Kitchen...a work in progress


A while back, a loyal reader asked me to post additional pictures of my kitchen. I was flattered (extremely), but since it's usually a mess with dishes piled every which way, I haven't had the opportunity. We don't have a dish washer, nor do we have a garbage disposal. Very green we are. {Note: This is sarcastic. Anyone who knows me would, unfortunately, laugh at that. I try. I do. I'm just VERY late to the game, and I'm catching up!} It's usually spotless when we have guests coming though, and I managed to snap a few shots recently with my husband's camera. Ta da! A work in progress...




Believe it or not, this tiny little kitchen sold us on the house. Actually, it was the checkered floors, to be exact. They go PERFECTLY with all of my red accents ... uhm, he he, actually the kitchen aid mixer.


The door to the basement is painted with chalk paint ... perfect for writing the nightly menu! The X's and O's are from pottery barn.

Dishwashers actually use less water than hand washing your dishes does, and they're much greener, as well. You can read up on it over at Apartment Therapy.

Uhm, well, I sometimes forget that my sarcasm doesn't come across on this blog. Though I have the best intentions, I am NOT a very good green person. I'm also a dumb as* who didn't know that dishwashers were better for the environment, but my smarty pants husband knew. Doh. Pathetically, the reasons we don't have a dishwasher and garbarge disposal are space and lazk of time/money/initiative. Pathetic, right?
