Happy Spring!

Teapot with chalkboard markerMy friend “T” gave me the little adorable chalkboard sign in a cute burlap wrapped potted plant. I should have snapped that photo; it was cuter but I stuck the sign in this old teapot on my patio. Need to stick some bloomin buds in there.

My Corner Hutch Details

Corner Hutch decorated for SpringI was telling a friend just a month ago that I had very little to blog about during the winter months. Now, all of a sudden I have tons of pictures and projects and I’m trying to get motivated to blog…

I’m sharing my photoshoot from a few weeks ago of my kitchen and dining room. I spruced it up and styled it. 

mason drinking jarsI’m hoping this little setup will inspire me to serve cold iced tea on the patio which is just a few steps away.

Kitchen Styling

Here on page 1 of Kitchen Styling, I use some of my best photos taken midmorning with the lights on and the sun shining outside. I prop my kitchen with everything I love and go with my gut.

Kitchen Essentials

For page 2, I compare the midmorning photo with the photo taken at dusk (upper right). I also took away quite a few extras on the counters for the dusk shoot. (click on images to see larger image)
