Little Decorations in Our Kitchen

I can't believe how busy I am. I guess everybody is busy these days. While I was cleaning yesterday, I decided to decorate just a little part of our kitchen. Mum's cooking these days a lot. Well, mostly baking. That's not good. No, sir. She always bakes as if she has to feed the army, and everything tastes so good. Before the snow, mum and dad often went to mushroom picking. I am not a big fan of mushrooms, but when you add the right spices... Yummy! I am the only vegetarian in the family (including all my relatives and friends). I also experiment with food a lot, and miracles do happen in the kitchen. Or catastrophes. :-) Depending on how concentrated I am. My mum is a chef and I learned from her that cooking is a form of art. I just remembered Richard Gere in "Autumn in New York".  When he says: ''Food is the only beautiful thing that truly nourishes''. True. Well, for the right kind of food. I would add love to this quote. :-)
Yeah... Definitely! Love and food, my friends. :-)




Some tea cookies, tea, and some decorations...


  

Nothing is better than a hot drink on a cold winter day.




Just some gold, sparkly decorations. And red color.




Mum bought this cloth in 1986, a year before I was born. I love this doggie (not to mention the Christmas theme).




My love bought me this cute bear candle holder somewhere around last Christmas. A bear in a booth, covered with snow... It makes me think of my love when I'm in the kitchen. Maybe I should move it... Burned food is not nourishing. That reminded me, I am out of this little candles. I guess I'll have to add that to the list.




This is a last year present from our friends.  A snowglobe in a sack, with Santa on the side. I love it! :-)




Just two decorations hanging from the nobs on the kitchen cabinet. I painted this five months ago. It was a quick project. It was dark brown before.  White suits it well, I think.

Today I'll join:

    1. I like decorating the nobs. Men in the house probably don't like that, but they would never say anything! Thank you, Sherry! :-)

  5. Hi Katarina! Thanks for visiting me today. We have some things in common. I'm also a vegetarian AND I'm a Pisces! I'm always on the look-out for good vegetarian recipes and prefer to cook from scratch. I like your painted white cabinet!
