Cozy Kitchen Corner

Even the kitchen counters can be decorated. To create cozy kitchen corners, add decorative touches and candles.

I have been trying to figure out where to display my little toy stove. The first spot was not successful. Next to the phone, everyone was dumping paperwork on it. Of course it wasn't me I swear.
I moved my breadbox to another spot and scrubbed down the counters and backsplash. I may change the picture hanging behind the flowers but for now it will stay.

Brought out this green tin that has been hiding in the laundry room.

Always a candle burning in my kitchen. I stock up when I find them on clearance.

In the evening after dinner, kitchen all scrubbed and counters straightened until the next day when life begins again.


  1. Hi,
    Like your cute lil stove, and it looks cute there.
    Your green cracker box is cute too. and you and I are alike on the candles, gotta have a candle in the kitchen, they are just so cozy and homey, and make your home smell wonderful, and I am all for that!
    Have a Very Happy Valentines day hon,
    and thanks for praying for hubby and his job.
