wednesday white kitchen details

It’s cold season and today I have one at home under the weather.  I’m planning to soothe her sniffles with some herbal peach tea and honey in a few minutes.  Since we’re home all day, I’ll spend a good amount of time in the kitchen.  Planning to make dinner ahead of time – the family’s favorite meatloaf recipe with spinach walnut salad and sauteed potatoes.  I have to feed this crew like crazy since they’re all athletes and come home understandably starving.

Here are some lovely white details for your kitchen, starting with this shelf scene.  Ahhh, white, stripes, textures, and galvanized pieces.  Heaven.

In love with this white cheese board from Pizitz.  Perfect for those of us who would love a touch of Carrara in the kitchen.  Would also make a gorgeous wedding or house warming gift.

I’m quite taken with the whole galvanized line at Target.  Starting with this tray.  A million uses for this guy.  Like the scene above, you could place a big white container with wooden spoons in it and lean the Carrara cutting board against the backsplash.  A tiny vase with fresh flowers or greens would complete the picture.

Also digging this substantial galvanized container.  I stare at it on every one of my 27 trips to Target each week.  Perfect storage for those odds and ends that make their way into the kitchen or entry – like wet snow boots for those of you enduring the snow storms up North.  I hear it’s brutal this week.

Oh – if anyone liked the sound of peach tea I mentioned earlier, it’s this one by Yogi.  I picked it up with some fresh honey at the grocery store yesterday before school when my little one needed some comfort for her sore throat.  Brewed it for her right there in my classroom ; )

This tea has a nice flavor and smells divine too.  I had a cup myself while I was teaching ballet and several people came in and asked me what smelled so good!

in the navy

Yesterday kicked my boo-tay.  Not gonna lie.  I’m pretty much running on fumes, but there’s always time to share a few classics that are pretty.  Especially if they include the color navy.

This adorable skirt.  A classic.  And a steal.

Anyone else had a busy start to their week as well?  I might need toothpicks to keep my eyelids open for the remainder of the day.  Tonight’s après dinner agenda includes herbal tea, cozy pajamas, a light read, and bed.

fresh workspace + a freebie

Some desktop organizing inspiration to start your week.  I’m always working on this issue, and I think it’s particularly challenging when you work from home.  I seem to operate in piles.  This workspace via domino is so fresh and mod.  Great idea to use the shelving as a wall or room divider.  You can achieve a similar bookcase look for $139 with this Kallax shelving unit.  We gave ours away a few years ago and now I wish I had it!  


I finally cleaned up my laptop’s “desktop” and feel much better.  It inspired me to change my screensaver page.  I spotted this monogrammed screen and really liked.

I found this quick free customized monogram you can download on your computer (lots of colors and 21 different styles) over here.  So I made my own.  It took like 12 seconds.  Easy.


Also came across another adorable FREE screensaver for any fellow leopard lovers.  It’s designed by the writer of this amazing blog.  The download is here and leopard colors comes in black, blush, gold, poppy/pink, and grey.  I chose the black and grey versions.  Love stylish little freebies like these!




Last but not least, I picked up a 2015 sugar paper calendar for my desk. Even though my calendar these days is 90% digital, I still love writing most everything down in my own desk calendar.  It feels easier to remember and more significant once written down.  Can’t explain why, but I really prefer writing versus typing an event on my phone.  Maybe because it’s more relaxing to sit, plan, and glance at your whole month in your own writing.

I typed this post just before the sun came up, and the birds were singing like crazy.  More so than usual.  I think they know that spring is just around the corner!
