A mixture of .... /Una mezcla de...

Mi kitchen decoration is a mixture of wedding
 presents,items found in street markets, 
and homemade DIY

La decoración de mi cocina es 
una mezcla de regalos de boda, 
objetos encontrados en mercadillos
y otros de bricolaje casero

This clock doesn't work,
 I found it in a street market, 1 €,
 and I love it.

Este reloj no funciona 
lo encontre en un mercadillo
1 € y me encanta

I have shells from the beach. 
And the bins that  you can see over the cabinet,
next to the clock, are tuna bins, 
handmade painted and we use them
 to put the batteries to recycle

Tengo conchas de la playa.
Y las latas que veis sobre el mueble de cocina
 junto al reloj son latas de atún pintadas a mano
 donde ponemos las pilas para reciclar

  1. !!! Como no nos hemos encontrado antes !!!, ya tienes otra fiel seguidora. Veo que como a mi, te gusta tener detalles antiguos, ¿ el despertador ? una monada, además de un chollo.
    UN ABRAZO. Mariajo.

    1. Pues nunca es tarde si la dicha es buena, no te parece??

  2. Good Afternoon Marina, I love your big blue clock, it is lovely to look at and if it worked you would also enjoy the gentle ticking calming.
    Shells are lovely memories of days on the beach. You have beautiful items in your kitchen.
    Have a lovely Sunday,
    Best Wishes

    1. Thank you Daphne, you are very kind, you are right, shells are lovely memories.

  3. Me encanta el reloj,tiene un color tan alegre. Lastima qhe no funciona. Buena idea con las latas the atun.

    1. me encanta reciclar y procuro buscar utilidad a los envases: latas, botes de cristal etc me gusta muchísimo reutilizarlos

  4. I love your blue clock, Marina! The color is gorgeous! I also like how you painted the tuna cans to recycle your batteries! A good idea! That little painting propped up in the corner intrigues me. I like it! Happy Sunday to you! xx

    1. Hi Karen, Thanks for your comments.I think you are talking about the painting my daughter painted when she was three years old.

  5. Your kitchen displays are very pretty Marina. The blue clock is a great find. I also collect seashells and have them all over my home.

    1. Welcome to my kitchen and thank you for following my blogg

  6. Dearest Marina,
    Love your approach of decorating the kitchen and it is very Eco Friendly! Love those blue bins for the batteries.
    The old alarm clock is a special one and it looks striking in blue and seems to be in perfect condition; as far as looks!
    Hugs to you,

    1. I love recycling, the first time I went to England in 1990, I didn´t know anything about recycling but there my sister in law teached me. Years after this we began to have places to recycle here in Spain.

  7. Hello Marina,

    I love your clock, I got the same when I was a little child :)

    Greetings from Belgium
