The kitchen

We’ve been working on the banks along the creek; removing all the underbrush and cleaning the area off of debris and such, so that we can add some prettiness there. I am adding some hostas in the shady side under the privets and some Shasta Daisies on the other side where is sunny and clear. And today we planted some butterfly bushes. We have also planted what I have been dreaming of planting for the longest time ever and never had the opportunity to do it simply because they don’t do good up north—the Crepe Myrtle. I am excited. My hypothalamus is overworked, sending off messages over messages to my sweat glands, and my body is tired. It is definitely a bath house out there, but we keep planting, digging, tearing down, building up, weeding, soil pepping and frolicking about the wild garden like a couple of sun-loving green thumbs fairies. I’m so loving our little piece of earth on this world… 

And inside the house… oh dears, I’m dancing with joy. Why? Because my kitchen cabinet doors have finally arrived!! Yes yes they have! They have been installed and I’m frantically wholly absolutely happily in love… 


A lot of work and a lot of waiting, but I cannot begging to tell you how overjoyed I am with the results… remember how my little kitchen looked originally?

Hard to believe this is the same kitchen... 


I'm so loving it... I cannot stop changing things around and taking pictures

  1. So pretty Cielo. The kitchen is the heart of the home and where the day befit and and ends... Having a Greta kid-then makes it all better.
    My lavender crepe myrtle is just starting to bloom. I have deep reds and a peach as well. Enjoy.

  3. Oh my, what a difference from the black and white kitchen you started out with! The new kitchen looks just lovely Cielo, and it emanates so much warmth! They did a great job matching those cabinet doors!

  4. I just love before and afters and your kitchen is beautiful. So fresh and bright and cheerful. It makes me want to cook something and I am not a big fan of cooking these days. The new cabinet doors are just what was needed, they provided just the right balance. I will be checking my mailbox daily for your dinner invitation...
    Happy cooking

  8. Cielo, your kitchen is so pretty and inviting! Love the colors you chose. I am thinking of doing a kitchen renovation and wondered what your countertop is called and the color of it. May God bless you as you entertain your friends there.

  9. I'm so glad to know that your kitchen has been given a new life. It's amazingly different from its previous design, but I say that it changed for the better. It looks broader and cleaner now. I can just imagine how proud you are with your new kitchen. Thanks for sharing that, Cielo! All the best to you!
