classy rustic

I managed to sleep for nine hours straight so today I'm feeling better. But I would like my right nostril back; I think it has gone missing. To feel a little like myself again I decided to embrace my kitchen and bake biscotti. The loaf is in the oven as I write this and my sense of smell is obviously back as I can feel the smell coming from the oven. I almost can't believe I'll be dipping biscotti into my latte again. I'm alive!

What do you think of that kitchen above? I wish I could tell you it was mine. I love the rustic touch; it's like classy rustic. This is very close to my idea of a perfect kitchen.

Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone!
