Hey everyone! I hope this is going to be a beautiful week with lots more "Fall" weather and fun inspirations. Today I want to share my kitchen all dressed for Fall. Before I get started with that, I just want to report that I've had a very good week, and I'm preparing myself to start Round 2 of chemotherapy on Monday. I'm a bit apprehensive, because I don't know what the side-effects might be for me. I promise to do an update a day or two in, and let you know how things are going. I truly appreciate all of the kindnesses and prayers I've received from so many of you....you are simply the best! Now, enough about me! Let's take a look at what's been going on in my kitchen!
Just to the right of the open doorway going into the kitchen, is a spot that is so much fun to decorate. I used to have a chalkboard just under the shelf, but moved it to make way for my growing collection of aprons. I have several more, but like to switch them out by season and/or color.
The shelf is now holding a large blue mason jar vase filled with Japanese lantern picks and the drop cloth pumpkins that I made a couple of years ago.
I love creating a vignette for the island!
Most of the dishes are from Walmart, several years ago. The big clear jug is from the 80% off section of HL this past summer. The leafy stems & berry stems are from Michaels, last year.
I love using these dishes mixed with my FiestaWare.
This candle smells so good!
I seem to have an obsession with trays to contain things.....makes clean-up so much easier!
All of the turquoise items are from World Market and have been purchased over the last couple of years. To the left, I have filled a clear pumpkin cookie jar with oatmeal packets.....my new favorite breakfast!
This is to the left of the sink.
This was a free download, but I cannot remember where I got it....sorry!
I love filling these apothecary jars with seasonal goodies! The plate was from HL last year, and the owl was from World Market, last year.
This is my menu planning area with my cookbooks in the cupboard just to the left. This is my old laptop that I use just for Pinterest recipes.
I simply added the bright orange ribbon and a burlap flower to dress up the lampshade for Fall.
I updated the coffee/beverage station to include my favorite tea and some hot chocolate fixins'!
I like to keep things simple on our breakfast table lazy-susan, since we use it every day.
I put this together in just a quick few minutes using one of my chalkboard chargers (I made those several years ago) and some greenery & berries I had on hand. This is hanging just above my sink.
I'm still lovin' my pompom wreath that I made last year, and it's hanging in exactly the same spot on the pantry door.
Hope you enjoyed the Fall touches in my kitchen. They certainly do make me smile. Thanks so much for stopping by.....you are always welcome here!
I often party with these lovely bloggers:
