And also....

Emma Waddell asked  on one of the FB groups members of the group to post photos of their kitchens there.

Which led me to view my Kendrew House first. I had to put in some recently acquired porceleain, anyway. While photographing, though, I saw not only layers of dust (still in situ I am afraid , grin), but also several appliances etc that had fallen on the floor or such , so some  reorganisation was sorely needed.

So I did that . What with taking pics etc took quite  a lot of time, actually. Anyay, I do have updated pics of the three kitchens now: one scullery, one kitchen, one "nice" kitchen ( where personnel also rests, as you can see, and the butler has his writing desk ).

The scullery :

Right corner 

Kitchen :

Nice kitchen:

That took a long time. But I finally finished the chest from a kit by Arjen Spinhoven today . It's not perfect , mind you , but OK..... as best as I can do.

                                 Maybe do some more mini-ing, well I do hope so.

Long time no see

I had some busy months , however and rather sad.
In March ( March 15) I had to take leave of Jojo, my big red kitty, who has been with me since about 17 years . She was a yong stray, wandering around the hospital where I worked and I adopted her. Although she was scared and grumpy during the first years she was with me, she became a really cuddly cat who could purr loudly . I really do miss her .


                                                     Here are two pics of her :

                               This one I made when she had snatched a nice Amazon box - too small, so a                                                                perfect fit in her kitty thoughts !

       This one was made last summer , while she was basking in the sun on my balcony.

        And within 5 weeks on April 25, my poor Fluffy also went over the Rainbow Bridge.                                                
                                         This pic was taken when she was still a young kitty.


                                        And this is the very last pic I took  of him, poor little guy.

Tiffany and I do miss them both  !!!
Goodbye little friends.
