Many of you have asked where my extensive blogroll has gone...I was hoping you could tell me! Seriously, I am making some changes to my blog (soon to be revealed) and hoping that loss is temporary......otherwise will be re adding them, one by one, seems to be a common theme this week:)
Hello and happy Sunday, I am so happy to present my KITCHEN LOVE contest!! Not without some major hiccups however, somehow blogger (after collecting pictures for the last almost 3 weeks) lost my entire post!!!!! I was freaking out, as it meant having to start all over again, talk about time consuming, to go back to each and every email.....arrrgggghhhh!!! It was worth it though and having everyone put Kitchen Love in the subject line was a huge help. So I am back in business! I have divided this into two rounds with nearly 140 pictures it was too much for one. One winner will be crowned from each round then we we will have one final showdown between the two.
Many here are magazine worthy, a testament to the taste level of my readers, I had an absolute blast getting to peek into all of your homes....so thank you for allowing us in! Just gorgeous and certainly proof that the kitchen really is the heart of the home. I can imagine the meals, get togethers, conversations and memories that have all been made in these wonderful kitchens! If by chance you are in the market for a new kitchen or a kitchen remodel, this is the absolute best idea source I can imagine:)
Remember- everyone was allowed to submit two pictures, some submitted almost the identical picture which is fine so dont' think you are seeing double. Some of my readers have also had published kitchens so if one or two look familiar you might know why:) A few had their homes professionally photographed, that is fine too as long as it's their kitchen. Do not panic if you do do not see your kitchen here, the other post has the rest (they were added in the order they were submitted). Just want to set the record straight.....enjoy all the beauty!
Now its the hard part! Time to vote for your three top faves, get out those pens and paper and put on those thinking caps....
Wow, so many to love...I love how there is truly a little bit of everything, from tiny and oozing with charm to very grand and overflowing with elegance, I think this post exemplifies that the kitchen is where "it all goes down"!
So, now it's your turn to vote for your top 3! This poll will close on Monday night (2 full days of voting). Round 2 will start on Tues and run until Wed. night. at which time the two top kitchens (one from each round) will go into a faceoff on Thursday, a winner will be crowned on Friday morning, Valentines Day!
Many thanks for all who sent in their wonderful pictures and to all the readers who are stopping by to participate in the voting....loves these contests!! Wishing everyone a wonderful and relaxing Sunday, you guessed it, more snow is on the way (but a lot less than what was originally predicted) so I am not going to complain...until tomorrow!
