thank you

for my 31st birthday my sister sara and my mom spoiled me with new kitchenware.

originally my interior designer rock star sister was going to buy me new paint and make me new curtains to say goodbye to the red and say hello to grey blue.

but since we decided to sell our house they decided that kitchenware was the way to go.

i feel so completely spoiled!!

my kitchen utensils/dishes looked like i was in college struggling to get by with everybody elses old kitchen stuff.

it was embarrassing. the mish mash utensils. chipped dishes. barely usable can opener.

they took pity on me and took me shopping.

we shopped at homesense (my most favorite canadian store ever) and superstore (another favorite) they both have great deals and great products!

i am one happy momma!!

the simplicity of nice things that i chose makes me feel so good.

giving the rest to goodwill and de-cluttering my kitchen made me feel so happy and content.

i love nothing more than to de-clutter and simplify these days.

i always feel more capable more patient and most happy when my house is clean tidy and organized.

add some chilled out music and a candle burning and well that equals pure bliss.

check out my new kitchen loot

birthdaypresent

classic white dishes and serving bowls

the second set of white bowls have a lovely damask etched pattern on them...love.

fun blue popcorn bowl and cereal bowls

cute mini bowls for sophia snacks (much like scooby snacks)

a matching set of brushed steel silverware

a really fun green spatula

well you get the picture...i love it all.

i feel like a proper adult now. it's about time.

thank you sara and mom!

(this is where i would put a big puffy heart if i could)

you guys blessed me so much...

love,

your little sister and your youngest daughter

Nice birthday haul on the kitchen goodies!

They are so attractive that I took a second look at mine which, comparitively speaking, look like Sally Ann rejects!

You've encouraged me to shop Laura....I appreciate that!
