Some of my favorite posts by bloggers is when they give a glimpse into their real life. I like to see their home, the kitchen, their pets! Sometimes you feel like you really know these people!
Here is a glimpse into our home at 179...at least the kitchen portion. You don't need to see the rest!
I found this old door knocker in the cellar. My grandfather was in the Navy and I'm sure he picked this up some where with the intention of putting it on the door but never did.
This is my sweet little kitchen. Years ago my dad and I completely renovated the whole thing. We tore out all the drywall, the floors and the ceiling. We even removed a window which was above the stove. I wish I had a wee bit more natural light coming into the kitchen but I like how accessible everything is.
This is the light in my kitchen at sunset. I love being in the kitchen at this time of day. I didn't edit this photo, the light really is this warm golden color. It makes me happy.
Boyd is always right near me when I'm in the kitchen. In the first picture of the kitchen you can see him sitting on the stand near the fridge. He just sits there and watches me. What a baaaaby.
Tickles is never too far either. I tried to have a "photo shoot" with him last night and Boyd got so jealous he came over and sat in front of the camera.
I have a lot of cookbooks. I recently went through and cleaned out all the books that I don't use and I still ended up with 4 shelves of them! Check out those hefty binders on the bottom shelf, that is how I organize my recipes from blogs and magazines. I'm a little obsessed with them. I was keeping all of this on an old ratty WalMart bookcase. Then we found this beauty at the Pot Luck Shop in Hallowell. This is made from recycled barn wood from Wayne. I absolutely adore this.
Thanks for coming over! I hope you enjoyed the tour!!
