This and That in the Kitchen

I got a couple things done in the kitchen last weekend.  One, I've been meaning to do and the other I kind of fell into.

Saturday my Mom and I went shopping at our favorite thrift store, Albertina Kerr (as in Kerr jars).  I found some great jeans, a summer tank, and a t-shirt, all of which cost only $25!  Love thrift store shopping!  We also wandered over to the antique store also on the Kerr property.  There I found this towel/tie/scarf hanger.

I brought it home and painted it with Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint (Linen)

The paint chipped nicely.


I then hung it on my cabinet over the sink.  Now I have a place to hang towels to dry!  

After this little project was complete, I opened the cabinet that holds all our glasses.  That was probably a mistake.

I've long since resigned myself to the fact that we don't have more than two glasses that match.  At one point in my life I had a matching set of glasses but, alas, they broke and over the years and have been replaced with miscellaneous glasses we get when we go to beer festivals.
What with a whole summer of beer festivals staring me in the face, I needed to make room for the inevitable incoming glasses.  Time to purge.
With much debate and input from the whole family (everyone has their favorite glass after all), we finally managed to whittle our collection down to a size that would now fit comfortably in the cupboard.

Now we're ready for the Summer Beer Festivals!  Bring it on!
