Tuesday Snippets


I was in a red and pink day mood, yesterday! This is not unusual
;-)



This calendar pad ,which I found on Saturday, inspired me.



To make some colourful photo layouts!!



With a summer theme...




I also made some little needle cards...






Now for the boring bits...on Sunday I gave the kitchen a spring clean!!




As I took everything off the surfaces, dear Mr S said how lovely was the minimalist look!





Me, being a fripperies lover...quickly put it all back again!





As I cleaned , mop in one hand, camera in the other ;-)...I snapped my favourite 'fripperies'....




The other day,another blogger mentioned their Dualit toaster..well I can honestly say it is one of our best kitchen buys ever!

And I love red in my kitchen..hence the new bread crock!

I adore these 1950s Alfred Meakin designs.


My Babbacombe Pottery cockerel



Little Pedro!


And..
A touch of the French look.

And...I've had this tea cosy for years..my mum brought it back from one of her travels to Europe...


I'm having a day off today.I'm going to a family gathering, as my dad is 83 years young !

Have a good day everyone!

Hope your dad has a wonderful birthday today! It's my Grandma's 80th today coincidentally.

Your kitchen looks fab, it's nice to see some more of Snippet land! It's me getting a Dualit toaster, and I can't wait!

Your kitchen looks fabulous - I have to agree though that "stuff" makes it look even better!

Such a pretty post. Your kitchen is so fresh and lovely. I would love to sit at your kitchen table and drink a cup of tea!

I love your kitchen. I should love one as large as that with a range cooker, but I must be satisfied with what I have - at least there is room to have a small table and the Neff double oven is excellent even if it doesn't look as nice as a range (but then, I'd not want to have to bend over to reach things in an oven which reaches to the floor!) I don't have space for fripperies, sadly, and I can't persuade my husband that a coat of paint would cheer up the 1980s wood, but really, it's fine - it's a genuine 1980s kitchen; perhaps it will soon have a preservation order slapped on it as the only 1980s kitchen in our Close!

I have always suspected that your colour was pink - now I know that is true. Your kitchen is alive with it! Lovely. And Happy Birthday to your Dad too.
