I am many things and so is this blog. A place for inspiration and also a place to see my mistakes. A place to delve into the personal, but also stay back over there and check out my instagram, it's worth a thousand words.
It's pretty much as cluttered as my mind and my mind is, like, last on my list of things I have to clean out. I mean, have you even seen my closet? My cats sleep in there! And I have trouble throwing things away. Unless I want to and then purge like the wind!
A Contradictory confluence of design ideas and thoughts. Because everything changes. Except pi. Pi is always the same. And who doesn't love pie?
My mom told me that she used to have a portable dishwasher with a butcherblock top that she used like an island. I thought it was possible to convert ours. If you squint, you can see the top of our dishwasher has a weird gray formica top. Which we topped with a cutting board. (I would've taken a before picture, but I heard machinery and went to the backyard to discover the top was removed for measuring). I was using it as a prep station before we got our giant cabinet. Maybe now Rachel Ray's recipes will actually take 30 minutes.
We've had this table forever. We found it on the street when we first moved here. Solid oak table. Round. A little too big for our kitchen so we cut it down. When I found a new table at the thrift store, (Heywood-Wakefield, dream come true), I put the top in the garage for future use.
And a coat of food safe oil...
And I get my very own butcher block island. I'm so glad I don't have to pay John. Wait...I made him a chocolate cake. Small price to pay.
