My Kitchen - Part 1

I thought I'd do a little segment on here - A Few of My Favorite Things - and go through some of the bigger rooms in my house.  Since my house is constantly evolving - things are different than the last time I posted.  Please enjoy my kitchen.

It's eclectic to say the least.  I have a lot of fun finds in here all mixed and matched together.  I have collections of old bowls, chickens, and old signs.  I love my kitchen.


My collection of hands - one is an old glove form & the other is giving an OK sign.  The chicken was drawn by Abbie - it's fabulous isn't it!


These are above my pantry.  They came from my Mom - and I believe from my Grandma.  I love them - they are little chalk figurines with hooks on them.  They are great!


This is above the fridge.  I found the giant fork & spoon & spray painted them a textured silver.  They are fabulous & so is that old chicken cookie jar & those orange tins!


Here are some old signs I have collected.  The fifth street carries on my collection of 5s - I don't know why I collect 5s, but I do.  The R is an old movie sign letter & the Small Change came from TJ Maxx.  The old jars are really cool up close & personal.


I just got this Oleo sign from my Mom.  It cracks me up.  I also am a big fan of small lights around my house so this beauty adorns my counter top.

My island post will come as Part 2 - it deserved it's own post!

  12. I think my favorite is the "Don't Spit on the Floor" sign - AWESOME! I love when people decorate above their cabinets. My parents always did that. Our kitchen was lined with antique tins and items. I love again, all the bright colors and those little veggie faces are too cute!

  15. Annie-My old kitchen used to be the color of the cookie jar and tins that you have above your fridge and I have a pair of salt and pepper shakers that would match them perfectly! I got them at one of the antique shops in Shelbyville. You must have them since my decor has change and I no longer have a place for them! I am bringing them by your house next time we are in town!
