What made me want to post about it? Well, it started when I finally cleaned the food shelves in the cottage! You see, I don't have any
cupboards in the kitchen, it's in "renovation status," I'll talk more about that later! After it was cleaned and organized, tea, sugar, flour, salt & pepper on the top shelf, spices, oils and other seasonings on one shelf, baking goods on another shelf, and finally everyday items etc. on the bottom shelf.
After I had finished scrubbing the shelves, the phrase "my cottage larder" popped into my head! So I though I would share some photos of my cottage larder with you!
This is what I use to store my teabags in! I absolutely love this "tea jar" - Once upon a time I think it had a life as a cookie jar! I picked it up at a charity auction about 20 years ago!
Renovation Status . . . hmm, lets discuss! We've been renovating this little seaside cottage for many years, roof, plumbing, heating, electrical, windows, cedar shakes . . . well you get the picture. We've been focusing on the outside and with all the renovations, comes movement of windows, so my kitchen is ugly as sin! Thankfully I have a basic counter, sink, nice stove, and a decent refrigerator. Some day I hope to have nice white shaker style cabinets, open top shelves, farmer sink, tile back-splash and to be decided counter-tops! I have plenty of "before" photos, however I simply can't publish them until I have "after" photos . . . it's too much on the heart! I'm sure you understand . . . don't you?
