BeWitchin' Kitchens

 The Mister and I have lived in six different homes in twenty-two years.  We have lived in Connecticut, California, Florida, Illinois, The Woodlands, and McKinney, Texas.  We are pretty much on the same page when it comes to our likes and dislikes in a house. 
There is one room that we consider first and that one room is the determining factor of whether or not we will consider buying the house.  That room is the hub and the soul of the house.  It is the kitchen.  The Mister loves to cook and I love to eat.  How lucky can the Mister get to find the perfect mate?  I remind him every day.

The following photos are courtesy of my favorite addiction site, Pinterest.  
I love this kitchen for its elegance and size.   
Love the contrast of the cabinetry and marble counter tops.
There is something about brick in the kitchen that makes it feel so warm.
 The floor and windows are beautiful added touches to this kitchen.
 Don't know what I love the most - the cabinetry or the TV over the range!  Probably the TV...
 This kitchen is so unique.  Reminds me of the one that was used in a Meryl Streep movie. I forget the name but Alec Baldwin was in it.
Oh my! This is so bright and clean! Great windows.
So serene and pretty.
Love the color of the walls and cabinetry. Very country french (my favorite)!  Sista's too.
 Great cabinets. Very interesting looking.
Love the contrast between the dark wood and white trim on the windows.
Great country kitchen.  The shutters are a great touch. 
I'm in L-O-V-E!!! 
Can you believe these gorgeous refrigerator doors?  And the wine storage is beyond compare! 
I would be so happy in my little blogging world if I had a pretty little office area like this!  Hellooooo?  Are you listening, Mister?


Tomorrow I will be attending 'Neath the Wreath.  It is a Holiday Gift Market sponsored by the Junior League of Collin County.  I haven't missed one in eight years. I will take lots of pictures.

Have a great Thursday!

Preppy Empty Nester

I'm Katie. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am an empty nester meandering through my middle-aged years while entangled in the never-ending process of renovating an antique home on the South Shore of Massachusetts. I love to write about books, movies, TV, celebrities, decorating, and weekend adventures. My favorite writing material is derived from my family: the Mister, my girls, #1 and #2, and my two untrainable, rambunctious pups, Chowdah and Chili.


  1. These a beautiful kitchens. I would take any one of them. I was looking to follow you, but I don't see the follow gadget.
    Also you have word verification on in case you didn't know. Some people don't. Lot of bloggers will not take the time to comment with that on.

  2. Hi Katie
    Your comment is just above mine at Kim's blue and white post. Decided to pop over and say hi.

    Enjoyed this post. Lots of gorgeous kitchen inspiration.

    Do you have email subscription or a follow option? Would love to keep up with your posts.

  3. LOVE those kitchens. BTW, Pinterest is like crack:) We too have moved a lot and have renovated three kitchens over the year. Maybe one more ... don't tell my husband!

  4. These are all gorgeous! I love the gingham floor. I am late on replies this week, but I would LOVE to have lunch with your daughters soon! And my husband went to Berkner in Richardson, but I take him to Jesuit homecoming and he fits in great!
