From Cindy (Lucy's Tales), in Olympia, Washington:
As an adult I have lived in 5 homes, 2 of which I was blessed to own. But not until I was fortunate enough to design and build my own home did I actually have what I thought was a real pantry.
I did try to make the best use of the spaces that I have had and tried to make a proper "pantry" wherever I lived. It has always been a special place, "wherever" it was, some drawers, a cupboard or an old wardrobe.
Now it's a tiny little room designated for my "stores" and "provisions". If the world were coming to an end, this is where I would hole up with my family. In fact, if it had a window and room for a desk, that is where I would spend the majority of my time. It makes me happy and I am unable to explain why. Few things give me more pleasure than coming home (after cleaning the house) from the grocery or Costco and filling my little pantry with all the essentials and a few unessentials to put on my shelves. (See more photos and read more about Cindy's pantry here.)
On Saturdays, we peek into Other People's Pantries.
Come on -- show us your pantry.
