Favorite Cupboard and Shelves

Hi everyone!
I'm joining Sheila over at "Note Songs" ,  she's having a party
to celebrate of the heart of the home!  Your kitchen!

I've been so busy preparing for it, along with doing a lot of
Spring cleaning around the house that I almost missed it! 

Sheila's party was a great motivator for me...
You see, I have been meaning to clean out and re-organize
my kitchen cupboards for some time now.
I have already been going through other rooms in the house 
because I'm getting ready to have a garage sale.
Now I can also check the kitchen off my list!
First before I get to the kitchen I gotta show you my VERY Favorite cupboard! 
My china cabinet... Some of you may remember this lil beauty I bought from Craiglist.
Every time I look at it, it still makes me smile :D
I also recently added a couple of new piece to it...
including a pretty pitcher that I recently bought at "Ross".

I've also been cleaning out my storage closet and came across this cute basket and urn, and decided they would make a nice napkin and utensil holder.
I was ready for a change from the matching rooster set that was there before...
Now this cabinet probably doesn't look that exciting but it is the most used cabinet in my kitchen.  It contains all my baking necessities and spices too!
I love this little two tiered lazy susan, it's great for easy access to my spices and etc.
I use a lot of packaged seasonings as well so
I keep them organized in this little plastic container. 
Not terribly cute... but functional.
 Maybe I'll find a nifty lil basket or something a bit more cute to use instead.

I also reorganized and redecorated my bookshelf in my kitchen area.
Anyone remember my talking rooster pitchers?! Lol!

Speaking of talking roosters...
My neighbors have recently got a live rooster that has been
driving me crazy with it's constant crowing every morning. 
I'm telling you that darn thing starts crowing at daylight and crows
every 8 to 10 seconds (I counted) nonstop for hours!  Aaack!
Needless to say my love of roosters is beginning to fade a bit...

But they quiet ones are still sooo darn cute! 

I finally removed my set of encyclopedia's from the book shelf, 
and will be adding them to my garage sale. 
 Do you think that anyone even still uses them these days?! 

Anyway, I put this wire basket in it's place. 
And guess what else? 
The oranges aren't the only fruit that's ripe and ready in the backyard... 
Time to get the juicer out again and make lemonade!!

Stop by and join me will sit out on the patio
and soak up some warm wonderful Spring air and sunshine!

See you soon!  I hope...
Have a wonderful week!!
Hugs, Sherri :-)

I would give anything to be able to come over and sip lemonade with you Sherri!!!!
Your kitchen is so warm and lovely. Just like I imagine you to be. I love those darling rooster pitchers! I laughed about your crowing neighbor, becase last year on of my roosters was exactly like that. He never shut up. Sadly though, he died and now I kind of miss the noise.
Thank you for inviting me in today.
sending hugs

Shelia said...

Hi Sherri! Oh, what a gorgeous china cabinet! I love that and the leaded glass doors are beautiful! Love your pretties inside too! Love seeing inside your cupboards - everything in it's place! Your book cabinet is wonderful too! It's so big and has so much storage and look at your Roosters on top! I love those yard birds.
Did I really inspire you to spiff up? Oh, that just thrills me1
Thank you so much, Sherri, for coming to my party.
You are a sweetie,
Shelia ;)
