Joining Amy today at Love Made My Home for Five-On-Friday Won't you stop by, if you have the time, and add your five to the mix?
I've been far too serious on Fridays lately, so I'm picking a lighter subject. I'm taking you on a quick tour of our kitchen and some of the rusty and white things in it.
1. The Portable Cabinet And White Pig:
The kitchen pig always holds court in the middle of the kitchen on a movable cabinet. The builder distressed and aged the wall cabinets a little too much. I plan to dry brush them, with a little white to lighten them, as soon as I learn how to do a better job of dry-brushing.
For now, I try to add as much white as possible to lighten up the kitchen since it's in the center of the house and doesn't have a window.
2. Messy Dark Corner:
3. Rusty White Stuff With Holes:
Seems all my old enamelware has holes. This flour bin is worn almost through on the bottom right.
It doesn't matter to me, I find it charming. I don't store flour in it anyway as these big flour bins were used back in the day when people made their bread at home and had to store their supplies for a long time between trips to town. If you opened the flour bin up, you would find cloth placemats rolled up inside instead of flour.
This rusty white enamelware washpan holds my kitchen towels. If you picked it up and looked below, you would see holes in the bottom of it too. I buy my dish towels at Sam's Club. I love these plain white, sackcloth-type dish towels.
4. Rusty Bottle Rack/White Lazy Susan:
5. White Preserved Roses:
I'm obsessed with these preserved roses with barely there color. I stick them inside things all over the kitchen. Here's a close up of a few of the roses. In the nest on the bottle rack...
In the old canning jar...
In the pottery with little white pumpkins...
Well, that's my quick tour of the kitchen stuff. If you noticed I still have some of the little twinkle lights up from Christmas, don't be shocked. Sometimes the lights stay out and stay lite (along with the pumpkins) all year long.
Thanks for stopping by!
