Welcome friends...thanks for coming by. We're seeking beauty in all of creation... in our faith and our families; our art and our music; our crafts and kitchens, and even in our own backyard. We'll share a poem or a recipe, a picture or a memory; maybe a dream of how we wish our life could be. And though we acknowledge that the world can be harsh, we're keeping it pleasant in our little corner; endeavoring to keep the words from the Book of all Books: ...Whatsoever things are lovely; think on these things.

I so enjoy hearing from you...so leave me a comment; it'll make my day!

Your Kitchen is a Beautiful Place

The ordinary arts we practice every day at home are of more importance to the soul than their simplicity might suggest.                Thomas More

Your kitchen is  a beautiful place...full of lovely things. You just have to know where to look.
Open the towel drawer and see a delightful composition of  color and pattern and texture. Remember to enjoy them the next time you dry dishes.

Pretty, vintage pictures are hiding behind your cupboards...
why it's almost reason enough to remove the doors altogether!

Your favorite apron hung on the wall becomes a still-life.

 A broom of wood and straw like Grandma used is propped in the corner...functional beauty. 

A thrift-store tumbler and a measuring glass on a contact paper lined shelf...a lovely combination!

A bowl of fruit as a centerpiece, as lovely as any floral arrangement. How thoughtful of God to make our food, not just pleasing to the palate, but pleasing to the eye!

Your kitchen is a beautiful place!

This is such a great post. Makes you stop and think. I think most of us have such great memories of growing up helping out in the kitchen and watching our mothers and grandmothers cook!
