Tweet, tweet...

No, I will not be found Twittering!  I can hardly keep up with emails!! 

I wanted to share the new whimsical addition to our kitchen, along with another new love.  After reading Ashli's post, here, I loved the idea of adding a bit of whimsy to each room in our home.  I came across these while shopping at West Elm last week, and thought they would be perfect in our kitchen.  You see, I use olive oil almost daily, and love a good Balsamic vinegar!


Bird Drizzlers, PO Collection, West Elm


I also love this little owl sugar dispenser too.
My other new love is the addition of our 3-tiered lazy susan in our corner cabinet.  About a month ago, I had our cabinet maker out to the house.  We wanted to change a few things in our kitchen, and add chunky frames to our bathroom mirrors upstairs (hope to post about those soon).  I mentioned to him that I'd like for him to make some new shelves for our corner cabinet.  You see, when we moved in 20 years ago, that cabinet had no shelving whatsoever!  So, a couple year later hubby added some, but they never matched our others with the nicely round edges.  My cabinet maker  said to me, "dear, that was made for a lazy susan".  Well then, why didn't Susan move in with us when we bought the house?!!  He laughed, said, "would have cost you extra!" Typical of builders.  So, we ordered one and sweet hubby installed it (wasn't as easy as it looks).  We chose a 3-tiered version that allows each level to spin independently.  I love it!  We use lots of cups/water bottles/etc in our home as we are all about not buying bottles, coffee out (now that we have our awesome new Keurig), etc.  And, if you are looking for an awesome water bottle, Camelbak's products are awesome!! 

Meet Susan...
I had hoped to share more photos of our family room redo, but one...a few things haven't arrived yet, and two...I have a sick child at home for 2 days.  The doctors are switching her migraine meds AGAIN, and it's been a roller coaster of good and bad days. 

Hope everyone else is enjoying the Spring sunshine, it is a beautiful day here!!

Hi Lauren!

Love the bird drizzlers. How cute are those! I like each room to have a little whimsy too. It gives you a reason to smile :)

Looking forward to seeing what you've been up to in the family room.

Pray your daughter feels better and the doctors can find a solution. Migraines are no laughing matter. I used to get them too.

Happy Spring my friend!

I was just at West Elm tonight and didn't see those cute birdies! I did come home with a white ceramic owl!

I hope your daughter gets to feeling better.

West Elm has some really cute things lately! I'm sorry to hear about your daughter- I know it can't be easy on your or her. Lifting y'all up in prayer.

OH, I so need to outfit some of our cabinets with smart things like that. I have been thinking about you and your sweet daughter. Praying the transition time is short and that she feels better very soon. Hang in there.

Love your new finds at West Elm! I hope your daughter feels better soon. I suffer from migraines myself so I sympathize with her.

That owl dispenser is too cute for words! I am an owl freak!

I just pinned the picture of your corner cabinet. I have one that has unusable shelves in it so this would be great! Where did you order it? I'm sorry to hear about your daughter. My best friend suffers from migraines and they stink! Hope the meds work fast.
