The past few weeks I’ve been organizing my rooms and getting rid of some items. My neighbor took most of my small furniture pieces and gave them to family members. I’m glad they went to good use and I feel a bit freer and less stressed now that the house is getting in order. My fall decorating is done and now I can breathe easy before the crazy holiday season rolls around. Today I’m joining a group of bloggers and sharing a tour of my farmhouse kitchen. Thanks to Kristi at Chatfield Court for organizing this week’s event! And welcome to those of you arriving from Julie’s place at Redhead Can Decorate! (This post contains affiliate links.)
If you’ve seen my previous fall home tours this season, you know that farm animals are a central theme in my humble farmhouse. The kitchen is no different!
I found the Farm Fresh Daily sign at Antique Farmhouse. The size is perfect for the space above the kitchen sideboard’s shelf.
The adorable farmhouse mugs are from a local eatery in my favorite shopping district in Geneva, Illinois.
Every time I visited the deli to order a sandwich or salad, my eye was always drawn to the over-sized mugs. I finally broke down and bought them. They’ll be perfect for serving homemade soup, chili, and hot chocolate!
A white ironstone pitcher gets a bouquet of faux fall foliage to add just a touch of color, along with dried gourds. Simple fall decorating is often the prettiest.
My kitchen sideboard is from IKEA, unfortunately they no longer offer it. I actually purchased it from a friend several years ago.
Similar fall decorating pieces fill the other side of my farmhouse kitchen. My favorite farm animal dish towel hangs over the sink (one day I’ll have a farmhouse sink!). I moved our ceiling tin and rested it here on the shelf above the stove to add a bit of texture.
The ceiling tin used to hang above the sectional in my family room. You can see the new piece of art in that room if you visit the second part of my fall home tour.
My DIY knife holder is still holding up and no, the knives don’t cut the books or tear them up (so no books were hurt in the making of this project).
I found this little piggy salt and pepper caddy at Kirkland’s. I’ve yet to fill it with salt and pepper. Sigh.
I’m starting to build a respectable collection of hand-carved wooden spoons. The majority of them are from Polder’s Old World Market. They’re a little pricey, but so worth it!
Favorite cook books are cradled in an old wood crate – always within easy reach!
New Mason Cash bowls hold another dried gourd. Note the woodland theme in the scene on the outside of the bowl.
I pulled out my French lamb sign to go with my little sheep planter.
I thought they were the perfect pairing for my fall decorating theme in the kitchen.
A few more fall floral sprigs fill another vintage ironstone pitcher, while a tiger squash rests haphazardly along side.
I’m really into dried gourds this year. You can see how I used them in the dining room in my first fall home tour this year.
I had planned to use this wooden bowl of apples to make a pie or something, but the bowl is about half empty now. They’re perfect for fall snacking!
Next up on today’s tour is Pam from House of Hawthornes. I love her vintage style! The rest of the bloggers are listed below.
