WOYWW #275 and Cauliflower Recipe

These two photos show the progress I have been making in unpacking, I am standing at the computer end of the room. The white cupboard took me 2 hours to move is now in the middle of the room. Here is the story of why it took me 2 hours to move. You can see the bathroom door in the middle half open where I discovered in THIS POST that I could take the perfect photo in there of all places.

 The photo above and below is taken from the other end of the room, looking towards the computer desks. Tables are out and boxes are down. All looks a little hodgepodge right now as nothing is in its place. The white cupboard will hold all the dies and embossing folders, I decided I would dedicate a whole cupboard to it as the collections are expanding. I get my exercise just walking from one end of the room to the other LOL
We will be picking up a 12 seater dining table (don't ask me where I am going to fit it), and a chest of drawers and a buffet and hutch. I will have to make them all fit, at a bargain price of $500 we couldn't pass up this offer as they are all very hard wood and in perfect condition. Stay tuned for more photos of these new additions.
For the foodies who visit, I made some cauliflower soup which was delicious, so hubby reckons, I didn't get to eat any because it went off before I could try it hahahaha so today I am making some more. 
Here is the RECIPE if you'd like to make it.
You can check out the refreshing drinks I've been making lately HERE

Looks like a marathon going from one end to the other.... I'm sure you will fit the table in once you have emptied a few more boxes .... Have fun and I'll keep tuned to see the progress

That room is looking FAB! So HUGE. Might try the recipe - I like cauliflower, and get a little tired of DHs favourite version (roasted with Nigella seeds and turmeric, onions and garlic) so always on the lookout for another option.

Happy WOYWW!

How many tables do you have to work on Bridget? Such a lot of stuff to play with.


Regina Hamilton said...

That's a huge space. So many tables and supplies. Love it #56

Julia Dunnit said...

How about -and this is just an idea I'm throwing out there - how about you use the new wooden furniture to REPLACE some of the furniture you have already...after all it's only to put stuff on!!
When you've finally finished unpacking..what will you do? II don't thinkm I've ever seen you actually crafting!!

Amy E said...

Wow Bridget, your room is really coming along!! Cant' wait to see your new furniture, although just like you said, I an't figure out how you're going to fit it all in there!! But $500 for all that is a crazy good deal!

Oh, and the desk you saw is actually in my craft room, but as messy as it is, I may as well be crafting in my kitchen! haha!

Happy WOYWW!

Elizabeth said...

Wow, Bridget! That is one seriously big craft room. Hope you get straightened out soon so that you can get on with some crafting again. I've been soup making too, it's that time of year here :) Hope you have a great week. Elizabeth x #78

What a huge space! What fun it will be decorating it with your own art.
Big enough also for family gatherings?
The story about why it takes 2 hours to move a cupboard is very recognizable!
Happy WOYWW!
