Walking through my kitchen

Hi guys.  So have you liked the little visuals of my home.  I have a few more today.  I think today I will share some of my kitchen.  Although these pictures aren't the best, you get the idea.

My bread board is from you guessed it...a yard sale.  I got it for 1.00 and the old stoneware bowl with the apples I got at a auction.  Can't remember what I paid for it, but it wasn't much.   My bread board changes daily it seems.  I just haven't found the combination for it that I like yet?  Any ideas? 
This is the top of my refrigerator.  I have a few more yard sale finds up here.  The black cabinet I picked up while in Kentucky visiting my home last summer.  It was a old white color, and I decided to paint it black.  I only paid a couple of bucks for it.  I like it much better now that it is black.   Also, under the ivy plant ( I know Nester says it is a no-no)   I have a little small stool (another one of my collections) that I picked up at a yard sale for a couple of bucks. 
Well here is one of my favorite little corners of my kitchen.  The black box was also picked up at a auction for next to nothing.  It was a ugly muted turquoise green that I had to paint it.   I also got the crock which is full of butter paddles and scoops that I have gotten at yard sales too.  Also, the brown carrier was a old tool carrier that I picked up at antique store.  I love it.  It is full of old cutting boards and kitchen gadgets.
So as you can see I love old things, but the old things that I have, I use.  One more for today....
And the last area I will share is my corner sink.  I also collect jars and this is just a small portion of the ones that I have, and again, they have come from yard sales.  I love finding a bargain.  You can't really see the yellow ware pitcher behind the faucet, but that was picked up at yard sale too, for a buck.
Who says you have to spend alot of money to be surrounded by things you love?  Not me!
Will float into the living room tomorrow.  Hope to see you then!

... and I thought the rest of the house was lovely! I really like how you decorate in early yard sale. It really is the only way to go. So many old and unique things to discover.

I just adore those old glass jars. Guess what my next project is going to be? LOL
