You, me and the kitchen sink

This is the last set of photos in the kitchen sink series.  We have some really interesting photos coming in for the new series so I think you'll like that too.

Today we have Pat's kitchen in Oregon.  She writes:
"I have enclosed some pictures of my kitchen in Corvallis, Oregon. As you can see, itt is a small kitchen, but one that I find to be efficient and cozy! I love chickens, but do not raise them. Luckily I tend to my friends flock when she is away."


Please don't forget to comment. A comment is like payment for the time taken to post, and in this case in sending in the photos.  Many of us were enthusiastic about this series, so make sure all the photos get a good number of comments.  I don't want any of the people sending in photos to regret joining in.  Thank you friends.

  4. Such a charming kitchen. I just love the red and white...it's so fresh a cheerful. I love it when kitchens have a good punch of color. You've done a wonderful job. Oh, and as for chickens...I also love them. I'm lucky enough to be raising 41 of them along with my husband.

  16. Oh what a pity! The end of the series... I'm having my new kitchen fitted this week and had planned to take lots of photos to send off.

    Never mind, will look forward to the next series on whatever subject that may be on. This series has been fascinating.

  19. Pat, I think we may have the same kitchen cabinets! They're certainly very similar. The red walls give your kitchen such warmth. And I like your nice big window over the sink, with such a pleasant view.

  27. What a wonderful series of photos. Pat...Thank you so much for sending these in. Rhonda, thank you for posting these.

    This kitchen is small like mine. It's very warm and inviting, I wouldn't mind spending some time here witha cup of coffee etc. That's a great kitchen.

    Oh, and to my delight I"m not the only Oregonian following this blog :) :) Now there's myself and one other lady named Pat with a beautiful kitchen :)

    I'm excited to hear about the next series of photos you have planned.

    Have a lovely week everyone :) I think my name is showing up under my blog...but my name is Heather :)..
    Oh many greetings and hugs from Oregon. Sincerely, Heather H :) :)

  28. I find it interesting after seeing all these kitchens that everyon thinks their kitchen is small, most of the ones in America are HUGE compared to Australia. All seem to be functional and pretty. I've loved this series and look forward to the next one Rhonda. Great idea!
