Pretty Kitchen

I admire an kitchen with style.  Some people really do have beautiful well designed kitchens that seem to gleam and shine. 

I have a small u shaped kitchen with regular counters, maple cabinets  and stainless steel appliances.  The fridge is visible from the living room and is a perfect place for some shine.

I like the shine of my mercury glass collection on top of the fridge.

Two weeks ago I found a cup at Urban Outfitters that I just could not walk away from!

I'm not usually a black and white fan but it matches my tea towels.

(they are no touch or use towels, I'm sure I'm not the only Mom with that rule!)

It's a glam little stove now.

A little fancy cookbook area.

The lesson here is the plain out of the box kitchen has a little pizazz now with the addition of some accessories.  I have never put an accessory in a kitchen before and now I wonder what took so long.



  1. Very pretty! Where do you keep the towel that actually gets used for drying hands?

  2. Everything looks great in your kitchen. You have a fabulous collection of Mercury glass. I would never have thought of putting it on top of my fridge. I passed up a Mercury glass pumpkin at HomeSense this week, now I wish I has bought it.
