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

    UN ABRAZO. Mariajo.

    Shells are lovely memories of days on the beach. You have beautiful items in your kitchen.

  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

  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.

  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,
    Mariette

    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.

Bohemian day - Un día bohemio

I am a little bit odd, you already know me. Sometimes I like that everything is in the correct place  and sometimes I enjoy seeing my untidy cushions. Today I have a bohemian day.
Soy un poco rarita, ya me conocéis, A veces me gusta que todo esté en el lugar correcto y a veces disfruto viendo mis cojines desordenados. Hoy, tengo un día bohemio.



Sometimes I love white  and luminous walls  and sometimes  I would love having  a stone wall at home.
A veces me encantan las paredes  blancas y luminosas  y a veces me encantaría tener  una pared de piedra en casa. 





I would love lose myself  among colourful cushions but some days  I love white ones.
Me encantaría perderme  entre cojines de colores pero algunos días  me encantan los blancos.


Baking at home - Horneando en casa

Everybody knows that industrial pastry has ingredientes,
 which are not especially healthy, but sometimes,
you would do anything to eat one or two of them.
That's the reason because you would have
to bake at home,
you will add less calories
 and healthier ingredients.
It's not easy at the beginning.
I used to bake very ugly cakes,
sometimes flat ones, 
sometimes huge ones. 
But now, 20 years later, 
I have improved a little bit.
Do you know what I love?
I love bake with friends,
 I teach them and they teach me.




Todos sabemos que la pastelería industrial  contiene ingredientes,  que no son especialmente saludables,  pero a veces harías lo que fuera  por comerte uno o dos. Esa es la razón por la que deberías  hornear en casa, añadirás menos calorías  e ingredientes más saludables. No es fácil al principio. Yo solía hacer pasteles bastante feos, a veces planos, a veces enormes. Pero ahora, 20 años más tarde,  he mejorado un poquito. ¿Sabéis lo que me encanta? Me encanta hornear con amigos,  yo les enseño y ell…

Happy New Year everybody!!! ¡¡¡Feliz Año Nuevo a todos!!!
