My Cottage Kitchen


Well, here they are, the long-promised kitchen photos. This is a vintage chandelier I picked up at a yard sale for three dollars! It hangs in the middle of our kitchen.
Cottage blue curtains with roses hang at the window -- there is a great view of the birds in the woods through this window! It *almost* makes washing dishes fun!!

This is an old Sellar's cabinet we picked up at auction. It has great chippy paint but needs some work!

A little area by the door, complete with bench for sitting to take our shoes off, and a shelf with cubbies and pegs for each member of the family (of course, I've hung vintage aprons on the pegs! :) The old blue stool was a garage sale find for seventy-five cents! A closeup of the bench and aprons.....Well, I hope you're not too disappointed now that you've seen our humble little kitchen in its entirety!!

But if you'd prefer vignettes, here's a closeup of the cabinet tops you see in the above photos! :)
Vintage tins and hens-on-nests

Bluebirds (of course) and an old pink cake carrier.....

And my small collection of vintage "Mother" rose cups that are in an old PINK metal cabinet....

Thank you for visiting me in my cottage kitchen today!!

Becca, I LOVE your kitchen, I can feel the love and attention that you have put into each detail to make it comfortable and homey. I love the cushions that you have under you awesome hanging vintage aprons. To me, vintage aprons bring back a time when you could smell home made bread cooking. Thanks so much for the tour!!! Awesome!!!

Your kitchen is utterly charming, a complete one off and so very personalized. There will not be another like it anywhere unlike a lot of kitchens that just all look the same. You have every justification to be proud of the end result. I also like the way you do the photos too.

I love every bit of it. It's soft, welcoming and just lovely. There's no way to be disappointed.

And to think kitchens tend to be some of the more challenging rooms, too!
