I have been busy making my style Raggedy Ann dolls but on Thursday I took a break from sewing and went to Home Goods, I love that store! I wanted a small table to use as an island in my kitchen. I had used a little antique red farm table in there before, but it was too low and after I had the kitchen redone last spring I moved the table into the dining room. I liked the look of a big open kitchen, but since the kitchen table is not near the cooking area I needed an extra spot to put thing down while preparing dinner. My kitchen is a very large space which is very nice to have.
We do live in the house and the kitchen is used daily, even though I hate to cook! I still have a son at home and my daughter, they both use the kitchen; I like it to look nice, but it does have to function. I found this table which is supposed to be a potting table for gardening, I loved the look and of course the price was right! I painted it white and placed it in the kitchen. The top is tin so it will be durable and it goes with what I already have in the kitchen. It took me a day or two to really decide if I liked it and now I love it!
Now, if I could go to a real Island and just sit and look at the ocean, but for now I am happy sitting at the kitchen table and looking at my island!
Now, I hope I do not use it as a spot to "decorate", it will defeat my purpose. Yesterday I cut some forsythia to bring inside, a bit of spring. . .I love how they look in the old glass jar and I love how they look on my island! I also brought in some daffodils today to put on the kitchen counter.
Wishing everyone a special weekend and warm Island breezes.
