    This looks and sounds utterly divine! And, I love that I've found your blog. You mention your tiny 1960's kitchen. Do you have photos of it? Mine is just as small, but yours sounds more charming. Ha!

      Hi Christina,

      I was planning on doing just that! I'm in the process of a little mini redo and when it's complete I'll share some before and after photos.
      Cheers,
