Home is where the KITCHEN is

This week the linking party at Kelly's Korner is focusing on our kitchens. I've been enjoying snooping on all the wonderful ones already posted. Wow!!! It seems as if designers have entered homes all across America (and beyond) to insure that the kitchen is the heart of the home.

We remodeled ours in 2001 in memory of our son. He loved oak furniture so we had our cabinets custom built in oak. I realize that many think it is outdated. But it touches my heart.

Here is the view from the dining room. (We tore a wall down to make our living, dining, kitchen more of an open concept).

The island was added a bit later and I wish I had made it smaller. The hutch was a find from JCPenney on closeout for $100. I have some of my grandmother's blue hobnail dishes displayed there in the summer months. 

The one area that is important--the coffee center! I love my Bunn maker.

Around the kitchen there are some accessories above the cabinets and of course the TV that helps me get through preparing dinner!

So that is the tour of my heart!


  1. I really like your hutch with your grandma's dishes. What a find!

  2. Thank you for responding! My first!!!!
