My Favorite Room

It feels like forever since I last posted. I have been so busy doing nothing if that makes sense. I feel like I could just curl up on the sofa for a couple of days and watch some movies. I'm ready for some snow or Spring I hate the in between. I'm not much for cold weather but love a good snow. Unfortunately we haven't seen anything here but cold weather. I wish I had pretty snow pictures to share but instead here are some pictures of my favorite room.

MY KITCHEN

    

The kitchen is divided by this long counter with shelves over head. The other side is the eating area. I like the counter space but wish the kitchen were more open. The cooking area can get small real quick when you have more than one person in it. 

      

This is the eating area. I love the big bay window and if you look closely you can see Ms. Pretty in her favorite spot. This table is one of my favorite things also. I wanted this style table so bad but couldn't afford a fancy one. My husband saved money until he could buy this table for me from Hill's Department Store. That was over 13 years a go. It means so much to me because I wanted it and he bought it. I had chairs to match but over time they broke and I bought these white and painted them black. When I look at this table I see many years of memories and that makes it worth more than we ever paid for it. I find myself wanting to go back to more simpler times now I want things that have meaning. Thanks for stopping by and looking at my kitchen.

I so love your kitchen... That is my favorite room in my home too!
I would love to curl up on the sofa and watch a good "chick flick" without any interuptions...that would be pure utopia!
You and I are in sync right now...I wonder how many more are feeling the same way!

I love your kitchen too, Donna! It looks so cheerful and country! Your table with the black chairs is great! I can understand the sentimental value behind it too. I'm the same way!

And that bay window is so neat! I love the ledge or seat in it!

I emailed you!
Have a great evening!

Hugs,
Tammy
