Well, Finally...

as soon as I read this issue of Veggie Times I'll know the answer to Paper or Plastic? Thank Goodness!

and in other news...

my very first etsy purchase came home today...from Simply Me Art
no, this isn't my purchase...this is just the wrappings! I know...when the package is this cute, you know what is inside is just going to be simply grand :) (get it? the play on Simply?...sigh...I know...awful) so wonderful...I do not possess this type of vision of what some tags, ink, a stamp & some Glittery "Bling" as Jamie says can be...I'm always amazed by what creative people come up with :)so I forgot what the second banner said...and opened it with Mr G standin' right there...crud...I was going to tack this up Sunday Morning while fixin' a beautiful Father's Day breakfast for Mr G...

that is such a lie...

I might have tacked this up while Mr G went out for Dunkin' Donuts became I am not a Big Breakfast Eater or Maker...

I'll take a better pix when the banner is up on the wall or something...my back is a little fried from all the Ladder Standing (because I am the Hired Help, that's why) so my patience level is depleted...Mungo especially likes this banner...he is so CUTE when he takes his little hands to hold things while he examines them...the Summer Banner...a gift for SIL#3 and attached nieces and nephew...I hope takin' this banner out becomes a Summer Tradition for them...holding a lot of Summer Memories :)

Jamie also sent me some of her beautiful things last week (as a Totally Not Required Thank You But Boy Am I Happy She Did Gift)...a bracelet that is just beautiful, a handmade card and some Glittered Vintage Little Girl Tags...

I took photos for ya'll to go on this post...they stink...

Oh, Jamie...Mr G, since he was, as previously noted, STANDIN' RIGHT THERE when I opened up the package, said "she made these herself?"...that is quite the compliment :)

Moving along...more kitchen photos...yep...cats on the counter...and dishes dryin' in the sink...I thought about shooing the cats along (ladies, I gave up that fight a long time ago), drying and putting away the dishes...maybe put the rice cooker, coffee maker & carafe into the pantry and put Old Kitty's fan up (he is 19, has thyroid "issues" and thin fur...so he gets hot and he gets a fan...I expect I'll need a fan when I get that old in Human Years, too...I hope some one gets me one...but I decided that I'm Too Lazy, My Back Hurts Too Much and Why Not Let Ya'll Feel Good About Your Kitchens Compared to the Current State of Affairs in Mine :)and yes I have a Serious Problem with tackin' stuff to the fridge...which is why I spent a good bit of time this morning messin' with that awful magnetic paint primer...I'm turning the "fake" wall beside the fridge into a Big Butt Magnetic Board...and I'm thinkin' about doing the same with my pantry doors...

oh, speakin' of Big Butts...please note my loverly blue padded swivel cushion on the stool...

I've in Serious Consideration Stage about painting the shutters black...they are So White compared to the soft white I used on the cabinets...opinions?

I'd take them down but then I would not be able to stand in front of the kitchen window at night with the sink light on...because I find that completely freaky even tho' (because?) there are only woods next to us...just creeps me out thinkin' about it...

Hey! we all have our Little Twitches, right?

the eating area adjacent to the kitchen...I need a Big Ol' Wing Chair for that spot right next to the hutch...actually, I need two...and I'm waffling about those shutters, too...

I like your kitchen! We have stuff all over our fridge, too (horrors!), and have to make sure that our chairs are "fanny friendly" before we buy them.

I love your etsy goodies. I am so in awe of creative people!

xo,

Mrs.G, Well first off, A Huge Thank you for the Very Kind words of myself and my Work. I had No idea this was your first Etsy Purchase? I feel so honored that you chose my store. Thank you Very much. Thank Mr.G. for the Kind words also! It is so nice when Men notice detail. Secondly, your kitchen cabinets look Beautiful. I must say I really Love the Black on the bottom and the white on top. And seeing kitty hanging around really reminds me of my house. Enjoy everything.Jamie

I like your kitchen and the "stuff" on the fridge. Where would we be if we couldn't post "stuff" on the fridge! Well....J and I would be lost, that is for certain!

Hi Mrs.G, I love your new treasures, Jamie is a very creative person...I just love her creations. I think black would look great for those shutters, but then I love black furnishings anyway. Whatcha waiting for???...go open that hooked rug kit!...and dont forget to take pictures of your progress. :)

Cute, cute things from Jamie. I'm afraid I'm not that creative when it comes to things like that either. Enjoy!

Very cute stuff from Jamie. I just got a package from her too LOL! I think black for the shutters would look great. I don't know anyone that doesn't have stuff on their fridge!

My fridge keeps us organised. Notes from school, invitations, events, bills- they are all there. Sometimes I take it all off to clean and it looks so clean and spare but seriously is totally unworkable. If it is out of sight then it is easily out of mind so I need it all where i can see it.
Our cat was a bench hog too.

Just wanted to let you know my "begonias" are double impatiens! LOL (((hugs)))

Your kitchen looks wonderful..great job! For the "stuff" on our fridge, I placed a piece of punched tin in a frame and attached it on the fridge door...you can't see the frame for all of the "stuff" but at least all the "stuff" stays in the middle of the fridge door. lol Black shutters would be nice!

it's all about the journey...
