I hope everyone is having a great week.
I have my family at home on leave, so they have been keeping me busy with outings and a few home projects.
 Here and there, as I have time, I have been "playing" with my home decor. 

You see, I just recently had a birthday and my wonderful husband and kids, who always 
spoil me tremendously, bought me a new kitchen toy.
I have been wanting one of these for years! :)

Of course, making room for it in my kitchen, "forced" me to make a few changes. :)
 First, I decided to dress up my old jars a little with some new homemade labels.

And grouped it all together under my baking cabinet.
I like the fact that now it is all together in the same area of the kitchen.

The small lamp and other items I had on that counter had to be moved to another area.

The island stayed about the same, the only thing different is the new candle holder my sweet DIL 
gave me also as a gift.

In the breakfast area I added a new runner.
I bought this runner at Ross around last December and planned to use it for the warmer months.
Well, I forgot all about it! Until I came across it the other day while cleaning and organizing my storage closet.


A couple new pillow covers for the window seat.

This week I have also made some small changes to the front entrance, (yes, again) LOL 
and big changes to the back porch. 
I will be sharing with you all as soon as I can get the pictures organized.

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit.
Enjoy the rest of your day!

  8. You will love the new mixer! I wish I had had mine when my children were young and I baked constantly; but it has gotten plenty of use any way! The new table runner is pretty and looks like it could take you right into Fall.
