collections in kitchens.

i have been looking for a house to buy since january. i've looked at a ton online and a ton in person. i saved these two photos of someone's kitchen on my computer desktop about 2 months ago and decided to finally post about them. i never looked at the house (can't remember why) and unfortunately i can't tell you whose house this is (located somewhere in the kansas city vicinity).

the first thing that stood out was the red table and chairs...i have these too! but mine are sparkly red like a carnival ride. second the souviner plate collection.

i really do love the way the plates are displayed.
and the sheer number of them is appealing.i ended up finding a house this past week. it happened oh so quickly...saw the house around 11am, made another visit around 1pm. 2:30pm the offer was made and 3pm the offer was accepted! i am excited and freaked out at the same time. the kitchen is much different than this one, but i have already started to mentally plot out how to display my collections.

congratulations meredith! i have sparkly red table & chairs too :) -- can't wait to see what your kitchen will look like. i'm a nerd about these things. ours is currently feeling the wrath of my dad unloading a winter's worth of ceramics while passing through town this weekend...
