I went back into the arcived posts from January 23rd and found a few and then decided to recapture my kitchen this morning.
(I am flitting around camera in one hand, an mug of coffee in the other!)
East wall of kitchen, glimpses of the dining room
a butler's door that swings both ways
is on the far left.
My floor is soft fir and is easily marked and pitted
I throw down rugs to keep it warm and add some vintage ambiance.
A modcon amid vintage 1913 arts and crafts
silver, recently polished, above the fridge gleaming!
The phone has a deep gurgle of a ring
as it thrums, I love it!
Bins which open are to the left hold onions and spuds
It is a sunny morning so I had to close the blinds to capture these images...
even with the dark fir it is a bright space when the sun is shining
it does become gloomy in the winter and I turn on more lights.
I am not the only dishwasher here...Kitchenaid is on the job too!
Pantry cupboard where I store food...it used to have an opening to the outside with a mesh screen
I suppose it was cold storage but we have boarded that up!
My kitchen nook
I blog from this arts and crafts table and bench seat
Our border and my talented friend Cheryl Fortier's acrylic
(I have 4 pieces of her work which I cherish)
she has a website www.cherylfortier.com
go and see her work
She and her husband are in Auvilar France on exchange until the Fall.
Shelves for cookbooks
Family room to the immediate right.
The Humble Bungalow is a small scale "working man's" home built in 1913
it is very modest.
When we purchased the Bungalow it was in need of a major overhaul
it had been rented out and neglected
we took it on and painstakingly restored it
is now on the Heritage Registry and protected from the wrecking ball!
There were times when the children were teenagers and brought many friends home
that I deeply desired a larger space
we even looked at some
I see that it is a perfect retirement home for the two of us as we advance in age.
