I spend a lot of time in the kitchen, as do most moms. I have been working hard to get the kitchen working for me, but I also want it to be pretty. I have seen so many images of gorgeous kitchens I have been inspired. When we were looking for a house I dreamed of beautiful white cabinets and I am so thankful to have found a house with white cabinets and a beautiful backsplash to show off all of my finds.
This scale was a find from the Waterloo Brocante in Belgium. This scale is so HEAVY, I could barely get it to the car. The day I bought this scale the vendor had 2, but I only had room for this one. I still think about the other scale that I had to walk away from. The torchons, or kitchen towels were collected around France and Belgium on our adventures. The little enamelware pot with lid is another of my favorite pieces with the red and yellow checks.
This set of cabinets holds my brown transfer ware collection.
I found a complete set of brown transfer ware while we lived in Norway, but pretty much everything else is from France and Belgium.
Here is most of my collection.
I love this giant platter. I found this giant plate at a brocante in downtown Paris.
I love having all of these dishes in the kitchen where I can see them everyday.
This last cabinet holds my red transfer ware that belonged to my great grandmother. My Great Grammy Amy, who I was named after, collected this set and it was passed down to me just a couple of years ago.
I love how all of these pieces fit in this cabinet.
I think these two collections work so well together and they make me happy.
Here is one of my little helpers trying to stage my props for me.
And here is my favorite corner of my kitchen.
