TGIF & The Little Things that Make Me Happy

So, the kitchen is my most favorite room in the house...
This is where our family has come together...
to eat..
to work on homework...
to create...
to visit...
So it makes sense that I start here, to show you a few of my favorite things!
My Pepper Mill...
My Pineapple Candle...
My Olive Oil Cruet,
that was my grandmother's...
...over one hundred years old.
My Apple Cookie Jar,
 a wedding gift to my parents...
...over sixty years old
My Nutmeg Grinder...
The nutmeg grinder...
a Christmas gift from Amy and Seth.

It can make the most ordinaryfoods
taste absolutely fabulous!
 
My coffee station...
Would you like a closer look?
the sweet Coffee Scoop...
...Mother's Day gift from Emily.


And...Does anyone else think
that the cat on this tin
looks like our Callie?

Love your favorite things, and how you have items from you grandparents, and you parents. Nice to someday pass them on.

So pretty...love that coffee scoop too! My kitchen and living room all run together...it's one big open floor plan....so when I'm trying to relax on the sofa I can look over and see the dishes I need to wash...lol.

Have a GREAT weekend!
Hugs,
