ok, ok. i'll admit it!

I love Martha Stewart. I do. I know she's an ex-con, but I love her.

And I think that's ok.

I don't subscribe to her magazine, but I heard she had this amazing issue out for September, and I had Mat stop and buy it for me at Borders.

It's packed with amazing little things, like this...

I'm obsessed with schoolhouse pendants. When we own our own home one day, I'm going to put them everywhere. Especially in my kitchen. And office. And laundry room. And hallways. Everywhere.

And the magazine also held this little recipe for Espresso Creme Brulee. Oh, heaven.

There was also this idea to paint a planter instead of putting your address number on your house.

And really, it's not so much that I love Martha, per se, but I love her kitchen.

And there was an entire article about her kitchen...

Yes. Martha's 50 Top Kitchen Tips. Yes, please.

I love, love, love her gray kitchen. I love how clean and crisp it is. I also love that it is a "working" kitchen, and it's not just all for looks.

But, seriously, what does this woman not own like 52 of?! I'm so jealous of her knives collection. And that she has not one, but two honey dippers. TWO. Swoon.

She also has like a bazillion crocks full of bamboo kitchen spoons and spatulas and stainless whisks. Have mercy...

There is also, of course, no shortage of kitchen counter space. I envy her kitchen just because of the counter space. I love counter space. An cook needs counter space like an artist needs canvases!

And finally, she has glass cabinets. I could live in a glass cabinet! I think they are so classy. And she has sets of matching glassware. It's great. So incredibly great.

I'm jealous of Martha and her kitchen. Maybe she'll read this and decide I need a kitchen just like hers. One can only hope!


  1. So, um. I think I need to go buy this magazine now. :-)

  2. I love Martha too and I can't wait to buy this issue!!

  3. I love all the ideas from this magazine, they are so creative and imaginative. I came across your post this afternoon while browsing interior design blogs and the topic of window treatment selection was very interesting to me. What window treatments would match with a decor such as this? It is true that you must dress your windows appropriately to bring out their true beauty.
