Little Miss looked at me as I was some sort of fool and said "Seriously, mum, no-one cares."
Little does she realise that my readers do care about such things. Don't you? (Don't let me down now will you?).
But before I show you a pic of said kitchen sink (I really know how to ramp up the excitement don't I?), I had a good old snoop round Marianne's house and took a few pics. Just for you, dear readers.
Cute stag head in pink downstairs loo:
Cute lock on toilet door:

I've always lusted after these Jielde floor lamps. Sadly, they're really expensive and I am, as you know, a complete skinflint.

I should have taken a photo of this Agfa (what the hell is it??) light box thingy when it was lit up:
Another pretty floor lamp:
I love these handy storage canisters in the kitchen:
Nika is their daughter:

I adore this vintage wallpaper which they bought from a well known vintage wallpaper shop in Ghent, Belgium:
The wallpaper shop in Ghent which I visited a number of years ago. It really is stuffed to the gunnels with rolls of to die for wallpaper:
And now, for the kitchen sink:
Sadly, not the best of photos but it's pretty fabulous is it not? A blue and white tiled kitchen sink: what's not to adore?
Who'd have thought that I'd be lusting after a kitchen sink for Gawd's sake? Aaah, the thrills and spills of my little world.....
Actually what was genuinely thrilling was winning the Vanilla Squirrel's giveaway in the summer:
|This is an adorable squirrel pin cushion (Cath Kidston if you please) which is currently on display in our front room as it's far too lovely to be put away in our sewing box.|
