And this is my story.
There was an Old Women who lived in a shoe in 1992.
Sweetheart and she remodeled their kitchen and bought a beautiful convection/microwave oven.
Over the years the microwave lost some power while reheating or melting liquids.
Finally in 2012 the microwave blew its fuse and the fan and light stopped working.
Now, I have a brand new microwave.
Going to Microwave heaven
This is my brand new microwave
There is more to the story about the new microwave. On Tuesday, sweetheart and I bought the microwave. Wednesday, sweetheart, a friend and I installed it over the stove. Good Job sweetheart!
When installing the NEW microwave I noticed some grease on the copper molds above the stove.
Oh my gosh!
Something must be done! I think we need to wash the Cabinets! Yes!
Thursday sweetheart went golfing
While washing the cabinets. The counter and shelf was cleared off. I washed the tile on the counter, and I washed my collection of L. E. Smith Canisters on the shelf
I have always loved copper molds and have been collecting them for years.
I was very fortunate to go to dinner at
The French Laundry
owned by famous chef
Thomas Keller in Yountville, Ca
The clothespin was pinned to the napkin.
What a great experience!
I washed and washed and washed.
I love my roosters. The Rooster is the French Kitchen Icon. Read more about the Rooster Here
This white beauty is my dish towel holder. He has been next to my sink since 1975.
I decided to make a collage of the molds. I have a few...
I have a new love. Cloches...Thank you Mary @ A Stroll thru Life I would have a cloche is every size and every shape. Collecting is great fun and I love to change things around in My French Country Kitchen.
I found a copper chafing dish at a garage sale and scooped it up in a heartbeat.
A little vignette of my Rooster Tea Pot with a sugar and creamer sits on my small table, and a small copper cup with a rose from the garden.
Now for the Crème de la Crème
My pillows add some french inspiration to my French Country Kitchen.

un bel endroit
A beautiful place
Famille et Amis
Family and Friends
La Maison Moderne
The Modern House
So much for my French...
The kitchen-dining room is large enough to entertain our family. When the table is open it will seat 12 people. I have a red and white vinyl tablecloth on the table to protect the wood finish. Since retirement, all sweetheart and I do is eat. Three meals a day. I have the salt, pepper and napkins on the red Lazy Susan in the center of the table so I don't have to keep getting up every time we need something. I see the word Lazy!
On Saturday morning sweetheart mopped and waxed the floors.
My version of a French Country Kitchen is now clean for the holidays.
If your new here at My Cozy Corner or you are a follower you know I love to imagine I'm somewhere else. France would be nice. So how about some French Cuisine
Our neighbor has a fig tree and gave me some figs. I love figs. Reminds me of the Mediterranean region.
A Galette is a type of french pastry that is made with a rich, flaky crust, and traditionally served at Epiphany 6 January each year.
I serve Fig Galette with triple vanilla ice cream and whipped cream in the evening for a late dessert.
