Now back to my Kitchen.......

Some time quite a while ago, I started my Series on One Wall in my Kitchen and I did 2 posts sharing 2 different walls in my Kitchen with you!!

This one......

And this Wall.......

Then Summer came along and I got involved in gardening and was doing porch, patio and garden posts.

So I thought that it was time to continue the Series of One Wall in my Kitchen so today I am going to share with you the 3rd wall in my Kitchen!!


These are the 2 remaining Walls in my small Kitchen!!
Almost a year ago, we remodeled the downstairs and the Kitchen got new floors, new counter tops and a new sink......
 The cabinets and walls were painted 2 years ago and a new wall paper border was also added.

I am very happy with the outcome!!

This is the wall I am showing you today.....
This wall was originally the back of the house with the back door opening up into an enclosed patio......
Many years ago,we made that patio into another room, the Den, and took out the Back Door and the Kitchen window......
Looking out what used to be the back door into the Den......
On top of the doorway.....
Corner of the cabinets.....
Moving over........
Copper Accents......
Without the overhead light on.....
 Some of the new red utensils bought at Dollar Tree.....
My Kitchen is too small for a dishwasher......
 Joe is my dish washer.......
 Remember the gift bags that I bought at a Flea Market and framed.......

Well, here is one of them......
 This cheese box holds some medications and salt and pepper shakers that I use while cooking.....
Utensil holder and vintage Avon lotion dispenser......
 Moving over again....
   Again, too much of a glare from the overhead light!!
 That's better!!
Notice the rose lights that I have intertwined in the garland around the area where the window used to be???????
I like to decorate this area for different Seasons and Holidays and this is my Summer display......
I painted these $1.00 birdhouses from Michaels......
The garland has the rose lights added to it and a few yellow butterflies , also from Michael's......
I made a bow out of some red and white pretty ribbon......
Hung some pears  from the tea cup chandy that I made several years ago......
A cute bird from Michaels......
Looking out into the Den.....
The yellow doilies are from Michaels too....in the $1.00 bins!!
The cute bird is from Dollar Tree!!
Notice the milk bottles?????
I sound like a broken record but they were also bought at Michaels and I painted them and added the cute heart chalkboard tags to them and guess where I bought those??????
Michaels again!!!!!
And you know how I love to share with you how things look lit up in the evening.......
The candles on the ledge are LED and come on by timer......
 I will show you the counter top on the other side of the sink when I share the Last Wall in my Kitchen......
I hope you will come back and visit again......

 I will also be sharing with you what I have been buying lately.......

Joe and I went to a great Estate Sale and a Liquidation Sale of a Florist Shop and Warehouse last Saturday!!!!

I have been very busy lately so that is why it has been a while since I posted......

I attended a funeral of a friend from our church the other day......

A 90 year old mother should NEVER find her 63 year old daughter, her only child, that lived with her, dead........

And have to bury her........

But, sadly, this is what happened to 2 dear friends of mine......

The 90 year old Mom is one of the most amazing 90 year old persons I have ever met.... She helps count the money collected after Masses on the weekend and enters the totals into the computer system which she learned 3 years ago!!! It was only 3 years ago that she stopped volunteering at the Red Cross Blood Drives and a local Soup Kitchen!! She is our cashier  at the Food Stand at the Craft Fair that I run and is the main person selling food tickets at our 3 day Church Festival that starts this Friday!!!!

This is Gen at last year's Festival........
 Joe and I love this dear woman........
She buried her daughter, Kathy, on Wednesday.......

Gen as our cashier for the Food Stand at the Craft Fair!!

The only other family she now has is a niece that lives near Phila., a 2 hour drive from where we live.....

But, amazingly, there were over 30 cars in the Funeral procession to the cemetery.......

All parishioners and friends who love this dear woman......

And she will be sitting there , at the ticket booth, this weekend at our church festival, because , as she told me, Life Goes On........

Much Love to you, Gen!!!!!

We can all learn from this wonderful lady and also, we all must live our lives to the fullest and tell those that you love how much you love them because you never know what the future holds........
