During our time in Norway and now France I have found some really fun things. I have found several amazing shops lately. Between my recent purchases and things that I found while in Norway, these are most of my pieces of china. I had to take it all out of the cabinet to rearrange everything because it will no longer fit. I realized that I love all of these pieces so much and I was inspired by a friend to start using more of them around the house.
This is our coffee/tea area in our kitchen. Previously I had a basket in this spot that held all of these items, but it ended up holding a lot of other items that made it less than functional and not pretty at all. This shelf is a recent find. Can you believe that someone was throwing this shelf away? I love the new look and it works so much better for our family.
This chicken basket is from the Nobel Peace Museum in Oslo. Until last night he has had a place of honor on the shelf in our living room. Once I made the beverage area so much prettier I thought I would keep going and try and make our everyday more beautiful. Here in Europe they do not refrigerate the eggs, this took some getting used to, but now I enjoy being able to keep them out.
