Puttering around after a busy day...

It was a busy Thursday, but sometimes the busier I am, the more I can do ( ok, lol, just sometimes ). I had clients today and came home and just got in that mood to bake bread! so I did ; ) I'm usually not that crazy, but hey, that feeling doesn't come around every day, so I went with it ;) after dinner, I had my girl friend over for some appys and wine and still I wasn't unwound yet, so I started thinking and obsessing about how I want to turn this corner of my kitchen into a pantry. I want a gorgeous gingerbread door with a screen and I'm thinking I'll paint it Red or Robins Egg Blue. I Haven't figured that out yet , but before I destroy this corner of my kitchen , I figured id snap a few photos since I've never shown it before ;) so at 10pm, I turned into a "putterer" :)....
I picked up this casserole dish at an Italian Fair in NYC a few years back and its so unique...
I really love beautiful crystal, but I have such bad luck with it, its so fragile and this is the last of a set of cordial glasses I got from an Estate sale, they were so gorgeous and now I'm down to only one. Ive since switched to using my everyday stuff , with the exclusion of holidays....if you click on the picture you can see all the detail that went into it, it's so pretty in person...
I got this little sign at Michael's Craft store, $1.00 and so cute :) and it wont break :)
My little bowl, a mini yellow ware...
and after a long day there's nothing like a slice of home made bread ... want some?? ;)
Thanks so much, as always, for all your sweet comments, I hope you all have a fabulous weekend! ~ Hugs ~ Cynthia

Hi Cynthia,

I love your little pantry. Your place is so adorable. The bread looks yummy. I tried making bread once in my life and after I dropped it on the floor and it broke the tile, I gave up.

I love that cute cabinet and everything you have in it! I am like you - love to putter around my house. And I usually do it late at night. That bread looks so delicious. I am a carbaholic and love to eat bread with some butter on it. YUM!

Hi Cynthia,
Gosh, homemade bread sounds sooooo good. I wish I could make bread. I always get the ready-made kind, let it rise, and bake it.:) Your kitchen looks so charming and comfy. Thank you for sharing photos. Just love your style of decorating! Amy

Tea Time With Melody said...

I love your idea for a pantry. Wish I had one myself. Sorry about your crystal, but the nice thing about crystal is you can mix and match so don't give up, just pick a favorite here and there. Kind of like a table of different tea cups :)

MARGARITA BLOOM said...

Awww, thanks so much for your warm comments Cyn!! They mean a lot to me. :) I'm very happy yo give you that award! You're an amazing designer...I love your style girl! I just adore that porcelain pitcher!

You should totally try our new IT Girl Buttercreme....it's a different formula than the last ones you purchased. Not thick, but very creamy & dreamy and made with organic goodness!! And the scent is to die for!!! Everyone loves it....cranberries & raspberries all dipped in pink champagne...delightful!
