MY FAVORITE MUST HAVE ITEMS THAT WILL GIVE ANY KITCHEN THAT FARMHOUSE FEEL, COLLECTED OVER TIME LOOK!
I had a rough time in the kitchen department this week…..I was unloading the dishwasher and putting things away only to drop my truffle bowl right in the middle of the drawer that holds our plates, bowls, soup mugs, and dipping bowls. I’ve had this happen on more than one occasion but for some reason this time it hit just right and shattered or chipped several pieces.
I dont’ know about you but it’s my understanding once a bowl is chipped it can harbor bacteria in that area and shouldn’t be used any longer, so into the trash things went. It now left me with only my Corelle dinner plates and bowl still in tact.
Well I took that as a sign that it was time to replace things and get something that I really loved yet was still affordable, dishwasher and microwave safe. And as long as I was shopping I was looking for pieces that would give me that farmhouse look, and also be neutral so going with gray and white with a pop of green was the direction I was headed toward. I had no idea what was out there so I decided to hit Tuesday Morning, World Market, and Kirklands to see what I could find. All three stores are in the same parking lot so that was a bonus, I didn’t have to travel all over to find what I was looking for.
What I ended up with was 8 bowls in two different sizes, 4 soup mugs, and 6 dipping bowls, the rest of the items I had. I didn’t have to spend a lot of money but I was able to replace all the broken items in one trip and everything looks nice together again.
So if you’re looking to get the farmhouse feel these are the top things on my list that are must haves: Cutting boards, Market Bags, Gingham pieces, Lots of White pieces that can be mixed and matched, anything Enamelware, and a Signature Color (I’m going with green). Sometimes an accident can turn out quite nicely. I’m in love with the new dishes and the fun they bring to our kitchen.
