Just Fiddling Around!

Just trying to get finished around here with the fall decorating, it really is fall here in Pa.this is what I woke up to this morning…fog and cobwebs…yuck! Thankfully we are having temps in the low 70’s and sunny, as my great niece is getting married tomorrow so it will be nice for her wedding! Plus I have no idea what I’m going to wear, don’t you just love that feeling?

Yes, it needs trimmed as Mr. K told me while I was taking the picture from inside, my answer was “That’s your job!” I said very sweetly though!


I put some blue glass ball jars in my corner cupboard, don’t know if I like it or not!


I like it when I see it like this but not the whole room, will I ever be done decorating?


I added these and I say these because I have know idea what they are.LOL I got them when I traded with a friend at our annual yardsale this summer, I thought they would look great for fall decorating. I do know the one is a dried gourd because I added that to it but the purple looking ones I have know clue! Do you know? The wood bowl I’ve had for years and found it at the flea market!


I don’t show my kitchen alot because I just am not happy with it, it needs to be white with black counter tops! I know, I know I’ve said it before I guess I just have to get off my butt and do it! It’s such a daunting task though!


I added a silver sugar bowl to the rooster lamp that I found at GW but I think it needs something else to anchor it together, maybe a placemat? Do you think? Any suggestions are welcomed♥

Mr. K likes a lamp on the counter, that way he doesn’t have to turn on the light when he raids the fridge at night!


Well, I have to work till 5:30 today then it’s off to meet my bff for dinner and girls night out, always fun with her♥

I’m still having trouble with the drop down boxes when leaving comments, my comments just disappear so if you notice I haven’t been leaving comments on your blog that’s why, I thought it was fixed yesterday but it appears it isn’t!  Google Chrome is not doing it’s job at least not for me! Anyone find a fix yet?

I’ll be joining these parties, thanks for hosting ladies and if you don’t see me thanking you on your blog you’ll know why…makes me sad!

I love the picture with the fog, Rondell...we rarely get any of that here. Perfect for Halloween though! lol!

I think your kitchen looks pretty. Sometimes we have to make it work section by section and your cabinet with the Ball jars looks really cute. I collect them, too. Love that wood bowl, I have been looking for one.

Have a great time tonight!!

I don't think anyone will ever be done decorating! :)

Looks lovely.

Have a blessed weekend.

I love the rooster lamp and it looks like the perfect size for under a cabinet too. I can't believe someone would drop that off at GW. Oh well, lucky you!

I think Blogger ate my comment, so I'll try again: Rondell, you have a great eye for creating vignettes. I love the black, white, and silver in your kitchen. Very pretty!

LOL I don't think anyone will ever be done decorating.
Thats one reason why I haven't shared my bedroom or living room. Those are the rooms I am completely stuck and haven't done anything to.
The jars are so pretty, especially with light hitting them.

Pamela said...

Loveley decor and your fall touches are just right! As for the mystery gourds I have never seen anything like them before. Thanx for coming to the party! Have a fabulous weekend!

Gail said...

Love all your touches of fall and that corner cupboard! For me, I think my kitchen is always a work in progress! I never feel like I'm done in there.

Have a great weekend,

The pic of the fog is awesome Ronell...very peaceful.
I LOVE the blue jars against the white hutch! They look great with the wire basket on top of the cupboard.
Your little vignette on the countertop is very nice...that lamp is just too cute!
I really hated painting my cupboards, but after it was finished it was worth it....white cupboards with black countertops...YES!!!

Hi there! Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today and taking the time to leave a comment. It was such an encouragement to me! I enjoyed the pictures of your kitchen...and especially love those containers with the big black numbers!

Suzanne@Meridian Road said...

I think you convinced me that I need a white cabinet for my blue jars! They look so pretty in yours.

Becca said...

Beautiful pictures! And, your home looks lovely! Your blue jars are wonderful and what a cute rooster lamp ... perfectly paired with your silver sugar holder. And, only because you asked ... yes, I do think that a round placemat (or even a tray) might be a fun addition to your vignette!

I love the blue ball jars and love the cutting boards on your counter. We have had some fog here too...not enough to delay or cancel school though. We love those delays! Have a great week.

I have those canisters, too...I LOVE them! andrea@townandprairie
