Farmhouse Style Kitchen

I am really loving the farmhouse style and thought it would be fun to decorate the kitchen with a farmhouse look.    When I think of farmhouse style......  cows,  sheep, chickens, pigs, all come to mind.

I started this section of the kitchen counter with a big longhorn cow photo.......

Doesn't that nest and bird on his horns make you smile!    I need lots of stuff to cook with in my farmhouse kitchen so,  I filled the set of mixing bowls that  H and I got as a wedding gift with eggs....

I used a vintage wooden drying rack as an easel for my cow photo.....

I have my Mason jar measuring spoons handy......

Vintage butter churns serve as a canister set.....

Mason jar measuring cups........and a big cookie jar completes this section of my farmhouse kitchen counter!

Many of you ask if we really cook in this kitchen and the answer is YES!   In fact,  H does  a lot of the cooking now that he is retired.    I decorate on the the counters but the island is always clutter free because that is where all the cooking is done!
  Be back soon to show you the rest of  my farmhouse style kitchen!

  1. Hi Penny! Oh, the longhorn painting is so sweet with the bird nest on it's horn. Now just forget about the farmhouse theme and give me those beautiful Butterprint Pyrex bowls! Oh, they are so pretty and it's my favorite pattern. I'm teasing of course and do have some Butterprint and use it in my sewing room. Love your pretty style.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  11. There's so much to love, here, where do I start? The cow steals some of the glory, but those mason jars measuring cups are super cool and I see a glimpse of a chandy, too. Would love to hang out in your kitchen and see it in action ;)

  12. You made me happy this evening with the beauty of your Farmhouse Style-I really like the soft hues and shades of blue and pink. I see Longhorns every day when I walk, so I think in reality those big old horns could hold a nest or maybe even more!
    Thank you so much for joining us today at Thoughts Of Home On Thursday!

  29. Those Mason jar measuring cups and spoons are the cutest kitchen utensils I've ever seen. I love the new look in your kitchen! Thanks so much for sharing at Inspiration Thursday!

  30. Love that picture Penny! Your mixing bowl set is very collectible. It's Pyrex and the Butterprint pattern is aqua is highly sought after. I have found three of the four. Hope to complete my set some day. You probably already know this, but you don't want to put them in the dishwasher. It damages their finish. Love farmhouse style as well and the butter churns are fabulous! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
    hugs,
