Good morning friends, and welcome to another SHOW OFF YOUR COTTAGE MONDAY! Did you have a nice weekend? Oh I did! Especially delightful was going through all the glorious photographs you are about to see in our post today! Photographs of kitchens and favorite corners in kitchens and dining areas of readers and friends of “The house in the roses” who have all come together here to celebrate our favorite room in our homes. So here they are... enjoy!
Kitchen from Francesca from Italy... with all the lovely qualities of a lifestyle rooted in the countryside of the old world! Just charming!
Sheila's kitchen... romantic, with a feeling of openness and all in all TRULY DREAMY!
Carol's kitchen! Yellow walls, white Shaker cabinets with latches and vintage pulls, farmhouse sink, subway tile, soapstone counters! What a delightful place to spend time!
Cozy and romantic and so homey kitchen/dinning area embraced by natural light, from Ricki.
A magnificent out of a magazine 'frenchy' kitchen, from Isa. Isn't this gorgeous!
A favorite cozy spot in Gayla's kitchen, now decorated for the holidays!
Lissette's kitchen... I can sense a little bit of childhood here, same sense of style, crisp, clean feeling! Maybe we could pass for sisters? ;)
Cowboys in the kitchen? I'm sure! Well, cowboys or not, I'm sure everyone loves this Texas kitchen diva and her food! Family gatherings around a table of great food has always been a tradition at BJ's home.
And of course, I had to join these kitchen divas and show you my own little world too! This is my favorite room of my house. This is where I spend hours engage in delightful things such as cooking, baking, talking, laughing, sharing, singing, dancing, praying, and cleaning much!! And guess what??? Blogging too!
I’d leave you this beautiful quote from Barbara Costikyan, which I think it perfectly depicts a collective sentiment of what our kitchens represent: “In the childhood memories of every good cook, there’s a large kitchen, a warm stove, a simmering pot and a mom.”
Remember, it is NOT necessary to talk about your kitchen on your “Show Off Your Cottage Monday” to link. You are welcome to celebrate whatever you want and link and participate in our weekly meme just as you’ve been doing every Monday! Just please remember to link back to The house in the roses as pure courtesy.
