What a beautiful day here in Tennessee!
What about where you are?
I have spent some time in my kitchen recently readying it up for the fall and winter months ahead. I love the anticipation of pumpkin muffins cooking in the oven, Christmas baking, and mugs of hot cocoa. The coffee maker is always a must in our home, but I love adding new fall flavors.
You know I have spent much time thinking about my kitchen cabinets and my counter tops and the what ifs. I really don’t do that much anymore because it’s pretty much a mute point at this time. I think the word I used last time I talked about our kitchen was “embracing” what you have.
Embracing is what I have done.
Now when I see my kitchen, I tell myself how warm and cozy it looks with those “beautiful” oak cabinets. I have added lots of copper, which I am in love with. I have added black hardware and light fixtures. I am using industrial stools, shaggy rugs, and of course my white dishes and galvanized pieces.
I now very much enjoy and am very satisfied with my warm and cozy kitchen. (until my husband says I can do something different, that is)
Let me take you on a little look around…
Love my nanny’s handwritten recipes taped to the wall.
I love locker baskets!
Someday I will have a stainless steel fridge that matches my dishwasher. However, we are the kind of people that don’t replace something until it’s broken and my fridge “aint broke”.
Wow! Was that ever a lot of pictures.
Hope you enjoyed taking a little tour around our kitchen today. Sure would be nice to have you join our family for a nice southern cooked dinner.
