A Clean Cupboard... Doesn't happen very often.

Just a peak into my kitchen cupboard.
I wiped them down today and they were so sparkly so I thought I better take a picture. With two little ones, clean and organized cupboards don't happen very often.

I just picked up this green wire basket at a garage sale I went to a few weeks ago. I got it home and didn't know what to do with it. I found out it is the perfect height to go under my cabinets for stuff! How exciting... I guess it was worth the $5 I paid for it. My wonderful hubby just bought me a few more pieces of my McKenzie Childs enamel collection for our anniversary. I love my new butter dish, salt and pepper and the covered cake carrier (not shown) Thanks Babe!

I love my courtly check things and would love to start collecting the plates and casseroles.

Well I better get back to my cleaning. Blake and Grandpa went to the Strawberry Farm this morning to pick some strawberries to make our jam. I better get something accomplished while the baby is asleep and the 3yr old is away!

Many Summer Blessings to you all, thanks for stopping by!

Thanks for stopping by my little old blog. You have a beautiful home. I love the back splash tile in your kitchen.

And honey, you just gave me a lightening bolt of an idea. In a previous post you have a picture of a folding table and you said something about it used to be a closet. eureka - I'm gonna turn a closet into a craft room. Thanks a ton for that one.

Hi baby,
You cupboards look so pretty and sparkly clean. Your new pieces that the Mr. got you for your anniversary are great. Love all you cherry and chicken dishes.
Here's a little story about my colorful daughter for her readers. ~ Last year when we hosted a bridal shower for Carrie at Dana's we were setting up the food and we used most every dish in the house plus the ones I brought from here. Finally after searching through all her cupboards for a dish to put the chicken salad in I said 'don't you even have one white dish in this house?' Her answer was 'no, I really wish I would have registered for that china when we got married'.

Hello Sweet Dana!

Wow, have I had a wonderful time visiting your beautiful blog! Just took my time strolling through each post and loving all the pictures! You are one talented gal and I love your taste! Think I need to wallpaper my roomroom! We moved 2 1/2 years ago and I left pretty bathrooms like that one! I need to get out of my slump and make this my home now! Thanks for the inspiration Dana!

PINK golf shoes! What a hoot! I have golf shoes, but not pink! hummmmm...

As I was going through your pictures and seeing your backyard, I thought you might live in Oregon. Bend, OR has some beautiful open yards as yours. Anyhoo, then I read you decorated a home in Michigan. So I think I am wrong! You mentioned you wondered if it was going to be a sunny or stormy day and that's what my daughter deals with in Oregon. I am a CA girl, so it is hard to understand that phause! LOL!

Take care and have a wonderful weekend!


P.S. Dana, you have been blessed with a beautiful family!

The transformation of your basement still amazes me - and it just keeps getting cuter! I'm heading for my laundry area now to cute it up!!! Thanks for the inspiration! Love - Sheryl

I sell a boat-program which will help you to outwit auction and to win, initially the boat was created for the Scandinavian auction but now the program can work with similar auctions: gagen ru, vezetmne ru and with ten.
The program-boat stakes for you, i.e. for this purpose it is not necessary to sit constantly at the monitor. The boat can set time when it is necessary to stake, thus you as much as possible will lower expenses for rates, and as much as possible increase the chances of a victory.

The price of the program a boat for the Scandinavian auctions 20$

For the first 10 clients the price 15$

To all clients free updating and support.
