Is your kitchen a fun place to be?  I sure hope so.  Most of us spend lots of time there.  When people come to the Farmhouse…they generally go straight to the kitchen.  I am good with that.  I try to make our kitchen a happy place to be. Most of you probably remember, a couple of months back, when we painted our kitchen.  I love it…so much.  The white just makes everything stand out.  Do me a favor. If your paint color doesn’t make you happy…change it.  Paint is really an inexpensive face lift.  Save back a few bucks a week and you will have enough, before you know it, to buy paint.  I promise, you will love it!

Sometimes, when I go junking, I have a hard time saying no to kitchen junk.  It’s my absolute fave.  I love vintage kitchen things to decorate with.  The thing about that it, I love a simple look, so I have to make sure that I am choosey.

I have probably already told you this, sometimes I forget…after all of these posts, but a while back I weeded out my kitchen.  I took the things off the tops of the cabinets that I didn’t really love and kept only the things that I really needed on the counters.  Do you ever watch Sarah Carey cooking videos?  I get those sent to my email.  I know that it’s a test kitchen of sorts, but I love the simplicity.  I love the little pots of herbs and the utensils.

I have a challenge for you.  Walk into your kitchen and clear out anything that doesn’t make you happy.  I promise…you will love it.  It will make you feel like you just took a deep breath.

When we painted our kitchen I decided to take the plates out of the plate rack that had been there for years.  I got a wild hair and replaced them with some of my favorite cookbooks.  I love the difference.  Looking at all of the bright colors against the white, makes me feel happy.

As you can tell, this is not so much a DIY blog.  It’s really just more about inspiration.  If photos of our home and the way that things can be arranged put a little idea in your head…then my job is done.  Those are the blogs I love.  The ones with good photography and inspiration.   BTW:  I have been trying to figure out the color that I want to keep for my badge.  I’m kind of digging the gray.  We shall see. 🙂

I hope that your kitchen makes you feel happy,
