Earth laughs in flowers... Ralph Waldo Emerson

A man can no more diminish God's glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word, 'darkness' on the walls of his cell.

I guess the title says it all! I can’t believe I am showing my pantry on my blog! It is my daughter’s fault! I was cleaning out the remaining Christmas goodies the other day and she asked me if I had shown ya’ll my little pantry makeover. I moved some things around and changed out the paper just before the holidays. Not a huge change just a little pick me up…I wanted it to be a little cuter;)! Sooooooo…here it is! I took the pics while it was nice and empty…so much easier to see the darling paper I used…I love it! I used a different pattern on every shelf…so whimsical. I would have loved to paint the whole thing another color…maybe some day…this was just supposed to be a little pick me up…remember?

I am off to the market!!! I need to get some food to put in there before my family starves to death;)!

Have a wonderful evening!

Lots of Love!!!

I don't know if my pantry would ever be blog worthy! But your's is great! I like all your whimsical papers!
If your family is like mine, if we're out of cereal...we have no food!

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Cathy, yours looks a lot better than mine. My shelves are so stuffed there is no more room for anything else and lot of it is so old it isn't edible any more. I have got to clean it out! I love your cute aprons.

I'm glad your daughter suggested you show us!
I'll be right over, tie on one of those darling aprons and get to bakin'!!
What shall I make?

Sue said...

Hi Cathy,
Your pantry is a.d.o.r.a.b.l.e. Love all of your orange pops of color, and your serving pieces aren't just all jumbled together ~ they are arranged! Mine is a mess of Christmas and junk and piles of bowls and other junk. You have inspired me.
Thank you also for your sweet comment. Love visiting here.
Hope you had success at the market!

abby jenkins said...

How charming! We are in the process of renovating the kitchen here at our 1800s hunting lodge and I wish there was more room for a butler's pantry...begin a prop stylist for food shows I have a bijillion plates, platters, etc.. and love to have everything out where I can see it, instead of in the loft in the barn. You have some nice props there too! Happy to have found your blog, can't wait to check it out.

Pamela said...
