I'm posting about my kitchen again. If you're sick of hearing about my kitchen, then go ahead and skip to your next blog...

Yes, it's another post about my kitchen. If you're reading this, then I guess you want to hear more, so here you go...

Today I am participating in Cielo's...


I think Cielo is one of the coolest names I've ever heard of. It means "sky" in spanish. Anyway, she asked her participants to post about an item or items in their home they treasure, and you know it, I had to pick my kitchen.

During the past six Homemaker Mondays, I have chronicled how I designed the kitchen, step-by-step, but today I would like to show you exactly why it is a treasure: because we live in it, together, one big happy (mostly) family of ten, with one to nineteen more visitors on a regular basis. It's where the kids plop their back packs down and start rattling off about their day. It's where we eat our family dinners together, at least five times a week, it's where the babies hang on my legs as I mix up a bowl of cookies for the Family Home Evening treat, and it's where my friends sit (some breastfeeding) and become my therapists while I cut vegetables or knead bread. It's where my husband does Christmas projects with the kids, tries crazy combinations of condiments on his sandwiches, invents new recipes and encourages the kids to all pitch in and help. Truly, it's where we live and it's my treasure. Here, take a look...

















Why don't you go check out "The House in the Roses" blog for lots more treasures!

I LOVE how you go on about your kitchen! It truly is where we spend so much time! I am still coveting all over the place. Amazing!!! Thanks for all the wonderful kitchen posts, I have been thinking how I can rearrange mine for more "centers". Wonderful!

When I saw the photo of your kitchen at Ceilo's, it nearly took my breath away! It's gorgeous and I'm sure you must treasure it.

But even more to treasure is that it's a warm, loving place for such a beautiful family to gather.

Hugs,
Deborah
