The babies bathed in the sink, the Holiday meals from the oven, the many projects created here and the endless loads of clean laundry folded on the counter.
The little ones who readily push up a chair and watch what’s happening or sit on the counter to help stir or help.
The family and friends who filled their plate when the counter performed as a buffet table.
ha… I just remembered when a 2-liter soda bottle fell from the counter and landed upright on the floor. The cap blew and a fountain of sticky shot so high and with such force it lifted the panels of the ceiling lights and a group of senior high youth group kids stood aghast in a kitchen dripping with Mountain Dew.
(one of those kids became our son-in-law)
I have enjoyed many beautiful seasons standing at the kitchen sink. It is a perfect place to watch visiting hummingbirds in the summer!

My oak cabinets (see photo below) were emptied, doors and hardware removed and shelves propped on every usable surface.
A gorgeous marble countertop would make me very happy, but for now the dated, builders special faux butchers block is working just fine.
|After filling in the holes from the old handles, I purchased these used porcelain knobs. Instead of replacing the hinges, I spray painted them.|
|Views I see every day.|
|This white platter not only hides ripening bananas but usually has several recipes resting in front of it that I am planning to make.|
