Wouldn't you think that will all that is happening in our lives here at the moment that I would just not even think about changing my kitchen sideboard..............but it is always a way to relax for me......but THEN it leads to other things like the cutlery draw and the pots & pants cupboard. O! yes very good for the soul doing a kitchen change around.
The summer look on my sideboard was Johnson Brothers Jamboree dinner set that belonged to my grandmother. She only had a few pieces left when she passed away but still I just loved them so much and had to add to the settings over time, until now I can seat at my summer table ALL! the family each with their own favourite colour. My colour growing up and growing to grans to visit was the Burgundy and still to this day I simply must eat from that colour.
Today all that has changed and now I look at my sideboard and see the most wonderful scenes from the pattern called Johnson Bros Friendly Village.
I was shopping on line one day and looking at pieces that had covered bridges from New Hampshire on them and I came across the friendly village set "well! was I hooked" the different scenes and the beautiful snow scape's showing the bridges covered in the winter snows of New Hampshire................I started to collect and now also have enough to serve my whole family that is 21 settings, I may have to still add to that but gosh! I will just have to do it!! couldn't have a grandchild missing out on a "covered bridge"
So my sideboard for winter looks like this! (smiles)
I could have a Spring and Autumn change as well! I have them as well BUT! that is another story for another day.
My darling husband is doing well we are however waiting to see the surgeon next week as the school holidays are on here at the moment and he apparently went away with his family. Rob is feeling very uncomfortable but is looking forward to next week and the time the operation will be set for.
Our new darling grand daughter and her family are doing wonderfully and she is a good little sweetie for her mum, her smallest big sister is only 19 months old so is taking this all very well. Our daughter is back home and putting into place a routine now for her big family. We are so proud of them and Love them all.
This is my Friday! Not at work! not even made the bed yet!!!
but loving being "home" pottering!
Thank you all for the kind comments and wonderful emails in the past week I adore hearing from you all very much.
