When we moved in our new house in July, I was so excited about the kitchen. It was totally different than any kitchen I had ever had in the past. I loved the rustic look of the cabinets and many other special elements, one being the light fixture/pot hanger. I must admit though that I am not a fan of hanging every day pots and pans above my head. To me, everyday cooking would be a inconvenience if the pots were on display. I much prefer my pots and pans in a cabinet. I did, however, want to utilize the pot hanger in some way, at some point. Then one day a few months ago, I received my new issue of Delta magazine. The most beautiful kitchen was featured in this month's edition. It seemed to be my kitchen on steroids..... it is amazing!!! Much more glamorous and worthy of a magazine spread than my much more "homey" kitchen, but you can still see similarities (one being the beautiful cypress cabinets). I noticed immediately the pots in the pictures and I knew that I wanted to start a collection of copper pieces for my kitchen. I thought they would be the perfect finishing touch for my kitchen.

A few weeks ago, my friends Lynda and Diane and I went antique shopping. Lucky for me, we found a booth in a local shop that had lots of wonderful, old copper pieces. Lynda and I both bought a few pieces. I was so excited about them!!! Unfortunately for me, the pieces that I bought were too long for the pot rack. The good news though is that my husband and I went back the next day and exchanged them for smaller pieces. I was off to a great start! The next week Jon and Seth and I were out running errands and Jon suggested we stop by the antique store again. Woo Hoo!! We found two more pieces that were perfect. Now my pot rack is filled! I love the finished product!!! What do you think?
The afternoon sun made taking pictures a little difficult.
I really love these pieces - they are so old and really have character!
Thanks for visiting Buttercup Bliss!
