These were the new to me blogs that dear readers suggested. If you'd like to read why, check comments in yesterday's post. The new blogs are on the left and the old blogger who suggested it is on the right. Something's wrong with that sentence.
Jill suggested *one,* too, but that kind of blog is reserved for those with a certain panache. I have zero panache. Betty suggested her own blog, which I thought was very spunky of her! Thanks, Betty! ☺ Others suggested wonderful blogs that are already on my list. Great minds and all that.
Yesterday's post resonated with most of us since we have all lost favorite bloggers. I still hold out hope that they'll be back. After writing the post, I visited Deborah at The Beautiful Matters where she was discussing the successful ways that people age. One of them was the ability to gather "new" people after loss. I don't really want to gather "new" people, but the fact is that you were new to me once and I'm so glad that I gathered you.
It is interesting how little changes can affect mood positively. I made a little change in the corner by my stove. I know. We're talking simple here. This is a photo from 2009 when the former microwave lived there. Not a happy arrangement at all...such a tight corner you see.
You know, looking at this again, I think my antique stove top may require moving and it's providing some lovely extra storage, too. John will kill me. Maybe I can keep it for the function of it.
So, where was I? Oh yes, there've been some changes...the vintage white enamel kitchen table is now in my sewing room. The jelly cupboard was painted red.
Those streaks on the walls are why I want to whitewash them. We'll see. I don't move too fast over here.
~do not look at dirty grills~
Impressive, say what? ☺ The angled platter turns the perspective back into the room rather than ending it. Right? Don't you think so? Simple changes.
Well I had to have someplace to stash the cookbooks. Don't look at that either. ☺
Nope. I've got to keep it. I have no place for tea pots, candles or vases. Besides, I do love those sheaves of wheat.
Thank you for reading. Hope that you'll visit a new blog or two!
