I live in a smallish house in a Dallas suburb. While my home is sometimes referred to as "The Little Cottage in the Barrio" or as "The House of Weird" (largely due to the welcome mat that reads, "LEAVE," the two full rooms of books, and/or the five nutty animals we live with), I love my little place.
My kitchen is still waiting for an overhaul, but here it is as of now. I never thought I'd be that woman with a kitchen full of chicken paraphernalia, but when my granny Pauline died just after my daughter was born, I inherited a ceramic chicken from her kitchen. Not too long after that, I wound up with some chickens from my maternal grandmother's kitchen, and then yet another few from my great-grandmother's place after she went on to go terrorize angels or whatever feisty, old women do after they die. So now I'm that girl with a kitchen full of cocks, which would amuse some, but not all, of my grannies.
