Spring Kitchen

Happy spring!  It's been a while since I've shared our kitchen (see original post here), which has been updated lately with small changes - heavily influenced by Jeanne D'Arc Living, of course.  :)




The heart sachets & towels I recently crafted have found a home here, as well as the fabulous vintage blue scale from the White Elephant store:




Jeanne D'Arc Living magazine also inspired me to doodle this design on our chalkboard & add this mirror over the stove:


The tiny built-in original to our home showcases glassware & vintage china:

This old ladder is a favorite place to display my embroidered towels:

Ruffled pillows I sewed from Shabby Chic powder blue linen have been placed on the chairs I personalized with our children's initials:


The window also got updated with a light fixture.  You may recall this rusty old cage I picked up at the Flea Market last year.  Rigging it with a lamp kit made it functional for evening dishwashing (I can finally see what I'm washing!). 


Had to add a pop of spring color with roses:


I love the fresh spring look, and being able to open windows now!

I am totally in love with your beautiful kitchen, Susan! It looks straight out of the pages of Jeanne d'Arc! Lucky you to have those great built ins, and I love your idea of transforming the bird cage into a light! I would spend alot of time in here if it were my kitchen!!

What a pretty space! I'm glad you showed it again. It must bring you a lot of joy to surround yourself with so many wonderful things. There are tons of my favorites here. Ironstone, of course, and the linens. But it's all put together so well. I loved my visit here!
