"Show us where you live Fridays"


********UPDATE*******

So, I feel like you really did not get to see my kitchen, so I went home and took some more pics to show you all!

This is my canister set. I searched high and low for one that would be the perfect fit in my kitchen, and here it is!


This is the border that is in my kitchen:


And this is the corner cabinet I told you about earlier. My parents got it for me and it is great!


This is the old toolbox I have decorated to match the grapes and wine in the kitchen. It sits out our bar:


And lastly, this is my glass cake holder. I love this thing. I added a little bunch of grapes to the front, and it sits in the corner of the bar! It's good to keep cakes or cookies in!



Now you have seen more of my kitchen, I hope you enjoyed the tour!

KITCHEN EDITION

Those of you who know me know that I love to read other blogs and see what is going on in the lives of others around the world. One wonderful woman I have met through this process is Kelly Stamps(I have not really met her in person, but I am sure that we would be friends if we would ever meet!) On her blog she is doing a little edition called "Show us where you live Fridays" She is showcasing different rooms in her house and has invited us all to join in with her! This Friday's room is the Kitchen.

My house is older with so many older things, but my kitchen is one room I am proud of. We have done so much work to our kitchen....I wish I had better pictures, but I really forgot about this and these just happen to be the pictures I have....I promise to do better next time!

This is a view of my whole kitchen:



Some of the things we have done to this kitchen are paint, add border, changed out the light in the center of the room, painting the cabinets, and add a new fridge. We still would like to get a new sink and faucet, new flooring and a new stove, but keep the way the stove looks now. In the corner you will see a small little corner cabinet. I love older, primitive things, and this is great for storing snacks and small things like baby food. My parents got it for us for Christmas 2007 and I love it! Another thing that I love is the vase on the counter. It is carnival glass that my Mamaw had and my mom gave it to me. I have now started collecting more and more of it in hope of one day having a bigger kitchen with a china cabinet that I could showcase this all in. Some of the things that I love about this kitchen are the amount of cabinets I have, the older lights above the bar, but the thing I love the most is the stove:



Isn't that the best stove? The people who lived in the house before me did a lot wrong, but this is one things that is right! I love this!

I did not know if we were supposed to put our dining rooms on this, but I decided to wait for Kelly to do a dining room edition! So, if so, sorry, I'll get it next time!
