The workman are still doing brickie stuff in the garden this week, except when it chucks down rain, but at least the kitchen is finished. The new blinds are due to be fitted on 20 June, and then the remodelling project for the kitchen will be finished.
In my kitchen this month are things from Denmark:
This is a spoon from the antique silver setting that I inherited from my in-laws. It’s called French Lily (Fransk Lilje), designed by Christian F. Heise. It was produced in Sweden and Denmark between 1860 and 1924. As with most silver, the knives and forks are silver plated to give the piece needed strength for use. The spoons are 3-tower silver and are as light as a feather. It makes eating breakfast cereal with them quite special.
Two Royal Copenhagen hand-painted vases. These were my mother-in-law’s favourite vases.
A set of 8 Staffordshire earthenware luncheon dishes and side plates. I really love these!
Peder retired this month, and this is his retirement gift from the company. Georg Jensen (humungous) silver vase.
That’s all for this month. What’s in your kitchen this month? To join the fun, pop over the Celia’s Fig Jam and Lime Cordial blog.
