Not just left on the shelf…
The expression “On the shelf” usually has sad or negative connotations – but not in this instance – Eventually we got a place where we can display our mugs! I had been wanting such a unit for a long time, as, you surely have noticed, I love our mugs, and I do find pleasure in looking at them (and using them of course!) . Much better than having them hidden inside a cupboard! Kevin spent some time thinking how he could ‘adapt’ the back of some of our new kitchen units in order to show our mugs off, and this is the result.
Some of you will surely recognise “their mugs”… Susan, Shelley, Comtessine, Rainer… thanks again to all of you for sharing our love for mugs or/and the lovely gifts which are now proudly standing in our new unit!
I thought I would also show you what our new kitchen looks like… it is not finished yet, there is a lot of little jobs to do for the kitchen chef Kev Moore, but we are slowly getting there… Where Kevin is sitting- you can’t really see it on the photo- , the breakfast bar has the shape of a Gibson Explorer guitar … Kevin (who else!) made the pattern in cardboard, our carpenter – who already did such great works for us and whose son Macauley has exhibited some of his art work in The Minibar) cut the wood. and now we are waiting for some black and white mosaic tiles to cover it… We’ll show the result when it is finished!
… and on this side of the mugs unit, is our office, with our desks and computers, on which we write to you all, dear Cafe Cremers!
