Works for Me Wednesday - Kitchen Drawers
I wanted to share something that I have been thinking about doing for year, but just recently tried and I am so glad I did. Several years ago I was going through the Good Things of Martha's Mag and spotted some major eye candy for me! An organized Knife and cooking utensil drawer. It was beautiful....what made it so beautiful and how did she keep it that way (oh yeah, I forgot - she has a staff)? I loved it so much I vowed to do that very thing to make my new kitchen (new is now 6 years old) even better. Sooo, I happened to be in the neighborhood of our local fabric store and that eye candy popped into my head! Straight over to the felt I went and now for a little over two weeks, I have had the most perfect knife and gadget drawers. Take a peek!

Sorry, I'm just in love with this drawer : )
And this one! Nothing shifts around and when I put the dishes away - everything has a place!
This is another little secret (not Martha's) that I wanted to share...I got this little secret SitsaM...she's a little Italian cook, who has been teaching me the art of "sauces". While I was in her kitchen, I noticed that she has silverware in two drawers, one near the table (where mine is) and one next to her stove. The one next to the stove only has a few spoons, forks and knives, but I watched her reach for those while she was cooking instead of taking from the "tableware". Smart! Huh? If you already do this - I think you are a genius! Well, it just so happens I have one set of silverware that is not a complete set and now it has a home and everybody knows where they go based on their pattern. So that's what works for me (and Martha) Grey Flannel! I'm going to go organize another drawer or something, Tata for now!
