~~~Welcome to MY NEW KITCHEN!!!~~~

 Happy Tuesday everyone! Today is my hubby's birthday! I am finally ready to reveal my new kitchen. As I said before, the kitchen, morning room and great room are all one big space. So here we go. This picture above is the cooktop wall. The piece behind the cooktop is made of iron so safe to be behind the stove. Below we are going to the right and starting to look toward the great room.
 Continuing to the right is the sink and breakfast bar. We are looking into the great room. I LOOOOOVE this open space!
 Joe and I sit here for some meals but the TV is too small so sometimes we eat at the table too. Til we get a larger TV:)
 These are our Fall placemats, that we are using right now.
 I got this candle holder several years ago at the place where I used to work. The S and P are many years old and I forget where I got them:)
 These are our new barstools. We chose them because we wanted wood to blend in with the floor and cabinets and they swivel too.
 I have done some decorating above the cabinets but keep tweaking it. I actually bought a big jar a few months ago for up there but haven't found it yet:):) The large jar on the very right is actually made of paper mache and is as light as a feather:) It LOOKS very heavy though.
 This is on the other side of the kitchen. The 2 tiered piece I got at Home Goods when I went to the beach in Sept. I love it above the fridge. Right now it holds pumpkins, soon it will be Christmas:)
 Here is a longer shot of the same area.

 Here is the phone station. I used to collect poterry: for MANY years. I went to juried craft shows and got some nice, unique pieces. And tghis was before the prices went sky high. I got all of these pieces for MUCH less than I would have to pay now. They are fitting in nicely in this new house. I have repurposed the little piece that is several small pots connected together to store pens.
 Joe's cocktail station til he gets the bar built downstairs.
 I placed a VERY large basket that used to hold blankets on it's side and filled it with greens.
Another large pottery piece. I am trying to use pottery and baskets above the cabinets for now.

 I LOVE the gas stove. There is a smooth cooktop base under the grates so it is MUCH easier to clean. I am getting used to cooking with gas now.
 I made this arrangement last year and like it there in the corner.
 Another pottery piece used as a utensil holder.
 This is the pumpkin/gourd topiary I made severeal years ago. Did you notice the pottery switch plate cover? I have 3 and they are now in place here.

 I know you can guess how I am using this:):)

 I really like having the micro and oven stacked.

 My sink is NICE AND BIG!!! My old double sink wasn't big enough for big pots etc.
 The morning room right off the kitchen.

I am very excited to have all this LIGHT at this house and plan to get more LIVE plants. The florist in me has craved having LIVE plants that were impossible to have at the old house in the woods. Gradually I will acquire more.

  14. Pinky,
    Your new kitchen is shaping up quite nicely, dear friend!!! Love, love, love the pottery above the cabinets and on the counter tops!!! That switchplate is to die for!!! Your placemats won my heart with their single Sunflower bloom!!! Pinky, I remember you telling us on your blog about purchasing the "big jar" for your new home about the same time you were packing up the attic items. Something about,"Now I hope I remember where I put this when we get to the new home." Hope this helps you locate the jar!!!

  15. Your new kitchen is absolutely gorgeous.. I love the black cabinets, and especially the glass front ones. Thanks for sharing.


  16. Your kitchen is beautiful, Pinky! Isn't it so much fun having all that above the cabinet space for more creative vignettes? I love that in my kitchen. Your pieces of pottery are lovely. Don't work too hard getting settled!
