Another Week-Another Game?

Absolutely, it is!

But, my games always for real. There might time, I play for displays but most of the time, I love my real things join the fun.
This week, is my 2nd week I am not working, so I feel really a homey mum and I think, I am loving it. I can wake up whenever, do the things I didn't managed to do when I am working 8 to 5 and do the blogging. Like now... I cope up & hang up with you, ladies! Isn't it luxurious? However, I feel, I am missing something, though? The social life. For instance, meeting old & new colleagues. The chit-chats, coffee breaks, group gym/work-out, the problem solving, changing my attire everyday, in case, a meeting with clients come up and the yelling coz my trades didn't settled on time.
Ahhh... Life sometimes is so hard to cope up with. Sometimes a "bitch" but doing the things that make us happy and contented, is worth living, isn't it?

My sink & some simple things to fit the motives

I guess this is the first time I show you, ladies, how D`Box kitchen top, looks like. I have a very little kitchen but I have enough place/cupboards to hide all my knicks-knacks. My kitchen motives are red/black/white... that's the reason, I have the big red plate on the top of my windowpain and red candle. Our kitchen is always the first spot in D´Box that is a tip-top clean. If not? D´Nics, ruin my day §:-)

--- K, let's starts---
C.R. Carlström silver flatwares/double tablecloth
This silver flatwares are absolutely very swedish and manufactured in Stockholm. I purchased this set for 23 yrs. ago in an antique store. The old lady told me that this is a typical Sheffield crown and known as a 40.50 yrs old. I am adoring them. I have a dozen, from teaspoons to soup spoons.
Serving spoon, same manufacturer...
100% cotton/linen tea towel...
To you, who just came to know me, just want to tell you that I am a good modifier. Everything in handy, must modify. So, I found this tea towels and it's hand embroidered. I can't resist to buy 2 dozen. 1 in this colour and the other dozen was red and white stiches. Fantastic.. Today, I use them as my tablenapkins...
Simple centerpiece---A sign of abundancy

I am so in love with all centerpieces I/You have in your/my table. In my own opinion, this lil piece makes our celestial tables and give a beautiful ambiance with a delight dining. In this simple one, I have demounted a 2 tier cakestand and I gathered what I have around D´Box. On "top" of it lays mini pumpkins, purple sweet corns, artichoke, an egg choco and my rusty sceptre. I found they are worth joining.
Russian cut crystal glasses...
This are purchased by my russian friend. I love cuts. It looks so well carved. Perfect for my kitchen motives (again!).
My shabby chic/country dinner set
I always dream to collect this set, since awhile ago. I am loving them. Many of my swedish co-bloggers whom I know use their treasure only during special occasions. While, I am using them when I feel like using them. Friends & family started to buy when I celebrate my birthdays or Christmas. Now, my collection is almost end up.
Dinner, sallad and coffee set
Recently, I showed one of my ruffled dinner plate. Many of us who love shabby chic drools. I have 1 set of 8 for every set from dinner plates to saucers.
Upper view during evening...
And dinner is serve...Roast potatoes & carrots...
Green sallad & Cordon bleu
Can you see the serving plate edge? Roses!!! am loving them... A big plate, perfect for serving. In D´Box, we love to have real food on the table. Fresh & healthy is our motto...Always keep warm not just on winter. Keep hearts warm too...

That's all, lovelies? Hope you all have a great TTT and enjoy travelling to visit our bloggie friends. How I wish I could visit you all for real and have chit-chats...

Head-over to Lady Marty to see the all lovelies tables...

  16. Everything is beautiful. The white dishes...I am wishing for a set...of course! :) And the beautiful.
    I love the idea of tea towels as napkins and have been waiting to find exactly what I want...Napkins are just not large enough and often not the sort of fabric that is easly cleaned of stains..
    ok..LOVE it all. The sink! looks as though it would be too high for me. Most sinks are.

    Have a great weekend.

  20. You really have some beautiful things -- I am particularly taken with your Russian crystal. Just exquisite.

  21. Love your Russian crystal and your Sheffield silver...great choices for your collection. Thank you for the information about the capiz chargers/placemats. I did think that the size seemed more like a placemat, but they have a rim, verge, and indented center area like a plate. I think that's why I ultimately decided that they were plates. I wish that I could find more of them. Thank you for sharing your treasures and for stopping by my post. Cherry Kay
