I loved walking past the butler’s pantry at Casa Mi Ojo in Careyes, Mexico during our recent visit. It was so serene, cool and calm.
Simple, lovely, local hand crafted crockery all cleaned, stacked, and rowed, neat and tidy, and ready for the next occasion.
A place for everything and everything in it’s place.
Once the pantry was cleaned, painted and the shelves were lined, the real fun began: finding a place for everything, and putting everything in it’s place. On the back wall, bottom shelf (more of a “riser”, to lift them from the floor, from CS) rests our most frequently used trays and boards.
It took a stretch of 2 days to complete this project, and once I was committed, it became an intriguing puzzle of possibilities I took great pleasure in obsessing over. Of course, when I was finished I was so thrilled with the efficiency of this space I wondered why I had put it off for so long.
Now, Jeeves, please, just grant me the discipline to keep everything in it’s place!!
