Kitchen Completion and Beautiful Art

It was a long weekend for Colin, Lauren, Steve and  I.  I apologize.  I was tired when these pictures were taken.  The kitchen is done except for a few finishing touches.  I am now looking forward to gathering friends and family to enjoy it!  Here is a shot of the bar before with Colin working on it

Here is what it looks like now with  those fabulous Wisteria stools

I am even loving the countertops now that all is complete. I like the chalky textural look of them.


Here is a photo of the "cows" with some vintage shutters that I purchased from Capitol Salvage

Here is a sampling of some beautiful paintings from my friend and wonderful artist  Pat Huber
If you stay at Villa Cantina you can view and/or purchase some of her work.  You can also go to her website at pathuberfineart.com to view all of her current offerings.

Here is a sampling of her work.  I am coveting this one

I can see it right here

  I check her website weekly so I can drool over her latest works.  I love this one of Moss Landing Harbor as well

  And this one....

 This vineyard painting found a home in our wine room at home.  She has many lovely vineyard paintings on her website

 And this painting is of our beloved dog Bridger who passed away this past year

 I will leave you with her beautiful paintings I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!


  1. Congratulations to all of you for getting the kitchen done....it looks great. And I love the shutters up with the cows...the whole thing looks so inviting.
    I love that Pat is doing vineyard related paintings. She never ceases to amaze me.
