Jeekinz, i have no powers whatsoever at keeping those bottles corked. it being just me (and thusly unable to really consume all 44 bottles in one evening), i manage to keep it sort-of stocked

Oh, I love looking at everyone's kitchens! The kitchen is always my favorite room in any house. I have posted a pic of my kitchen on another thread, but here it is. To appreciate how far we have come, I've also posted a picture taken the day we moved in, almost two years ago,

I love the brightness in my little kitchen - it is not fancy, but it suits my needs perfectly.

Wow, Karen, that's amazing. I love the brightness, too. Great colors. That certainly was a lot of work.

Ah gee - thanks, guys! It was pretty grim when we first moved in - the house was just a shell. You had to be able to imagine what it could look like. You can see our patio through the back door, with a big lichee tree right in the middle. When we moved in, it was just a sea of mud and garbage. Now it is our dining room/living room. We are very happy with the results, but there is still lots of work to do.........

Here's mine, in all it's little ugliness.
It's functional though, if I dont have anyone in there with me!
The big island helps, at some point we will extend the sink counter
and the island will be moved over about 2 feet to end at almost the deck door.
And someday we will also have a deck.....

Oh, and my kids are hams like the dog is.

Suzi, I love your kitchen. The cupboards are very nice.

Karen, your kitchen is so fun! It's so Mexican too! Reminds me of a tex-mex design. I adore bright kitchens and yours takes the cake!

no matter how big the kitchen would be, it would be too small for me. I have too much stuff and if i had biger kitchen i would get even more stuff, i love pots/pans/gedgets. It's crazy, it's adiction.
