Mike and I have taken on another do it yourself project of enclosing the small back porch of our dinning room. And we started this endeavor on the very same week! (Crazy aren't we?)
I am going to try to share more ways that I have made our love of antiques and collectables function better in our home. (I say try, as I have already posted one blog today and somehow me or blogger did not save it properly and I lost it! ugh)
Although the eat end side of the kitchen is not full of clever ideals of storage an organization it works to hide all the things that I need today to prepare meals but maintain the colonial/prim decor that I so love.
It holds or hides ( depending on how you want to look at it) another obsession of mine....dishes! Another inherited trait from my Non Non! I will share more about this love another visit. One door open on the corner cabinet gives a peak at my transfer ware if I want to see it on any given day with out over whelming the eyes with all of them open.
It holds almost all of my small appliances as well as mixing bowls. I put simple cup hooks on the back of the door to hold all of the measuring tools. Keeping them handy with the mixers and bowls.
Lastly, I will share Mollies cabinet. I rarely neaten it as I get a "warm fuzzy" seeing it as she left it! My Dad built all of his gran-daughters one. (They all still have them.) Mike patterned one from it and built one for our house. I cannot begin to tell you how many cups of tea and coffee she has prepared for us here!
Thanks so much for coming!! I hope you have enjoyed your visit to my kitchen and that you drew a bit of inspiration from my sharing how living with antiques keeps my heart in our home. Be it ever so humble there truly is no place else like it!
