To honour my Grandma Milly, I designed this apron. Like many Grandmother’s, she always had her apron on. She was a sweet lady. She always loved playing cards, riding roller coasters, and go swimming at the cottage with my sisters and I. And she always had a chocolate cake for us. Very fond memories. I thought that this sweet Milly apron is a perfect reflection of her sweet character.
This is me modelling the first sample I created of the Milly.
Happy Pink Tuesday! Did you know that according to astrological traditions in Thailand, pink is the lucky colour for Tuesday? Based on this Thai tradition, each day of the week is given a lucky colour. In fact, it is quite customary for Thai people to dress according to these colours. I can just imagine everyone in Thailand all dressed in a pretty pink today.
It’s amazing how much symbolism is tied to colours. Aside from symbolism, colour connects us to history, even political parties. Remember the Avocado green kitchens that were so popular in the 1970’s? If we were in Thailand, Wednesday would be the day to celebrate green!
But let’s think pink. How about a pink kitchen? That was the trend in the late 1950’s. I searched for a more modern take on a pink kitchen, but I have yet to find one. The one below is very feminine. According to a news article, this Chicago kitchen has not been touched in 59 years. It’s immaculate! The house was sold in February, 2015, so I imagine it has undergone some updates.
Aside from the bedroom, kitchens are one of the most used rooms in a house. It’s an important room too. We use it to cook meals to nourish ourselves and our loved ones. We also use it to entertain. Thanks to the open concept kitchen, the new modern kitchen makes it easier to host a party and be with all the guests.
The kitchen below is so pretty. I’m a huge fan of gingham so I adore the use of gingham on the ceiling. The high ceilings and open concept helps this kitchen to pull this off. I love the baskets that are casually resting on top of each other. I could cook in here any day!

As the Mad Hatter has so boldly stated…”It’s always tea time.” I agree. And for some reason, tea always tastes better in a tea cup.
This Easter, I decided to bring out my collection of tea cups. The one below is one of my favourites. I can’t remember where I picked this up from, but it sure is a beauty. Tea cups can easily turn a simple cup of tea into a very very special cup of tea. All of notes and fragrances of my chamomile tea all of sudden come alive. They dance on my tongue and fill my head with beautiful floral aromas. Ahhh! So delightful.
And of course, a little faberge cookie on the side. My hubby and I picked these cookies up this past weekend from the St. Jacob’s Market. They are so delicious. I fell in love with the shiny gold detailed frosting and gold beads, which are edible. The thought of eating gold is just so cool! (I’m not entirely sure if there is any gold, but it is a good thought!)
Hope you enjoy your Easter weekend! Spring is finally here!
