Photo of Molly and the kitchen.........

I was taking photos of the kitchen (more about that later) and Molly wandered into the kitchen to see if I was cooking and I snapped her in one of the photos.
I would dearly love a new kitchen as ours has seen better days, but we just don't have the money to pull it all out and re-do it how I would really like, so we are planning on doing a "mini" renovation after we finish the basement.

We are going to replace the sink, taps and counter tops and the hardware.  Also fully replace the under sink cupboard and put the old doors back on.  In the scheme of things not a big deal, but I do hope it freshens it up and makes it look a lot tidier.

It poured down on Tuesday, so it was a good day to run some errands to get those silly jobs that have been wanting done for a long time done.  We also headed to Cookstown Outlet Mall but once again didn't buy anything.  As outlet malls go, its not the greatest; although I could have spent a small fortune in the Villeroy and Boch store and would love to have this pattern for my dinnerware.

I have also discovered a new to me drink at Tim Hortons which I adore, Blueberry White Tea, which I have with two milks.  It is like having a sweet treat without all the extra calories.

Your kitchen looks lovely. Mine looks like a train wreck at the moment. Also would like a new flooring, new window and paint maybe to freshen it all up.

I think your kitchen looks very cosy, perfect for sharing a cup of tea and desert. There is always something on the to do list in a home!

I love the photo of Molly in your kitchen. I like the Welsh Dresser, not sure if that is the right word. I also know about wanting a new kitchen as ours is getting pretty worn looking, but like you with our priorities for any home improvements, that's down the list somewhat.

My house to do list seems to be getting longer! I love your dresser, I have one, a bit smaller and I'm considering painting it to update it. I'm going to practise on a smaller bookcase first though!

I should also like to redo my kitchen. It's fine as is, although shows the previous owners' tastes and sensibilities rather than mine. The biggest drawback is the ceramic stove. Yes, sleek to look at, but it gets dirty at the drop of a hat and is not good for canning (bottling).

I have to say I LOVE the look of your kitchen.

Just beautiful.

Thanks for your comment on my blog. Am feeling better, thanks.

Your kitchen looks gorgeous. So much nicer than those modern awful clinical ones you see in magazines. MOlly is a brilliant addition to it.
I wouldn't dare take photos of mine. It's always such a mess.

Hi Gill! Nice to meet you today, I hope I didn't startle you too much. Did you enjoy the tearoom?

Rose said...

If I had that dinnerware, I am afraid I wouldn't use it...I would want to have it setting where I could look at it.

I like what I see of your kitchen....

Molly sure look like a happy ole gal. Anyhow I could name projects I need and want to do and usual it comes down to the know how or money. Then at time it both
Coffee is on.

I like your kitchen. You must not be showing us the part you want to renovate. :)

Your kitchen looks like a great place to spend time. You'll have to show us before and after photos of the sink and counter area later!
