Hosted by Beth at I should be folding laundry.
Mister and I have been married over 31 years.
The kitchen I have has been my kitchen for almost 25 years. Early in our married life, my PaPaw and my Diddy (that's Daddy to those of you north of the Mason/Dixon line and west of the Mississipi River) did a lot of wood working in PaPaw's shed. So many of the things I have in my kitchen were made by their hands. And because of that, they will be a part of my kitchen until .....
Coffee cup rack made by PaPaw and Diddy
and the napkin holder. The spoon holder was my Grandmother's.
Many, many years back I found some shelves in a catalog. I cut the picture out and sent it to my Diddy. Toldhim how many I wanted and POOF! I had my shelves. I still use them for all my ceramic bowls, which all functional and not just for show. I love pottery.
Spice rack made by them.
You know how you just sort of start collecting things. Well, somehow we started collecting shot glasses. I found that they were great for saving little things like shells or some sand from a beach.....that kind of thing. I've always wanted a stained glass window in my kitchen. Instead of going that route, my Mister made me a shelf top put in the window and it gives the same effect as a stained glass. We get the afternoon sun to that part of the house and they sparkle.
And if I'm in the kitchen, Grace is in the kitchen.
Next week's challenge: Get outside!
