Thursday Favorite Things Blog Hop 121- The Garage

thursday favorite things blog hopIt’s Time for the Thursday Favorite Things Blog hop. I can’t wait to see what you link up this week. ♥

My favorite thing this week is…. a garage, well not any garage.. the one in our kitchen! The appliance garage is wonderful for keeping things off of the counter.The toaster, rice cooker, can opener and cutting boards are all kept inside. Hidden from view but easily accessible. Love it! On the day I took this photo I was babysitting our youngest grandson. :-) I love being a Grandma ♥appliance garage

judy hBefore we start hopping I would like to dedicate this weeks hop to Judy of the blog, Judy H-J’s Thoughts of a Twinless Twin. She linked up to my hop every week from the beginning. She was a sweet bloggy friend. She is now sitting on a cloud with her sister who passed away in 2008. Judy left our earth on new years day.  I miss her, God bless and rest in peace.

    Katherine….I never shared this laundry room post because I was in the midst of packing. It would be my favorite room if I still lived in that house. I only wish I had chosen to complete it before the “end.” 😉

    This week I joined the Project Inspire{d} hosting team. Our link party goes live every Monday night at 8 EST. I’d be delighted if you would consider popping over and linking up some of your fabulously inspiring posts:

    Wishing you An ExtraordinaryDay!!

    • Catherine, thank you for always joining in the fun and for your love and prayers. Judy was a lovely woman and I will miss visiting her blog and seeing here sweet comments here. Smooches!

  51. Dearest Katherine
    I have always wanted an Appliance Garage, or Butler’s Pantry as we call them – either that or just the Butler to put the toaster away after the rest of the family have used them!!!
    I think I may be a bit ‘odd ball’ for the linky today – haha! But as always am drawn to participating and adding my favourite things which this week is tennis!! Hope that is ok?
    Thank you for hosting once again.
