Show us your Kitchen Counter?


Ari 1965 is out hostess this week and here is what she wants us to do...

It's time for show and tell. What does your kitchen counter look like right now? (And no fair cleaning just for the picture!) Do you have any favorite or unusual items on your counter?
Everything I need is right here on my kitchen counter. My favorite, has to be my coffee pot, its old but we love it because its a thermal carafe, it keeps the coffee warm without cooking it and making it so strong. In this photo, I love my little Yankee candle wax melt decoration. It was a house warming gift from my girlfriend. We are a bit of a neat nick, so our counter top looks like this all the time!

Now go over to Beyond my slab and see what the others say.

If my countertop could speak to the appliances it would say, “Here comes that old man again. He makes such a mess spilling coffee grounds on me you think he’s blind. His hands must be allergic to a damp sponge. His wife complains. She’s so neat. But he seems not to hear one word. Sleepy eyed, he staggers down the hall to his office to boot up. I wish I could take a peep in there!”

Beautiful kitchen counter, Janis! I'm also a neatnik and try to keep things looking good. And yay for your thermal carafe - I also hate overcooked coffee. Happy FM to you!

So bright and cheery! I love the white cabinets. Looking forward to seeing it in person (less than 2 weeks!).

Beautiful kitchen... I like a neat kitchen too. I have always wanted a thermal carafe coffeemaker but I have one of those that doesn't have a carafe which is kinda cool too.

I didn't read the FM until late last night, so I didn't have time for pics and all of that. We usually have clean kitchen counters too! I can't function otherwise ;0)

O! Your so neat counters make me cry out in envy.

First, I so appreciate your white on white decorating scheme. Nothing looks beter IF you're disciplined enough to keep it clean and organized. And you really like the thermal coffee caraffe? I've been thinking about one since I enjoy drinking coffee all day.

Re Slumdog--loved the originality of it and all the young actors were so talented and appealing.

What a beautiful and neat kitchen, I love it!! I absolutely LOVE Yankee Candle, but it's hard to find nowadays in Belgium. I used to sell them in my store.

Tracy said...

I'll have to give it my white glove test when I get down. LOL! Sound familiar?

ChrisB said...

I would so love to have kitchen counters this neat and tidy. It is much easier to work when surfaces are uncluttered.

Jan said...

Wow, you are a neat-nick. I think I'm jealous; I'm a messy-organized.

LadyStyx said...

Such a neat kitchen. My counters are all cluttered because there isnt enoug room for everything on them.

Sayre said...

Now that's lovely... light and airy without being overly bright or white. I love it!

BS said...

I am somewhat of a neat freak too - I have a lot of decorative stuff on the counters but they must be neat too - I am always putting things in just the right space !

Alison said...
