Kitchen Fun

Since Blogspots burp last week,
I've been discomblogulated!

So, I went through some photos and found some of my kitchen
that I don't believe I've ever shared.


Kitchen Mosaic



Your eyes aren't deceiving you.
The walls of the kitchen are painted what a friend calls
dreamsicle orange.

Kitchen Mosaic


I found the chandelier at a friends shop on Galveston Island.
San Pascual is the patron saint of cooks, kitchens,
finding lost animals and the Holy Eucharist.
He is from New Mexico and was made by artists
Richard and Susan Berqouist in 1982.
The chicken pitcher got the chicken thing started.
The crab is just one of the many fun and brightly colored decorations from Mexico.

Kitchen Mosaic

The metal rooster is a watering can and the watercolor is by a Michigan artist.
We brought the green chicken home from Ubeda, Spain. 
The chicken in the back with the crown is Chicken A La King
from the Poultry in Motion collection by Westland Giftware.
Rooster and chicken salt and pepper shakers.


Wishing you WELL and a JOY filled week.

That must be a fun kitchen to cook in! The chandelier is great and I love the watering can chicken. Now after seeing all these photos I suddenly have a craving for a Dreamsicle!!

I actually like the color of your kitchen. It looks like cremesickle--a treat my grandfather used to give us--icecream on the inside covered by orange.

Love your chicken collection. It is so much fun to look at. Your kitchen is a real dream. Would love to have it here in my old farmhouse. The chickens would fit in so well.

That's a great color! I liked it immediately. And I like the graphics, especially the white hen. I also like how you described the Blogger fiasco. Ha! You have a great week, too.

Such a fun and colourful kitchen. Yes, the blogger breakdown gave us all more time to do some things we should be doing instead of visiting with friends all over the country. ;-)

Your wall colour looks similar to mine. I think it was Benjamin Moore Spicy Pear or something like that. V
