Scenes from a kitchen...

This little guy was 49 cents at Goodwill, he hopped in my cart one day to come home with me.
While taking photos for My World this Week, I was playing with my camera... going from Intelligent ISO to Macro to see what worked best in various lighting.

I keep the setting at Intelligent ISO most of the time as it is the only one that works well in low light.  As you can see, the kitchen is the one room in my house with a lot of color and whimsy.

Although my Study holds my collection of bears and bunnies and such.  What is left from a long ago love.  But once in awhile, a bear is found at Goodwill or while thrifting that tells me he or she needs a home.  No pictures of them here but someday...

I changed around the kitchen windowsill to make me smile this winter.
With all the dishes I own, these are the most often used.
A Goodwill find from long ago, he makes me smile.
I can never be accused of being too "matchy matchy".
My husband has his own corner of the kitchen counter.
Love yellow.  Love red.  Love cookbooks.
The top of the microwave.

Just stopped by to grab the widget...mother needs a new basic sewing machine. Drop in bobbin. :)

I keep looking at the yellow accents in your kitchen. The wood framing on my cabinets is a soft sage green/natural birch doors. I saw where they paired it with a fairly bright yellow on the window trim. I think I'm going to "steal" a bit of your look and paint the window molding over the sink and the kitchen door yellow. It should look good with my sunflower valances.

And I'm looking at my bookshelf. But it won't do red justice not like that wonderful cabinet you have. (soooo jealous!)

I love your kitchen. I love yellow, red, and cookbooks, too. My walls are yellow with hodge podge red accents. And I have things stuck places to make me smile, too. Thank you for sharing your pictures.

I love the splashes of yellow and red in your cheerful kitchen. Is that your husband's secret stash of cookies? =D

Amazing what a good find in a thrift shop does for the heart, eh? I found an old Revereware skillet like I long ago gave up...for only $6 and along with a nifty huge cast iron pot and lid AND handle, by Lodge (at $30 kind of spendy, but worth it to me)...I considered that a good day!! We are here in WA now, kind of "camping out" in daughter's house she hopes to soon sell, as they already bought another one. SO...need a few basics, with most of what I still have back in storage in NC. We are discussing maybe moving out here, though the other 2 kids and most of the grandkids are in NC...hard to have family scattered to the winds. But the one out here needs us now and till the children are school age, possibly. Hard to find good help these days...heh!!
