Cottage Kitchen…..

Thank you all for your wonderful wishes and kind, sweet words yesterday…our anniversary.  We had a wonderful day!

We are not quite finished with the kitchen….the farmhouse sink is being put in THIS WEEK!  Woohoo! And we have some other ‘to-do’s’ in there.  Still looking for a fabulous light fixture. But here it is currently….links to a projects from this room that we’ve shared in the past are listed at the bottom of the post.

Our kitchen has always been a hard room to make work….it is so small. Our home is an authentic Acadian Cottage…..a French cottage. Kitchens were very small because shopping was done daily and Europeans are really good at making whatever they have work. :) Love that. But it has always been a frustration for us and for me, especially…because I love to cook. We are always trying to get creative to see how we can create more space in this room.

We are often asked where to find the vintage French cup/glass drying rack on our island.

You can find one HERE.

You can find several choices of different ones HERE.

    Oh, I LOVE your kitchen! You want to see small-our kitchen is probably half the size of yours! You’ve really made great use of your space-very inviting! :)

    I absolutely love your kitchen! You have made such great use of your space, and it looks as efficient as a restaurant kitchen, but so homey and warm and cozy. I love all your signs, quotes, etc,. I am such of a fan of the written word, and yours are so well done. And those rice bowls are so pretty!!

    That’s a ‘small’ kitchen? To me, that is a medium to decent sized kitchen…. or perhaps it’s the camera lens… Gorgeous nonetheless, I love what you’ve done with it, you have great taste!
