Vintage in the Kitchen

Happy Vintage Inspiration Friday!  Thought I'd share glimpses into my kitchen.  I hesitate to show its' current state, since I plan to make changes this spring.  Think of these as the 'before' photos.  The style of this room is French Farmhouse, with vintage chairs, black & white tile, and plenty of baskets.
Linking to Debra's great party...see you there!

Here's our kitchen table, used for breakfast.  The 2 vintage black chairs were free from my Mom's neighbor (via trash day).  They will be painted white soon.  The enamel pitcher and bowl came from flea markets, as well as the old white tablecloth.  I sewed the topper tablecloth out of a pretty blue toile fabric, and used vintage fabric from Brimfield Flea Market to cover the chair seats. 


My favorite platter on the shelves with a tiny lavender sachet.


A chippy cone holding some white embroidered napkins, hanging next to a window.  I don't dare show you the accumulated snow outside that window (another 11 inches today!).

Dreaming of spring...

Hi Susan,
What an absolutely beautiful kitchen! It looks so peaceful and serene.
I can't believe how much snow is falling around the country. It's hard to believe that we're all in the same country when it's snowing on one side and sunny and warm on the other.
Thank you so much for the lovely comments you always leave me, I really do appreciate it!
I wish you a happy weekend.
Sincerely,
melinda
