Okay, so I'm supposed to be taking it easy after a bad spell last week...and of course, I want to tackle a million and one different things. In the interest of occupying myself without overexerting myself, I'm going to make some things for around the house. I want to put some fun, even quirky sayings all around the house. I'm a word nerd, and have tons of wonderful sayings floating through my head at any given time. However, for whatever reason, I'm stuck on the kitchen.

See, I've got a spot in my kitchen where I attempted something with paint and decided I absolutely do not like it. I purposely put it somewhere that I can hang something over it to cover it if I didn't like it. But now...I haven't thought of the right saying. And that spot is really bugging me; it's just begging me to cover it up every time I'm in the kitchen. And I'm in my kitchen A LOT every day.

So, anyone got anything? Right now I'm stuck on "Moral fiber cannot be found in a cereal box." Yeah, not sure that's really what I want hanging there.

Here's a few.

A clean kitchen is the sign of a wasted life.

A messy kitchen is a happy kitchen, and this kitchen is delirious!

I like hugs and I like kisses, but what I’d love…is help with the dishes!!

If you want breakfast in bed . . . sleep in the kitchen!

Keep this Kitchen clean . . .Eat out!!

This is a self-cleaning kitchen . . .clean up after yourself!

Thousands of people have eaten in my kitchen and gone on to lead normal lives.

Life is uncertain, eat dessert first.

I have one over my stove that says

Mom's Kitchen
Today's special
Take it or leave it

simplydevastated: Okay, I'm twisted, but since you suggested it, I'm gonna share what you inspired. "Pudding is awesome." does not work for the area I really want to cover; however, it has so totally found a spot in my kitchen. I have a habit of painting coffee cans and using them as storage containers; so I'll paint one like the huge can of pudding, fill with (I'll figure it out) set it on the corner shelves we're building and add a little sign. Viola. I like. I'm probably weird.

authenticnow: I like it. So applicable in our household. Hmmm...maybe...it could work...

lostinthismess: I think I might paint this on an old cookie sheet that I first paint with blackboard paint. (I so dig this stuff.) Then I can have DD write out what we're making each day.

Thanks for the suggestions. And, I'd love to hear more if you've got some.

Mine is painted to look like a chalkboard also. I love the look. Above our Keurig we also have a rustic chalkboard that says
"I Love"
With a blank square underneath to fill it. Sometimes we get silly and sometimes serious, but I dig it 😉

There are tons of Julia Child quotes I love. For example, "if you're afraid of butter, use cream," "life itself is the proper binge," "Everything in moderation...including moderation," and "I think every woman should have a blowtorch."

That is awesome! I love it!

I have, "If music be the food of love play on" by Shakespeare wall worded in my kitchen.... love it.

Whatever you do, don't search "kitchen quote" on Pinterest unless you have hours of time you weren't planning on using.

FindMyselfAgain posted 5/14/2014 13:27 PM

rachelc - that's perfect! Thank you. The spot I want to cover is over a doorway that leads into my stangely shaped hallway that we have turned into a music room.

And, confession...I've not even checked out pinterest. It scares me. At any given time I have like a million crafty things I'd like to do. I'd get lost if I ever started looking.

And I will so be checking out some Julia Child quotes. I don't know why that didn't occur to me. I use to love watching her.

Repaint it with chalkboard paint. Then you can change the quotes as your mood strikes you.
