Label it

After unpacking a trillion boxes, I saved a long-awaited project for near the end. Organizing my spices. I get excited by stuff like this. Our kitchen is a little odd in many, many places. The stove is basically in the middle of the room. The tile is horrendous but strangely, I am beginning to like it. The refrigerator is on the back porch. Just run-of-the-mill old house types of things, really.

Back to spices. There is a little shelf in the entrance to the kitchen that called out to me when we saw the house for the first time. I bet the previous owner filled it with random knickknacks (we tend to buy houses from little old ladies) but I thought – built-in spice rack. While in the hospital, I researched spice jars thoroughly. An agonizing process. I had a lot of time on my hands obviously. I decided on these spice jars from amazon and bought 24. I loved, loved the feeling of filling the jars and then dumping the original packaging in the recycle bin. Really, this was a case of one glass jar for another glass jar. But now they all match. Love it. I broke out the label maker (always such a pleasure) and Elizabeth affixed the labels onto the jar for me. I am not so good at uniform attachment. A fun project.

When Telfer has some free time (?) I want him to take good pictures of a few of our rooms and I'll post them. We have had such a great time getting settled into this house. I also want to show you the "charm" of our two bathrooms. Seriously, the upstairs bathroom is something else but we are finding it very functional at this point!
