Pretty in PINK!

This little guy I found at Home Goods last weekend has inspired me to give you a "tour" of my kitchen...


I have always loved to cook and bake, so I began collecting all my kitchen goodies when I was in high school. Rob's grandmother came across these pink Kitchen Aid appliances in a catalog one day, and she knew I would love them. She was right! With every paycheck I earned, I would order a few things from the catalog. I was also gifted with pink kitchen gadgets galore by she and my mom. Here's my favorite room of our house...

Many of the things I have have been given to me. The piggie cutting board and the antique salt and pepper shakers belonged to my great grandparents and were given to me by my grandmother. The old-fashioned refrigerator was given to me by my mom's best friend, it's full of handy things like a measuring tape, mini pencils, erasers, and a sharpener! Also pictured is the "salt pig" that inspired the addition of piggies to my kitchen. My mom found that treasure for me!


Here's where the magic happens...
My mom and I added this little shelf above the stove, we can be pretty handy when necessary!
Holiday dish towels are a must for me, I think I have them for every occasion except the 4th of July--that would clash ;)


Rob's grandmother gave me these "Bubble & Brown" casserole dishes by Rachael Ray for Christmas. I L.O.V.E these things! They make everything looks so pretty!

A little peak inside one of the cabinets...

And here's our dining room. Our table is a Big Lots steal, don't you love that place?! And the flowers were painted for me by my brother's college roommate! Oh, and that's my Easter outfit sitting on the table!

Now, you may be asking yourself what my husband thinks of all the pink. He actually doesn't mind because we made a deal when I began buying all this stuff that I would cook often if I could have my pink! He agreed, but I do have to admit it does make me giggle to see him making his scrambled eggs in a pink frying pan!
