Vide-grenier

One of the pleasures also of coming to a home restaurant is that not all the crockery, cutlery and glasses will match. It is not standard catering fare. I've been collecting kitchenalia from France and elsewhere for many years. It's one of my many fetishes!

Today I popped into Scope and several other charity shops nearby to replenish my stock of glasses. I got a few cute things, a little pink milk jug for £1.50p, four large soup bowls for £2, three attractive glasses for £1.70p, a silver tea strainer for £1.50p.

I found this dresser on the street in Paris. Love the colour.

I made this shelf myself.

  1. I love your home, it's so beautiful. Once there it's easy to forget how close to central London one is, with the 'country hideaway' atmosphere.
