What's New in the Kitchen?

My children gave me some gift cards for Mother's Day. Since they were not to a cross stitch store, I assumed they didn't want me to spend the gift cards on cross stitch supplies.

Since I have been looking at butcher block carts / islands for the kitchen, it seemed like a good idea to use the gift cards to get the cart in this picture.

On Tuesday afternoon, Mark met me at Ikea, where I picked out the island / cart that I wanted. Mark carried it to the register for me, and hauled it back to my house, where he even put it together and put some towel bars on each end. It looks really good in the kitchen and gives me more work space as well as some storage on the shelves.

Thanks kids, for a great Mother's Day gift!
