A Happy Place Kitchen.....

I do love eating food..... and sometimes I even have fun making it... but I do find I need to fill the kitchen with things that make me happy... 

(due to pressures from society it sadly cannot ALWAYS be alcohol)

Back in February I had a birthday and my gift from Shez went missing in the post (tears)

A lovely little replacement parcel arrived from Shez to help happify my kitchen...


Shez does beautiful work and hand made the linen cloths too.... 

... so lovely...


this little groovy gal also makes me happy in the kitchen...


... so does my scissor hanger...
(I wished I'd had one of these when my children were still at home!)


I also have some gecko's keeping me happy in the kitchen...


.. and of course my new beer rug. um, wine rug..... I mean mug rug


I am such a convert for those kitchen towels with the loop over the oven handle...


... happiness in the kitchen... that's what I need....


Righto, Gotto Go... could be spending a bit of time in the kitchen Happy Place today.... thank you so much Shez.... very special

What's your kitchen like???????????

I call my kitchen the dungeon!
most of the time it's solitary confinement too unless there is food on the table! Then they could be in a coma and they would still rise up and come to the table.
love all your kitchen beautifulness.
looks like a very welcoming kitchen

How lovely that Shez replaced the lost parcel. And I hope that someone who deserved it has "found" the lost one. Got to have a cheerful kitchen, and your new gifts help to create that.

A mess is what I call my kitchen! With 3 teenage boys who are forever hungry, the kitchen is never clean. But I just can't kick them out ... I still love them LOL. I would LOVE a kitchen facet that has red wine on the left tap and white wine on the right tap. Yeah sound nice!!
Just love what your friend did for you. Such a talented lady. Love the geckos too.

What a great kitchen get lots of good treats come out of there. That Shez sure is one clever girl that towel is lovely.

What a pity your first parcel went missing. Who knows, it may still turn up one day! It was lovely of Shez to make you another set. It does look lovely hanging in your kitchen. My kitchen always seems to be messy. On housework day, the bench is clear and everything looks lovely until about 4pm (10 minutes after we get home from school)! LOL! At least I get to see it looking lovely for a few hours. Needless to say, by the time Noel gets home, the bench is covered!

Cheryll said...

Mine is a happy place too as I have one of Shez's originals as well!
Such a nice thing to do...ahhh Shez...we love her! :)

My kitchen is a busy place. It's not the prettiest part of our home by a long shot but it's functional and a little prettier now because I have one of Shez's famous tea towels too.
I loved having a peek at your kitchen today Fiona. very nice.

Christine said...

What gorgeous gifts! Your beautiful clean kitchen is a perfect backdrop!

I brought some of those geckos home from Australia. I haven't decided where to put them yet. They are so cute.

Jane Galley said...

What lovely accessories to add to the kitchen, such a shame the first parcel from Shez went AWOL

Narelle said...

Would be more than happy to spend time in your lovely kitchen ... mine on the other hand?
Perhaps if Manu Feildel graced my kitchen I'd be happy to stay :o)

Love the scissor holder. Great post

Our kitchen is a place where we all seem to congregate, chat and enjoy each others company, better than being left to cook evening meals alone. Your kitchen looks very colourful with some lovely special things, love the gecko's
