Monday Nook

This Monday's Nook can be found on page 150 of this month's Australian 'Home Beautiful' old pantry, now owned by someone else....and most likely not featuring my Masterfoods slow cooker recipe bases! How embarrassment. I should have tidied up the pantry drawers before they took the photos. Recipe bases, tuna, arborio rice, two minute noodles! What was I thinking? Where was I?

Anyway, good old Home Beautiful is the 'gift that keeps on giving'...the glamour continues! You can find the whole pantry feature above in the September Home Beautiful, on the shelves now.

Monday again! Boy the weekends go fast! We had a great weekend.......friends birthday parties, soccer games, family time and sailing trips....and I got some seriously delicious time to myself, which I have been missing since my solo trip to New York and The Hamptons ....two weeks ago now! Do you scheme time by yourself?... I'm getting really good at it now! ....any excuse!

I have lots to talk about this week...lots of blog fodder, thanks to my trip. I will share some more of the Hampton Designer Showhouse and a beautiful interiors shop in New York that stopped me in my tracks!

Have great day! Happy Monday!

P.S. I know, I'm using Blogsy again. We've made up. Sort of. It's ok when you only have one photo to load up!



  1. I loved your kitchen. Meanwhile am writing a list of topics to workshop for our whiteboard on Friday night x

  2. Hysterical - don't worry about the pantry - makes you real and not contrived or styled within a mm of your life!!!! Glad you had a happy weekend - you are glowing with glee - can tell through your writing - yay for you A-M. You totally deserve your happiness. xxx

  3. Hehe, just keeping it real! I will have to have a look now!

  4. I will have a pantry like A-M. i will have a pantry like A-M. i will have a pantry like A-M.
    One day.
    Next house for sure.
    Happy days :)

  5. Hi A-M,
    i did spot your gorgeous pantry in the latest HB (but certainly didn't spot any "embarrassing items".) Hardly - just thought "Ah, there it is again, that perfect pantry from A-M's house.....
    I even remember the colour ("Stipple Seal" laminex from memory....)
    After having 3 white kitchens in a row, I am going taupe/greige for this one (limestone floors, taupe hand-painted cabinetry, white matchboard inside cupboards and behind pantry shelves, white marble & stainless-steel benches, white hand-made brick tile splashback) - seeing your pantry just re-inforced my decision! x

  6. I love that pantry nothing to worry about there food has to be stored some where & it all looks pretty good to me looking forward to seeing your next pantry I bet we will all be drooling over that one too :)) x

  7. Thanks A-M, was needing some pantry inspiration as mine could do with a tidyup. Thought your drawer storage for keeping these packet items together is a great idea also! It is a real kitchen pantry and you have nothing to be embarrased about. Your blog is such a delight. Cheerio, am off to buy a magazine!! x Jo

  8. No way A-Me, those food packets show the pantry is a working pantry, one that a real family uses.

  9. Hello AM Well you must feel chuffed each time "The House " appears in HB. Recipe Bases, 2 minute noodles, tuna etc - nothing wrong with that. It just shows us readers that you are like the rest of us - busy and that you actually use your kitchen to cook. Have a lovely day. Nice day down here. The sun is shining finallyxxx

  10. so beautiful A0-M - you are very stylish. What was your pantry cabinetry colour. looks very similar to my kitchen cabinetry.
    hope you are having a good week. BTW love your new range of lights over at Cape Cod.
