My New/Old Buttery and a Finish

Well, since I have crafted most of this week of my vacation I decided I had procrastinated long enough. Since moving my computer desk and buttery shelving into the kitchen I needed to reorganize and clean. I did an overhaul on my "pantry" a skinny little closet in my kitchen with make-do shelves. I threw out food that for who knows why I didn't use and had expired. Seriously, I was a food hoarder. Anyway, I moved things around and for now it fits (until I go grocery shopping again.) lol. Next, I cleaned out my fridge washed it out and threw out stuff in there. It looks like there is nothing left and we are going to starve. I threatened my kids that if they spilled something again they would be cleaning it out not me. This is my least favorite chore as you can tell. I have to ask Steve to move my stove out so I can clean the sides of it later tonight. I feel pretty good about my clean kitchen until I walk into my other rooms. I just keep telling myself I will be decorating for fall soon and not to go moving things around yet. But I don't think I'll be able to wait that long. lol.

So while I was on a roll in my kitchen I finished my buttery shelves....









SOLD I also finished up a project yesterday. This gorgeous table runner... I LOVE how it turned out. The colorful leaves on the black background look amazing. And yes FOR SALE $25.00 includes shipping. 13 in. X 42 in.





I have plenty of things to do as you can imagine. I am still pondering on my Giveaway so I'll let you know soon. Have a great day!

Oh Mary, I just want to come sit and stare at that awesome buttery. It looks great and I love the items you have displayed on it. Love the different color wooden bowls in the wooden box. And I love the table runner too. Great job. You are so talented. You will have to rest when you go back to work. (giggle) Have a great weekend.
