Mmmm. A little lobster might be nice.

Cookware that never disappointed! But also built plenty of muscle on many women's arms. smile I can only imagine how heavy those are.
Ginnie Hart: Indeed so, Steve. There was an entire array of copper pots and pans that were very heavy. In fact, the guide had my 18-year-old g'son try to lift one!

Ginnie Hart: Whoever "arranged and accessorized" this castle really did have a good eye for the place, Sherri. We were thrilled to see it. Thanks.
A terrific comp, Ginnie! Love the tones!

Drôles de casseroles avec des trous.
Ginnie Hart: And very heavy for a sieve?!
Its one of those 'The whole is greater than the sum of the parts', pictures Ginnie, very nice.
Ginnie Hart: Most kind of you, Frank. Thanks.

Oh, I see a lobster. I love your treatment of this old cookware.

Can you call me when dinner is ready, Ginnie wink
I love this point of view and great tones. The pattern of the towels is still used here in Hollandshire.
Ginnie Hart: HA! As long as you do the dishes, Astrid! smile And thanks for the comment about the towels, especially used in commercial kitchens.

And just imagine how heavy those colanders would be when full of vegetables
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Lisl! G'son Nicholas picked up one of the copper pots (by direction of the guide) and thereby experienced how heavy these can be.

I bet the cooks in the kitchen had big arm muscles to lift those colanders. I would be checking that the wine was suitable smile
Ginnie Hart: LOL, Alan. I'm sure you would be quite useful in that kitchen in more ways than one. smile
Un passé très bien équipé malgre tout !!
Bonne journée Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: "The way we were," Claudine?! smile

The old lobster is unmistakable Ginnie. How kitchens used to be eh.o
Ginnie Hart: As I just told Claudine, "the way we were!"
Those pans will never hold water Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHA!
i would help that lobster to escape lol fly, be free!! smile neat shot, siater... oh wait, is it a spa day for the lobster? lol sorry for misinterpretting tongue
Ginnie Hart: I have a feeling that lobster has been "dead in the water" for a long time, Elaine, so maybe we don't have to feel sorry or it. HA! Remember that scene in Julie & Julia? smile

J'adore l'ambiance
JP
Ginnie Hart: Merci, JP.
Hmmm. A lobster in the pot.
Ginnie Hart: One for the money, two for the show, three to get ready and.... Why in the world does THAT pop into my head. HA!
I bet one needed large arm muscles to handle that lot full of vegetables.
Ginnie Hart: I bet so, too, Brian!
I wonder if those beautiful wall tiles are original, Ginnie? I love your perspective of this part of the kitchen.
Ginnie Hart: I'm sure those tiles ARE original, Beverly, yes. Don't you love it! Thanks.

Ginnie Hart: I totally concur, Peter!

A castle kitchen - that is the kitchen I like. A kitchen where I never have to work, but get the most delightful food from - that is from the castle owner's point of view.

Great composition and a fitting conversion.
Ginnie Hart: When you have servants to do all your work for you, Louis, right??? smile. Thanks.

Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Ruthie.

This photo reminds me of a trip to Paris and a 'tourist' trip to the local supermarket.

Is that lobster making a bid for freedom?
Ginnie Hart: It's fun when photos remind us of something or somewhere, Cherry!
Just love the texture! And that floor tile!
