NON-Succulent Saturday or Kitchen Remodel part 1

We have begun our kitchen remodel... Ah, what upheaval!

(Here is our world's-tiniest-kitchen - pre-intervention. Band-aide colored tile and all.)

And, here is it with everything but the fridge and oven removed... Wiring, plumbing, and patching all done. We are now sinkless for the next three weeks.... No succulence happening here at the moment...

And in a sort of mysterious and creepy aside - here is what was underneath one of the base cabinets- yarn scraps, stuffed critters, a draw-string purse and five half-filled baby bottles... (eww!) We've lived here for over 6 years, so it's obviously been there awhile. *How* it got there - I have No Idea....

I'm guessing there was a loose floorboard at some point and the unknown kid thought it was fun to "vanish" some objects.

That, or you have a baby infestation. ;)

Ah ha! Now we can settle the argument about who has the smallest kitchen - I have! Yours is twice the size of mine and much nicer, (My goodness, I can even see a table and chairs!) That is some debris you've uncovered, the baby bottles (not one but five!) is interesting. I dread to think what we'd find under our cupboard. Singular.

Tara, sometimes I sing along to your posted music. Sometimes I just bang my head with envy of chooks, cedar-shaded valleys.
And sometimes...I laugh my head off at the stuff people find when renovating. Baby bottles, stuffed Muppets, possible mouse nests.
You know, don't you, that this must make its way into a sketchbook...

Geez, it makes me wonder what we would see in our houses if we got to crawling baby level. My kitchen is a bad 1970s reno and we are planning to tear it out in a few years. Wonder what we will see?? Whatever it is, it will probably be of the avocado green and harvest gold era of the rest of the kitchen. :)

Ahhhh....remodels. disruptive, annoying, aggravating and WONDERFUL. I can't wait to see what you do - and LOVE the description of "band-aide color", LOL

I feel for you for living without a kitchen! Hopefully it will go fast and smooth.
