Kitchen Cupboard

New JBM kitchen cupboard after a few additions including: taps, plug and drain from Sussex, new tiles from Stokesayware ( haven't decided if I am going to grout them or not) and some little wooden draw pulls to replace the brass ones. I was so hoping the tiles would fit exactly but I was half a tile off and couldn't conceive cutting one in half so....

Dentelles et Ribambelles

Just got back from Paris and it is unlike anything I ever expected. I thought it would be good, but it was grand! These are pictures of Lea Frisoni's beautiful little shop in Montemartre. We spend four hours looking for it and it was only a 10 minute walk from our hotel! The gentleman inside didn't speak any English but we managed just fine. I would smile and point, he would smile and punch a number into a calculator and show me. I would give him a big thumbs up! I walked out with some lovely things including a miniature copy of Lea's wonderful book and a handmade shoebox. The wallpaper I bought got a little compacted on the journey home but nothing that could be rectified, plus I bought lots of other goodies. What a wonderful little place, heaven on earth. Her dollhouses really do take your breath away.
