~ Miniature Gourmet Cottage Kitchen - Part 2 ~


Welcome to my miniature gourmet cottage kitchen... Since part 1 of this kitchen { The post before this } there's been some fun updates and design changes. I started this kitchen all because of the stove in the picture above, and it's finally here! So I've taken more photos and there are other updates to this large kitchen since last week too, so enjoy friends! I will list them as we go along :)

This is one of a few stoves I have started to collect, and I love it. I adore vintage kitchens as most of you know and I love when they hang kitchen linens by the stove to dry , so I had a little fun with a vintage styled clothes line :) You'll see I eventually bring it outside at the end of this post...





Isn't the stove so sweet?



I wanted to build a larger island and this weekend I was finally able to finish it because my lovely towel bars came in the mail! I adore these chrome babies! :)





It holds lots of accessories and baking items, which is exactly what I needed...







And just the right accessories always make a room feel like home...This sweet little enamel bucket from Hungarian Miniatures was just what it needed , perfect to bring in fresh flowers from the garden! :)



As much as I love the fireplace, I'm thinking of painting it a robins eggs blue, what do you think?



Here's a little better shot of the pot rack from last week, it was made out of a chippy old ladder and holds a lot of gourmet pots and bowls etc!



Fresh raspberries anyone? :)



And now for the Pantry.... I showed hints of this in the kitchen last week, but now it is almost filled up. I'm making a second one to go next to this, so it will become a double pantry soon! I love collecting and making items for it, so I need more room to store them :)












Well that's a little bit more of the gourmet kitchen, I hope you enjoyed the tiny tour :) There's still more to do etc, but it's fun to see it progress I hope! I've ordered another sink because I've used the one from Summer Rose in the photos and I want the exact same one in here, plus there's a few more items still to arrive before I can say finished , but so far I'm happy with it :)

Before I go, I left you with a small hint of a mini Spring day.... Yes, I do believe it's on it's way!! :) So grab a cup of tea and come sit out with me and enjoy...


I moved the kitchen clothes line outside where the fresh air can make the mini linens smell like Spring :)

I hope you all have a beautiful week ahead!

Love and Hugs,

Cynthia xo

Just when I think you can't do anything better than you already did you surprise me. I soooo want to come back in my next life (haha) as a "little person" so that I can move into one of your houses bag and baggage! xo Diana

Wow! I just love your decorating. It's like my dream kitchen. I think a robin egg blue would be absolutely adorable in the kitchen. I love color, and I think that would just give it a pop. You're blog is very inspiring!

I really love your kitchen, what you added is so gorgeous and fantastic. The stove is great. It may be a good idea to paint the fireplace, this way we would see it more and the same for the stove.
I would love that style of kitchen in real size too.

Hi Cynthia! Your little kitchen fascinates me. So many little details to look at. I've had such fun observing everything. Your new stove is stunning. I would go ahead and paint the fireplace blue if I were you. It will stand out more against the stove!

Cynthia, thank you so much for stopping by and leaving such a sweet comment!! It's such a treat for the eye and creative soul to visit your Blog. The new kitchen is so beautiful, please forgive me if I steal an idea or two, to my humble cottage ;o)
Did you decide to paint the fireplace or leave it as is? It's always so exciting to see what you will come up with, can't wait for your next post!!
Love & Hugs, Jannet

Since I just recently found your blog I am still going back looking at all the cute pictures, I just love them. I have to ask you, did you make your fireplace in your farm kitchen or did you buy it? I love it!
