Saturday Market

                   Every Saturday in my  neighbourhood is the largest flea market  in Thessaloniki.
                                                         We shop the vegetables and fruits of the week .
                                          But  my  greatest joy is when I go on the road with flowers.
                                                          candy and nuts
                                                          potatoes and garlic
                                                   many strawberries ................
                                              cheese ,yogurt ,  cake sheets
                                                    all kinds of olive ....
                                                     for planting tomatoes ..............
                                             eggplants and pepper for planting .......



                                             the bench with herbs .......
ceramics ,soil .garden items.........
                                this way makes me feel like a small child in front of chocolates...
                                 I look at the benches with flowers and I want to buy all...




                                        climbing geraniums ,  we saying "mastic"
                                           geraniums "black eye "

                                                   bouquets roses .............
                                          Another way they sell curtains and household items..





                       The surrounding streets are outdoor coffee shops but today I was not for coffee.
                       But the truth is that I got  home  with all necessary shopping  and with enough
                       flowers for planting . The pleasure was great and  next post will show the results !!

A gift for me


 

Today,while  my husband returned from his work was holding a bag . I asked him what it is and he said that is a gift for you ! I was surprised because we had not some anniversary or something else ..I opened the bag and saw two candlesticks . I asked why he took them and told me that he saw in a shop and thought that I liked .  I really liked but I thought that it is no time for wasting ....He reassured me by saying that he took 15 euro.


the basis

                 

                                                                 the top

                                                       I had these old candlesticks
                                       
                                      I think that new is better and I thought it would match
                                                  the set of dishes that I bought .


                         
                                       I thanked my sweet husband and I promised to prepare
                                             a nice dinner and turn them on !
                                                   Have a nice weekend !

New dishes like old



Yesterday I went down town to a store and saw these dishes that are old style. I liked and decided to buy them.When I asked the saleswoman for dinnerware ,she replied that it is not complete the set. 
He had the following  six shallow plates ,6 deep , a salad bowl , a platter  and  two small fruit .
All costs 50 euros. I thought about it enough and decided to buy .I was thinking maybe find some additional dishes and so to complete the set .  



                  the deep and shallow dishes
                                   the platter
                      the salad bowl


I think maybe I look find some extra plates to brown in the same style , so to complete the set.
I do not know if I did well , but I liked it so much the old style .
                                                     Have a nice day !

Λίγα λουλούδια για αρχή ....


Πριν μερικές ημέρες αγόρασα λίγα λουλούδια μόνο για προθέρμανση ....
Αν και ο καιρός, πότε ζεστός πότε συννεφιασμένος δεν βοηθάει για τη διαμόρφωση των μπαλκονιών ακόμη ...

Πήρα ένα γεράνι σε έντονο ρόζ χρώμα....

                               Η μικρή πασχαλίτσα θερμόμετρο δείχνει 20 βαθμούς αλλά ...
                                    Το φύτεψα σε ένα κασπώ ζωγραφισμένο ....
                                     δύο μώβ πετούνιες ....

                                          Δίπλα στην πασχαλινή διακόσμηση ....
                                     άλλο ένα κασπώ  που έχει χάσει το χρώμα του απο τον ήλιο ...
                                       Ροζ γεράνι ..νέο φυτό ,θα δούμε πως θα πάει ...

                                            και ένας κάκτος που δεν μεγαλώνει ποτέ ....
                                 Λίγα έτσι για αρχή ... Σε λίγο θα αρχίσουν και οι εκθέσεις λουλουδιών .....
                                                              Καλή σας ημέρα
