My Place and Yours-Kitchen

Whatever you love the most in or about your kitchen is the Theme this week chosen by   Tracey   and Nic    My kitchen has been on this blog before my place yours-my collection or some of it anyway so I will put a few more glimpses of it here now.

 I scored this Kitchen cupboard when a local Antique Shop was closing down. It was in the shop on consignment for $800 but the owner didn't want it back so I made an offer of.......$70 (all I had in my purse at the time) and she accepted it!!!!! It takes three men to lift it so maybe thats why she was happy to part with it??? On top are my Rolling pins (wooden and glass) and other kitchenalia. Some of my Chook collection and other bits and bobs.
My Mum found these bottles when she was moving and passed them on to me.  In the background is my tea tin which I found at the local Op Shop ages ago. Looks great in my green and timber kitchen.
And on the floor is an old iron that is currently serving as the door stop. A great door stop but not too gentle on the toes if you happen to run in to it!!! Another thing I love in my kitchen is the polished Murray Pine floor boards. So easy to look after!!!!
Thanks vic for another great Theme this week.

Jackie, I love the cupboard. I have old furniture too. My mother says to get it fixed up, but I love all of its marks and 'wonkyness' (is there such a word!). Jenny

Wow - what a score getting that gorgeous cabinet for $70!! Love it. Love that iron too :) I bought a similar one I came across in an antique shop for my mum a few years back for her birthday.

Kylie said...

Good job you scored big time that cupboard is beautiful. Arn't you glad we don't have to iron with those things these days but who irons anyway (ok just a little bit, if I have to).
