This just in:
I finally hemmed the curtains I started last November!
(Please forgive me for these bad + dark photos.)
You may very well be asking,
“YAWN, Kay! Curtain hems!? Who cares?” . . .
. . . but we procrastinators know that completing one’s projects is a big deal!
I want to sew a tartan plaid bed skirt (stay tuned!), you see . . .
. . . but I forced myself to finish the curtains first.

Anyway, speaking of completing tasks, our kitchen re-do is back ON!
This has happened:
The cabinet that G.O. had installed beside the range was too narrow + deep,
+ thus, a tad too dysfunctional.
This had me thinking of baskets in cubbies, instead!
Initially, I wanted woven baskets, like these:
However, when my online search for baskets took me to these
from World Market, I was totally smitten!
Only $14.99 for the small? I’m in!
The website sez that these are NEW,
but that they are sold out online + available in stores only.
We had to drive to 2 different World Markets to find our 3,
but it was worth it, in my opinion!
I feared that, in person, they might look cheapie + bad,
but they don’t, + I love them!
Disclaimer: we still need a toe kick here.

Suddenly, the blank wall next to our stove is calling out for open shelving.
Funny how that happens.
I am thinking galvanized metal, + here’s why:
Notice how our new galvanized baskets play so nicely
with the handles of our stove + the Kitchen Aide mixing bowl:
I’m loving the continuity,
so off, I go, on yet another online search, for metal shelving!
Turns out, my 3 finalists are all from Pottery Barn.
I think I will wait to decide,
once our range hood is (finally) installed.
