My Cookbooks love their new home!

I apologize for the lack of posts going on around here. I’m trapped in boxes and packaging tape over here. If I see a roll of tape I’m going to throw it out of the window! And boxes – I’m so tired of them! They are going to haunt me for quite some time.

The hardest part so far is trying to find room for everything. Our new apartment is smaller than our last apartment. It’s like trying to fit 10 lbs of sugar in a 5 lb container.  So I’m going to have to put my organization skills to the test and see what I can do! But in due time everything will be unpacked and have a place to go!

But our new place has a killer view. You have to see the beautiful view from my living room. It’s absolutely gorgeous.

I wanted to show you the beautiful home for my cookbooks. It’s the Lack Wall shelf from Ikea. And it’s a steal at $49.99!!  It’s like the perfect space for them. Although as you can see, I don’t really have much room to grow. If push comes to shove I can always find a new home for my Staub Vertical Roaster (that I absolutely adore!).

I mean seriously – wasn’t that Wall shelf MADE for that kitchen?

It’s funny because I bought that wall shelf when we lived in our old apartment. And Mr. Curly Fry kept going on and on about how I didn’t need that, it wasn’t necessary, blah blah blah. Well when we moved into our new place and I put it there, he said it looks great and we may need to get another one. What?! I made him repeat himself. That was music to my ears.

So that’s what I’m up to. Unpacking. And it’s really no fun. But what I am looking forward to is getting back into the kitchen! I can’t wait to cook and bake.

Something new for my kitchen is coming via UPS today, and I’m SO excited!!! Stay tuned to see what it is!

  2. I agree with Angie – that shelf is MADE for that spot. Even better – that VIEW! Cocktails at One Curly Fry’s 😉

  4. Sounds like we were both unpacking new apartments at the same time LOL. I definitely lucked out with a bigger kitchen than my last apartment. The configuration is such that the cabinet space is definitely lacking, but there was so much empty space, I was able to set up a whole separate “pantry” section, and it’s working out great. I love that your shelves allow you to read the titles straight on without turning your head sideways. As someone who often does battle with vertigo, tipping to one side can be a bad idea. I’ve been known to end up on the floor. 😉

    Your vantage point might give you a much broader view than from my new window, but right now, I’m happy as can be looking out at the leaves changing on all the trees. Give it another month or two and I’ll be wishing for your view rather than the snow piled up against my partially subterranean living room window. 🙁
