Hello! Now that all the Christmas stuff is put away, I thought I'd snap a few pics of my kitchen in its "regular" decor state. You know...before I pull out the Valentine's Day decor. :)
The last time you saw my dough bowl, it was filled with Christmas Ornaments and Ribbon. After the holidays, I just filled it with (real) apples. Ever since we got our Apple Peeler, we've been eating a lot more apples. It literally takes seconds to peel, core, and slice an apple. I now buy granny smith apples in five pound bags. :)
The buffet in the kitchen is back to housing my everyday decor. I tried to fill it up with more white accessories so they would show up against the dark wood.
I love that little wire bird cage I got on clearance at Hob Lob for around $2. I got the green pagoda from the Japanese Tea Garden in San Francisco. Love that city!
I enjoy picking up little decorative items while on vacation like this picture of Antoines restaurant in New Orleans. More on that in a minute...
This wire basket is one of my favorite things to decorate for the holidays, but it's always nice to go back to regular decor for a while.
I'm still enjoying these nesting measuring cups my hubby got for me at Pier 1.
Here's a closer look at the picture we picked up in New Orleans. It actually has a neat story to go with it. It's a piece of roofing slate that was used on one of the old buildings in the Vieux Carre area and dates back to the late 1700's.
Here's what it says on the back of the slate.
The buffet is the perfect place to display plates, etc. because of the grooves in the shelves.
Okay...on to hot sauce. My mom was watching Dr. Oz the other day and he was talking about how good this particular hot sauce is for you, so she bought us a bottle. It really is good, but very hot. :) Sometimes I like to put hot sauce on my popcorn instead of butter and this stuff is great for that!
Here's a close up of the bottle. It's called "Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce." Apparently all the spices in it are fabulous for you. I got mine at my local HEB, but have seen it at lots of other grocery stores. We were watching an episode of The Big Bang Theory last week, and they had a big bottle of this on the coffee table while they were eating! :)
Y'all come back Friday when I'll be showing pics of what our backyard used to look like when our boys were little. It doesn't even look like the same backyard. Let's just say we should have bought stock in Little Tikes toys. ;)
Well, that's all for now. Hope y'all have a wonderful week!
