KITCHEN LOVE contest is on, round 2!!

 Yes my blog has gone crazy today, in case you are wondering why it looks like it does..don’t ask. YOU HAVE NO IDEA. I promise I am working fast and furious behind the scenes to “make this right” and assure you this was not part of the plan, its been C R A Z Y! Just happy the post is back up and my contest is working so please pardon the disarray of my blog and be assured it will soon be a pretty place again!

Hi there, thank you so much for your participation from round one (around a whopping 1200 votes)!!! Are  you ready for even more beautiful kitchens? Think you can handle it? Here we go with round two……the beauty just continues. I got in such  a wonderful assortment, from a tiny but super charming kitchen in a 500 foot cottage, to someones brand new dream kitchen that  they waited 10 years to build to a wonderful 100 year old kitchen area of a family’s Maine cottage to a beautiful kitchen in France….what fun to see them all! From cozy and small to grand and elegant, there is something for everyone!

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! Just gorgeous, a favorite from this batch will be crowned and then we will have a final showdown of the two top picks (one from each round). Ready to take it all in?

 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…….

KITCHEN LOVE round 1 is on!!

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!
