Shady In My Kitchen

Just thought I'd share a few little updates to our kitchen lately (because I can't leave well enough alone). To see previous updates click -here - and - here

We installed some (really inexpensive) natural woven roman shades on the windows. I was so happy to see the white metal mini-blinds go (which I never actually used because they were just so blah). I also added some blue and white plates in the dead space above the cabinets.

I'm pretty happy with the Bixler pendants from Pottery Barn (which seem to be permanently on sale, btw). The french inspired bistro table with carrara marble top was purchased at Juliska flagship store here in Stamford, CT. They use them in their cafe and sell them as well. I can't tell you how much I love this table for it's size and durablity.

I found these sweet topiaries in Maine at Snug Harbor Farm which is a dreeeeeeaaaaaaamy nursery in Kennebunkport. They have their own terra cotta pots with the nursery name on them (clip the photo to a close up). They are so pretty and I love the moss that grows naturally on them over time.

Sorry, this is all I can muster today. I will be back with some more interesting posts soon. I promise! I have so much on my mind and would love to share with you all, if only I had the time and energy to get it out. It's just been one of those weeks!
