Coffe shop 3

I thought it was time for another coffee shop update! Look the tree trunk is partly up! We are getting there..;..;; yes!
The shelves behind the bar are now ready to be filled with cups and glasses of different sizes; as well as teapots and different cannisters!! There is so much to buy and ........find!  

 Here's a quick shot of the "atelier" (that is workshop in French) because that's one of the special things about the café is that we will be animating different workshops, craft, art, music, foreign languages as well as mid-week workshops for the kiddos! Notice the piano?
 These doors were painstakingly restored and "glassed" by my husband (who is an excellent handy-man by the way.)They used to be church doors and cost 8 euros for one!

Another attraction of our café will be a mini-library where people can come and read while drinking their coffee or even borrow a book! We cut out the back of one of the shelves to frame the little window of the work room where all those noisy machinery like blenders and juicers will be kept and used. We want people to enjoy a peaceful interlude to their day and not have the impression of being on a construction site every time someone orders a smoothie.

sea shells and sand

 We don't live too far from the sea. Oh it's not the curaco blue Bahamas or even the Mediteranean emerald waters we visit, no we're talking about grey waters ,the Channel.
 It doesn't bother us too much as the sea is beautiful whereever you are I guess. The horizon on the water is always dreamy for me.
 Little Eve is sunning it out in a lime,flouresant, green tunique.......... That way I wouldn't lose her; I could see her far ,far away sometimes! She moves fast.
 And look at this uber cool idea for the tooth fairy; more like the fallen teeth of our little people. ( found on the Mondocherry blog)

Wishing you all a great week-end. xx Iris.
