first off, can I just say this is my one-hundredth post!? who knew I had so much to say? the other day, I was actually thinking about how back in university, it was like pushing a wheelbarrow up an icy mountain getting me to write my essays and reports ( no matter how long ) and now I do it weekly, sometimes daily. it's kind of nuts. looking back, I feel such a sense of pride and accomplishment looking at some posts and a little bit of embarrassment looking at others. I've even cupped my hands over my eyes at a few. sorry for that, you guys, but we all have to start somewhere. years from now, I think it will be so fun to look back and take that mosey down memory lane and know just what I was thinking because let's face it, we try to keep it pretty real most days.
but right now, let's focus on right now, shall we? and right now, I'm focusing on gorgeous open shelves. you know the ones that are popping up all over pinterest right now? yeah, they're pretty much my favorite thing since netflix. they allow small spaces to feel so open and give us all the opportunity to style another aspect of our lives. and I don't know about you, but I love showing off my cookery books. they really are my kitchen's greatest asset ( aside from my beloved kitchenaid, which is safely packed away in storage breaking my heart ). here, have a gander.
peter rabbit bookends. for showing off all of your fancy cookbooks.
mason jar canisters. perfect for utensils.
bright-colored, scandinavian-looking canisters for all of your staples.
what are your favorite open-shelf accessories? I'm all ears. one can never have too many beautiful things showing off on a shelf. okay that's not entirely true. surely, my ocd would kick in eventually!
and so it's hump day! I know, I know. I can scarcely believe it myself. these autumn weeks are flying by all too fast. well, not here in the caribbean, but I feel for you guys, nonetheless ;) I hope your day is one filled with tartan scarves and hot chocolate. enjoy a cup for me.
