A stallholder who was giving three kittens to good homes (I forced myself not to look, otherwise I'd have taken them all...) sold me these two, slim bark cloth curtains for 1€50.
I love the pattern on them, and Ben seems rather impressed too - he likes good workmanship and I think he approves of this textured fabric, which he hasn't really seen before. I picked the rusty curtain hooks and the beautifully-stitched pleats out, and the fabric has washed and ironed beautifully. Now what, I wonder?
This isn't a very special kitchen canister but it looks a bit like some others I have so is now on display with them. It might be a useful store for plastic lids before recycling, too.Never pass up a decent mirror for under 4€, should be the motto of anyone who lives in a dark house...
And finally, a pretty lining, added rather inexpertly, to an earlier and better-made, hand-crafted box.
So it's goodbye from me, and it's goodbye from the Speckledy Hen.
