What I am missing from my kitchen, which I believe will round it out quite nicely, are a rooster and a dinner or farm bell. I have in one corner of the kitchen a rustic baker’s rack that is covered with pots of flowers, old, weathered watering cans and some very old family photographs. On my counter over the sink I have a one foot tall, carved out of wood and painted to look very old and antique, jersey cow. She is very whimsical and rustic looking at the same time. My kitchen table is an old butcher block top, with antiqued cream colored legs and wooden chairs to match. On the table sits my grandmother’s old wooden cutting board and on top of that sits a vase with sunflowers in it. I hope that I find the just right rooster for the cupboard over my refrigerator, to sit next to my bird house and very ancient wooden wine box. Once I find the perfect dinner bell, I think my kitchen just might be complete.
Until I change my mind and redecorate it using the Tuscan theme that I keep dreaming about.
