House Photo Meme: Day 1 - Kitchen

kitchen table, originally uploaded by hep.

i am stealing this meme from notbikiniready but i am going to rearrange it and mix it up to fit our house and probably also space this out over a year rather than a week and change. sry!!~ busy!!~ there were also days for stuff like "guest bathroom" and "guest bedrooms" etc, but we don't have those so i cut them. adapt at will! i put the list at the bottom. obviously this is my kitchen. hanging to the left of the microwave is our brag board where we pin pictures, upcoming event invites, school awards, etc up. there is a long term one and a more short term board below it. then i have all my cookbooks over the microwave. the small coffins are both filled with cookie cutters and assorted cookie making supplies. a+ storage enh? :D you can also see where i have my laptop (hidden behind the ice cream maker are a tiny subwoofer and kitchen speakers. logitech $30, highly recommend. makes cooking awesome to watch hulu while doing, makes cooking SHOWS awesome and easy to watch, even makes the dishes fun because i watch tv. this is also why i am always in my kitchen on tinychat)

facing the sink, and a close up of the chandelier. it is made of glazed pottery with painted wooden fish hanging from it. hanging over the kitchen sink are the curtains i made. you can see how small the entire kitchen is from this angle. also plz note, i never see it from this height, i stood on a chair to take this hehe! also also, plz ignore the valentine's day stuff laying about, i haven't switched over to easter decorations yet (fuck st patricks day) we also have an old style rotary phone because the only people who ever call here are telemarketers ("sorry, i have a rotary phone and cannot dial that, good bye!") or kids for zane ("this phone plugs into the wall and she is downstairs. can you call her on her cell please?"). i obvs did not sweep before i took these.

the theme is sort of dia de los muertos meets spaceships meets matryoshka dolls meets colorful fish. or something to that effect. it is very much a merging of culture. above you can see the tardis cookie jar, the cookies out of this world cookie jar (that has a broken rocket top. i need to make a new one for it.) and various matryoshka measuring cups and toys. also our android tablet which we mainly use for cooking (digital recipe mate is an amazing android app if you like cooking + allrecipes. you have to import from allrecipes to it but it's a relatively easy process. been waiting for an allrecipes android app for like 3mo now. they keep promising they are working on it on twitter.) also shown: the fridge, always maximum space utilized. below is my beloved ufo bowl set. the top turns into another bowl, but together they are a ufo to save space. i love it. im going to paint it silver eventually. (or t least the top (bottom of the top) of it)

i want to do this meme, but i don't have kids. or a garage. or utility rooms. or yards.

what do i do?
do it anyway! i reworked this one because i dont have a guest bedroom or second bathroom. just pick a day per room!
my kitchen looked like a train wreck when i had kids as young as yours. it took me 12yr to get it this nice! hehe!
I may have to steal this meme.

I want to say something snarky about your chandelier (I work for a lighting store) but it goes so well with the rest of the decor.
i know rite? that chandelier wouldn't work in like 99% of other situations, but when i saw it i knew it was perfect. i DO need to replace some bulbs and rewire one of the sockets tho. also probably clean it again as spring cleaning time is coming up!
your kitchen is a work of art. i love quirky kitchens filled with fun things.

we have this in the living room. every time i am reminded of it (i almost never turn it on) i wanna cut it down with a sledgehammer

wait til you see the one we have in the dining room. its a 1980s travesty. i have to find something to replace it but finding one i like with a fan is proving tough.
also thank you!! didnt mean to be all non-appreciative there
When we finally get out of the military and own a house, this is how I want my kitchen to look. Nick would probably shoot me because he's an absolute minimalist but I love your kitchen.
Your kitchen in these photos must be the cleanest ever that I have seen.
