My checkered rolling pin is very dear to me. I just love the red and white colors that are so fitting here in my little cottage kitchen.
I love to stand in my kitchen and gaze at all the pretties in my open kitchen cabinets. The colors are so bright and happy looking.
More Kitchen Photos:
Someone asked me to show some more kitchen pics. So here are my kitchen cabinets with my new dishes.
And if you’re wondering, yes, my kitchen shelves are always this neat. Because I’m a neat freak about it.
I hate it when things are disordered or out of place.
I’m one of those people who walk by and see a mug not quite lined up with the others. And then proceed to straighten it.
A Kitchen That Looks Like A Collage:
Here’s a question I don’t know if I want the answer to. Would you be able to live with a kitchen that looked like a collage? A very colorful collage?
Because that’s what my kitchen cabinets now remind me of. One big colorful collage.
I like to keep a vintage Mason jar full of coffee beans to scent the air. Here it is on top of my stove with a vanilla tapered candle sticking in it, next to a Halloween candle.
Cabinet Above My Stove:
This cabinet above my stove holds all kinds of goodies. Two vintage watering cans at either end of the top cabinet shelf.
Old mason jars. A red picnic basket and a set of ceramic kitchen canisters I bought at a garage sale for $5.
My Coffee Bar:
And here’s my coffee bar with lots of red. A red stand-alone shelf with coffee mugs, salt and pepper shakers, and a little white sugar container.
Next to that is a jar filled with coffee. And another jar with Splenda packets inside.
My small red Keurig machine is there as well, all ready to make me a cup of coffee.
A Rescued Kitchen Cart:
And all sit on the kitchen cart I rescued from the trash and painted.
All is right with the world.
