We finally got around to a bunch of small updates around the house to improve functionality and/or make things slightly more stylish. 🙂
In the kitchen, I got a hanging basket thing to corral all the fruit that was constantly taking up way too much counter space. Here it is hanging to the left of the sink:
I also got some wire mesh baskets to tidy up the coffee making supplies. This area used to just be a big jumble of fruit and coffee filters and such:
The knob on the pantry door busted, so we took the opportunity to switch from chrome to oil rubbed bronze:
We’re slowly switching over the remaining door knobs in the house, but I’ll spare you a bunch of door glamor shots.
We also finally switched out the chrome-and-rust light fixture for oil-rubbed bronze in the hallway bath:
Back in the kitchen, we re-hung the magnetic knife holder vertically on the side of the refrigerator. Much more functional. And I got these little white containers (to the left of the stove) to hold garlic, but I’m still not sure what I want to do with the onions:
And I made that fun green double oven mitt that’s hanging off of the oven door. It’s mostly just there to look good, but it does actually work… Plus, Dakota likes to steal it and run around giving everyone high fives while wearing it:
So I think it was definitely a worthy sewing project. 🙂
Dakota: 1 year, 6 months
One and a half! Awesome. Her hair is slightly weird in this picture because it was only partly dry after her bath. 🙂

And here‘s last month.
