I love all the color in my kitchen. It looks a little like a 1940s kitchen with modern appliances (and the paint chipping on the cabinets makes it look more authentic). :)
In preparation for eventual garden (and farmer's market) produce, I made plenty of room on the antique sewing machine base, which has been turned into a table.
I love the chef bottle (probably meant to hold olive oil?), he was a recent Goodwill find that adds some whimsy... even if he is not a vintage look like the rest.
I stopped by the antique mall one day a couple weeks ago, it is near my doctor's office and I do enjoy perusing the various displays. The red tray was a find for only a dollar!
I moved the basket where I keep some of my cookbooks to the vintage yellow cart where the Crockpot once resided. It is now in the garage since I don't use it often in warmer weather (well, it was warm!).
The top of the frig remained the same but it fits in nicely.
My other kitchen decoration, the kitchen Supervisor.
She is allowed on the little kitchen island as part of her Queendom... but not on the kitchen counters... as I rarely prepare food on the island.
Things are getting interesting here. Christopher is in his last week of classes and preparing for finals week. I had a text when I awoke this morning, written from a McDonald's at 1:30 this morning... asking for a telephone call to make certain he wakes up for his first class.
He will live here for most of finals week so I can drive him in to campus for early morning finals (parking places are very hard to find). Then he will move home (if they find someone to to sublet their apartment) until mid-May when he can move into Married Student Housing. He graduates in December.
He and Mrs. Christopher will be living around the corner from where hubby and I set up housekeeping as newly marrieds when he was in graduate school. :)
I have an appointment with the retinal specialist today, which tends to knock me out for the remainder of the day. But tomorrow I start filling the freezer with cupcakes and other goodies.
That is just the beginning. I wonder of Miss Victoria makes a good Sous-Chef?
