Out of curiosity, are you darling readers, closed cabinet type of people….

Or open shelving types?

Because, I love the look of open, but the handiness of hiding all my stuff behind doors….
I am about to start an adventure that I have never attempted before. Pickling carrots.
I have tried cucumbers before…not a fan of the result. Too much pickling spice, no dill. This time I am armed with a recipe from the internet (meaning someone else’s!) and my pure talent (ha!).
Wish me luck!
And any tips would be greatly appreciated!! (Kelli & Tony this means you…..PLEASE let me have that recipe!!)
Oh, and if it works, I’ll put up the recipe…if it doesn’t, we will never mention this again, ok?!
Have I mentioned that I love “The Pioneer Woman“…Ree Drummond?!?
If you have no idea who I am talking about, the short version is…she’s a mom of 4, rancher’s wife and a blogger. She has a site “The Pioneer Woman” that she started about three years ago and is now raking in just under a million a year from it….The advertising space on it sells for big bucks because she gets like tens of thousands of readers everyday! Craziness….
Anyways, I discovered her before Christmas and spent an afternoon reading her archives about their renovation of a guest house on their ranch…they basically gutted the entire thing and started over.
I now am itching to reno…..the style of the house is gorgeous and I want it! The first thing that caught my eye was the kitchen…
I love this kitchen not because I am a chef by any stretch of the imagination, but because I adore the open concept and think the deer heads are fantastic. My husband on the other hand, disagrees…
He can’t imagine why anyone would hang deer heads in a kitchen…that aren’t real.
“Why would you spend money on wood deer heads when you won’t let me hang my trophy ones in the house?!?”
Hmmmm…he’s got me there…ok, so no deer heads…
But can I have the rock wall and cement countertops?
