Oh I am such a tease! I know you all must be thinking “Just show us the darn kitchen already!!!”
It’s coming. Just few more projects to wrap up. Here’s an area that’s done for now.
This was my original inspiration. You have to go visit Joan to see her entire kitchen.
The brick that begins here…
…wraps all the way around to the kitchen. It was kind of a black hole.
So I lightened things up a bit and added a bit of shimmer. I hope to find a big heavily carved gold frame for my $2 painting. It will come….
I like to keep my favorite spices close at hand in tiny antique doll dishes and spoons that belonged to Grandma Jingles.
French wooden spoons in a champagne bucket? Mais oui! Eiffel tower scissors are ready at a moments notice to clip the cooking twine to sew up a baked chicken ala Julia. Olive oil makes a splash on a regular basis in my kitchen. They all sit on a marble turntable I found at Goodwill for $2.
Mr. Décor’s favorite spice is pepper. He LOVES it! I bought him this pepper mill for our first Christmas together as newlyweds while living in Greece. If you look closely it says “PEPER”. Even misspelled the guarantee must still be good because 17 years later it still works like a charm.
Mr. Décor would like to get a gas stove. I am ALL for that. He’s willing to buy just any ole thing. But me….
I’d rather save my pennies for a few years and get something special. More copper pots too please! Know what else I like in my kitchen? Photo bombing kids and dogs.
Did any eagle eyes spy a sneak peek of something? The full reveal in all its Christmas splendor is Friday.
