Last week my husband and I finished working on the outdoor kitchen. I am so happy with the result! It's not stylish at all, but so cheerful to look at and work in. We did a lot of sawing and painting, but is was worth it. The best part was to fill the kitchen with old china and other flea market finds!
I bought three lovely second hand floral pitchers from Meander at 'Marktplaats', the Dutch equivalent of Ebay. Normally you cannot even buy one pitcher for the price I paid for three :-). The floral cups I found in a huge box filled with all kinds of china at a fleamarket. They did not have any saucers. At that time I did not know what to do with them, but found them too pretty to leave behind. The plates against the wall have little chips and cracks, and some are made of plastic (Cath Kidston, Hema). It is an outside kitchen afterall! I bought the turquoise cups and saucers and the little turquoise jug at a flemarket as well.
The garden is looking lovely at the moment. In the little glass jar you can see which flowers are in bloom in at the moment. I will show you some more pictures soon.
Jeanne and Noelle asked me about my post about 'Pearls and Flowers', which appeared on their blog role. I tried to leave a reply with Ingrid from The joys of life yesterday, but something went wrong and her post about Pearls and Flowers appeared on my blog. Still don't know how it happened. I deleted it, but I could not find a way to delete the text on your blog roll. So sorry! For the ones who are dissapointed not to have seen a post about Pearls and Flowers, which I can imagine :-), please check out Ingrid's blog, she loves them both! To all of you a Happy weekend. To all the Dutch ladies a Happy Queens Day!!
A special kiss to my uncle and aunt in Wahlwiller, who are keen followers of my blog and never miss it xxx
