Kitchen Open Shelves and More

Wow, you'd think I was on vacation or something! No, just occupied with a wide variety of things. Potential posts go in and out of my head, topics, images, and then time goes by. But, before any MORE time goes by, I want to do some show and tell. I hope you're all enjoying the summer. Please say hi! And, yes, I'm still watching le Tour every day! Everyone is skinny over there, they all need to eat a little something.

 THIS image propelled me into action right now. Come on, how absolutely "feel good" is this image? I found it at the kitchn, always good for wonderfully random good stuff. Really, the kitchn is so much more than recipes, it's very well rounded. Come to think of it, I've been meaning to add some food related info to the blog, after all, without food, what's a kitchen??

And, THESE IMAGES by Habitually Chic, are really fantastic. Showing open shelving in a kitchen, I love how it has caused such a great discussion. It seems one either loves them or could NEVER live with them. I've done posts on open shelves and have lived with open shelves. I love them, they work for me!

I LOVE these open shelf kitchens. I've been trying very hard to incorporate open shelves into my kitchen, but am having a hard time. Most people I encounter are definitely down on them due to dirt and maintenance issues. Hopefully I will be able to work these into my layout somewhere!

If you can be flexible about it and "try it" and have a Plan B if it doesn't work out, you'll be in good shape. It's best to think in a flexible way, that way you have options and the decision doesn't seem like "do or die." Other than that, again, I LOVE my open shelves, but, obviously, as we see here, it's a topic that brings fairly strong opinions....like light floors!!
