I guess this is it, I still have little bits and pieces to add and decorate, but I will never be done with that! So here goes:
 Stove side with place setting of my new red dishes from better homes and gardens
 I got one! 30.00 for the vintage fire king bowl! The one piece that inspired the whole kitchen! And there next to it is a vintage bread box that Tanya got for my birthday.
 Built in sink, no more grout to clean, I love this solid surface stuff!! Hey and about that new faucet! I still need a dish washer valve cover in polished nickel.
 My little cutting board they made me with my counters, hanging on my rooster hook, that hook has been with me for 20 years!
My mother sent me these vintage little pans from her childhood, so retro and perfect for this kitchen!

So there you have it, my new kitchen, I love the red in the kitchen it really makes you happy in there!
Thank you to all my friends for their advice and support and gifts! But most of all Thank you to my husband Charlie, who after 24 years together, still wants to give me everything and anything I want, he continues to make my dreams come true, I love him to the moon and back, I can't wait to make him a fabulous dinner in my new kitchen!

Oh and one more peek at the photo that started it all:
