Let's Go Visiting!

Today I want you to meet one of the sweetest people ever!

This my friend and next door neighbor, Carolyn.

She has been kind enough to let us snoop around in her newly

updated kitchen.


Of course, there are a few roosters ...
Carolyn has a beautiful and welcoming kitchen.
The walls are faux painted a warm golden color.
She has a rich round table and a neat china cabinet right next to it.


... and a precious new hen.


There's a niche for spices just above the cook top.

There are glass front cabinets with crystal knobs. She chose
several different knobs all with the oil rubbed bronze finish.

Here's an important view.

You know we all spend a lot of time at the sink.
Her sink is the granite composite - dark color so no stains show.



Oh that fridge!!
I'm turning green with envy.


See the glow of the granite?


Carolyn has lots of pretty little bowls.
There are many little details that make this house a home.


Look at that colander. Many of the items in this cabinet
were brought back from trips to England.



Before we go, peek out the back window. Isn't it beautiful?

Thanks friend for letting us snoop around!!
You're the best!

Stacey,

I think this "snooping" has been fun! Maybe we should make a monthly event out of it!! ;-)

I understand why you wanted to show off Carolyn's kitchen. It certainly has everything I would want in a kitchen. The cabinets are just gorgeous, they almost look like built~ins. And yes, the fridge is to die for.

Thanks Carolyn!! You have done a great job with your kitchen~great decorating talent!

Just a little something from Judy said...

Carolyn's home is so beautiful!! Her kitchen is so tastefully decorated, and I like the Southern Living Cookbooks. Her back yard makes me wish for a hammock to position under the tree, and near to the fence...just for a hour or two. The best part for you is, she is a sweet, kind neighbor. What a gift!!

Happy @ Home said...

That was fun. My favorite room to see in people's houses is the kitchen and Carolyn's is lovely. Please thank her for letting us have a peek. I love the cabinet knobs and we share the same taste in colanders. I have never thought to put a bowl in mine, but I may have to give that a try as it looks darling.

DeAnna said...

Oh - I do love her kitchen, the hen is precious. I keep my fruit in a colander on the counter too - whaa a clever idea with the bowl - I'm tealing it! Tell your neighbor thank you!

Loved visiting your neighbor's home. She did a great job decorating.

Seems like you and Carolyn have some common tastes in color schemes and decore. Very pretty.
Loved the backyard!

Very nice of you to share her ideas.
