When I started this blog back in January, 2011, I had a fancy camera, but I didn't know how to use it.
Fast forward to July, 2012, I still have that fancy camera and I still don't know how to use it,
but I starting to figure it out, SLOWLY!
For the next several weeks, I will attempt to post a "Take Two" on a room in our home.
"Take Two" obviously means "Second Take" not two photos. You guys got that, right?
Of course, you did, just wanted to be crystal clear.
I will also update our Home Tour with these pictures.
I decided to start "Take Two" in the kitchen.
I was able to practice my barely improved photography skills yesterday.
I still have a lot to learn, but I did manage to get some decent shots of the space.
Since this is the most used room in our home,
it is hard for me to shoo everyone out and clean it up enough to take pictures.
The stars aligned for me yesterday
and my kids may or may not have watched a bit too much TV during my little photo session.
This island gets used and abused and I am so glad
I went with a dark stain rather than the white cabinet color here.
I picked up these cute glass jars at the thrift store a couple of weeks ago for $1 each.
The daisies came from my front yard. They make me happy!
The Sonoma Bookshelf from Ballard Design with some more clippings from the yard.
A little peek into the dining area and the family room.
The 8 foot long bench I purchased from Scott's Antique Market in Columbus.
The countertops are granite and the color is delicatus white.
This hard working room really is the heart of our home.
Many good times have been shared with family and friends gathered around this island.
I look forward to many more!
Is your kitchen the heart of your home?
