I can’t find one thing in this kitchen that I don’t love – check out the awesome La Cornue stove & vent, the huge wood island (doesn’t it look like a giant piece of furniture), the gorgeous rustic wood flooring, and whatever that is on the ceiling.
The gorgeous windows and mirrored corner cabinet are the icing on the kitchen cake.
I have no idea where these pictures originated. I keep hitting dead ends every time I do a search. If you know the source, please let me know so I can link them up properly.
Best. Pancakes. Ever.
Just in time for Pancake Tuesday – Janet & Greta Podleski’s Lemon Ricotta Pancakes with Blueberry Sauce are the best pancakes I’ve ever had. They taste even better when hubby makes them :-) These two ladies work some serious magic in the kitchen. If you don’t have their cookbooks, go out and buy one or two or all four. The Looneyspoons Collection is their latest and probably their best book.
PARA Paints Potion
If you read my blog last week or follow me on Facebook, you know I’ve been trying to choose a paint colour for the loft. PARA Paints Rainy Skies ended up the winner (although it wasn’t even in the running till Saturday). But I’m seriously in love with the runner-up, Potion. The only reason I didn’t choose it for the loft is because it’s probably a tad bit too dark. These are the three finalists – from left to right Potion, Ageless Rockies, and Rainy Skies.
But Potion is still going to make its way into the loft – here’s an in-progress peek at a little project I’m working on… (do you like my flowery drop sheet? :-)
I fell in love with this painting by Susan Bailie as soon as I saw it on her Art Walls Facebook page. And now it’s sitting on my purple cabinet just waiting to be hung on the wall above it :-) I tried to get a good picture, but the camera just can’t capture the amazing texture and depth and sparkle from the foil.
And hopefully later today or tomorrow, I’ll be adding our newly painted loft to my list of favourite things – pics coming soon!
