Sometimes my kitchen table becomes a forgotten workhorse loaded with projects. A pile of mail. Hubby's laptop and notepad. And various things that do not belong on the kitchen table! Before you know it you have a mess and it is only noon!
Does that happen to you?
Well... I looked at my table and thought something has to be done!
My table needed a little love.
Nothing fancy...but something pleasant and simple instead of a mess.
I decided that a simple farmhouse sort of look is just what I needed for this refresh.
My bowl and tulips remained on the table.
Then I simply added some chunky candlesticks and placemats...and I felt better.
It only took a few minutes to put things away...and pull out candles and mats. But it made a huge difference in my kitchen. It's sort of like making the bed in the morning. That simple act makes the room look so much better.
Here are a few pictures...because I like to snap and play with my camera. I love to play with light and angles.

Near focus and far away focus. It's just fun to play. My love of photography is what prompted me to begin my blog, and buy a better camera a few years ago.
I have lots to learn...but I love to practice, practice, practice.
The lesson of this post (for both of us) is when you have a mess on your kitchen table...it only takes a few minutes to wrangle the mess and transform your table into a pretty spot for a cup of tea or coffee. You just have to "do it." ha ha.
Thank you so much for stopping by for a few minutes.
I appreciate your friendship so much!
