Gorgeous summer fruits

During the week I had a very quick overnight trip to our beachhouse (Mr FH had left his mobile phone behind!!) so I stopped at the local markets to buy some fruit and vegies to bring home. We are so lucky to be able to buy such yummy fresh produce.

I love it when the fruit bowl is full!! As we are coming into summer the stone fruit will soon be available.  Yummy!

I always have my fresh fruit in this gorgeous big white bowl in my kitchen. I thought I would share some photos with you of this end of my kitchen - usually I have photos of my tablescapes at the other end. I have a big kitchen - about 24ft long. Actually it was orignally two rooms but when we came here to live we knocked out one wall.

I love this plate rack on the wall. I puchased this from my sister's gift shop (which you can see  here) many years ago. It is very handy having a sister who can get me things for cost price!!

This cute cupboard came from another gorgeous gift shop in my nearest shopping town. I was feeling a bit down one day and saw this and it made me feel a whole lot better!!  Do you know what I mean?? There's nothing like a bit of retail therapy to make a girl feel better!

The gorgeous wire cake stand is a real favourite of mine!!  I am always amazed at how different everything can look when a little bit of effort is made with presentation. A bit like dressing up for the occasion, I guess. 

Have a lovely weekend,


PS My mind is going flat out after seeing all the Christmas decorations in the shops. I have designed my Christmas table about 4 times already!!

I LOVE that plate's so pretty! And your cupboard is gorgeous as well!! I too love the look of a bowl full of fresh fruit....very, very pretty!
**and a 24ft kitchen? I think I would probably die from the excitement of it!!**

I love your plate rack and fresh fruit in the bowl.
Wow! a 24 ft. kitchen would be amazing.
