The kitchen had been muddled many times,
years before we even set eyes on it and it was a disaster.
Mr HB took time thinking about the improvements and figuring out a workable design...with 3 doors in the space and a set of stairs it was tricky...
The room off to the left is our TV room where we have two love seats.
The stove and island are in front of the stairs that lead
to the laundry room, hobby room, Mr. HB's work area and guest room.
Shaw French country sink and pantry cupboard on the right.
Glass fronted cupboards for crockery...
and an open workspace are essential.
Above the sink ~ windowsill orchids...
Sophie Conran Portmeirion,
McCoy basket weave pot with my favourite wooden spoons and spatulas.
Two of these pots sit behind the stove with utensils at the ready.
I like using wooden spoons and they develop a patina over time.
The radio is on when I am in the kitchen...
I tune into the CBC most of the time.
The Kitchen Aid...
I keep it handy on top of the counter as I find it so useful.
Many of my other seldom used appliances are hidden out of the way.
My day starts with a cafe creme every morning.
A luxury that I acquired while visiting Paris and SW France.
This De Longhi espresso machine is small and efficient.
The sink "work station"
domestic life needs some organization.
Many hours every day are spent in the kitchen by choice as I love to cook.
So naturally it plays a prominent role in our home.
Working in a space that is pleasing to the eye...
with tools and equipment that help it function efficiently
and a few extras make my job here easier.
A drawer full of tea towels and napkins...
There is not a lot of storage on our small bungalow so I try not to buy too many gadgets.
Keeping things to a minimum is simple and it saves money too.
My feline "companions" are here most of the time keeping me company.
Chester lying on the table...
Pepper drinking from the tap...
I apologize for any inconvenience but in light of the recent flurry of spam and unpleasant comments
I have opted to moderate all blog comments.
