Ikea Kitchen Makeover at Beach cottage

 When I travel to Europe, I'm always amazed at how clean and tidy their houses are, and how they mange to purge themselves of all things unnecessary. Everything is there, but hidden in cupboards. The counters are clean, and no, they don't have a Maid service coming in regularly.

I think the only people who have clean kitchens are the ones that eat out all the time. NOT happening at my place, here's a scrumptious Coffee Cake which was just made.

In Europe, they seem to have  a knack for mixing ultra modern Ikea cabinets with century-old antiques, and it blends and looks wonderful. How do they do it? 

Visit Camellia's! Strawberry picking is coming up, mention the word STRAWBERRY and get a discount at our till!

Summer photos at the Camellia

 It's always more fun to do Product Shoots in the Summer. Warmer weather, green grass, and blue skies.

 We sell this wonderful Hand Lotion at Camellia's - smells just like fresh Lilacs!

 And their Soap is heavenly!

 A Butterfly stops by, attracted by the Lilacs....

 Love this old Window idea for a Garden wedding.

Eiffel Tower  Candle Holder with 2 levels - this would look great in a Gazebo, especially at night!

Easy DIY with Rhubarb leaves

 Rhubarb leaves are so plentiful in the garden at the moment. You may look at them and think, well, they're too big to use in an arrangement.

 You can roll them up like when you're making a sushi wrap, then use green wool to bind.

 Use purple floral dye in the water, or mix red and blue food colouring into the water.

 Add a faux or fresh Dahlia, and voila! A 10 minute masterpiece!

 Looks like some exotic tropical leaf, but it's just Rhubarb.

 So much texture, it'll be interesting to see the leaves change after they soak up the purple dye.

Camellia's - Open Wednesday through Sunday.
Today, Friday June 1st. 11-6. Saturday, June 2nd.  11ish to 5, Sunday, June 3rd. 12-5
