A Happy Thanksgiving To All My Bloggy Friends in The United States

Hope everyone celebrating Thanksgiving today has a wonderful one :)
One more pic here of an extension on the pictures and then I think I`ll give kitchen pictures a break for a bit before it becomes "Oh..... she`s still going on about that darn kitchen" to anyone clicking on the blog!

I dug out a couple of mirrors I had and put them and some pretty plates on this big wall. Someday may put pictures instead of mirror in those frames, but maybe not. Good and busy and not for those who prefer a sleeker contempory look, but I like it. It feels better and cozier. I need cozy. Though I see a plate needs straightening and that ivy vase on the table is a bit high. We very rarely use any of the baseboard electric heaters like the one showing here, they`re just part of the decore hehe. The old table opens up at either end for a bigger crowd round. Hubby is going to put the trim on at the weekend. Then next year build a short wall at our entrance hall. He boggles my mind at times because he can do or fix practically anything, even computer problems of which I`ve had many!

Happy Thanksgiving, I hope you get suitably drunk if that is what one is supposed to do.

I agree with you. I am not a fan of the sleek, ultramodern look. Although I don't fault those who like it.

You have created a very cozy kitchen. Now all it needs to be perfect is the smell of freshly baked bread. :)

Hope you have a great weekend.

I just love your very cozy warm looking kitchen and that is a lot of work you have both done well done it looks great.

Having a look around you home and the things you have on display there show me a little more about the lady behind the name Tea & Margaritas in my garden. :o)

thank you for sharing.

Personally, I LOVE the kitchen re-do photos!
We used to have a table similar to yours. Actually, we still do! I am currently using it as a computer table. Very versatile!

Have managed to sneak onto your site via a back door to catch up and leave a comment, still can't access your site the normal way. I love your kitchen, and enjoyed all the photographs you showed of it. You have made it really lovely.

Your kitchen is so warm and welcoming and just beautiful. I, for one, will not get tired of photos of this re-do. I think you've done a great job.

It's nice to see your finished kitchen, the flooring is a real success, gives the room a nice warm feel. I admire your talent at hanging groups of pictures and plates - I'm not very good at that so am impressed by people who are! Now you can sit back and enjoy all your hard work.

The kitchen has come out great ! and I am catching up here at your place seeing all the great photos....sorry about the opposum...not sure of the rest of that tale...but saddened just the same to hear of your loss.

You little computer area looks divine !

My favorite thing tho is your little white shelf with the red & green china pieces. That looks Sooooo Cute.
