BRING ON THE HOLIDAYS WITH A DESIGNATED BAKING AREA!
Hello welcome.....wondering ,did you see November coming in cause I sure didn't. Baking is in full swing here and I just wanted to prep an area with everything I needed at my fingertips to bake without having to scurry around from cabinet to cabinet when time isn't always on my side . What better place than a good sized bakers rack.
The mixer is first priority, and attachments this Kitchen aide is wonderful even working with fresh doe. hand mixing tools, measuring cups and spoons, a sifter,cookie cutters , an apron and plenty of dishtowels.
All baking pans, loaf pans etc are stored on the two shelves underneath along with serving trays and a couple of cutting boards.
I bought the small glass chalkboard jars at Walmart for 2$ for 4 in a little metal handled tray a great clearance find. I have put items such as baking powder, soda, and salt so far as I go along I will add nuts and chocolate chips etc. in the other jars.
Big jars of flour and sugar and of course rolling pins.
Notice my sign ? so far no one has applied
The 2 drawers are filled with spices and the dish towels.
The island is close enough where I can place cooling racks as I retrieve oven goodies.
Today Apple Crostata! Love baking with apples How about You?
Thanks for visiting until next time happy baking!
Welcome brrrrrrr! its cold here in S. W. Florida and everywhere for that matter hope you are as warm as can be. This winter I wanted to go with a winters farm theme. I crafted a sign my imaginary WinterCrest Farm and all the farm items to go with it . I painted things I had been saving when I conjured up this idea months ago.
So my kids thought I was crazy saving the Mrs. Butterworths plastic bottles but I gave them a coat of black chalk paint and added the price seemed fitting because the farm sign says pure maple syrup.
White lights and a few baron branches to give the winter glow
This little ceramic piggy bank also got a lick of paint
I added my vintage wooden breadbox filled with raffia and some blue and white dishware
A simple rag garland
So this mantle display did not cost me any money just stuff I was saving and some paint and an old piece of wood !
Hi there ! welcome to my kitchen where you can find any gadget you may need and also usually something tasty cooking. Don't mind me though my clothes are paint stained my hands well Ill hide those you sure don't want to see them after cutting wood ,sanding painting etc. I should be arrested for having hands like this lol. So I have crafted, bought and repurposed everything here. A trip to Target was fun I scanned all the clearance in the home dept . I bought 3 lovely green dishes , a wonderful candle and 2 very large kitchen towels all for about 14 $ . All which is used in the kitchen. Lets take a peek....Love to offer you a tea and a fresh bagel...……..
This luscious smelling candle was a Target find
I decided to go for a chunky lace curtain until Fall isn't that crazy we go from less is more to Chunky!
An old wooden box holds some vintage apple dishes and other vintage odds n ends
These 3 crazy shaped dishes which are now my favorites were also a Target find
Hi there welcome! Hope everyone is enjoying the day. Lets talk Shiplap for a bit, I was thinking that Joanna Gaines of Fixer Upper was maybe just a tiny bit over doing it with her shiplap but let me tell you she has introduced a wonderful way to explode your home with vintage style and beauty her excitement is fully understood now.....thank you Joanna for introducing me anyway to such a smashing wall finish.
So this is something I wanted to try for a bit , I have a huge wall in the kitchen that I cant really remedy meaning everything I do there I really am not happy with until now that is........people all you need is a paintbrush measuring tool lots of masking tape, dark paint and light paint and you can achieve the "shiplap look". Lets take a look
ok so this is just a flat black painted wall and you do need a dark base color or if you prefer use a light base color and dark on top but the most important trick to all this is CONTRAST For this Faux shiplap application …
