I’m back! It’s a good feeling to know I can get online whenever I want again! But I learned from my ‘fast’ – once again my goal is to maintain control over my computer time, not have the computer control me!

In many ways, this is my dream kitchen. The bar is just what I’ve always wanted, and the space above the cupboards is ideal for displaying my delft china collection. I have wanted to have a delft-themed kitchen since I got married, but didn’t quite achieve it in the last place. Here, though, I have let it inspire me throughout, and I’m quite pleased with the result. Add to that the lovely light fixtures my husband installed, and I couldn’t be happier! Here is the view when you come in the front door and turn to the right….
And this (on the left) is the wall to the right of the table…my appliance counter, and the grain mill is neighbor to the fridge. See the two side cupboards up top? Those were originally stained glass window/ mirror panes, but they were smashed. I am going to put little shirred curtains in the doors that will match the valances over the windows.
Anja installed the blinds one day last week when she was over. They are ideal for maintaining some privacy and still letting all that lovely light in.
Last night Jeremy brought my box of delft from storage – I had so much fun setting all the pieces in place! It made the kitchen feel complete, though I still have a few more things to do…
