Kitchen Revamp: Part IV

I'm not sure this post should be titled "Part IV." It feels more like 3.5, since it's not a very large or significant post. But here's the last of the kitchen revamp photos, until I get the small window curtain (off camera in this photo stage right) figured out. It's just got me stumped, because no matter how I make it, it looks, for lack of a better word, "stupid." That's just me and sewing. Things go that way.

This is the wall of the kitchen opposite the sink area. My brother-in-law Rusty installed my microwave above the range, for which I am eternally grateful. A countertop microwave would have hogged up way to much work space.

I love the trivets above the stove, which were from my Great Aunt Elizabeth's kitchen. The smallest one is only 2 1/2 inches across, so it's very cute. Not very practical, but cute.

You've already met these guys, to the point I was too lazy to take fresh close-ups of them. My Czech ceramic oatmeal container and cream pitcher. I love the art deco style:

I know silk flowers are about as out as shiny brass light fixtures, but I couldn't help myself, and the top of the fridge needed something:

A final kitchen roundup is in the near future, but I'll be scarce on the blog this week. Then I'll be back with some new projects to tackle. I'll see everybody soon!

  1. I am envious of your microwave set-up. And sympathetic to your sewing woes. Glad to see your kitchen coming together so nicely. Looking forward to your next post. I, too, am having trouble posting more often. Just too much going on.
