Good morning, friends!
It looks like winter has finally arrived around here.We woke up today to a very surprising 38 degrees. 
Kind of funny since just Sunday we were in the high 80's.
But that's Texas for you!
I have been moving things around in my kitchen again,( I know you are not surprised) trying to clear the counter space a little and make room for the upcoming holidays meals and entertainment.

My butler's pantry sits unused half of the time, so I decided to put that space to good use.
Let me show you what I did, it is nothing fancy, but I think it will work better for our family and guests.

I placed the Keurig in the center and next to it an old tray with everything needed to make a nice cup of coffee.

On the other side of the coffee maker I added a small frame that I bought at Kirklands years ago 
and a new lamp I recently bought at Ross.
I have been looking for a little lamp that would fit under the cabinets and this mercury one just caught my eye.

And that's it. 
A simple arrangement that I hope will make our guest this holiday season feel welcome.
Meanwhile, we are enjoying this new space ourselves. :)

Thank you all for stopping by! 
See you soon!

  9. That's such a great idea, Maria Elena! It like that it is easily accessible and you have everything anyone could need right at their finger tips.
