Here are some shelves in my kitchen, the basket on the top shelf has recipie booklets and pamphlets and the basket on the lower shelf has all my kitchen towels (looks like it's time to do a load of laundry it's almost empty). The bowls I found at Mardens (a local salvage store) for $2.99 each and I loved them because they are the colors in my kitchen, the best part is they are useful and pretty! The jars have stuff in them that I use, like potpourri, whole cloves, baking powder, oatmeal, etc.
This is the top of the computer cabinet, the bowls I got at a yard sale earlier this summer and the basket has stoneware that I use when I make shortbread. The candle and berries I got at a yard sale several years ago, I plan to use it some day, maybe I should save it for when we have a power outage!
This angle shows the dining area, you can see where the shelves are in relation to the "kitchen" area. If you look out the window you can see the plywood covering the hole that I stepped thru earlier this summer, not sure if redoing the decking will be a fall or spring project??
This is may garlic keep and spoon rest, if you look closely you can see the
cob webs early Halloween decoration in the corner.
The kitchen sink window, the three pieces on the right are some of the first pieces that my hubby got me about 20 years ago (the utensil holder above is also one) I am sure he didn't realize what he was starting when he gave those to me! I keep my sugar in one, the candle holder is the one I found free at the Treasure area at our
dump Transfer station.
While this is not a piece of pottery or jar, this is one of my best yard sale finds. I have always wanted a Kitchen Aid but never could bring myself to spend almost $300 on one! Last summer the farmhouse down the road was having a yard sale and I knew there would be some very interesting things, the house had been in the family for over 100 years. Along with some garden tools I saw this and it was marked $50, it was in excellent shape, I talked them down to $40 (I checked to see if it worked) . It is less then 10 years old but in almost new condition, the lady that had it hasn't lived there for at least 5 years and I don't imagine she did much baking. I am glad I have my Kitchen Aid and I am really glad that I didn't spend $300 for it! Isn't she pretty!!
Everyone has to have at least one jar with change in it!
Here are the jars in my sewing room......
Deb see our truck that could deliver some rocks to your yard (just kidding, I don't think we could afford the gas to get to your house).
P.S. I hope I caught all my typos....
