you can't take the country out of the girl

i've been living in a small ohio town for a little over two years now.  in feb. 2010 m and i finally were able to get a place of our own.  not everything we wanted but nice and affordable.  but my point in this post is this that i finally feel i've turned our home and primarily my kitchen into what i wanted it to be while still integrating m's whimsical nature as well.  you see, he is the one primarily responsible for what has become a chicken theme.  i was just going for that homey, country feel. it took me awhile (until recently, actually) to find the perfect and affordable pieces: the primitive writing table, the antique sideboard, etc.  in the meantime, over the course of the past two years, we have somehow managed to accumulate a large quantity of chicken decor.  but, it works!

welcome to my humble abode.

i love this old writing table.  the drawer gives me a handy place to stash my journal, grocery ads and lists.

clem. he's a cocky old bird.

about everything in our home is secondhand/previously loved.  nothing new here. even my curtains, the baskets, etc. are thrift store finds.  it's just a small kitchen, but i love that it's an eat-in kitchen rather than a galley kitchen with a separate dining area. someday, before we are too old, we hope to be in a more spacious apt. or home with a place for a small garden. but we are here for now and have made it work.

i can't homestead like i used to due to apt. living and the fact that both m and i having physical limitations, but i still do my best to keep my life simple, sacred & sustainable and i can make it feel like country.
