Some kitchen peeks and random
because I’m good enough, I’m smart enough,
and gosh darn it, people like photos of real kitchens.
Nothing major done lately, but painting the walls
a custom grey (somewhere between Benjamin Moore’s
Ashley Gray and Hampton Beige) added interest.
We had the harvest table and bench
custom made in the ’90s from
reclaimed barn wood.
Because it’s soft pine, the kids left
behind all kinds of ‘engravings’ from
their homework. Pretty cool.
Still totally easy to clean.
Still spacious enough for teenish boys
to walk on their hands.
Work in progress.
Need drapes. Hated the rug.
Made dinner for some friends
Sunday night and needed it to
look less ‘work in progress’ so I threw
a dropcloth runner on the table,
some old French sheets on the chairs,
and a ratty cableknit throw on the bench.
The dinky backsplash will probably go byebye.
Its travertine looks great with the quartz,
but I’m thinking tile it to the ceiling!
My sweet girl turned 10.
My living room is empty ‘cept for a shabby sofa.
Tell miss clueless what to do in here cuz it’s a huge room,
and I’m at the brainstorm stage.

Off of the kitchen is this screen porch
where we frolicked (baby sister from Arizona
was visiting last week…the conversation
is never lifeless or boring)!
I’ll add linen drapes in here,
but seriously I need your help
designing a living room.
You already know I like neutrals,
serene, ethereal, and no clutter.
Peace to you right where you are.
