Also new in the kitchen

You might remember the pink tiles behind the stove and the fact that I wanted to replace them with more appropriate white ones...

Tad dah!

So much nicer than this ......

I painted the base cupboard with "Mole's breath", the same as all the other base cupboards in the kitchen.

We also had a slightly useless alcove behind the rocking chair, so our builder built me a large deep cupboard, which now houses the contents of the dresser, two book shelves for all my cookery books and a cupboard above,  in which we will keep little used items. I'm going to have a spotlight fitted in the base of the cupboard which will then light up the area with my rocking chair. I love the fact that
I'm sitting in my mums's chair. The weigh scales behind belonged to my  grandmother as did the platters above the stoves. These items help to ground me in my own past and make me smile every time I see them.


  1. The white tiles look so much better behind the stove than the pink ones, they are the same as ours behind our Aga and round the kitchen, they make everything look so fresh and clean don't they 😊 I love the cupboard and shelves in the alcove, what a brilliant use of space.

    Were the previous owners of your house colour blind, they seem to have had a terrible sense of colour....gosh I hoped they don't read your blog ... oops!!

    1. I doubt they read it! In fact I doubt they'd have time - they now live on a 40acre site with a house that needs so much work doing to it, they'll be flat out the rest of their lives 😬

  2. I love to have passed down things around me, and I too find I have a smile on my face each time I see them.

  3. Love how you have made the alcove into storage. One can never have too much storage space.

    God bless.

  4. I love the cupboard and shelves in the alcove, what a brilliant use of space.
