VINTAGE COTTAGE KITCHEN

I have the most adorable kitchen to share with you today.
If you like vintage, pastel colors, and pink refrigerators, 
you're going to love this.
I ran across this kitchen on the Barn Light Electric Blog.
This renovation won the grand prize in a photo contest 
and I can see why.


The pendant lights which are perfect for the space are just one of so
many wonderful details:
- simple white cabinetry with marble countertops
- open shelving with cute scalloped borders are loaded with vintage
enamel cannisters, jadeite cake plates, and pretty dishes
- industrial range with aqua tile backsplash and large corbels on each side
-  and of course the pink retro fridge is like the cherry on top


The rest of the open space blends seamlessly with the kitchen.
Isn't it pretty?


Soft blue paint on the walls and crisp white sofas.
Two gorgeous chandeliers.
Love the big old cabinet with the large basket on top too.


You can see a little more of the kitchen from this angle.
It looks like there's a big farmhouse sink and 
some storage with glass doors at the far end.

I hope you enjoyed taking a look at this kitchen and living space.
FYI ~ I'm not being compensated for this post ~ I just loved this
when I saw it and wanted to share.

HAVE A GREAT DAY!

  13. It's rare to see homes that entirely embrace the vintage look. I guess that's because supplies for antique homes are difficult to find nowadays. In any case, I love the soft pastels of that kitchen. The owners definitely aced that design. Thanks for sharing that, JoAnne! All the best to you! :)

A HOUSE ON A LAKE

Many of us dream of having a beach house but when you don't live anywhere near the ocean, a house on a lake might be a more realistic possibility. Lake houses or cabins tend to be a little more rustic and cozy, I think, and there's something to be said for being surrounded by tall trees, the sounds of nature, and possibly a few critters. Here are a few lake houses I found on Houzz.   Some small, some bigger, some more rustic than others. Take a look and let me know what you think.

Home For The Holidays ~ Entry, Family Room and Kitchen

I have always loved the phrase "Home for the Holidays". Even though we are taking a short trip right before Christmas, we will be back in time to enjoy Christmas at home.

Of course, home can be wherever the people I love will be.
That's the most important thing and the most necessary ingredient.





But I don't mind if it also includes a cute little reindeer.





And a decorated mantel.





A Christmas tree, of course.



Pretty packages.






And a cozy kitchen with little bits of Christmas sprinkled around.







Christmas also includes our cute kitty with visions of sugarplums dancing
in his little head . . . or kitty treats, whichever.


Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by.
I know there are so many beautiful homes to visit right now.

Hope your Christmas is Merry and Bright!

Farmhouse Style In My Kitchen

Wow! Farmhouse style has really taken off, hasn't it? I love it just as much as many of you out there. One of the great things about it is that it's fairly easy to add  to your decor and it can be relatively inexpensive too.
Here are a few recent finds for my kitchen that I think give it a little more of that farmhouse feeling. 

Now this one is pretty obvious considering it has the word "FARM" right on it  : ) This came from a little shop I went to while we were on vacation  and it really inspired me to add a few more farmhouse style accessories.


I have admired these vintage scales forever and I finally found one on Ebay  that I thought would look great in my kitchen and was also a reasonable price. Boy, some of them are really pricey!



Any good farmhouse has to have a rooster, right? A quick little project I did was add blue grain sack stripes to this white wooden rooster. I think he is pretty proud of them!


Of course mason jars and pretty little flowers bring on th…
