SUMMER BREAK..... OLE !


We'll be leaving on Saturday night, until August 29th or 30th...



I wish to THANK YOU all, for your kind visits and comments on my blog.

Though I slowed down my postings this year,
your friendly interest never failed,
and I'm so grateful :>)


You can still post here, or email me while I'm away, as I'll be able to check my mails
in some local Internet point... which means I'll be watching you also ! HeeHee



Have a wonderful time,

Sew a lot... one stitch at a time,

ENJOY every moment !



Though I'm so happy going back to our little Spanish eden,

I'm sure I'll be missing you...

AT LAST !

Two years ago, we decided that after 26 years good service, our old kitchen deserved some remodelling. So we started saving money for that project, and visited many show rooms and local manufacturers...

We finally chose a local carpenter, specialized in wooden kitchen furnitures, running his business as a family affair. That wonderful man spent some evenings at home, his first questions being : "do you like cooking ?" and "would you opt for a "parade kitchen", or a "laboratory kitchen" , or an "easy living, heart of the home, kitchen" ?

That's how that wise craftsman won our hearts (and wallet! LOL)...
Our house is a small cottage in the country, and he took advantage of every space available, taking into account our lifestyle and habits. He drew plans, changed them as often as needed, calling the project "our baby", asked his wife (a nice, wonderful housekeeper) to come with him and she gave some wonderful advises, like a mother would have to her daughter...
And so, on last 3rd July, we started taking off the wallpapers,

emptying all cupboards (decluttering !),

and went

FROM THIS...

(OMG, what a mess !)






TROUGH THIS....


(OMG, that dust everywhere !)






New lovely Italian tiles...



Our carpenter, checking everything...

(When that nice man heard that our old kitchen was going to the Goodwill, he immediately proposed to bring it there, and install everything for free. So now, our "old Lady" is starting a new life in a good place :>)


TO THIS...




(Christine, this one is for you :>)


SO NOW, MY FRIENDS, WOULD YOU COME

AND HAVE A CUPPA' WITH ME ? :>)



Thanks for your visit.

Next post will be quilty, hopefully !
