The livingroom....

This blog is for the livingroom. It is still not finished. We have to paint the walls, but still not decided wich color it is going to be.
About 15 years ago there were cows living in our room. It is a piece of the former cow-stable. I don't mind. It is now a lovely room with a lot of space. So here a few pics of our livingroom.

Starting with the gorgeous roses I've got from hubby.... Thanks hub!
I collect old glass. Our windows are pretty high and small and the glass is lovely when the sun shines through it. Only thing missing now is the sun.....
Our tiki-bar corner. Still no cocktailweather, but with the heating on.... :D I adore this little bar, and love to dress it up with vintage glasses. (I was afraid to share a behind the bar photo)
This is an old pharmacist cabinet, stuffed with some lovely 50/60/70ties pieces. I am looking for a 60ties glass cabinet to put my stuff in, but still not found one. 
Old stuff. The little car is from 1933 and I got this a few weeks ago from an old man. Thought it looked funny with the big old ship's fan.
I love this one. It was custom made for a grocery shop about 50 years ago, but they never picked it up. We bought it for the carpenters widow, because she was moving out. It has been on an attic for over 30 years. Now it is our storage space..... :)
A lovely place to watch some television. Chair is from the fifties and the smokingthingy from the 30ties.
50ties plates and a 30ties handpainted flowerpot, standing in the window.
These guys are older then I am, but still funny.

 The big table in the living room. This one is from an old resturant and the chairs are so soft. I can spent hours on this table, having dinerparty's or just reading an book.
I collect vintage camera's, and we found an old bakery's pie cabinet to put a few of them in. I still use them. Photo's are on my flickr site.
So this is a piece of our livingroom. Forgot my hanging-out sofa.... Maybe next time.
Next time I will give you a little tour in our office/craftrooms. :)
Hope you enjoyed the tour.
Hugs and kissis!

A little view of the kitchen.

Thanks to all of you sweety's who wished me all te best with my allergy. I am still not the old me, and so I have to do some tests in the hospital. Nothing to be worried about. Maybe some sun and spring will do me good. (Still snowing overhere....)
The last weeks a lot of lovely bags and dresses arrived in the mail. And we did some vintage shopping at the retro day in Belgium. Still have to give everthing a place. If there is room.... I need more storage-space..... (hoping hubby will read this....)
But for now I will give you a little tour through our little kitchen. We would love to paint the doors of the kitchen red and put a black marble countertop on it. But that is something for the future. The bathroom is first on the list.
I love to have some flowers. Mr. Skeleton is also very happy with them. :)
I adore vintage bowls. The little basket is a French clam basket and now a potato/union basket. The scale was a present from Joni, a sweet friend.
I collect vintage Ragout crockery...... The rest of the cabinet is stuffed with it.
Our fifties ice-crusher, milk-shake maker and blender. Still have to work on that milk-shake thing. It is American and there are other powersuplies then overhere in the Netherlands, so when you plug it in it will fly away...

I used some old fruit-cases to build a temporary bookshelf. I think it looks funny. :)
I love to cook, and I love to cook with all kinds of herbs and sauces. I also have a cabinet filled with lovely smelling herbs, and now with the summer on her way a lot of them grow in the garden.
We have 4 different chairs. I like them all. Don't know, it just adds some fun in the kitchen. By the way, that whale-look-like on the table..... It is our Dodge who gave us her Lolita-photo-look.
So this is our little kitchen. Next time we will take a little walk through the living room. :)
Hope you enjoyed it.
Hugs and kissis!
