I love cooking during the fall and winter seasons, I guess we all do. Lots of comfort food, stews, soups, and casseroles. My poor honey wonders what happened when the summer rolls around.
Funny I used to lose weight in the summer months but not any more, nope, I manage to maintain my weight just fine even when I'm not hungry. Thank you and darn-it.
I poured my heart and soul into this kitchen. I knew just where every dish was going to go on paper. I am a magazine junky and I read that the kitchen planners divide a kitchen up into zones in order to organize it.
I think this kitchen has a very nice flow to it.
I used hand scraped hickory for the floors. The cabinets are made out of maple, painted and glazed, and the rest of the wood in the house is knotty alder. I don't know what the paint color is because this woman talked me into using a color she mixed. It's a light khaki color but the lesson here is don't ever do that, it is impossible to match.
I wonder what Maria over at Color Me Happy would say about these color tones?
Maybe I don't want to know.
Yes I left my Christmas decorations up all year. They're pretty.
I chose a sink from Kohler with the half divider, I love it, so many times I struggled with a pan too big in my old sink. I love the brown color too, I was tired of looking at stainless sinks and I was worried that I would scratch up a pretty white one.

View in the daytime.
My handy and oh so clever brush holder.
I've talked about it before, I NEED to do something with the top of this vent hood!!!! I can't decided what I want to do, I like so many things.
The two column like things pictured here are my pantries.
No too much of a look inside, they need a lot of cleaning and organizing. The one on the left stores all the food and the one on the right houses an assortment of dishes, coolers, platters, paper towels, etc.
Dishes my Mom made for me.
I like it in the chair in the kitchen.
So that's it. Pretty huh. Except for the vent hood, I must do something with that soon. Maybe before Thanksgiving.
See ya. :)
