A Glimpse at a Country Kitchen

Now I call this a country kitchen.

The cabinets look like my granny's did.

She bought the stool from me when I renovated my kitchen.

Pardon the technology.
I guess you have to have a little 21st century in there.
Couldn't hardly make it without the lights, running water,
and AC and certainly couldn't blog without it.

The high chair would be recalled today
but it worked just fine in decades past.

All the walls and floors are heart pine.

Most of the cabinets are filled with vintage kitchenware
from the 30's, 40's and 50's, and they use it all!

 The chandelier 
was spray painted red and the canning jars added.

The lighting was perfect, inside
and out.

The patio lights are made from a string of Christmas lights
and red solo cups.

Thanks for stopping by.
Hope you enjoyed your stay.



  1. Love the cupboard doors!! It all says country to me!

  2. Oh, I just love those cabinets! I will have to show them to my husband :)

    I hope you are doing well, dear Bonnie! Enjoy your day. Hugs!

  3. Love the cabinets and the wood on the walls and floor! I could settle in there really nice! :)

    I look at pictures of things like the chandelier where they used mason jars for the globes and I think, "Now, why didn't I think of that!" Can you imagine how much easier it would be to remove them to wash them!

    Thanks so much for sharing, Bonnie!

  4. I love, love the chandelier!! Oh honey, I will have to eventually show you are kitchen, talk about old, LOLOL. BLESSINGS

  9. Visiting you from Dianna's blog today and I must say...that old highchair brought back some great memories for me! Love all the pics. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  10. What a pretty place. Heart pine is incredibly expensive now. They quit using it as a building material because it's a fire hazard (excuse my former volunteer firefighter self popping out). I wish I still had my old high chair. Alas, it and most of my childhood memorabilia are lost to history. After Mom died in 1966, Dad chucked everything. You're fortunate to have such nice memories and places to go to with them. Thanks for sharing. ~:)

  11. love all the red! esp. the clever jar chandy:) great vintage kitchen!

  13. Cute and colorful! I wish I'd kept some of my old things.

  14. The whole place is filled with charm!

  15. I love this.
    I wish I had one of those high chairs now…..well, not just NOW, but soon. :)

  16. That chandelier? AMAZING! How creative! And I just adore that old high chair. I remember seeing one in my house or my grandma's house a VERY long time ago :)

  17. That was a fun tour. I love the old stool.

  18. Love the cabinet doors Bonnie. They scream country and love the chandy with the little jars. So sweet.
