Beauty In Your Kitchen

People don’t think of their kitchens as being a place of beauty but let’s try to change all of that. I like to keep edible flowers out. They are so colorful. I also put my fruit in arrangements. It takes so little time and it makes such a difference to a mood. I also have some very pretty platters that I love to put out in picture frame holders. Many of them are thrift shop finds that I have purchased for under $2.00.

I have a girlfriend who collects wooden trays and she puts them out with pictures she loves, little arrangements of Rosemary in pottery jugs, pretty napkins in collected napkin rings and just anything she likes on any given day. Do try some of these ideas even in a small kitchen. It can make kitchen time something really fun instead of a chore. Aren’t we always looking for ways to find a smile!

Beauty Comes In Many Different Forms

We see beauty in nature, and we see beauty in people. We see beauty in so many things that surround us. I spend a great deal of time in my kitchen and I love to create different decor from just the stuff I find around. I also make many different types of “kitchen dressing” out of basically the same things. Yes, I really do enjoy being in the kitchen for lots of reasons besides food preparation.
