The tumbleweeds were blowing through little ole Mocking Bird last week! I hate seeing the blog sitting without any newness, so to make up for it I’m devoting this week to something fun and inspiring. So much of what I love about living the simple life is having a beautiful, happy place to come home to. I’ve really found such solace in my home in the past few weeks and am working hard at making it a heavenly haven filled with all our happy things.
I’m devoting this week to all things housey, decor and design. We have a giveaway happening tomorrow and lots of inspiring posts for the week.
I’m kicking it off with the bane of my current existence- my teeny rental kitchen. Luckily for me, a clever lady has offered to help me with prettying it up and we are working on that at the moment. Renting is definitely a challenge, especially when your last rental had a brand new kitchen with granite counter tops. Have I mentioned that I hate the counter tops? They are pink…PINK!
Do you have one room in your home that compels you to take to it with a sledge hammer? Thankfully there are no sledge hammers laying about, so in the meanwhile I’m dreaming of kitchens with white cupboards and open shelving, wooden chopping block counter tops, a large wooden island and dozens of drawers to fill with our kitchen gadgets. Here are some of my dream kitchens…

Such beautiful rooms to come home to. I hope to take some elements of these beautiful kitchens and infuse them into my teeny rental. Do you love your kitchen?
p.s. Come back tomorrow for the homey give away!
