~Farmhouse Kitchen Update~

Just thought I would share a few updates on my farmhouse kitchen. The new fridge and stove were delivered this past weekend…


and I think it looks so much better than our old ones.


I really like how all the appliances match now…the new stove looks so much nicer with the micro-wave and the sink too.


The kitchen is almost finished…but I still need to make some curtains for the kitchen window. Plus we need to get the shelves up for my white pitcher and old basket collections to go on. My hubby is waiting for it warm up some, so that he can cut the wood outside and not freeze to death. We woke up to temperatures in the low 30’s and “SNOW” this morning and they are calling for a “SNOW” storm this weekend!! Where on earth is SPRING???? It sure isn’t here!!!

I found a few goodies this past Saturday at the huge antique mall here in town. I met up with Carmen from “Primcats” and Earlene from “Primitive Passion Decorating” for a day of fun and treasure hunting. I got this large old scale to sit on the countertop in the kitchen…I thought it would be a great piece to change out the decor with different vignettes for the seasons and holidays.


I’ll share the other two things that I got on an upcoming post. Oh….I also hung back up the old milk scale that I found at a local thrift shop last year. It hangs between the kitchen and dining room.


I’ll be back here in a few days to post about my birthday and my 5th year blogiversary giveaways that will be next week. It doesn’t show on my blog that I’ve been blogging since the beginning of April 2008. I lost the first 4 years of posts on my blog…and was never able to recover them. I was redoing some things on my blog and thought I had saved all the posts in a saved file, but after a period of time…it deleted them. I was so upset and almost stopped blogging…but I knew that I would miss it too much, so I just started over last year.

Hope everyone has a great weekend and that it feels like Spring where you live!!

Until next time…….         blessings, Cindy

    Cindy, the new appliances are beautiful, I love them. Have you ever thought of using Carbonite to back all your files up on, it doesn’t cost that much and if you ever have a crash you will be able to retrieve your files. Just a thought for you. I truly do love your kitchen. Happy anniversary and happy upcoming birthday too! I’ll be thinking warm thoughts for you but it’s down to 49 here in central Florida right now, which is pretty chilly for us. Take care.

    Wow Cindy, Love the stove and fridge. You are one lucky lady. Everything looks great. I really like that old scale too. Great possibilities there for decorating. That antique mall sounds great. Can’t wait to see your other purchases. Enjoy the snow. It will have to end soon. It’s going to be cool here for the weekend and rain everyday. That’s okay… Spring is here … somewhere. Have a great weekend.

    Oh, Cindy!! The appliances look wonderful! I’m loving BOTH scales too. I’m so sick of snow..every single morning there is new snow. UGH! It has really been hurting Al as far as getting wood ready for me to work on. Sigh… keep warm and enjoy that gorgeous kitchen!! –Jan

    Love the new appliances! Everything is coming together so nice. Sounds like a fun shopping trip. Love the scale. Can’t wait to see what else you found. Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

  • kelly

    I really like your new SS appliances! I love SS. Your new finds at the antique store are great too. Sounds mighty cold there. I hope you’ll get some relief soon. It’s back to being ugly weather here too. We got spoiled by some warm sunshine last weekend, but it was just a tease!

  • Lavender Dreams

    Your new appliances are beautiful and I know you’ll enjoy them. Love all of your prim accessories, too like the vintage scale on your counter. I don’t think I’ve ever seen one like that. Enjoy your weekend! Happy cooking!

  • Jann Olson

    Cindy, your new appliances look wonderful. Oh my, I have such a scale fetish and both are fabulous! Our basement farmhouse kitchen is now painted and they will install cupboards next week. I can hardly contain my excitement! My daughter gave me a huge scale for Christmas that I hope to hang down there. They are so fun for every day and seasonal decor. Can’t wait to see the rest of your finds. Congrats on your birthday.
