The Larder Is My Favorite Room In The House
Yesterday I spent the day running up and down the highways and byways. Among my many accomplishments was a long overdue trip to the grocery store. It was after dark when I got home and I unloaded the bags rather unceremoniously and left everything that would not parish, sitting in the floor. This morning my larder was a disaster. I though of how lovely it was when I first built its shelves and stocked them.
After seeing a swatch of Benjamin Moore's Sweet Pea in Domino, I knew I would one day use that color. It took several years, but I finally got a single wall of Sweet Pea. Since you can see the larder from the doorway in the wall, I used the same color for the wrought iron shelf supports.
I then began adding supplies.
Soon my larder was a vision.
This morning it was a nightmare. So I off to bring order from chaos.
While I am organizing, you can listen to Lyle Lovett sing about the larder, well he calls it a pantry, but we forgive him.
