Consumer Reports Kitchen feature

I was so excited to finally find a copy of the October issue of Consumer Reports Kitchen Planning and Buying Guide! Why, you ask?

They contacted me earlier this summer wanting to buy a photo of the hanging rack I made to hold my cutting boards, so I, of course, said yes and patiently waited for the issue to come out. We could not find it here, so Luis picked up a copy at Barnes and Noble in Asheville where they were just putting them out on the shelves. 

This is a wonderful magazine packed full of gorgeous kitchen ideas, so I am humbled to have a little photo in such a beautiful magazine. If you are planning a new kitchen, updating your current kitchen or just looking for solutions for storage, etc., it's a great one to pick up.  I'm going to enjoy looking through my copy and doing a little kitchen dreaming:-)

Noritake "Condoro" and an exotic summer tablescape

As I promised last week, I decided to play around with the dishes and set some pretty tables, because I had seriously been neglecting that part of my blog.

Blue Willow summer tablescape

When I started blogging five years ago, I focused on tablescapes, and since some of those old posts are pinned and repinned by the thousands, it dawned on me it just might be a good idea to focus on pretty tables again:-)

Pretty white sheets

If there is one thing I *must have* in white,  it's pretty bed linens. You can imagine I was really excited after being contacted by Perfect Linens to try a set of their linens.
