More Kitchen...

I've slowly been tweaking my kitchen(actually I never really stop), but anyway, here are some more pictures of how looks at the present time.

I took all my cows out of the kitchen and moved them to family room, this left more room for other things.  Like pretty old jars in the window...

And I moved the old scale from a corner to right over the the sink.

On the other side of the room I kept the baking center but  tweaked the counter top. I made my tea easily accessible and I added a thrifted shelf that I painted and added pegs too. (the cake stand has been empty for awhile now, I don't need the temptations)

 I still want to get a green plant of some sort for the left side of the counter and put it in one of the white enamel pots. It just needs a pop of color, don't you think?

Picnic baskets underneath provide pretty storage and they are actually useful too. The smallest one on the top is missing from this picture because my oldest daughter used it on a picnic for her boyfriend and herself :)

I love this raw honey in my tea, the smell is not the most pleasant thing but the taste is the best.

Over my island, I changed up the wood crib bottom that I have hanging. Gone is all the copper and aluminium ware. I put my egg crates and chicks up there. Simplified and I like it.  There is nothing hanging from below it anymore either.

So all the cows are out and the chickens are back in :)

It's raining here today, maybe I will work on the half bath some more.

Have a grand day,



  1. Hi there! Thank you for visiting me at Maine Homemaker. We share a beautiful state, don't we? I'm really enjoying your blog. You have such an eye for decorating. I love that light you have over the table as well - it is so beautiful!

  2. Hi Tiff,
    I love the way you decorate.
    Your kitchen looks wonderful.
    Everything looks great but I believe my favorite may be the hanging display above the island.
    So cute!!
    Enjoy your weekend. It has rained for three days here. I think I am going to go nuts if I don't get a break from it soon. I can't stand rain! Plus I have stuff to get down to the new booth, which is currently sitting empty.
    Brett keeps telling me to relax but it is starting to stress me out. Hurry back sunshine!
    Sorry to babble on. Also sorry for not being around much lately. I've been trying to do better, but life keeps getting in the way.
    Hope all is well with you and yours.
    Take Care sweetheart,

  3. I love it all, esp. the hanging chicken coop! lol

    I really love your egg crates and the way you displayed them!!!
    Prim Blessings
