Heart of The Home and a Winner!

Welcome to my kitchen ~ it is indeed the heart of our home.

My kitchen is not modern. It's homey and cozy, but it means business. I have a professional stove, and lots of pots, pans, and utensils at the ready. Form comes first and style follows.

Spices and herbs are readily available.

Dishes are stored in open shelves to make it easy and accessible to "plate" a dish.

There are stainless and copper pots and pans ready to be used.

There are aprons ready to grab and baskets filled with potatoes, onions and garlic.

There is a beamed ceiling and painted cabinets. There are baskets and collections of pottery.

There is an old hutch filled with loved pieces of pottery, tole, miniatures and Beatrix Potter figurines. It's the cozy and comfy heart of our home, filled with things we love, and things that work for us. Thank you for visiting! Please visit Sheila at Note Songs for her Heart of the Home Party and Sue at It's a Very Cherry World for Rednesday.

And now .... big drum roll ... the winner of last week's give away is ... Elizabeth and Gary of Home is Where The Heart Is. Congratulations!! Send me an email so that I can get your address. Thank you all for participating!! If you didn't win, don't fret ... I'll have many more giveaways!!
