I'm lov'in my stove board...

that Mike made for me. I have been arranging things around a little in my kitchen this weekend. I finished up some prim sunflowers to add around my new boards. And I tried hand at the pantry cakes. I had a muffin tin that I liked the looks of. You all were right, they were easy to make! I will probably add some cheese cloth to some of them later.
This board is sitting on my kitchen bar. The little galvanized bucket holds napkins.

This has been a favorite! I took and idea from someones blog and bought an oil bottle at Walmart and added an old label I have had and put my dish soap in it. It sits on my window sill. I really like it there. I was going to make a label that said something about dish soap, but I had this one and I like the looks of it.


I have had fun decorating my newly painted dining room table. I found this set of scales a few tag sales ago for $7.00. I set a few things around it. I bought the carrots at Hobby Lobby. I love them sitting on the candle board! I have so enjoyed the real sunflowers I dried. I sprayed them with a sealer and have used them to decorate alot.




I also added an old wooden crate to the top of my icebox. I put some of my old tins in it. I don't have to get up in that cabinet much. I keep my light bulbs and plastic cups and silverware up there. Well that's about all here. The temp has been so cold all day today. That wind was blowing so hard. It is suppose to warm up as the week goes along. Wed. it should be in the 70's. I'm so sick of this cold weather. I won't complain once because of the heat this summer!! Well it's almost 7:00 and I need to go in there and clean up the dinner dishes. Have a great week~

I love all of your little groupings! Everything looks so nice :)

I really need to do something more with my noodle board on my stove. It looks so boring and plain when I see others. I need to brainstorm!

Have a great day :)
