Do You Love Parties?

Hello, Dear Ones! Tell me you love to party! I know I do, especially in the Land of Blog. Well, if you haven't heard ~ I'M HAVING A PARTY ~ A Heart of the Home Party - Show Us Your Favorite Cupboard Party! Doesn't that sound like fun?

Here's the cute little button I've made for our party with my own dainty creamy little fingers! I'm so talented like this - and please know me I'm teasing! :) But hey! :)


So many of you joined me last year as we partied and showed our kitchens. It was marvelous and if you missed it you can click HERE and visit the most wonderful kitchens in the Land of Blog.

This time I thought it would be great fun to show a special cupboard in our kitchen. We all have one or two.


Here's a few spots around my kitchen to give you a clue and to get you inspired. Now my kitchen is small but I've got lots of cupboards and poke lots of things inside. Here is a little lazy susan area that's great for deep bowls and small appliances. Love it!


You could even show us your drawers. Um, that doesn't sound right does it? You know what I mean - your kitchen drawers filled with pots and pans or bowls or whatever! You can keep your dainties covered up ~ we don't need to see those! :) My bad!


You could even show a free standing something you use in your kitchen like I have here. My lawyer's bookcase holds my cookbooks and some of my chicks and Roos! You could show us your baker's rack even. Any item that is in your kitchen - even a shelf would work.


This is one of my favorites. This little cupboard holds my tiny little microwave and keeps it out of sight, gives me more counter space but works like a charm! Yes, ma'am! This is another favorite cupboard in my tiny kitchen.


Those two doors you see by my the wall ovens is my tiny little pantry! You could show us your pantry! I love poking in other folks pantries to see how they keep things organized, don't you?


Talk about shelves ~ I love these little window glass shelves above my sink. You could show shelves in your kitchen with stuff poked all over them! I love shelves and have some more that are way up high on the wall in the breakfast room. You can include cupboards or free standing cabinets or shelves in your breakfast room. Breakfast rooms are part of your kitchen too.


Speaking of breakfast rooms ~ I have this wonderful little desk area with drawers and little cabinets above the desk area to poke full of stuff. I've poked so much stuff in those little cabinets that I actually covered the chicken wired doors with some gathered fabric so you couldn't see all of my junk, um, I mean stuff! This is a very favorite spot of mine too.


China cabinets! How could we forget our china cabinets? This one is in my breakfast room so it counts as the kitchen. This is one of my favorite toys in my entire house. I redo this so much and have so much fun with it!

Well, Dear Ones, I just wanted to share with you some of the areas you could include in the party! I do so hope you'll come! So get to spiffying up your favorite cupboards in your kitchen that you'd love to show us and plan on coming to my party! If you'd like you can take my little button below and put it on your blog. I do hope you'll mark your calendars and come! I'll have goodies for you!



So there you have it ~ Tuesday, April 5th right here at Note Songs we'll have another Heart of the Home Party - Show Us Your Favorite Cupboard Party. Can I count you in?

I'm joining Our Dear Cielo at The House in the Roses for Show Off Your Cottage Monday,
Our Dear Carrie at Dittle Dattle for Amaze Me Monday.
Our Dear Robin at All Things Heart and Home for All Things Inspired Wednesday.

Be a bunch of Sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

Shake, Rattle and Roll

Get out from that kitchen
and rattle those pots and pans,
Get out from that kitchen
and rattle those pots and pans.
Well, roll my breakfast,
'cause I'm a hungry man.

I said Shake rattle and roll,
I said Shake rattle and roll,
I said Shake rattle and roll,
I said Shake rattle and roll;
Well you never do nothin'
to save your doggone soul.

Wearin' those dresses,
your hair done up so right
Wearin' those dresses,
your hair done up so right;
You look so warm,
but your heart is cold as ice.

I said Shake rattle and roll,
I said Shake rattle and roll,
I said Shake rattle and roll,
I said Shake rattle and roll,
Well you never do nothin'
to save your doggone soul.

I'm like a one-eyed cat,
peepin' in a sea-food store,
I'm like a one-eyed cat,
peepin' in a sea-food store;
I can look at you,
till you don't love me no more.

I believe you're doin' me wrong
and now I know,
I believe you're doin' me wrong
and now I know;
The more I work,
the faster my money goes.

I said Shake rattle and roll,
I said Shake rattle and roll,
I said Shake rattle and roll,
I said Shake rattle and roll,

Well you never do nothin'
to save your doggone soul.
Shake rattle and rolllllllllllllllllllll

  2. You have a beautiful kitchen! Mine is a collection of cheap wood but I am working on it!
    Amazingly, though, I have more cabinets than stuff! I'm too lazy to get out a ladder to reach the top five feet of cabinet spavce anyhow!
    Happy Sunday!

  3. I'm 'thinking' about it! My kitchen is still in a slight state of not-quite-finished redo. I could show you my favorite cupboard that doesn't have it's doors on it yet and explain about the beautiful glass doors that will be there one day. Some day!

  15. What fun that was to take a stroll through your kitchen. It is bright and cheery!! I could sit there with a cup of tea and eat scones with ya.
    all your cupboards look so neat and tidy. Mine could use some help in that area.
    and MY kitchen I believe is the teeniest kitchen in the world....WAY to small. Hubby built this house (cabin really) before we hooked up, and didn't take account he may have a wife in his life.
