The Heart of My Home

Sheila at Note Songs is the gracious host of a fun party this week called

Come take a look at the heart of my home, my kitchen.





I love that I can watch the kids play in the backyard while I cook and clean.
I spy a little wreath on the playhouse.  I am training her right.

Here is my new fork and spoon that my mom gave me for my birthday!

This is command central for all dinners, homework, crafts, games, etc...

The dumping grounds!  I am keeping it real, y'all!

And of course no heart of the home would be complete without a large guard cat! 
 I think the only thing Fifi is protecting is that chair!
Oops, there is an air-soft pellet under the china cabinet!

Thanks Sheila for such a fun party!

Well first, your daughter is just adorable and cute kitty! Love the archway, and the large window overlooking the backyard. I know your family is often making memories here. Stopping by from Note Songs party. I hope you'll drop by Atticmag to see our kitchens - it's a three for one!

Thanks for stopping by and leaving such nice comments about my kitchen reno. I couldn't help but laugh over your electric plug envy. Too funny! Actually I see some similarities in our kitchens.

I like your window treatment. I'm going to attempt to use a plantation shutter I bought off Craigslist but my kitchen guy pointed out I won't be able to open the shutter or my window because the taller faucet will be in the way. Awwww...who needs to open a window anyway? Well, if the shutter idea is a flop, I'll have to remember your window treatment idea. :)

Laci, I love your kitchen and my favorite is that green cabinet. I love that. Did you paint it and if so what is the color?

Liz said...

Lacy, love your kitchen and your blog too! I'm following. Love your curtains on the window and how you put the same fabric on the back of your china cabinet. Oh, and tell you sweet little girl, I love her wreath on her playhouse, very nice touch! :)

You have such a welcoming kitchen, Lacy. I really like all of your accessories--you're my kind of girl in that dept. Your dining chandelier is just gorgeous and I love your painted hutch.

Very pretty kitchen! I love your plaid curtains and how they coordinate with the plaid in your hutch! By the way I adore that painted hutch! Almost forgot the chandy is beautiful too! Great job bringing together a very comforting (frenchy) look! It's wonderful!

Good morning lacy, I am still visiting the kitchens. There is a long list. I love your kitchen very much. I think your counter tops are like mine. Your cabinets are so pretty. Most of all your little girl is adorable and the guard cat is too. Smile. Love your photos and the keeping it real part.

You have a beautiful kitchen! Love the way it is laid out and how you have accessorized it. Wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed your previous post about Cynthia Aiken. I seriously gasped when I saw the pictures of her work. Truly perfect and gorgeous in my book! How can I find her on Rate My Space?

Hi Lacy, I thought I left a comment, so just in case, I'll try again! I still love your kitchen! I love that beautiful arch, and how you have used the black. Love the black tray too. Love those placemats too!

Love the view over the sink. I always loved having a window over the sink, even though I don't have one now.
Great cabinets, pretty curtains, love the accessories, too!
