Hi guys, not a good start to the new year for me as I had gastric flu (great way to lose weight!).   Hope yours has been better.  I've taken the Christmas decorations down so we're back to the tour of the French style house.  Here's the kitchen as it is now...



...I think I need some pictures and maybe a rug to 'warm' the room up a bit...



...the kitchen sink was plain wood which I stained and painted to make it look old.  I did the same with the plate rack and the table and chairs...



...the french food safe was made from a kit by Jane Harrop and then stained blue and sanded to look old...


...the enamel pots and pans were originally cream and dark green but I painted over the green with a french blue to match the food safe...



...on the drainer you can see a coffee grinder by Jane Newman and a little basket from Zara Ribeaud Thompson...


 



 ...on the aga sausages and eggs are cooking and the table is set for a simple breakfast...


...and the Schnauzer made by Annie Willis is waiting for his share... (I have two real life miniature schnauzers, Alfie and Oscar)...


And more baskets from Zara, I love her work don't you?
