Good morning! And I would love to have this kitchen! Sadly, I don’t.
But what I do have in my little downsized space is a lot of fun switching up my stuff and making them seem new again.
In my Hump Day Potpourri last week, I shared how I make cleaning fun. Seriously! lol
As an epilogue to this piece, I found a home for the table that had been in the bedroom, but which temporarily took up residence in the garage.
It just took a little while and a new look at my space.
Here it is (above) standing in for a drop leaf table that now is at home in the bedroom.
The book sitting atop the table has a cover my eldest son created. Here’s a picture of him from 1994, holding it.
That was our first Christmas in the foothill house. Shortly afterwards, Craig returned to Europe for a spell. First Ireland, then home again to Sacramento; next, in 1997, he went to Prague where he lived for more than a decade. Now he is Berlin.
All of us here think it’s time he came back for at least a little while.
Memories and photos (and endless furniture switcheroos) carry me along and fill in the empty spaces. What do you enjoy when you’re missing people and places?
