Holy toast!

holy toastThis loaf had two holes shot straight through from start to finish. No good for sandwiches, but fabulous for toast! It also inspired a bit of fun for this week’s weekword, glimpse.

While I am in the kitchen enjoying toast with butter and honey, let me give you a glimpse of what is in my cupboards.

Packing up the kitchen will be the most difficult part of moving for me. Not just physically (so much breakable stuff!), but emotionally. We cook and bake a lot in this family. The kitchen is where most of our good memories are made.

For quite a while we enjoyed the “wallpaper archeology project”.  A few years ago I removed some cabinets and discovered layers of vintage wallpaper and paint that, to my eye, were gorgeous. Of course, when it was time to put the house on the market, the wall had to be “fixed” (harumph). But it was a fun glimpse into the past while it lasted!

We are going to have to search high and low for a kitchen in Kingston that can live up to our memories of this one.

Alright, that’s enough kitchen affection for one day, it’s back to packing for me! Head over to Heather’s lovely blog to get a glimpse of what others have posted!

    Thanks for preserving the kitchen for posterity.

  2. Love the Holy Toast and how lovely to glimpse inside of your kitchen Peggy. I once found some 50’s bathroom wall paper, about 5 layers down, of divers in the deep. Your examples are wonderful and great that you documented them. Looking forward to a glimpse of your new kitchen once you’ve settled in.

  3. Wallpaper archaology should be a recognised specialty ;)

  4. I love the wallpaper archaeology, such a shame you had to ‘fix’ it. Bu maybe the future owners will rediscover it at some point in the future.

  5. Thanks all! I love the idea of someone rediscovering the lost wallpaper! Future archeologists take note; a dissertation on the subject is definitely in order.

  6. You won’t be surprised to know that I covet that rooster egg plate just beneath your hanging mugs ;-)

    I’m certain you will make a new & wonderful kitchen wherever you go — one that satisfies the whole you, body & spirit!

    1. Ha, yes I bet you do! Thanks, HM :)
