Kitchen tour

This is my first link party, I am joining house in the roses to show off my kitchen. It is not an up to date expensive kitchen in fact except for a few updates it is over 20 years old. The first is my cupboards I chose these when we were building the house about 23 years ago. I love them more every day.
we have added the tv over the stove it fits nicely in the little cupboard. My husband is trying to get me to buy a new stove but no way I love this stove. It has cast iron burners.
 across from the stove is where I do my blogging and eating. We added this bar a few years ago. From here it goes into a family room that has a table for when a couple of friends come over for cards.
 Some of the things that are under the cupboards. I did not drink all the wine, but I collect corks so everyone helps. the little draws are from an old sewing machine all fixed up. Back splash is recycled tin ceiling.
 This light you have seen before it is my find from a yard sale. I love my shutters!
 I have a lot of space over the cupboards. My husband made the little house that lights up from a yard sale find wooden box. The plate my daughter did in preschool when we were building the house. This is her version of the house it is suppose to be a salt box.
 This is my favorite part of the kitchen. We removed the table when we put the bar in and put a love seat here. It over looks our gardens and the woods behind our house. no matter who comes to visit they always end up here, including the cat.
 And behind my sofa is my feather tree. It is really homey and comfy.
Thank you for your visit and I hope you enjoyed the tour. I can't wait to read your comments.

I love that shade of blue! Everything looks so perfect! I'd die before showing anyone my kitchen in full. Yes, it's that bad! So many ideas in our heads - just waiting for the right time (she says after 10 years...)

Thanks for the tour. I wish that I could see out the windows and enjoy the view. I love the little feather tree. I have two little christmas trees that I still need to decorate. I just didn't have any ambition today. I love the pictures. I think it is interesting to see where people do their blog. I do mine in the basement and I won't be taking any pics anytime soon. what a mess. Have a good week.

What a beautifully warm and cozy home! Very inviting too! Thanks for sharing!

Your little loveseat area is perfect. If that was in my house, I would just curl up there and read or hook all day. But then we would have any meals I guess!

My what a lovely kitchen you have, so warm and inviting. I love the color of your cabinets and that darling little house your hubby made. What a perfect little hooking nook your love seat area makes. Thank you for the tour.

Very nice! I like your statement that you love your cupboards more every day. A decorator friend of mine just said recently that we have to find our own style. I think your style is very charming, and the whole look of your kitchen is warm and inviting.

And I like the idea of the love seat in the kitchen! It just says 'welcome' to me!

I just love your country kitchen. I feel as though I could sit down and have a cup of hot tea and stay all day. So very inviting and warm.
