Kitchen in need of an update...
This is what we bought. I was promised an expansion. The wall behind the pumpkins is the garage. Blow that out...blow the wall to the left out as well has foundation and basement for a master suit.

A rain gauge my sister gave me a few years ago.
One of our kitchen remodels. Raised the flat 7' ceiling to a vaulted 12'.
We hosted friends from Ohio over the weekend. The husband finished a 50-day cross-country bike trip yesterday at a beach on the NH coast. We had a crowd cheering him on as he arrived. Last evening we hosted them and other friends for a lobster feed. You have to show people from Ohio how to get the meat out of a lobster. :) For dessert, I had this cake made to commemorate this trip. Pleased with the way it came out and he and his wife were both thrilled.
Annie, I love seeing that kitchen and thinking about the history, the families gathered around on cold evenings, rifle over the fireplace. I cannot identify everything in the photo. Those 3-slot toaster thingies, the flat handled panel to the left of the fireplace.
Where did you get the photo? Or is that your kitchen? ;)
In Annie's photo, I see a bed warmer to the far right. Down front, two "buggy warmers", put hot coals in them, then you put your feet up on them while riding in the buggy.
It's an historic home I visited recently.

The kitchen mid-demo. The wall on the right is no more.
Annie Deighnaugh...lol...very clever.
Gino's mom and I went for a walk in the city park.
We found a painted rock 'If all you did today was hold yourself together, I'm proud of you."
I seldom use my big Canon camera, I love the pics from my Samsung Galaxy S9+, but I did get it out a couple of days ago.
This kitchen has no running hot water. The cabinets are not fancy, the A frame log can be a head bumper, but I love this kitchen! It's at our summer home on a very remote lake-has absolutely no services, just a beautiful place.
Missed posting here.
The "before" kitchen of my previous house
A couple of "during"
