Welcome Home- The Country Breakfast Nook

Welcome Home

~The Country Breakfast Nook~

Combining a little vintage with new always works!  Breakfast nooks are simply delightful and allow you to put a fun spin on your eating space.  This week let's create a bright yet nostalgic little corner of your home.

Vickie Wade of VickieWadeFineArt offers breathtaking oil paintings and giclee prints.  Have a look at her three good lookin' girls, I am sure they will have plenty to say when you start cracking your eggs first thing in the morning!

Hang this painting on the wall across from where you sit so you can enjoy it each and every day as it catches first light.

Find a small little accent table to place close to your sitting area, something to hold your toaster or bagel maker.  This little upcycled piece from Kathy of cottageshabbyshack is just perfect and even has a small storage area, ideal for holding your favorite cups and saucers!

Now that your toaster is conveniently placed,  select a neat little cover that will keep it clean until the next morning.  I love the available choices from PatsysPatchwork.  Being the country gal that I am and keeping with a "country farm theme" Pat's rooster covers offer great colors and scream brand new day...

Ah, the covered bowl your food vehicle...scrambled eggs kept warm!  Andrea of RedHillHome vintage shop offers terrific finds for the nostalgia lover.  Look at this great American made white bowl...

This bowl is so nice, you could use it as a centerpiece on your nook's table...working vintage!

While working on this weeks finds I came across an awesome little shop that gave us all somewhere to sit while enjoying our first cup of java or tea.  Take a look at this fabulous duo from Debbie of MeritageMart...

Let's recap...the hens have laid your eggs, the side table is ready to serve, you've just removed the toaster cover, the bowl is filled to the brim and you need to sit and eat.  You are ready to begin your day. Yet wait, it is still only 7:00 am, plenty of time to check out all the new listings posted by your Ingenuity team mates......oh what a glorious day!

Until the next room,
