O.k. friends - now we take a look over at the left side of our new kitchen. This side is more utilitarian with the stove and refrigerator an all - but needless to say - I still like the way it turned out.
We have another matching corner cabinet on this side - these flank the double window which lets in a lot of great light. I filled this side with more of my pitchers - most of them gifted to me by my sweet "mamaws" and a couple of older quilts. "Quilts in the kitchen" you say - I know - I won't leave them there long but I love the pop of color they provided. I also have a small tree sitting on the bench. When it is not filled with "stuff" - it is great place for somebody to sit and watch the cattle graze out the window.
We opted for a simple hood but I'm already thinking about how I might "tweak" it a bit. I haven't been in here but a month and I'm already thinking about changing something - ;-) I can't help it - it is just me!
Here is a good shot of those drawers I was mentioning in the previous post - I do love these - I've got all my kitchen appliance books in one and the other is still waiting for something to fill it - don't worry - it won't have to wait long.
Here is my lil' scale that my precious momma bought for me - mainly - because it is one of my favorite colors even if it isn't accurate - obviously those cherries don't way 3 lbs. but it is still cute nonetheless. I bought a tiny poinsettia to fill my # pot - I love these pots - I'm gonna have to get some more.
Looking down the wall is the fridge - we are really enjoying our new Frigidaire appliances - I've never had a dishwasher or ice and water in the door before - so we are getting spoiled quickly!
And at the very end of that wall is my old mantle that I bought many months ago - not having a clue where it would end up - but here is where it has landed for now. I love the blue/gray color of it - so I didn't touch it.
And on that mantle, my carolers - I talk about them every year - are they glamourous - no, are they fancy - no, are they perfect - no - but to me they mean so much - my mamaw, Cleo, made them for me and I wouldn't trade them for anything! And that sweet picture - my lil' guy many years ago - but I just love that smile!
Have another fantastic week - and there are still more posts to come - like "where do we eat?"
