Our Kitchen And Its Kitty

It’s been a L-O-N-G time since I’ve participated in a Mama Kat’s Writer’s Workshop, but this week, one of the prompts sounded like it would be fun:

3.) Show us your kitchen!

Those of you who know me well, know that I don’t cook (other than an occasional grilled cheese sandwich). So our small kitchen suits me fine. Here’s a little tour, beginning with the “breakfast nook” area.

I apologize for the lighting in these photos. I wasn’t at home to take them yesterday, and found it difficult to get good pictures last night.

Here’s another view of that same area. (Before I took the picture, I should have lined that chair up better with the design in the rug.)


The wooden ice box beyond the table and chairs belonged to my aunt and uncle. You can’t tell from the picture, but that’s Pioneer Woman’s cookbook on top. Although the shelf above the ice box appears old, it was purchased at a craft show a few years ago.

This basket is old, and the stuffed kitty was also purchased at a craft show.

This is the doorway where I was standing when I took the second picture. Back when I was sewing, (instead of blogging), I made the piggy on the second shelf from a cloth bag that once contained smoked sausage links.


Many years ago (pre-blogging), I also made the little doll (and her flag) that’s resting on this tray. Her legs are made of buttons strung together.

Here’s the “business” area of the kitchen. (We need to replace a light bulb, and I need to recycle the empty fish oil bottle that’s in the sink.)  My friend, Doris, found the metal stars years ago and thought they’d be a nice addition to our kitchen. I agree.


And that completes the tour of our kitchen.  Oops! I almost forgot the busiest corner in the entire room. (Speaking of stuffed kitties.)
