  1. I love your kitchen design, Lora! Thanks for sharing at Vintage Charm!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Your welcome! Thanks, Cecilia:)

  2. Lora, great tips for styling a kitchen and creating pretty vignettes. You are so right about leaving empty space. We do tend to fill up our kitchen counters. I’m constantly moving things around to free up space. I love your hutch. What a great piece for storage and display. Happy May.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Yes, it’s like relief for my eyes and brain to have some empty spaces. I love the pretty, but enjoy it more when there’s some empty to balance it:)

  3. I can’t tell you how much I love your sweet kitchen Lora. Of course you know how I feel about vintage and fresh flowers! I always love to see what you’re going to do each season. Thank you for the inspiration, this was so much fun to read.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks for your sweet words, Kim! We can never have enough vintage and flowers, definitely!

  4. Loved the very first sentence in your post. It’s so true! My hubs and I were talking 2 days ago about clutter. He said something that I’d never really paid attention too. He said the difference between us is that he doesn’t like things cluttered but likes things convenient and I don’t mind digging things out over and over to keep things cleared and put away. I suppose he’s right. I like the pretty stuff out. Love your kitchen and not sure why you thought it wasn’t going to be a great post – it was! Great tips and lovely photos. Thank you for joining us. Pinned!

      It turned out better than I initially thought;) And yes, my hubs prefers to stuff things away just to see some clear space and I don’t want to put it away until I know it’s in the “right” place. I also like my behind-the-scenes spaces (drawers, cupboards) to be pretty, too. Each to their own!

  5. I simply adore your kitchen Lora! I always love how you incorporate all your gorgeous vintage finds into your decor. And your hutch is amazing!

      Thanks, Michelle! It was so fun to see everyone’s kitchens!

  6. Lora, your kitchen is beautiful!!! And I just want to stay there (probably WHY the 6’tall young men want to hang out there and munch ALL.THE.TIME, lol!!! ;)’ Okay, then I want to go outside and explore your yard… Look at springtime outside your windows! It’s green, it’s light… 😀

    Really enjoyed seeing your pretty counters and built in cabinets! I pinned, of course. 🙂

    Enjoy your lovely springtime kitchen, even with the crumbs!
    Barb 🙂

      Thanks, Barb! Yes, I think they’re pretty comfortable in momma’s kitchen! And Spring is busting out all over outside; finally!

  7. Love your kitchen Lora! It’s always a treat to see how you decorate with your vintage collections. The built in hutch look with the plate rack and glass doors is so pretty and giving me lot of ideas for when we update our kitchen. Pinning!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Wonderful! Glad you gleaned some ideas, Michelle!

  11. Your kitchen has so many wonderful elements to take in! I love the light over your sink, and that old-fashioned screen door to the yard. Reminds me of my grandmother’s house! Love it1
