Come, let me explain why it has two names
This Dining room is where we would entertain guests, family and friends should they ever come over. Trouble is because we live in the valley s and a little out the way, sadly we haven't had many diners sit at the table, except for us in the evenings or at the weekend when we have a proper cooked breakfast. We only made this big purchase of dining table and chairs quite recently are quite pleased with it, but as I said only our bottoms have graced those chairs.
I describe this room as so-called dining room, because this room actually is the Cooks Library - my library. The room houses all of my cookbooks, D says I am like a squirrel with my cookbooks hiding them like nuts in various places; in this case every room (except the bathroom), but the majority are in this room.
I call these three Persian female characters in headscarves my Angry Aunties, just look at their facial expressions and the pout stern mouths. They give me that disapproving look because I married outside of my cultural heritage. Actually, D got them for me as he liked them, they do make me smile sitting on one of the bookshelves, next to a 3D Butterfly card sent to me by my beautiful friend Leah. Note to self - I must write back.
This odd shaped hand crafted Teapot planter was purchased by D when we went on our late honeymoon to Paris. I have to admit, I was not convinced by his impulsive purchase as it cost lots, but he told me to not begrudge it as it was a reminder of our time together in Paris, I still have reservations about it. I like it, but I don't think it was worth the euros we spent on it, but that is me. I am too afraid to put cactus plants in it, in case the water seeps through and damages it, so its sits there with some pot pourri.
And finally, something from the kitchen: Roasted Balsamic Beetroot Galette made with red and yellow beetroot . Please do pop on over to Five on Friday hosted by Amy at Love Made My Home to see what other bloggers have shared.
