On the kitchen table…

On the kitchen table today… stripey carnations that take me back to Great-grandma Charlotte’s garden of her small house at Wynnum, where the breezes smelt like the sea (and the muddy flats if the tide was out). 😊

She was a wonderful scone baker and always had a pot of tea covered in a hand-knitted tea cosy on the kitchen table. Love how one flower can bring back memories from many decades ago.

Hope you have a lovely day! 💛

On the kitchen table today… rose e limoni

On the kitchen table today… roses and lemons from a friend’s garden. (With glorious fresh, crisp and sweet musky scents!) The vase came from Nanna Francesca’s ‘good cabinet’ and was a bonbonniere from a 1970s or 80s Italian wedding. (Some will remember those!) It’s fairly solid – perfect for carrying home after at least nine hours of wedding celebrating! Have a lovely day. 😊 Zoe xx
