The Larder

I love the idea of a well stocked larder/pantry which can be seen through an open doors in the kitchen. Beautiful baskets hanging from ceiling beams, braids of onions, garlic, peppers and hanging herbs. 
Today I wanted to see what all this will look like through a door. Though the shelves will be very different. Much older deeper and going from floor to ceiling.
On the back wall of the kitchen in the center will be a fireplace surround over the cast bronze stove I made. Then on both sides, closet doors.
I was very disappointed that Tiny Ter Miniatures (Teresa Martinez) was not going to be at the Tom Bishop Show this April in Chicago. Her work is just beautiful.  I wrote Teresa when I got home and ordered three more of her canned goods. They are pictured here on the second shelf. From left to right...  A jar of cauliflower, carrots and green beans,  a jar of pears in wine sauce and sliced carrot sticks.

Taking photos gives me an idea where the holes in the collection are. I may be missing a couple of dead rabbits hanging from their back legs! ;-O Also I don't like this spiffy clean look!
