around the kitchen...

a few friends have made some nice comments about some of the wooden things in my kitchen (from my breakfast photos below) so i thought i'd post a couple of more of my favorites - our sugar box and salt cellar. most of the things we have are made of maple (my favorite wood), including our floors, cabinets, beds and nightstands. maya's playstands and cupboard, as well as our shelving and dressers, are made of pine. i prefer the lighter-colored, naturally modern, scandinavian type wood as i feel most connected to it. there is really something so special and comforting about wood. as it holds that organic spirit that all things that have lived hold... 





yours in wooden goodness,

shelley
