Art in the kitchen

I think this is called "Ask, Seek, Knock"

One of things I started to notice (long ago) about some European kitchens was the use of "real art" on their walls.


When we moved to this house, I decided to hang one of my favorite art prints in the kitchen right along with vintage items and the Rooster "stuff".  I've enjoyed it for years now...

Note:  Someone had asked about the vintage potholders.  I found a few through the years at thrift stores but I think those displayed were the potholders my friend, Linda, gave me when she found out I collected them.  She and I have been trading thrifted treasures since we met in front of the book section of a Goodwill store.  :)

One of my favorite verses! My mother wrote this on my birthday card a few weeks before I met the man who would be my husband for 35 years......

Hey Brenda,

I am enjoying your music - especially the Wedding Song...that was sung at our wedding 23 years ago, it was an older song then even but I have always loved that song!

your art is perfect for your kitchen. Those prints are gorgeous. Oh I used my new China for company last night- it felt elegant. company was a male so he didn't notice. He did like the food through. LOL
