Hi, everyone! I am so excited about sharing our home decor and projects with all of you.
Today, I wants to share with you our kitchen.
This is a room in our home that changes all the time. There is a different decor every season and sometimes, twice in the same season. I just can't seem to be able to leave it alone. :)
I don't have a theme in my kitchen, I just buy what I like and try to incorporate it.
Right now, is decorated for Fall. I haven't finished with it yet, but I wanted to show you what I got so far.
Please, join me for a little tour.

These little guys came from the Dollar Tree. Aren't they cute?

The candle holders I bought at Kirklands many years ago and the little Fall candles I found at Kohls.

The metal leaf and ceramic pumpkins is also from Kirklands

Eating area

I have a lot of counter space in my kitchen, so I have used some of it to display my decor

A little corner by the window seat

The butler's pantry

So, here it is, the heart of our home.
Thank you all for coming by!

  8. Hi, Joy, so nice to meet you!
    Thank you! I am going to go to your blog right now.

  9. Your kitchen is beautiful, and your decorations are wonderful. Love the pops of orange and green against the darker colors of your kitchen. I think my favorite is your place settings. They are so much fun!I am a Navy mom, too. AND, my parents wanted to name me Maria Elena after a song that was popular at the time, but settled on Elaine Marie! :)

  10. Oh my goodness, your kitchen is very similar to mine except your decorations are much more prettier!! We haven't been in our new home a year yet but the kitchen has the similar cherry wood cabinets and the same color of granite countertops. Our floor is a horrible white tile and want to get it replaced. I wish I had room for large island like yours. Thanks for sharing and I'm so inspired!! :)

  11. ISavortheWeekend, how cool it is that our kitchens are so similar! Our floors are the same as the backsplah, I guess you can't see it on the pictures. I would love to see your kitchen to get more ideas on decor.
    Thanks for stopping by! Hope to see you again soon!

  12. Maria, I love your kitchen! Glad you found those Spanish rooster pictures from K's. I finally found a home for mine. They really look great on your counter top.

  13. Helen, I would of never found those rooster pictures if it wasn't because of you!
    Thank you! I do love them! Glad you like them in my kitchen.

  14. That is such a beautiful kitchen. WOW!!


  15. I love your kitchen, and the wine Box... really like!

  16. Tina, thank you for your kind comment.
    Wine box is from Kirklands. Got both for $20!

  17. Your kitchen and house are simply wonderful.

    Visiting from Debbiedoos.

    I'm a new follower; hope you will follow me, too.

  18. Tina, thank you! I am headed over to your blog right now! Glad you stopped by!

  19. Hi Maria! I just posted about your Fleur-de-Lis candlesticks today at Scribbles and Swirls. Please go take a look and let me know what you think.
    As always, thanks for the inspiration!
