When we bought our house I was horrified by the 30 year old appliances in the kitchen which are no end of trouble. And the very 80s oak cabinets and framing all over the place make me shudder on a daily basis. Oh and the backward installed kitchen faucet.
However, we have worked, I think, very well with some of these features and I do love the the strangeness of our kitchen.
Our giant heat loss window looks out over our small deck and right into the the church next door. They open their blinds on Sunday mornings and it gives me an evil chuckle if we've had a recent party as the out of doors is usually quite littered with beer cans and plastic cups from beer pong.
The vintage aprons were inspired by my great grandmother's christmas apron. I felt very bad having it and not using it or having a proper place to hang it. And then I picked up a couple here and there and there was this HUGE window to liven up.
My mom found these lovely poppies in some thrift store I believe. It doesn't match her decor but fit in just perfectly with our vintage green and orange kitchen.
Thank Punky & Me for presenting My Place and Yours and also where you can find all the other fun kitchens. The theme came from these lovelies Yardage Girl and Thrift Nest Sew.
