Savannah Is Walking

Stan and I went to visit our nephew Luke, his wife, Hannah, and their little girl, Savannah, last night. We brought in dinner from The Clock. Savannah started walking about 2 weeks ago and I've been dying to get over there to get photos of her walking. We had such a good time visiting with them.

(Luke gutted and is remodeling his master bathroom which is what the stack of stuff is in his living room. He's doubled the size of the bathroom and it will have a whirlpool tub, large shower, vanity and commode. The box is the new vanity.)

She made it to her little leather recliner!

Here are the digital scrapbook pages I did of Savannah learning to walk.

Starting Spring Cleaning In The Kitchen

It's been a mild winter so far here in SC. It made me want to start my Spring Cleaning. This week I worked in the kitchen. I emptied out all my cabinets and drawers, wiped them clean. Then I re-organized and cleaned before putting things back. I used a glossy, wipe-able plastic shelf paper (I used white flat head tacks to hold it in place) when we moved in 6 yrs ago so it's easy to wipe out. So far I haven't had to re-paper the cabinets or drawers.

This used to be my spice cabinet but we have run out of space for all the herbs and spices that we use. So I have relegated my coffee mugs and travel cups to this cabinet.

My knife drawer.

My baking drawer is just across from my baking appliance cabinet.

Our baking cabinet and appliance garage.

Under the stove (it's a down draft Jenn Air).

Our pantry cabinets

With a close up of the area for our herbs and spices (3 rows, alphabetized).

Notice I've used recycled jars and Walmart's Great Value plastic drink containers. We love their instant tea with lemon, or peach, or raspberry! I used pimento jars and Mount Olive 8 oz sweet relish jars. The Mt Olive relish jars were the hardest to use as I had to get the labels off but with a little Goo Gone I managed. Then I used white gloss Appliance spray paint to paint the lids. I love my Dymo label printer.

My tin foil, wax paper, baggies drawers. Notice the jar of matches. I glued a piece of sand paper under the lid for striking.

The insides of my cabinets are clean, organized and finished. The next project in the kitchen is washing down the outside of the kitchen cabinets with Murphy's Oil Soap and water. Then it will be on to the walls and all the doo dads on the walls, the windows and curtains and clean the upholstered chairs. It took me 2 days to do the inside of the cabinets. It will take 2 days to do the other things in the kitchen. I'll probably get around to that some time next week. I have to take it slowly for me. I've already done the Great Room, Guest Room and bath, my bedroom and bathroom and their closets. After the kitchen it will go one to Stan's bedroom and bath. Then the hallways and entrance hall. Then the living room. Then the dining room. Then the office. It will take me all Spring to slowly get this done. The last thing on the list are the outside areas like washing the windows, cleaning the porch and outdoor furniture and spray washing. That's when Stan has to take over.

Savannah's Time Out Chair

Our grandniece, Savannah, has a little Time Out chair. She's too little to know what one is yet but she has one! I had to do this digital scrapbook page of her in her Time Out chair!

Brett's First Snowman

My sister, Elaine, sent her daughter and grandson some snowman props like the little hat, corncob pipe and plastic eyes. Jenny and Kyle get a lot of snow where they live. This is Brett's first snowman. He's 3 years old. This is my digital scrapbook page of Brett's first snowman.

Brett Is Enjoying Pre-School

Our grandnephew, Brett, started pre-school this January when he turned 3 yrs old. His mother, Jenny, told me today that he loves going to school. Here is the digital scrapbook page I made of him in his new classroom.

Decorating With Mirrors

I found some great ideas for using mirrors in your home. Decorating with mirrors brings light and reflection into a room. I did a Google search on how to use mirrors to decorate. Here are some of the results I found.
