This is a long view of the kitchen. I love these appliances, so my kitchen had to be this era, even though there is a computer in the study. There is ravioli and sauce cooking on the stove (Kitchen Captive) and a pizza in the oven. There is a salad being made on the cabinet counter, and a broken egg on the floor (must be a Caesar salad). The dog represents two Schauzers we have owned, Nickel & Sparkle. We have never had a white cat, but over the years, we have had 7 cats of various breeds.
A view of the left side of the kitchen. On the back burner of the stove is a glass percolator my husband brought from Chicago many years ago.
The right side of the kitchen. We have a bay window in the "real" kitchen and I wanted to have one in my dollhouse. The hanging plant is a preserved real plant (I don't know what it is) and hung in a crocheted holder. The beautiful cake is by Diminutive Delectibles by Mary. The placemants, napkin rings, and napkins were sent in a swap by an AOL member (sorry I don't remember her name).
The plant on the small cabinet is an aloe vera made by my friend, Mary Ellis. I have a "thing" for mixing bowls. There are several more sitting on the top of the kitchen cabinet. Since I took this picture, I added the little painted birdhouse above the cabinet (shown in the below picture).
I'm using the painted birdhouse as a holder for keys. It was a gift from a friend, Barb Heinzen.
