I love my new kitchen island my husband made me. It comes right below my waist. Which will make rolling and cutting pastas,and breads so much easier. He had me design it and pick out the supplies . So I would get just what I wanted. I did find a paper towel holder tonight That I am going to paint and have him add to the side. He had mentioned adding one. But at the time I wasn't sure.
Since I was showing you my island I thought I would also show you my kitchen. You have seen the counter many times when I had posted recipes. So why not the rest of it. It's small be I like it. I added these removable picture last week. I found them at Hobby Lobby. They were to cute to pass up.
My poor husband is always having to look for a dish towel. Now he doesn't have to. It hangs right by the sink. I received this beautiful hook from my friend Ruth Ann for Christmas. My husband was so happy to see this go up on the cabinet. You would think it was for him. The sad part of this story is, it probable still won't make it to the hook after being used.
I love my magnetic dishwasher cover. I have this one and a Christmas one. These came from my friend Marion. My friends know me so well.
This self my husband made me fits perfect over my sink.
Every kitchen needs a compost container. I found this one in Bishop California on one of our fishing trips.
This is the far corner of my kitchen. The 50's bread box is a new find.
This was taken from the other side of the open kitchen counter. See the tin above the oven ? When we had to buy a new oven to replace the one that died, it didn't fit.. They no longer make ovens the length of our old one. So we had a hole to cover up. It turned out to be a blessing. I fell in love with the look of the tin above the oven.
This is from the other angle. It's great having a window that looks out over my back yard and garden. Unfortunately it wasn't great for my kitchen curtains. They got faded by the summer sun.
Here is a shot of the other side of the room. Please excuse the frig. I tack everything up there. If it's paper and I think I can us it ,it go's on the frig.
This is the fabric for my new kitchen curtains. This time I am adding muslin to the back ,so I won't have the fading problem . Hope you enjoyed my little tour.
