Meanwhile in Georgia..., the sun came out and at home

- I spotted this on facebook and laughed out loud.  Yes - after so many days of rain, it was amazing to see some sunshine. 

- My day was spent indoors on Wednesday, but I managed to get to the park near the office just in the nick of time after work.  There were so many runners, walkers, playground kids out - it was like a big celebration of the sun.  I got the tail end of it, but managed to get back to my car just before the sun completely shut down for the day.

- And I was thinking how cheerful this corner of my kitchen looked this morning, so I snapped a photo of it.  I got the aluminum tray at an antique shop in Murphy, North Carolina last summer.  I love its etched vine pattern.  And when I got home with it, I couldn't think where it would go, so I put my hodge podge of sugar dish and cream pitchers on it.  It's always bright in my kitchen.  :)

Happy weekend, my friends!  I hope yours is lovely.

Your kitchen is delightful.
We seem to have largely given up on sun. Mind you, I am LOVING the rain.
Have a wonderful weekend.

Haha! We had a moment of sun like that : )
I love the cheery corner of your kitchen. It looks like an inviting place for a cup of tea.

Ha ha that first picture cracked me up. Yes it's a bit like that in the UK. As soon as it stops raining, even if it's not sunny, I head outside to do something, before the rain sets in again. Plus it's getting so dark so early now, it makes the evenings go on forever. Have a lovely Sunday Lynn.

Love this post. Of course I love all your posts. Glad you had some sunshine. Looks like we will be without for a while. I have a tray like yours and am wondering where it is. Now I shall begin the search because I want a lovely grouping like yours

That is funny. I told my co workers that when I next saw the sun, I was going outside and doing a SUN DANCE!!
One of my customers told me on Thursday, that it had rained for 21 of the past 26 days...really, I replied, I thought it was more than that!! :-)

An aluminum tray is just as pretty as and less trouble than a silver tray. Much as I love silver, I do not love polishing it!

Here's hoping you see more of the sun in the coming week.

Your kitchen is inviting and that tray is tops. Love the decor!

Is that something new
something we never seen
a big ball of light
shining down at me

I took off to the park
to run a mile or two
then that ball of light
got so it I couldn't see

So what more could I do
but go into the house
and set out a try
for all of us to view

Have a great day Friday the 13 2015

I love your cheerful kitchen that some Ruska earthenware I see there? :)

Just passing through for my first time and your still life photograph of your kitchen corner is quite excellent. It looks so much like a painting I actually had to take a more closer second look. I'm a big fan of 'still life' photos myself but just wanted to pass along my compliments.
