Kitchen Poetry V


A corner in my kitchen.
That old jug and mug was bought by my husband 20 years ago. The mug lost her handle already, as you can see, but I like it so much even so.
It's a nice thing to have in a monarchic house, as ours is, because it represents the portuguese coat of arms with the crown.
The flowers, which I like very much, come from a bush and are called "sempre noivas", translating "always brides", maybe because of their nice white.

Lovely! I've always loved the blue & white pottery. And our Portuguese symbol still brings chills to me.

I've been enjoying your kitchen over the past few days.

The blue and white stoneware is lovely. It looks so fresh even tho it is probably quite old. I now know what the Portugues Coat of Arms. And the fresh flowers always make the everyday nicer. And why not?

I loved your grandmother's handiwork and the sweetness of her gift to use everyday. My grandmother crochet also, and my girls love their Babcie blankets.

You've inspired me to show off my favorite kitchen spots!

God Bless and thank you for sharing!

Please forgive my type-o's. I shouldn't comment when tired.

You are ok. What to say, then, about my bad english?
