So from the dining area you enter the
kitchen, family room and back porch.
Coming as soon as I save my pennies,
a new corner sofa and a complete rearrange to
allow additional seating here.
The yellow cupboard
holds additional kitchenware.
Notice the church board calendar
on the right wall.
Many of you have commented on it before.
Also spot the Alice in Wonderland Door.
My Italian Vietri Cucina Dishes
Love these - I traded several days of
organizing labor for these many year ago
and have never regretted it.
Some day I hope I can afford serving ware.
With each serving piece being nearly $100.00 and up,
I'm not holding my breath.
That cart used to hold my Dad's jigsaw in his workshop.
After a thorough cleaning,
I left it in it's original condition,
chipped paint and all.
The round basket above the spices holds
a very old piece of a house Hannah found
in an abandoned lot in NYC.
She knew I would love it, and squirreled it away in
her suitcase for me.
Guess who - another photo bomb from Howie.
and a bit of Justice's butt.
She's drinking water I keep on the
trolley shelf, so she can find it.
The small cupboard to the left of the pantry door
was once on a boat, and holds more spices.
The double stacked doors hold the
laundry chute, and more pantry space.
The antique yellow-ware lidded crock
holds the dog treats
and Howie knows the sound
from rooms away!
On toward the porch
The old man painting I bought
for my Dad for $3.00 when I was eight years old.
He made the frame
from barn wood he found on our land.
The bakers table in front of the shutters
is very unique and
has swing out seats and
cutting boards tucked in.
This old kitchen cupboard holds bar glasses and
party goods for outdoor entertaining.
So that's the first floor except
for powder room and laundry.
Stay tuned for upstairs coming soon.
