Favorite Things in My Kitchen




I love a little bit of black detail in things along with my roses! I have co-ordinated my kitchen to go with my living room from the previous post. My kitchen is filling up with quite a few vintage treasures : old dishes, a straw garden hat with millinery flowers, and a barkcloth kitchen towel.




please join me for "What's in your Cottage Cupboard?" blog party.

  21. I love the pop of the black also! It is SO pretty with the pastels...keeps them from being too sweet and grounds them a little bit.

    Happy Valentine's Day,

  27. Bonjour, Christie!
    Merci beaucoup for visiting my blog:)
    Votre chateau est tres, tres belle! I agree about that touch of black -- and I love stripes.
    Good luck in your plans for painting classes. I wish I were close enough to visit during your vintage market -- (but it's probably a good thing I'm not; the hubby doesn't comprehend the shabbily chic look!ha!)
