In The Jungle...The Mighty Jungle...

the lion sleeps tonight...
Somewhere ...sometime ago ...
I thought that every cabinet needed a buddy (plant).
Every wall needed picture...every floor needed a rug..



Hmmmmm..

  1. How did it turn into a jungle. I don't really have space above my cabinets. Not sure what I would do with it if I had it.

  5. I buy plants every chance I get. So if you want, you can send them here. I will love them:) I just bought two miniature roses today at the grocery store. Now if I can only keep them alive until spring.

  6. Hey if your need to get rid of any of them you can send them to my house, as my hubby says it is where plants come to die. I only have a green thumb if I've been spray painting.

    On another note I have a new favorite line from the book. Page33 We all fear that we aren't who we are pretending to be.

    Enjoy your release from the jungle.

  7. Those are some pretty plants in that jungle! Doesn't it feel different at first to see the cabinets without the plants, when you're use to seeing them up there! I noticed your beautiful white cabinets right away!

  11. Sometimes I forget that I have things on top of my cabinets... cake plates, a trifle dish, baskets. It's not for show, I don't have the storage!!

    And my jungle...it'll go back outside when the weather warms. But I hear you. De~clutter your home and de~clutter your mind!!

  22. Oh I've tried to take everything down but then it just looks naked to me. I think I'm stuck in the
    80s in that respect. :) Hopefully not any other way.

  27. I have been ridding my home of fake green stuff and love it. It only collects dust anyway for the most part. Simplify...it's becoming my theme.

    Have fun!

  30. I love your little rosemary topiary. Anyway, I know how you feel and I go through phases. Sometimes I like things less cluttered, other times I want a rich, full, warm look.

  31. There are nooks and crannies all through my home that are in DESPERATE need decluttering. Right now...I am looking at one. Looks like my husband's lovely habit of PILING things has now evading my psyche b/c I see a PILE of MY stuff that needs to be sorted.

    I have baskets above my cabinets...for now. :)

    Cheers~

  32. But you know what I noticed first in the last pic? The Route 44 Sonic drink! LOL! I need me a diet coke...

  33. Yes I hear you. Here in AZ they build home with huge cathedral ceilings and niches. So, plants to the rescue. They really need to be dusted, but I'd rather blog. :)

    Thank you so very much for the sweet wishes and tips for my upcoming trip.

  34. I have always loved house plants but I'm considering getting rid of most of them due to the fact of what a pain they are to clean. Whats a girl to do...?

    ReplyDelete
  35. I thought the same thing before but now I love the fact that I don't have to dust the crap above the cabinets anymore, it is pretty freeing. I think your kitchen looks great without anything above the cabinets!
