This is turning out to be a novella rather than a simple old post,
so grab that wine glass or coffee cup and settle in for a bit.
My kitchen is truly the heart of my home. If you are a regular visitor to The Little Round Table, you are probably truly tired of seeing my kitchen! No??? Well then, a few pictures of parts of the kitchen you may not have noticed before.
Not my favorite cupboard/drawer, but let's get the nasty one out of the
way first .... we all have one of these. The JUNK drawer.
And the real life view
Isn't it amazing!
Where does all that stuff that migrates to the back of the drawer come from?
And a second bit of ewwwww, but I wouldn't be without one. My trash compactor. You might notice the design flaw ..... knobs that want to commit suicide by dropping into the contents of the compactor. I need to order another new knob.
No, we aren't looking inside .... you DO NOT want to see what's in there!
And just to get you oriented, a couple of oldies of the kitchen.
Some of my favorites:
Lazy Susan cupboards in either corner of the back wall.
They hold a ginormous amount of goodies.
Spice rack, one on either side of the range
If you face a Sub Zero with wood, you need to open the door each time you want ice. So I planned for an ice maker .... oh wow, it's a tough choice between my antique pine cupboard I mounted on the wall and the ice maker. It's pretty much a tie for first place in the my favorite cupboard poll.
An unlimited supply of ice ...... it's a favorite for sure!
And before we move on to today's tablescape .... this really is my favorite cupboard in the kitchen. It's an antique pine top to a china cabinet that I've had forever. It has held books, dishes, dolls, and all kinds of things over the years. It usually sits on an antique pine side table, but this is my favorite way that I've ever used it. Not huge, but it holds so much stuff and makes it easy to see what I need to stock up on at Costco.
Time to get back to The Little Round Table!
Today's tablescape is especially for my friend Daphne over at Tabletop Time. We are dish buddies as well as tablescaping fanatics and the oh so cute napkin rings on this table were a gift from D to me! The icing on the cake for this little table about the Cafe D'or on the sidewalks of Paris. Details at the end of this post.
