A charming, bright, and airy kitchen complete with plenty of house plants and a great 50's style fridge.

I saw this picture in June's Food & Wine magazine the other day:
It had a tiny blurb about the tablecloth, that it is hand woven linen made by a lady named Chiara Stella Cattana. I quickly jotted down her website, planning to look it up when I got home. How disappointing when I went to chiarastellacattana.com and saw only text, "Soon online", dated December 2007! So, I tried to use my google skills to find her somewhere else. I ended up at Shierenberg & Van Der Brug, a Dutch website with beautiful pictures. Even when using the Babelfish webpage translator the site is still barely decipherable, but worth visiting just to look at its pretty pages...

Inspired by this article on CountryLiving.com, I went searching on Ebay for vintage glass to be used as vases for fresh flowers.
