It's Saturday morning, and I'm browsing airfares for my upcoming trip to Portugal.
And so the daydreaming of what will be done on my little olive farm begins anew...Which means it's time for another update on the progress of the renovations.
This, dear readers, is what will one day be the kitchen.
This is what it looked like before we pulled out all the brambles and weeds.
Ta-Da! Would you just look at the progress?? It will be finished in no time.
I'm not quite sure what these gigantic rocks will be used for...they look like some sort of sculptural element, so I'd like to build around them but not sure what that will look like... I'm thinking a glass wall of some kind, with shutters to protect during inclement weather, or simple French doors, running the length of the room, to throw open on warm days and let in the scent of wild rosemary from the garden. And a skylight, perhaps, to brighten the dark, winter days. There will definitely be a long, wooden farm table and a "rustic" chandelier...
The best part was dicovering...this. The beautiful, original bread oven. I can't wait to bake my first loaf of pao caseiro, the traditional country-style bread of Portugal.
