Today I'd like to share with you a bit more of my kitchen.
For my birthday I received this delightful
homemade sign from my daughters.
It really fit nicely and brightened that empty space above
the kitchen sink.
Yes, my kitchen sink looks pretty much the same
as it usually does. With a mixture
of dirty glasses and tea strainers scattered about it.
Here is the lovely view from my kitchen window.
The fall colours are starting to deepen and the leaves are coming off the trees.
It's hard to see in the picture,
but there is mist rising from the water.
It's been below freezing for a few mornings and
the frost is quite lovely.
With the coolness I have been drinking more tea.
I had also realized that my tea cupboard
was in need of some tidying up.
I found a 2x6 board in the yard and
tucked that in the second shelf under some doilies.
I thought it would help to be able to the tea pots better.
Then I also moved all the tea cups to the top shelf.
This is the hutch that stands in my kitchen and I love it!
It is where I keep my tea things as I use them a lot.
Then the cupboard at the bottom is where I store my flour and sugar.
The cookbooks are at hand when they're needed.
Plus I received a lovely new
proofing basket for my birthday.
Just need to wake up my sourdough starter
and try it out.
I keep my cast iron griddles against the hutch to.
They are pretty and easy to get to when I need them.
I put up a command non marking hook for
some of our aprons.
With organizing the tea pots,
I thought I should contain some of the tea strainers.
Now they have their own little basket
that I found in my crafting room.
I pulled out a little pot that my children
brought me one day.
It holds the tea spoons nicely.
There was some tea in the cupboard with the tea cups....
but here is my tea cupboard
where I keep the rest of our tea and
the cookie jars. :)
So all in all.... I kind of have a tea station.
I thought about doing it all on the hutch with the kettle and all.
Then I thought it would function a bit better this way for the needs of my family.
The kettle is always on the counter close to the tea...
and then the teapots and cups are all in one place to.
So....if any of you would love to come for a cup of tea?
You would be most welcome to come and pick out
a tea pot and a cup to use.
Thank you so much for dropping by!
Love and Prayers,
