My Favorite Space

Happy Thursday to all! 
If you have been to my blog more than a few times, then you have seen my kitchen.  It was completely renovated 18 months ago and I enjoy spending time in it so very much.
We rarely eat out, so my kitchen is used continuously.  



I love to bake and make a huge variety of main dishes for our Supper meal.  I have always believed that one of the most important things a family can do together is sit down to a proper evening meal and eat together.  The time spent chatting and filling our tummies is precious time.  Kids will grow up and duplicate that in their own homes, with their own kiddos.  My two have done exactly that, now  how special is that?!  It's only my husband and I left at home now, but we still do this.




Of all the areas that I enjoy in my kitchen, the area below is probably my favorite area.

I love to cook, but it runs a close second to my very most favorite and that is decorating.


I am joining Sarah over at Modern Country Style, have a look at the wonderful kitchens there today.

Have a fabulous day!!!

Cindy

Hi gorgeous,

I REALLY like the way you have that extra layer of high up glazed cupboards. I think I might try and go for something like that if I had to replan our kitchen one day. It looks so good and I bet they're super-useful too!

I love your kitchen, Cindy. It looks so homely. Just the kind of place grandchildren would love to come round and stand in!!

I can see why it's your favorite room. I am so impressed that you lived through a complete reno. I'm not sure I would be up for that...but the end result is certainly worth it. LOVE your hardware. Well done!
