The Tour Part 4: Kitchen & Dining

Here we are in the kitchen and dining area.

I'm still figuring this space out. It's very different from all of my previous kitchens. The cabinet space is fair, but there was no corner for my corner china cabinet. So the cabinet AND all of my china (+ some) is in storage. That makes me a little sad, but maybe it means that one of these days I'll finally get that bigger--non-corner--antique china cabinet that I've been wanting:)
I do like the way the room is open, it has a nice feel to it. And great tile, too! I love the tile.

I'm loving having the microwave/vent hood combo again. I missed that in my previous house.

We already have our art gallery going again. The fridge is my kiddos' fave place to hang their colored pictures and I do love them! Right now the trend with Mr. B is apple trees~I've got a whole orchard almost:) Oh, and that door beside the fridge is my pantry--very handy!

The cabinets have a little display space above them where I have put my few pieces of flow blue and also some other blue and white pieces.

Although it's not that attractive, I guess, I do have my bookshelves full of cookbooks in the dining area. One of these days maybe I'll have that huge walk-in pantry and can tuck them away. I need them handy for inspiration though, so it works for me.

I was really happy with the way my blue & white plates turned out in here. Those wonderful little plates have been with me since our first house (3 houses ago) and are so versatile. They really warm up a space and make it feel *homey*. Thanks for touring the kitchen. If you were here, I'd offer you some cookies!

It's funny how different people like different things...I couldn't wait to NOT have the microwave over my stove! Funny! Always love the blue plates...
