Fruit




I found these fruit scraps from when i lived in a big old house when i was married. These fruits helped me to design my kitchen, which was in the style of an old country kitchen. I loved the colours and managed to find tiles which matched perfectly. I desinged an old style cabinet to hold a belfast sink and got my husband to re create an old deep chimney effect to house the cooker. We had a huge, really huge mantle shelf put above it which was only about 14 inches from the ceiling
and i found some fab old paintings at the auction rooms which just finished off the kitchen. There were still some plans in mind for other adaptations but sadly there was no time to complete them before we divorced. I thought it was time to use these scraps up instead of them just being in the drawer.
