A Little More Tweaking in the Kitchen

 
Making a few more changes in the kitchen today. . . .adding a primitive, unfinished painting I picked up at a thrift store for 50 cents. . . .rearranging crockery. . . .adding a huge 'bouquet' of cotton bolls. . . .taking the chair aprons off. . . .geraniums to the bathroom window sill.
 
A friend of John's will be coming this weekend to help with the log cabin. . . .I couldn't picture them sitting on the apron chair covers. . . .Can you? (Apron Slipcovers) . . .Or, maybe I CAN picture it. . . .A funny sight for sure (giggle). . . .I thought they'd appreciate it if the aprons were gone. . . .I took the geraniums out of harm's way, too. . . .You can't be too careful when men get together!
 
 

 
I tried to make things a little more masculine. . . .No roses in the pitcher. . . .Just plain and simple. . . Stalks of Cotton were my choice for the table. . . .I figured guys could relate to that. . . .I've never used Cotton any time other than the Fall, but I think I like the look for Summer, too. . . .To me, it's just as beautiful as any flower. . . .I am a Cotton Farmer's Daughter through and through. . . .I love Cotton!
 
 
 
 
I'm heading out to the local thrift stores. . . .No more 'to do' list until next week. . . .One of the stores is closing tomorrow. . . .and the other is on the verge. . . .I need to visit with the ladies who have done such a wonderful job in running them for many years. . . .I'll certainly miss them.
 
The only certain thing about Life is that it constantly changes. . . .(sigh). . . .
 


On a happier note. . . .The sun is shining. . . .The temps are perfect. . . .The flowers are blooming. . . .The birds are singing. . . .And, I have junkin' to do! . . .'To-do'? . . .That wasn't on my list was it? . . .(wink). . . .I think this just might be the best weekend we've had in a long time. . . . .Why don't you get out and have a great one, too? . . .You deserve it!
 
Til next week. . . .

I love your kitchen. Where do you get your cotton. I think it works for all seasons. So nice to have a clear list. Have fun shopping.

That cotton is beautiful! Being from Wisconsin, we see corn, corn, corn, soybeans, and little else for crops.

I agree, the cotton is as pretty as any flower!
Your tweaking looks great.

I love the cotton bouquet. It's simply beautiful. I understand when favored shops close how you can miss them so much. We see it happen in our town often and then a new one opens up. It's not easy running a small business these days. Have a wonderful weekend. Give Boo a hug for me. Deb

I love the basket of cotton bolls. Too bad that the junk stores are closing. I hope you find some treasures. Have a wonderful weekend!

Gail said...

I love your kitchen and your display of cotton! My husband bought me a bouquet of cotton bolls for our anniversary two years ago and I still have them displayed! I think cotton works for all seasons. Enjoy your weekend, Gail

Patti said...

Your home is just beautiful! And the cotton is perfect. My house is quite feminine, and I do worry about my husband, but he says he doesn't mind. I have found inspiration here! Happy Friday!

Martha Ellen said...

Your kitchen is always lovely! The cotton bouquet is just perfect for your table. I love your style. ♥

I like the cotton on the table. I couldn't do that with my cotton as Kit Kat would be on the table in no time to check it out. Have fun junkin'!

You're such a thoughtful hostess. Making the setting more masculine for you guests.
I think the cotton is beautiful as any flower too!

I love your finds and envy that you are going junking this morning. I fell two days ago so I am resting my leg and I am sore (just burns me up that I was careless and tripped). No junking for me today, and it is just beautiful outside.

I love the cotton too any time of year and it's pretty mixed with the red and green at Christmas. We don't have cotton in our area but I did buy some seed and going to try to start a little patch in a an old garden spot!

Your cotton is lovely! And yes, I do like the look for Summer too.
You made me laugh by saying Summer, we are 47 degrees with a cold rain today, the daffodils are just starting to bloom and we are still waiting on leaves on trees.......

I love your pie safe and pottery / bowl collection, just lovely. Great display, too, with the cotton.
