THE SUMMER KITCHEN ...



THANKS TO SO MANY OF YOU
who inquired about the event last weekend.

I'll tell you what ... blogger girls rock.
they email, they text, they pray for you,
and they show up!


in a word, they are simply loyal!

and yes, things did go a'flyin' out of the booth ...
 it's kinda sad to see some of the favorites  disappear so quickly.
 (after all that set up)



~~~
enough of that
I feel I've bored you for the last few weeks with 
all this hoop-la.
SO 
onto the thoughts of the summer kitchen

Ya know, sometimes when you're away from your
own surroundings and
under the design spell of someone fabulous
you come home and are
"ready"
perhaps you hadn't even thought of a makeover 
until bam, the light goes on!

I spent Friday night at Susan's home ...

it's an hour commute to where this show was held
so this only made sense.
(actually I invited myself, heehee)

anywho ... she has a butler's pantry to beat the band ...
complete with ovens, apron sink and all the finest extras!
 (notice the french coffee machine)
(that's my fourth cup sitting there)

this room sent my brain into orbit ...

Saturday morning with my fourth cup
of coffee, I pondered the thought of turning
my sunporch into a
summer kitchen.

d.u.h.

Of course, I consulted with Susan and 
she gave the nod!

Here's a little tour of our porch evolution from
 mudroom






to my home office
two years ago ... 
to 

drumroll ... 

the summer kitchen!





















mudroom, turned office, turned
 summer kitchen /butler pantry!

I'm 
ready

ready 
for summer
steaks on the grill
salads
sunshine
perennials ...
and the beauty of the seasons
that God created
for our pleasure!

how's your week shaping up?
