioneer mothers that made do with a spider skillet, a few tin cups, a bowl or two, plates and very limited silverware. Remember how thrilled Laura and Mary Ingalls were when they got their very own cups for Christmas? Somehow, our 'easier' modern life has become more complicated. I'm not ready to go to only a spider skillet and bowl, but I am trying to organize and cut down.
I hope all of you are enjoying some good weather. It is sunny here today, but a little bit on the cool side~lower 50s.
