My Fall Kitchen

Hi All,
I am soooooo loving the chilly weather. Took a brisk walk this morning, which was a good start to the day. I am sharing my kitchen with Julia over at Hooked On Houses. This is such a great site dedicated to showing homes,  of all sorts. She is doing a post on her followers kitchens and the photos we send her. Go over and say hi to Julia and check out her great website, when you get a chance. Here are the pics I contributed...
 My kitchen.  I changed out the lower cabinets from the apple green to a milky white and added new knobs...
 Of course, I can't do a kitchen post without highlighting my Flair!
 The nook area...
 Granny's hoosier, which I have shown many times...
And the door leading to the basement, which I turned into a chalkboard.  P.S. My daughter just pointed out I let the other "P" out of Pumpkin! lol

I've visited you a few times now...took a peek around, and I must say I have never seen a Flair before. How interesting! I'm guessing this is your stove? Too cool! Thanks for sharing your cozy kitchen!

Amazing how your stove fits right in. Love the chalkboard door, we have so much fun with the one in the kitchen at 1515

I love your Flair. When I was growing up, a friend's mother had one. I always thought they must be rich. :) Your kitchen is so warm and inviting. I have 'half a hoosier'. It belonged to my mother. The top half got separated from the bottom at some time, and I only have the bottom. I painted and worked on it earlier this year, and brought it into my mud room. I enjoy it so much!

I love your kitchen! I especially like the door you made into a chalkboard. I'm new to your blog, so did you do a post about how you did that?

bj said...

Love your pretty kitchen. I like your cabinets white. I am thinking of painting my red lowers white, too. :))

Hi, I've never seen the 'Flair'. It's so cool!! Next time I watch an old re run of Bewitched I'll have to keep a look out. I love your kitchen redo! Beautiful job. I am following you. Please come by and follow me at Pinehurst Cottage. Come with us on our journey in finding a vacation cottage and the renovation of it. I'd love to get your opinion. ~Amy

It's always fun to see your home, Robin. Your kitchen is so very charming. The hoosier is gorgeous -- such a treasure. I know I've seen the Flair before, but it always reminds me of the Tapan that we had when I was growing up. The oven was on the top and the burner section slid in and out -- that was good because my Mom was a messy cook and didn't like to clean up....lol!

Hi, Robin! Glad I popped over in time to see your cozy, welcoming kitchen ready for Fall! I think the p in words like pumpkin and raspberry just seem unnecessary! :)

Never heard of a Flair before, it looks like a huge stove/oven. Like you cabinets all white. Everything looks so pretty. Thanks for sharing your inspiration with Sunday’s Best – you helped make the party a success!

Sherry said...

Thanks for taking the time to discuss this, I feel strongly about it and love learning more on this topic. If possible, as you gain expertise, would you mind updating your blog with more information? It is extremely helpful for me.

Found you through Julia over at HoH! I have to say your home is just charming and that picture above looks just like a postcard- so unbelievably quaint! Love it!

carol fun said...

Hi Robin - I found you over at Julia's blog. The pic of your Frigidaire Flair took me right back to my teen age years. My mom had this same stove - in totally modern coppertone!

Wendy said...

I have very fond memories of my grandmother's Flair. She used to pull out the stove top drawer and sit three year old me on top of it so I could watch my Eggos toasting up for a couple of minutes in the glass front oven. Every time I see the picture of your Flair it reminds me of her and makes me smile.
Thank you so much,
Wendy
