Views from my kitchen counter. Where I am most of the time.
Brocantes finds take center stage. Recycling at its best.
Silver utensils in a mustard pot, yes that one chunk mustard pot. The French had a thing for mustard there is no denying when you see the mustard pots.
Silver is a good buy at the brocantes. When buying it make sure the joints are solid and the silver is not worn off. Most people do not buy it because they thing it is too fancy or too much upkeep. I use it everyday. If you use silver it does not have time to tarnish.
Creil pottery stained from usage.
Before jars, plastic, before throw away... before buying things pre-packaged...
A household had to have a great deal of pottery to store food.
A glass measuring cup from the 1900s
One of my favorite pieces.
The glass measuring cup has etched markings.
Do you like silverware?
What kitchen things do you collect? Do you use it?
A clown mustard jar, isn't it darling.
The pitcher use to hold lamp burning oil.
The painting, Yann calls her Eglatine.
Eglatine is in our kitchen.
Her eyes follow us.
Sacha painted the kitchen green for me in January.
An old wooden scorekeeper board, with pharmacy jars and the word menu made in metal.
