a tiny kitchen

our new kitchen is ever so small. in comparison to our last space, its TINY. but i have quickly grown to completely love its quaintness. keeping it clean is a breeze as there are literally no counters to wipe down, and living without a dishwasher (which was originally a potential deal breaker for me) has quickly become the simplest of chores (if you can even call it that). its orderly and streamlined and every thing has a place of its own. its perfectly wonderful, which, with my love of cooking, i never thought could be true. the dining room is slightly more spacious. its shadowy and moody and the perfect little nook for early morning oatmeal sharing and late afternoon tea sipping. i love it almost as much.

again, this space is still a work in progress. i hope to find a vintage jam cupboard to replace the simple (but cheap!) ikea shelf we currently have housing all our food. i also want to find some new dining room chairs. we sold our old ones before the move, but haven't quite found the perfect replacements. the seating as is is a mish-mash of old chairs we had laying around paired with a rather uncomfortable bench (that will be moving outdoors once the new chairs are found.) but searching is half the fun... or so i'm told. ;)
