Obscure Star Gate SG1 reference…
Onto the kitchen!
The only thing in this kitchen that is not as I want it, is counter top work space. That we plan to change in the not too distant future. Along with the sink cabinet and flooring.
As we walk in we see my apron hook. This apron is one I wear mostly as a serving one and is not my everyday work apron.
This little white cabinet was in fil’s laundry room. For now it serves as the mixing and coffee center.
The red crate houses most of the red speckle ware I collect. Beloved bought me these for Christmas last year. We have an amazing store down town called Eggemeyers… I spend a couple hours in there every time I go! The crate we found at an estate sale and it adds the perfect… something to this wall!
Turning to the right we see the shelf unit with the microwave in it and some food/utility supplies. Next to that is the built in oven. Underneathyou see my baking cabinet. Which the cats have discovered they can open at will.
Moving on we come to the stove, where more of my speckled ware is in use!
This bucket is the perfect size to hold all my utensils.
The little red tube is a really cool knife set I found at Kitchen Collection. It is 3 ceramic knives and they slide into a set of bristles that hold them in place. I had an extra ceramic knife and added it to the others. Very handy and cute!
Swinging around we come to the sink area. Not much special going on here. We plan to redo this area in the next few months, and we will redo the entire floor and the bathroom at the same time. We wish to replace the old cast iron plumbing stack. It makes sense to do it all at once.
One of my favorite parts of this area is this little old lady with a bustle. I used to house utensils in the bustle but since I have my nifty new bucket, I use her to hold straws I snag when I eat out and extra hand wipes and so on. She is just too sweet not to put her to use. Plus she reminds me of an awesome trip we took to meet up with my friend Sue Ellen in Brownwood. That was the best day I had in a long time!
Next is the refrigerator. Notice it has an in the door ice maker… Yes I LOVE this ice maker. I must have ice in my drinks and this makes it so easy!
Here is the old phone box. I love this bit of character.
However it needs to be useful… so I
Loaded it up with my cookbooks!
Well that is my kitchen. I hope you like it!
Next time we will travel through the kitchen to the living room.
