From Kitchen Peninsula to a Buffet

For you viewing pleasure, 
I thought I'd repost a change we did a while back.

Years ago this was our kitchen.
 Stained cabinets (which my father made) with a peninsula.

Over the years I changed the doors, added wallpaper,

and painted the cabinets.
 This really brighten it up but I still wanted a more opened space soooo...
 We chopped off the peninsula!
 I even painted my countertops.

 Finally we got granite countertops. Looove them!
I also took the doors off of my cabinets.
I did this even before it was popular!
I love the cabinets without the doors.

Another view without the peninsula.
 Want to know what we did with the part we took off? 

I turned it into an island.
 I used it in the kitchen for many years. Of course it was many colors.
But this was the only picture I could find of one of the makeovers. It gave us lots of storage.
 But if you know me you know I like to change things around. 

Finally it has become a buffet/sideboard in our dining room.
 I added a piece across the back with some filigree for interest.
 I added bamboo molding around the doors and drawers and bought new hardware.
 Of course I painted it a different color. I also added stair spindles on the sides at the front. 
It's a great accent piece and still very useful.
 It works great for serving buffet style at family dinners and parties.

We call it the Gecko!
It's a fun piece.

"I am the Alpha and the Omega,
the First and the Last, 
the Beginning and the End."

Cold winter morning

The girls and boys enjoying a dish of warm oatmeal
on a very cold winter morning. 

And we know that in all things
God works for the good
of all who love him.

MERRY CHRISTMAS from the Hen House

The girls and boys would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas.
From their house to yours.

Merry Christmas from:

May you have a BLESSED season.

My First Egg

Finally we have an egg in the hen house.
Isn't it beautiful!
I know, I sound crazy. But I've been waiting for this egg for 5 months.

It was laid by Copper. A red sex-link chicken.
She's beautiful also don't you think!

Beautiful chicken= Beautiful egg..

Another Rooster

Guess which hen turned into a rooster? 
It's my little bantam, Slippers.

Our other rooster, Biscuit starting crowing at 10 weeks.
Slippers is almost 20 weeks and has just recently started
(or should I say trying) to crow. 
He's really pitiful.
 Here he is as a little baby.

 Now he's all grown up and strutting his stuff.
