Romancing the Kitchen

You may remember that I packed up all the cupcake decor in the kitchen and started a new theme....Rose Garden Kitchen

I wanted to show you some more of the progress that we are making on the mini redo!
I had a beautiful piece of stained glass  in the dining room several years ago.......then I moved it to the guest bedroom for a couple of years......and now I have it hung in the kitchen window.  I think I love it the best here!  

  We took out the long table that was in front of the window ( there is a before picture further down in the post)  Now, there is a small table and a vintage ladder in it's place. 
Our daughter bought me this stained glass window a few years ago for Christmas....what a treasure!
We moved the "strainer" light from the end of the counter and hung it to the right of the hoosier.

I have some vintage linens hung on the ladder....I will hang bundles of roses on the ladder to dry when they bloom this summer.

The white ceramic cats were relocated from the family room to the kitchen.

I have been shopping the house to do my mini redo......nothing is new so far!
Here you can see the long table in front of the window that we moved out...and you can see where the hanging strainer light was hung  before (at the end of the kitchen counter).
I am really loving the fresh new look in the kitchen.   The kitchen table also was changed out.....can't wait to show the new table!  I'll be back to show you more progress on our kitchen mini redo!  See you soon!

  2. Hi Penny, Your kitchen is adorable . . . it is so girlie and pretty. My poor husband would be like a bull in a china cabinet if I did that to our kitchen, so I'll just come by and admire yours.
    Come over and help me celebrate my second year blogging anniversary :)
    Keep Smiling
    Your blogging sister, Connie :)

  14. Hi Penny. Your kitchen is dreamy. Very romantic, indeed. I'd love it if you'd share it at Every Room In The House, my new monthly blog party at A Joyful Cottage. We party at a different room every month, and this month is The Kitchen. Here's the link: http://www.ajoyfulcottage.com/2014/01/every-room-in-house-party-1.html

  15. Penny!! OMG!! That stained glass piece is to die for and you know that that is so my style!! Drop dead gorgeous!!! Love the new arrangement in this corner. It looks like you have more room.... I so envy that you can change pieces up and put things in storage and bring them back out and use them at a later date. Love the new theme. looks stunning!

    Have you been shopping any after Christmas sales? i have been going a bit crazy with that but there seems to be a lot that I like this year out there. I think it is also my therapy since I had been feeling so down in the dumps that past few weeks......

    Hugs,
    Deb
