Well, I have finally gotten my kitchen the way I want it...
You might remember that last summer we redid the kitchen but as you can see... no walls what ever, except right over here by my desk area!
.... Now I need to say that wall space is very limited in this house.. I love the double hung windows and the other design features that limit us but finding places to add wall adornment has to be a bit creative... for example, my coat of arms are proudly displayed on a strip of wall in the hall. And in this photo you can see my gallery, hahah such as it is of my P. Buckley Moss prints... which are right above my desk area where I can enjoy them most..Well, hubby finally got around this morning to finish off some items that have been gathering...
I love collecting transfer ware yet these three lovely pieces seemed to just be extras in my collection, so I was longing to incorporate them in the kitchen decor.
Imagine my huge delight when last autumn I ran across this commerative plate of Bunratty Castle in Ireland... Even though we didnt actually get to go there, we were very nearby and opted to dine at another castle , even though this one was listed on our itinerary, originally. I still love it as a constant reminder of our dream trip we took last spring!
This is a Christmas present sweet Amanda had made for me... just like one a friend had made and I have used many times in responding to Ann Voskamp's 1000 gifts posts... "eucaharisteo" means being thankful... I love the gift... and particularly its sentiment and reminder to be thankful in all things at all times!!!
I am loving the final product... To me the kitchen has come alive!!!!
