This is a phrase I just stole from lifeingrace.com she is doing a great series on hospitality. This has been a very extensive series and she explores hospitality in many more ways than I could
have imagined but I am loving what she has to say. I have recently been part of a group of ladies providing evening meals for a family going through a really tough time. It has been a complete privileged to be part of it and I have loved the connection and simple reward of feeding people who need it. This phrase "bake with others in mind" is something I would like to have hanging on my kitchen wall because it sums up perfectly how I feel about food. Next time you bake, make an extra batch for a friend.....

i bought this curtain fabric for the last house an i am so glad i didn't use it and waited instead. I also bought this matching oilcloth which really is a perfect match. As i was finishing the curtains, the sun poured into this room all day and it was such a joy, i couldn't have be more grateful. I have ambitious plans for this dresser involving a whole lot of scrubbing and a shed load of paint. I am thinking maybe a taupe colour similar to these curtains. Lets hope the sunshine continues and maybe this dresser won't be too far behind.

So its been a couple of months and I'm starting to itch with the lack of progress around my kitchen. It's yet another lesson in patience for me. .So i have done what i always do, improvise. I had a coffee table hanging around the house and two ikea chopping stations. I was thinking i could raise the height of the coffee table with new legs and put it together with the chopping tables
. I am in real need of some work space and at some point the dining table will come into the kitchen for a really good work space for me and i like the idea of keeping me eyes on the kids when they are crafting. So while we save up for my dream table this may be just the thing.
