I love to cook. But, I also love to decorate. Sometimes the two can get in the way of each other. I love to have my pretties out so that I can admire them, but I try to keep the main parts of my counter space clear for food preparation. I wanted to share some pictures of my kitchen now that we have (mostly :)) moved in. My kitchen design involved lots of things, but one thing was mandatory. I had to have a place for the chop block and scales out of my Granny and Grandaddy's mom and pop store. My mother promised them to me a long time ago and I have anxiously awaited a kitchen where they could be front and center. The chop block even has the last roll of butcher paper that my Grandaddy used part of. I am very excited to have these family heirlooms in my home and I love sharing their history with my children, in-laws, and friends. There is a picture of my kitchen when the house was just finished in the previous post. I hope you enjoy the pictures. Thank you for stopping by!
This is a shelf made from heart-pine out of the old farmhouse.
It is above my stove and displays some of my ironstone collection.
Some more ironstone.
A little more ironstone...I know I have a problem :)
One of my prized possessions...the scale out of my Granny and Grandaddy's
mom and pop store.
Another of my prized possessions...the chop block from their store.
I would love to hear about any kitchen goodies you have that are near and dear to your heart.
