Countin' Pennies: Copper Rules in New Kitchen





I reckon I mentioned that we's been wrestlin' our outdated kitchen. Who-whee, ya'll tried to cook yore vittles in a fireplace recently? Well, then, ya'' knows why it were finally time to git
us 'uns a makeover.

Above is gonna be Uncle 's own sink (Icemaker too). Ain't done yet--got some copper tiles comin' fer the backsplash to go wif' this hammered copper beauty. Now he can keep to his side of the kitchen so I can sling some hash wif'out splatterin' his smiley face.


Oh, but sweet thangs, looky looky! Heah is MAH copper sink:



Thang is, copper is antibacterial. Cleaner than stainless.


And below is a shot of whar' the dish washer is supposed to live--but had to wire and put in more water lines fer icemaker thangs...




Adjacent is the hardworkin' laundry and storage area. Heck, I been makin' cawfee out heah on the washin' machine during all this whoop-de-do! But, looky ya'll--shelves galore--floor to ceilin', so we have a plenty of stash space fer all them thangs ya don't need but think ya' do.

see--to the ceilin'!

I has a real love fer copper. Jes' love the stuff. Been amassing a fair amount of it over the years. I hangs it whar'ever I can find a spot.

It's so old world: mankind been cookin' in copper fer thousands of years.

I have some fun molds, like this fish one below what I done found in Villedieu-les-Poeles in Normandy. Yep, yore high school French is rusty, but ya's readin' it right: Village of God of the Sauce Pan. (hey Big Shamu--ya need to go thar'!)


This village dates from 14th century, an' makes its livin' on copper. They's famous fer bells--in fact, many folks went deaf durin' the Middle Ages from listenin' to the hammer blows on copper and bells.
But oh, the lovely sound of the bells! Listen:






Natcherly, they makes other thangs too--like the statue of the copper girl child at the top of this post. Originally settled by Knights of Malta on a grant from Henry 1st of England, today it is a delightful detour on the way to or from Mont St. Michel.


Well, this next resident of the kitchen ain't copper, but terra cotta thas' got a bronze wash. It came from the Paris Flea Market--it is a basket of orphan babies--ya know, like Oliver Twist, wee ones dumped on some Lordship's doorstep.



A close-up of two of the babies.


Sure wish't I could git all ya'll down heah and we'd cook it up in this kitchen wif' it's new face lift.
What ya'll want me to cook fer ya'?

copper is lovely ..
and the tolling of those bells brings back memories of living in germany ..
fer my vittles (ignoring any health issues i might have) .. i'll have some black-eyed peas, lima beans, cornbread, a freshly sliced homegrown tomato and some fried chicken ..
or .. greens, black-eyed peas, fried pork chops & cornbread ..
sigh ..
oh, and sweat tea, of course ..

moi said...

What a wonderful post! Seeing your copper pots reminds me of my mother's own collection, which brings back such fond memories. And that sink? Wow! Next kitchen of Moi's? Definitely copper all the way.

Floridacracker said...

Beautiful! Wide angle expansive views of that interesting kitchen are warranted.

Cu
later.

Edith said...

Oooh I like your new shiny kitchen! I loooove the sink. It'd be nice to have a sink like that.

K9 said...

neato sink! i love that! did you steal a bunch of copper off air conditioners to make all that stuff? im just kidding...but maybe you should add a rider to yore inshawrance policy to protect that copper.

ill have the skillet creamed corn and fish and grits with sweet tea and some of those weird black heirloom maters!

so. youve had your kitchen redone. and you and uncle are still together? amazing!

Cu2 said...

I love copper too. Even carried some back from Paris myself.
Not real fond of the constant cleaning though-do you have some secret weapon to keep that fancy new sink so purty and shiny and without the stains and spots that love copper so much?

Aunty Belle said...

Hey ya'll!

Foamy,

I knows youse nostalgic fer them German village sounds. Lima beans nd cornbread fer shure!!

President Moi,

(cooked fer any circuses recently? hee hee) Yore mama had copper too? well, it do conduct heat, and froth eggwhites soooo purty.

Florida Cracker
.....
.........do ya know what? I is still puttin' thangs back. Need to figger out what to jettison.

Edith, Sugar, youse the the newbie!

--welcome aboard. Happy ya likes that sink--what woman is foolish enough to swoon over a dang sink, right?

K-9,

hey hey...well, Uncle done have his own spot in the world, ya know? So he's keepin' low on this. But he loves his own sink and all the ice a hot-blooded fella can want.
I'se growin them dark Russian maters--tho some day theys Polish maters. Sliced wif the yaller ones ya git a real purty effect.



Now, folks, the BIG job is to put everythang back --I mean we got packin' boxes in the dinin' room, the buggy barn, and anywhar else thar was floor space.

First I gotta put the shelf paper...sigh, dang, I'se tired. Mebbe I doan need so much tupperware or butter molds in the shape of turkeys.. Madeline molds (sorry Proust!)or apple corers, and pumpkin gorers, melon scooper or lemon zesters..candy thermometers and nut picks...five sizes of funnels and six grades of strainers..tea infusers, cawfee confusers (to press or to drip?)tins of cookie cutters, cookie presses and cheese cloth and parchment paper, where to put this kitchen arcana...who lived in this place???

Aunty Belle said...

Cu2..

howdy! Youse heah while I'se writin.

Well, truth told, it ain't that easy to keep copper wif' that "new penny" color and sheen. Wright's Copper Cream does a good job.

Most folks let it develop its lovely patina, or ya can order it wif an acid wash that "weathers' it in advance so ya doan need no wait time fer patina to develop.

The Big Shamu said...

I am all coppery green with envy at your new kitchen. Boy are you right, I DO need to go there (and lots of other places).
Hmmm, I think I'd use one of your big copper bowls and whip up some wonderful hand whipped whip cream and go from there. The possibilities are endless.
Aunty, Rock on with your Coppery Self.

I'm a "graduate" of Home and Garden Television and I LOVE looking at remodels... especially kitchens because they are the most difficult to do and make the biggest impact on our lives when done.

I am so in love with that big old copper sink of yours.... I can't even tell you.

Now I'm thinking I need to paint my cupboards... or replace them.... and my sink's looking kinda krappy too.....

:-) Keep us updated on your updating!

Iff'n the price of Copper keeps going up, Uncle might have to shoot some looters! About 95% of Aluminum Alloys require Copper to function properly.
