The weather has definitely turned here in the foothills of the Eagle Cap Wilderness. Temps are in the 60s and I can swing my doors wide open in the afternoon. I've always loved spring cleaning. It feels so good to sweep off the grime of winter and recalibrate.
This weekend I took an overnight trip with my Mama to Pickin' Boise, a vintage sale and fair, in search of a few key pieces for my home. One of them was an island for my kitchen. My home was built in 1925 and the kitchen cabinetry is original. I was thrilled to find a dark grey work table that matched the feel and age of my kitchen. It would be so weird to put a new table in the middle of this sweet old kitchen. This piece used to be a display table in the Ralph David menswear store on 8th Street in Boise, so it has a little local history. So yesterday, I cleaned the kitchen and made a space for my new table!
This week, I'll be building a little raised bed in my back yard - just a sweet, small kitchen garden for my greens, herbs, and onions. Right now, these green babies are like ladies in waiting. They need to be transplanted soon. But until then, my light-filled mudroom is the perfect place for them to hang out!
