corners of my home

Finally, I finished my Thankful banner, for which I am thankful to Clarice who posted it for our use. I think it looks beautiful, Clarice, thanks so much!

The banner is hanging from an old cupboard I have hanging in the kitchen, so for today's 'corner' I will give you a peek at what is inside.

~my small collection of mostly old mixing bowls; only the green one is new from Target

~one mixing bowl is full of wine corks I've saved for some reason

~and one bowl holds most of my cookie cutters

~a cow creamer

~some vintage canisters

I almost got rid of the canister set once when I was trying to pare down. They were in a box to be given away or sold on ebay, but I just couldn't do it!

I've been trying to get some things done ahead for the upcoming holidays so I am not feeling overwhelmed right before Christmas. This week I made a couple batches of cookie dough and froze it. There are lots of gifts I would like to make/knit/sew, so I've slowly been working on those also. Organizedchristmas.com has been a great help to pace myself, just in case you're interested!

  4. I really enjoy all the photos of your home. Lots of inspiration as I prepare to move back to my own home in the new year and begin renovations. Your cabinet display is just beautiful. I wouldn't have been able to get rid of those cannisters either :)

  7. I've been meaning to do a similar banner. I'll have to head over to Clarice's, which is always a pleasure anyway.

    Your cabinet looks wonderful and I love the bowls. It's a great idea to store your cookie cutters in one! The shelf looks so gorgeous and I do not blame you one bit for not letting those canisters go. They're really special. I've never seen any like them.

    I'm a Homespun copycat, ya know. I went out last week and bought a mixing bowl similar to the one Mrs. Staggs sent you. I used it to mix up waffles for the boys this week...love it.

  8. I always enjoy seeing the corners of your home! So much so that I think I will add that to my blog as well! I am always amazed at how much I have in common with those whose blogs I enjoy the most ~I also save wine corks...love old mixing bowls ...and keep cookie cutters in one of my old bowls!

    We all must be kindred spirits! I love your yelloware and have my own collection I treasure. Those canisters are keepers--don't even think of getting rid of those:-) I am inspired by your banner and off to make one--thanks for posting these pictures.

  12. Love that banner! It was so nice of Clarice to share the pattern.
    I love old fashioned bowls and your old cuboard is "just right".
    Every now and then I say enough is enough and do some editing of things. It's inevitable that I wish for something back a while later. I'm glad that you kept those canisters.
    Thank you for the link!

  14. Lovely banner and what a beautiful cabinet display, I wouldn't have been able to part with anything either - sometime de-cluttering in't all it's cracked up to be.

  16. Love you cupboard and bowls. I saw a show (can't remember which show) where they made a shadow box type coffee table and filled it with wine corks. It was real interesting!

    I was researching on the web and came to your photos. I am trying to turn a closet into a nice cupboard space for all my mixing bowls, old utensils, etc. Thanks for the ideas that I took from your "bowl" cupboard!! You have inspired me in so many ways. Thanks from upstate NY!
