My theme for the A to Z
Challenge is Laura Ingalls Wilder. Laura Ingalls Wilder was the
author of the Little House books and there was a television
series very loosely based on the books. I began reading the
books when I was eleven years old (which even I have a hard
time believing is over 40 years ago!). If you would like to
read about my feelings about Laura, visit this site. I have also listed helpful sites and blogs in my sidebar if you would like to learn more.
Y is for Yellow.
Ever since I was able to live my first dream and visited Rocky Ridge, I’ve wanted the following:
Laura’s kitchen at Rocky Ridge Farm is yellow. Now, mind you, I’m not looking to recreate it exactly. I mean, my husband built the most beautiful cupboards and cabinets in my kitchen/dining room and I wouldn’t even consider painting them. And he also made our table (the chairs are Amish-made). I just want to paint the walls yellow (and blue). And I’d like some of her things – like the glassware and breadbox and canisters. And I love the stove.
