Re decorating the kitchen..GOOD CLEAN UP!! SATISFYING!!
















Well it is Saturday..and with hubby away...I either tend to get into a MODE of doing EBAY all day....OR CLEANING....AND today I have shifted/changed/brought in new stuff....re MY KITCHEN...






I am giving it a GOOD spring clean...as it seems to get sooo dirty....sooo quickly...






PLUS I was tired of my arrangement on the furniture re plates/photos etc..






I went to my local gift shop and bought a few nice NEW white modern frames...and of course a photo i HAVE had on my fridge for ages of SOOTY was the FIRST to find his new home in one of these frames....



also bought some nice simple white placemats....






I bought lots of jonquils....(they along with lavender and sunflowers ARE MY FAVOURITE FLOWERS...of course I love roses as well...BUT i just have this THING for FRANCE..and of course the first two flowers are quite synonomous with france)......






I also bought some lovely and quite dainty pale pink gerberas...I have them scattered individually in little glass votives along my kitchen window...






So i am having a nice day...changing my kitchen around...and kind of re living my days when I had a gift shop and was continually changing my displays,..,..I guess OLD habits are difficult to change!!!!!!






put some photos up of my kitchen......feel free to comment one way or another!!

Hi Andrea
You've certainly achieved heaps today, your clean up results look fantastic. I'm promising myself a similar day next week - must have been the hint of sunshine yesterday that's got us going. I just looked at your post below...Wow what a view you have!! I think well worth the while of rewiring for your laptop.
My daughter got one of those wireless modems for her laptop, not sure if it's the modem or her laptop but it seems very slow?

Wow!
I wish my kitchen was as nice as yours!
It`s so bright and big!
You have done wonders rearranging it...
When your hubby will get home, he probably won`t recognize it or he will be like mine, he won`t even notice all the effort that you put in. LOL.

Thanks for stopping by, I enjoyed reading your comment!
