delicious desserts & old lady lace


the 'before' shot

Here's a little kitchen wall unit we've been working on. We bought it on ebay. It fits perfectly on a wall between two doorways. Mart painted it and put it up while I was away with work in February. It sat empty since then though as I couldn't decide what to keep on it. So I finally gave my pretty dessert glasses pride of place there recently. A sort of shrine to dessert glasses. A reminder to make delicious desserts for pretty glasses whenever possible.  I screwed some cup hooks into the bottom to hang measure spoons and aprons. All partners in the quest for delicious desserts of course.


It couldn't go with out some old ladyifying too and so I picked up a delicate lace trim on a recent haberdashery hunt and glue gunned it on. I think it was all the final straw for poor Martin who looked on in shock asking is there anything in the house for boys?! Sorry Mart. Just remember how good that knickerbocker glory is going to taste though!

I love the green and white too! In fact I love it so much I think I'll paint my dresser like that. Oh wait! I already did LOL!
I've just been giving out to Jay about the fact that nothing is blinkin' FINISHED in this goddamn house. Not like Sharon's lovely house. No. Not at ALL...
And now you've just reminded me that some things are! So now I'm sitting looking at my lovely green and white dresser and loving it all over again.

Thank you, dearie. x

Ciara said...

Btw. I shan't be able to visit you for a long, long time. okay? Because it would be too upsetting for you to have to look at my face as it gradually turns that exact shade of green...

That has always been my favourite shade of green. And I love the lace trim. Well done you!

Of course, I want to know what's for dessert? I'm thinking.....syllabub with strawberries and champagne?
