Picking Up His Baby (LaCanche)

For all of you who also dream of one day owning a Lacanche or similarly gorgeous range (called “pianos” by the French – the first time a neighbour told me all her new kitchen needed was a “piano” I thought she meant a Steinway, which I thought was rather odd for a tiny 17th century kitchen) you will enjoy this article about one man traveling to the Cote D’Or to pick up his baby.

By the way, this is the hand pigmented cement tile I am envisioning in my dream kitchen with my delft blue Lacanche.

Or this;

Can you just picture either of these with white cabinets, an apron style sink, and reclaimed wide plank fir floors?   Oh yeah, and this final little detail…

    Tragically not this year. As I said to Karen, I have been waiting for magical money fairy to appear from sky but so far she is AWOL. Turns out house building is an expensive endeavour! Also have very sick children at home right now with some awful mystery virus. Clem was just released from hospital where she had been admitted for 48 hours – 42 degree fevers and breathing difficulties…very scary. I can’t wait to hear all about it though…bises xo

    Oh c’est dommage. All of it. I see from your other post that Clem is better. I remember those days all too well. Two of mine got whooping cough when they were little (despite the vaccination.) I spend many a night in hospital, on the floor of their rooms, in a miserable heap on the floor…

    Bises. We’ll miss you.
