Kitchen pics and 56!

Somebody, and I think it was Linda, commented on my kitchen curtains awhile back.  I promised to show a picture of more than just a sliver of them.  While I'm at it, I thought I would show y'all some of the other things in the kitchen.  Just FYI...my decorating is an ongoing thing because of my "unstable personality", as my sister calls it!  So...anyhow...


Here are the curtains.  This window is one of my favorites.  It is where I watch deer play out in the field.  It is also a favorite of the barn cats!  Can you see Fiona giving me that look?  That's the look that says, "If you don't come feed us soon, I will be forced to claw your eyeballs out...Old Lady!".  LoL  Actually, she is a wonderful hunter and I try to keep her happy because...well...she's a killer!

So back to the curtains...I don't like normal(go figure) so I made these with the red on the bottom and the yellow cherry valances make me happy.  The window over the sink is the opposite.  Yellow on bottom - red on top.  I don't know what it is about my kitchen but all of my houseplants love to hang out in there. 


This is the corner next to that big window. It's a bit cluttered at the moment but I will get around to doing something about that in a day or two.  See that big white sign? I'm not sure it will get to live there forever but I love it. My daughter gave it to me for my birthday.  Yes...friends...I had a birthday on Sunday.  56!!!  Man, I know it was just a couple of weeks ago, I was turning 21!  Has it really been that long?  It certainly doesn't feel like it...that is until I get out of bed!  Then I feel every year and every ache and pain that goes with them!  Aren't those flowers just lovely?  My precious granddaughter gave those to me.


Those two girls always spoil me on my b'day.  I always say I don't want or need anything but I know it doesn't matter what I say, they are going to go overboard every year! 


A few years back, we remodeled this big ole eat-in kitchen and we decided to removed some of the cabinet doors, leaving open shelves.  This little nook was that aggravating, too small cabinet, that I am too short to use, that is above the stove.  I never have understood putting cabinets over the stove.  Anyhow, I use it to put some pretties on.  Right now, it isn't much but the seasons are changing and this is one of my favorite little spots to put a few cute Fall and Winter decorations.


This counter was home to our microwave but the poor old thing quit working and I decided not to replace it right away.  I'm not much on using one because I am naturally suspicious and believe "nuking" anything is unhealthy and possibly governmental population control(see above reference to unstable personality).  Just kidding...maybe...either way, I don't like microwaved food.  Most of the time the only thing I used the blasted thing for was to heat up coffee(nasty) or make that awful popcorn.  Anyhow, I got off on a bunny trail, didn't I.  So back to the counter.  It isn't big enough for anything else so I put this stuff there.  See that egg.  That is one of those itsy-bitsy eggs from my granddaughter's itsy-bitsy chickens.  I still get the biggest laugh when I find one.  Oh!  I found out that plant is actually an Easter cactus rather than a Christmas cactus.  As best I can figure, the only difference is in the blooms. 

If you are still hanging on after all this crazy rambling...well, bless your heart.  I sure do appreciate it! 

Grace & Peace,
Pam

  1. Happy belated birthday! (Oh, and happy fiscal New Year!) Thanks for welcoming us into your home, Pam. I love the combination of yellow and red … reminds me of my home state of New Mexico! Giggling about the microwave. Ours died recently and we're struggling to adapt to the new one's higher wattage(?). My Hubby can't (won't) use the power selector, and wound up exploding a container of brown gravy last night. Yep, I 'let' him clean up. :)

    1. I am a firm believer that men should not be left unattended in the kitchen. I don't let mine do anything but get a drink of water! Thanks for the birthday wishes.

      Grace & Peace,

  2. YAY!!! PHOTOS!!!! I love, love, love your curtains--apologies for the exclamation points, but truly, you have me smiling especially with the "unstable personality" comment you made. I think we must be long lost cousins or sisters, smiles & giggles. I know what I like and that's that--or as my husband says, "Linda, you are just weird."

    Happy belated birthday new friend. May the year bring you much happiness.

    I am still "smarting" over Myra's comment to you about her husband and the exploding gravy--been there and done that (not me, the guys, just saying). lol

  4. Oh I love the cheerful way you have decorated your kitchen. It's pretty! I wonder about using a microwave over too. Like you, I use it for warming things up and occasionally thawing something. Now you've really got me worried. :) just kidding. :)
