Kitchen Photos...finally...

Getting organized in a new home seems to take forever! But, finally, my kitchen and dining area are done!
The Dining area is part of my kitchen - but, I sort of wanted to separate it a bit...and I think it is a success. Both bookcases hold my cookbooks and cooking magazine. The shot glasses on the back bookcase have been collected on my travels as have been a lot of my cookbooks. My counter space for some of my small appliances and canisters is in the corner. I like it a lot and it still leaves me with enough counter space to work.This is the view from the living room - you see the stove and refrigerator - the sink area is hidden by the wall. The cabinet above the refrig holds my good china while the other two cabinets going across that wall hold some canned goods and spices.
These two cabinets hold most of my food - and act as my pantry. There is never enough cabinet space in any kitchen.
This photo shows the sink area and my microwave. The cabinets on the top hold my dishes and glassware. The bottom ones from the left - tupperware type stuff, then cleaning products under the sink, and the last two doors are my pots, pans, and skillets.

It is a nice size kitchen...and I am most comfortable in it. All the appliances work well and I have lots of room to cook and bake.

Updated: Gee, I totally didn't mention my tea pot collection which is scattered all over my kitchen and dining room...Duh...

It must be satisfying to reach a state of organization! And without reaching for those shot glasses! It seems that you have some good 'zones' for different activities!

And hello, Michele sent me! (right at midnight here in the UK!)

It is always good when you sort things out and organise them so that you feel settled in. I love that you have zoned your kitchen and dining area too :)

Michele sent me to say hi.

Look at all your cookbooks!
And I love the black cabinets with the centered pulls. :)

Very nice, Sara! I see that you have my first cookbook - the Joy of Cooking. I have a very early version (1960) and I still use it often. I like your teapots, too. Michele sent me.

I'm amazed at how quickly you've made it look so much like home. If I didn't know better, I'd swear from these pictures that you've been there forever.

I know who I'm asking for advice the next time we move!

All the best from Michele's (again). Hope you're not sick of me this weekend!

I love the way you have red pieces accenting the black and white. Very homey.

And you're right, there is NEVER enough counter space.

And thanks for your sweet comment on my blog.

Looks super, Sara. LOL I initially typed "Looks supper"! Maybe I need to go eat :) It's just so fun to get things arranged just the way you like them.

Thanks for visiting. Teapots are a great collection - know where they're from and all? Or did you just pick pretty one? hehe

Oh, and yes, did make the pickles. yum. :)

You're better at organizing than I am. Hey, I have the Joy of Cooking also. But you sure out do me on the total of cookbooks. And now I see some of your tea pots. Love 'em! Would you believe I now have 3 of them and before my tea cozy, I only had one.

You are so organized! And you have a lot of cookbooks. Even though I hate to cook, I love to read cookbooks! Weird, huh!

Your kitchen looks like a comfy one, you've obviously put a lot of time and effort into it.
