An Uncluttered Mind

Is the kitchen the room in which you enjoy spending a lot of time?

Do you eat most of your meals there?

Is it well organized?

I love the look of open shelving, but I’m afraid I need to stow things behind cupboard doors in order to keep my work surfaces clear, and my mind uncluttered.

I once read an article in a magazine about a French woman who set her kitchen standards high… she indicated that every one of her cupboards had to look beautiful, orderly, and clean both inside and out.  I am fairly certain that very few could meet up to her standards, at least if they actually lived life in such a kitchen. 

I seem to have too many kitchen implements for my own good! I like to have something beautiful to look at during the day while I’m working.

My blue Willow China never fails me. And these eggs…  So pale and beautiful.

I am eager to prepare for Easter.  We are going to Kentucky this year for Easter Weekend, so decorating the Cottage for Easter will be very minimal.  Pastel Pinks and Light Blues are spread throughout, however.
