Pretty Boxes, Peace and Potato Salad

27 May

1   We were in the shop buying some French Bean plants at Kehelland when I noticed these beautiful little boxes. The top row looks like four delicious fondant fancies! I didn’t buy one and I’m sorry now!

2   There was also this delightful bowl made out of wire and the word PEACE over and over again. I loved it but we don’t need a fruit bowl either!

3   Tonight I made our first  Potato Salad of the season. I always make the version made for us in America on our first visit 30 odd years ago. I used eggs from the chickens of our lovely friends, N&G, hence the glorious golden colour of the salad.

    The boxes and bowl are beautiful reminds that we don’t have to own things to appreciate and admire them. That potato salad, however, I must have! Now! 😀

    What a glorious day you had. I have a few of those pretty boxes and I have always loved them. They are usually from India. The colours just grab my attention.
