Yesterday after pondering over it for a while I decided I had to go back and wanted a new tea kettle and a new container to hold all of my cooking utensils . This is the before .
I have had the green Le Crueset tea kettle forever as well as the utensil container . I didn't really NEED to replace them but was ready for a change . I have also for many years admired the Mackenzie Childs "stuff" .
Here's what I bought . My new floral tea kettle and holding all my cooking utensils a hand painted flower pot which is perfect since I keep so many cooking tools for quick reach . I didn't want them matching but coordinating .
The colors work perfectly in my kitchen and I swear it makes better tea . I just love the crystal knob on top of the lid especially since I use crystal knobs on most of the cabinet doors in my kitchen . I am particularly fond of floral's as well .
The flower pot , not necessarily to be used as a utensil holder but it works for me . I can have loads of utensils in this container .
After sharing my minor kitchen changes I felt this over whelming need to also share some new photos of my grand daughter . This past week I kept one of my grand daughters while my daughter had to go to the Dr . She is expecting in September and this will be our seventh grand child . I took advantage of the opportunity to get some photos of my little grand daughter .
She was wearing her new dress that I had just bought her .
I keep lots and lots of toys at my house for the grand's but her favorite is this doll and the doll must have a stroller , which she does . She strolls this baby doll all over the house and as you can imagine we are talking up the soon to be arrival of a new brother or sister , they want to be surprised .Between Naps on the Porch .
