RFC kitchen tour: Erin's

I love the idea of welcoming you into our kitchens because my kitchen is one of my favorite places in the world, with all of its windows and good smells and life.  When I moved into my 1928 bungalow nine years ago, my kitchen was super tiny- there was only room for a Barbie stove and a play refrigerator.  Over the past several years, I have been able to expand into the former screened porch (also too tiny to be any fun) and make a happy, bright space to live and work.
All of the tropical plants take refuge here during the winter. 
My workspace.  See the giant holly tree right outside of the window?  Someone carved their initials (with their sweetheart's) in it long before I moved in.
My constant companion and premier dishwasher, Clyde.
My baking station.  And more plants!
Farmhouse sink from Ikea and Paperstone countertops.  Plus, a pass through to the dining room.   The cabinets, backsplash and shelving as well as the pass through were all made by Shannon's husband Matt.  He is most talented.
Open shelving to keep well used items in easy reach.
Bookshelf just for cookbooks.  
The stove, spice rack and window into the pantry.
