In The Autumn Kitchen

If the weather forecasters ever decide to bring on the fall temperatures, I'll be ready.
Yesterday, while the A/C was blasting away inside, I decided to set up a little hot drink station.  I've been admiring them for years and don't know why it's taken so long to get on board.

Rumor has it that our temperatures may dip into the 70s later this week.  That is music to my ears.
In anticipation, the soup pot sits ready to be filled with warming comfort foods.

While over on the table a seasonal vignette sets the tone for enjoying those comforting meals and warm drinks.

Autumn is in the air and the kitchen too.


  1. I love your Autumn cookbook on display! I have the summer book...must look for this one! Enjoy your week and nice weather! Hugs!

  2. Love your autumn kitchen, but I like your kitchen any season. Just when I thought we had said goodbye to the 70s, they are back...much better for the oil anyway, but I have had to shed my flannel shirt.

  3. I can sure understand your being ready for slightly cooler temperatures!! What a summer you've had.

    I like your idea of corraling all the drink stuff in a shallow box. Now so long ago I asked my DH to make me a box very similar to yours. I think I'll find many uses for it.

  4. The colors of your home is speaking my language!! I love the color yellow especially with a hint of blue! Very cozy and inviting
    Happy Fall to you!

  5. Its been a little cooler here.. after the HOT summer it is a bit of a relief. I love fall. but its the one season that I really hate to rush to and through! its what comes next that Im not so fond of! lol!
    I hope you get the fall weather you are craving!
    have agreat day

  6. Lovely autumn kitchen. Your home always looks lovely. : )
    We were in the 60's today.

  7. Its not cool here at all! I would love cooler temps and a pot of soup on the stove. Cannot wait for cool temps in Southern California~

  8. Hi Kim,

    I'm definitely ready for those cooler temps., too. Whew -- such a long, hot summer. Your touches of fall in the house are charming; I love your towels hanging from the oven door, and I have that Susan Branch "Autumn" book, too. Aren't her books wonderful? We have a small coffee station in our kitchen that I set up after the kitchen remodel. It works well, and I've enjoyed it. Yours looks very nice.

    Have a great week!

  9. It's very pretty and autumn looking and your table looks so inviting. Like you, I'm looking forward to cooler temperatures. It is still hot and humid here in NC. Sorry I've been missing your posts.
