Show Us Where You Live Friday

Kelly over at Kelly's Korner is hosting Show Us Where You Live and today is the kitchen addition.
So here goes........

This is a view of the whole kitchen. We love fruit, because we farm and have lots of orchards around our place. One of the main things I love is my island. The plant on the island is a twin plant given to us when our twin boys were born three years ago.

I love Phaltzgraff and I am using the Delicious pattern. I have several of the pieces as well as the curtains and dishes.

I picked up these two (there are actually two) bar stools at a yard sale for $5 each! One of my ever finds.

My husband made this wall hanging. I have won the ribbons for fresh and canned things from the county fair. I have been competing since the year 2000. I love to can fruits and veggies!

I have two lazy susans. This is the one of the bottom. I use it for breads, bagels, crackers, tortillas, cereals, honey, syrups, the toaster and electric can opener.

I love my roll out cabinets. It is so nice not to have to get down in the floor and dig through you cabinets to find what you are looking for.

Here is the top lazy susan. It holds all of my spices, herbs, food colorings, etc.

This is one of our newest features in our kitchen and one of my VERY favorites It is a radio, a weather radio, a clock and a cd player. It also has a remote! We finally got it put up this week!

This is the top of my fridge. I love these metal canisters. I paid $.25 each for them at a yard sale.

I found this rug on clearance at Wal-Mart last August and fell in love with it. We love our apples here at the farm!

I know, not very appealing to the eye, but I love my roll out garbage cans! They are very nice and with twins one fills up too quickly!
Well, there you have it. That's our kitchen! Hope you enjoyed the tour! Blessings!!!

Your kitchen looks so much like my old kitchen, and it has the same features. I wonder if they were made by the same company.

Our old kitchen was soooo big, and I loved my island. Our kitchen now is smaller, and I don't have an island. Oh, how I miss it!

Wow I love you kitchen. I have pull our drawers and it is my favorite thing. I like Lazy susans too but I don't have a corner cabinet. I can't believe you have kept a plant alive in your house for 3 years. I am a plant killer for sure!

Nico said...

Your kitchen is awesome! I love all of your ribbons too :)

Wait a minute. You got TWO of those stools for $5 each? You have TWO lazy susans? You have a roll out for TWO garbage cans? This is all going on my list. LOL
Great extras!

I love your ribbons hanging up - you must be one talented lady! I tried canning peaches once - but I was too scared to ever eat them!

The house I grew up in had lazy susans built into the cabinets! How nice!
