i'm in ur kitchen, makin' it look presentable
So for Yule, darkwolfie gave me a gorgeous kitchen cart, which he assembled tonight. I already love it; it's fabulous to have extra room to work. Of course, now I need some little trivets, so I can put hot things down without ruining it.

And I need to spiff up the kitchen a bit, because it's just not working for me. I found these curtains at IKEA that are just lovely for a kitchen (though when I showed them to darkwolfie, he thought they were flies at first). These are adorable, too, and these, but I think I like the bees best.

And then we need a place to store our appliances. I haven't used my bread machine or my food processor in years because they're such a pain to get at (and then there was that 18 month absence, during which I reverted to cooking like a college student again), so having them handy would be great. I really like this high cabinet from IKEA in a beech finish. I'll have to look at it in the store, but what would make me happiest would be if we could put a hole in the back to thread the power cord for the microwave. Even if we can't, though, it'll be an improvement over the ugly, ugly microwave cart we have there now.

It's not what I want for the kitchen (that will involve ripping out the cabinets, redoing the back pantry, walling up a window, moving the refrigerator and stove, and installing new cabinets), but it will go a long way towards making it more usable and a nicer place to work.

i feel: okay okay
