My KitChen of Many FacEs

MY kitchen has undergone many accessory and curtain changes in the past couple of years.  I love roosters, I have to say, they are cute and just warm up a space.  But On the flip side, I feel I can over do it with them.  I will show you some Accessory changes I have made, and my current state of kitchen.  I do Love my dining area in the Spring and Summer time.  Our window acts as the perfect back drop for color.  Very green and plush with all the Woods behind our home.  Makes for a lot of work come Fall and Spring, but I still Love it!
Look even rooster valances...no longer with me!

 
As you can see these roosters have been everywhich way and place in my kitchen

Now for the current state.........I have brought in more cobalt blue, I have always loved that color and thought with our Old World family room which also has blue scattered about, this would tie the rooms together nicely.
I added this cobalt blue plate, as you can see we are getting read to cook dinner....Pasta night!

 
I keep my dish soap in a decorative bottle

My first and only cloche

 
New pottery set my Father in law recently brought for us, from a potter in Upstate New York

 
Really loving Cobalt blue


 My French candy sign from Ballard designs....I did splurge however it was on sale!
Fabulous Pasta dish my husband actually cooked for my Birthday!

 
I spy with my little eye, yes, another yellow painted item I am still counting how many things I used this color on..

Thought I would make a home made arrangement from my Garden and woods instead of buying more fresh flowers this week

And here is the current state of mind for the kitchen, with once again valance changes..

You should see the word LINKS and your blog if not you do not have links set up and whenever you sign up to follow someone and they click on you they have no way of getting to your blog. If you have it set up--I just missed you and I am very sorry, I TRY to follow every one who follows me.
