Our friend Henk (a.k.a. The Cabinetmaker) made a kitchen for Grace’s birthday- it has been in constant use for the two weeks since (and not just our little girl…). I love it, I love that is is Irish, local, hand-made. I love the little details, and I love that there is storage behind those curtains! (needless to say: Henk would be more than thrilled to receive any commissions for a project like this; what a great Christmas pressie for any child!)
the veil: Susan made this for Grace along with a box of confetti, just in case she decided to have a wedding. Just what a girl needs when cooking up a storm in the kitchen 🙂
The beautiful painting above the kitchen is one of my dads: it is detailed here, with a time-lapse video of it here
What a lovely kitchen – I would have loved to find a locally made one when my grands were small. And is there anything sweeter than seeing a bride making her first meals in her new home? Although I’ve never seen one cook in her veil, Grace may begin a trend here!
Oh wow that looks fab! May she have many hours of playing! Looking forward to getting a cup of tea from it soon! 😉
That’s brilliant! I must keep my eye out for a few child-sized accessories. Don’t like the way she’s put the vegetables on the cake-stand, though. It definitely needs a few fairy cakes, not a pepper or a courgette. Poor child 🙁 Get baking, Emily!
Your little kitchen is gorgeous. It will get hours of use for sure. Bizarrely we have the same little red t-pot in our play kitchen. I bought it at an estate sale in the house across the road from our house a couple of years ago. I think they were Italian and maybe it came from there. Maybe there are hundreds of little red enamel tea pots in the world, but fancy that.
