~ black & white kitchen w/blue & white toile


day 1 of my blogging experience. 
this cottage we live in was built for the gardening staff of a large estate in 1890.
join me in my pursuit of simplicity, vegan cooking, gardening and style.



  1. Hi Janet! It's so nice to meet you! I'm really enjoying your blog and I'll start at the beginning: Wow, look at what you have done with the room! Love the floor, the table, the curtains, the range, the topiary, the baskets, the chandelier, love, love, love!

  2. Hi Joan, So nice to meet you too. Your home is amazing. Mine is so tiny it's hard to take pictures of the room! Your blog has inspired me to keep trying though. Thank you so much for your kind words. Janet

  4. gorgeous! what an incredible transformation.. just amazing. I love the toile curtains. Did you make them? I think that's one of my fall/winter projects: window treatments. I love the chandelier too-- is it antique? Beautiful job all around. xo julia

  5. Julia,

    I did not make them. I got them at Lowes on clearance for $10 each. The chandelier is old (not sure if it's antique) but it was purchased at a yardsale for $50. Thanks for your kinds words.
