DAY FOUR of H.O.T. KITCHEN OPEN HOUSE

WELCOME TO OUR KITCHENS
JEANNE from BACKYARD NEIGHBOR says,

Hello BJ, here are the kitchen photos.. I am sending two, so take your pick. I love my very large country kitchen, The harvest table is 9 feet long, but narrow. It seats lots of company. I love the island, but my counter space is not the best. With just two of us now it works, until we have company. We no longer have a formal dining room. I don't miss it. (less dusting)

LOVELY, JEANNE

THANK YOU

Hi BJ,This is suew080 from RMS, here is my little country kitchen in my 1939 house, small but cute!








Thanks, Sue

BEVERLY at HOW SWEET THE SOUND says,



"I have attached three pictures.
The first one is looking into the working area of my kitchen. The island is painted Raspberry.
The second picture is looking into our breakfast room.
The third picture is of an antique bowfront cabinet in our breakfast room. I like my kitchen because it is large and sunny. My dream kitchen would include a large walk-in pantry. My grandmother had a wonderful pantry, and I would love one just like hers."






BEAUTIFUL, BEVERLY

THANK YOU


********************


THIS PRETTY KITCHEN belongs to THE DAUGHTER of our own








JEANNE has this to say....

" BJ, Here are my daughter's kitchen photos. You don't have to use them but I thought you would like to see them. She was fixing lunch and complained that I shot the picture with a cluttered counter. Oh well, you get the design idea. Have fun with all the kitchen stuff," Jeanne

Just tell your daughter that this is REAL LIFE....I just WISH my kitchen looked this nice while I was fixing lunch!!
MANY THANKS, LADIES

MANY OF YOU will recognize the following two photos as those belonging to our sweet DENA at




" These are my favorite corners of my kitchen.", says DENA

"I love all these kitchens for the same reason.: They're all simple, cozy (I don't like huge kitchens, because I like everything within reach) and even if I had all the money in the world, I would still want one of these kitchens."

THANKS SO MUCH FOR PLAYING ALONG WITH US, RUE...

NEXT week.

She wrote the SWEETEST story of Fairies and Love and Friendship

You will enjoy reading it so please go over and give yourself this treat ..

I am so enjoying this tour of kitchens. Now if someone will just do the other rooms we spend so much of our time in...living rooms, bedrooms and baths!

Donna said...

BJ,

I love looking at all of the Kitchens. What a neat idea you had.

I have been on vacation and got behind on blogging, so I missed out on this one. You can count on me next time!

You have done a GREAT job!

Thanks!

Jeanne said...

I especially loved todays kitchens BJ. "Smile" Could it be because three of those kitchens were close to my heart? I am in Atlanta helping my sister redecorate after turning her house upside down with "a brand new kitchen, all new floors, carpet and paint. What timing, I should have photographed her kitchen. It's beautiful.

Gotta go, we have so much work to do. Thank you so much for yet another kitchen show. Love ya, Jeanne

BJ,

This is so much fun looking at all these kitchens. I am getting ideas daily of things I can to in my small kitchen.
I know you are getting a big charge out of doing this yourself.

Can't wait to me more. Sorry your computer couldn't keep up.

Ciao
