I am one of those people who often gets an itch for a change of scenery around my house. This used to annoy Josh, but now he often welcomes and participates in the changes. Consistency will wear a person down I tell ya.
Well, this time my kitchen got it.
Almost six months ago I pinned this image with the words, If I could clear some counter space, I could do this.
Fast forward to a few weeks ago when I saw this image and also saw my answer.
Getting my knife block off my counter, would definitely clear some counter space.
So, I marched down to target with my Christmas gift card in hand and got myself a magnetic knife strip.
So that I could do this.
The only thing I needed was to find a tray for corralling it all.
When all else failed, I shopped within in my own shop.
Perfect seafoam green tray find.
And a bonus - I found a vintage coffee can that had been forgotten about.
Clearly my kitchen utensils are not as easily color coordinated as Martha's.
I was excited to be able to corral some of my everyday use items out on the counter.
EVOO in vintage jar
Toothpicks in apple container
Salt and Pepper pinches
I added my ceramic farmer's market basket from the swap to the scale.
Always gotta have clementines when they're in season.
This little switch up also helped clear a perfect spot for my iHome, because cooking without music just isn't cooking.
I saw this fun play on words on pinterest (where else?) and thought it was thoroughly appropriate for above my music in the kitchen. So I made a little sign for myself.
Let us turn up the beat.
Yes, lettuce. :)
I know I'm not the only one who loves a good change of scenery - so what have you been up to?
