Almost There... My Kitchen Preview

One week in and it almost feels like home!

A few of you have been sending me messages asking for pictures of the new "crib". Everything else is still a mess but I have sorted through the 40 boxes or so that belong to the kitchen . Please excuse the pictures as I took them on my iphone but here's a glimpse of our favorite room!

The butler's pantry is the room off the top right. I can't seem to get a good shot of it just yet.

Another angle taken in the evening. The door on the right leads to the service area.

And the other side , our breakfast nook. It looks really bare, I know. It will take some time to adorn. I have three bar stools on the way for the center island and some blinds for the windows, but I'll still need some more accessories. All in good time I suppose.

Hope you enjoy this sneak peak.
I promise to take some better pictures soon and describe everything in more detail.
Meanwhile, the rest of my house beckons for immediate attention!
