Barbecue for two

Hello,  dear readers,

A barbecue needs food.  Besides the meat items on the grill, there must be at least, one green salad and some fruit for dessert.

I dared, for the first time, to make a lettuce salad.
Hope it resembles a r/l one.  Bowl is a gift from Maria.

This is a fruit tray made by Goldie. a super talented miniaturist and a good friend.  I love the mouthwatering figs and watermelon, what can be more refreshing on a hot summer day? Not so sure about my grapes which I added.  Should I leave them there?

The table is set for two.  The meat will be served on wooden plates.
Like I wrote in my previous post, there will be many gifts from friends displayed in this project.
The glasses on the table are part of a birthday gift from Karin.
Forks and knives are also part of a birthday gift from Kaisa.

This is the barbecue grill I won from Alexandra's giveaway.  Added a mustard and catsup set as well as 5 large Nurnberger sausages for Birgit

I wish you all a creative week ahead and those of you, on vacations, have fun!

Barbecue in the Patio

Dear readers,

It's over a month since my last post.  Much has happened meantime.  My computer decided to finally give-up after many attempts to bring it back to life.  On top of it and right in the middle of the hottest time in summer here in Israel, the main air conditioner stopped cooling.  If this was not enough, the TV net started to make trouble. For a technician from the supplier to come and check the net I had to wait 3 weeks.  I decided to change suppliers and it took only 3 days and a better deal. The young technician who came to install the new TV net, was very kind and restored the air-conditioner.
Now I have a working TV net, a new internet line, a working air-conditioning and a NEW COMPUTER!!

The flower shop is almost finished, except for a "glass" front and ceiling.  A friend bought me a large poster frame from IKEA.  I intend to use the perplex from this frame as glass. The only delay is that I don't know when my friend will have time to come and visit and I am unable to take the time and go to her.

This is why I started to make the Patio barbecue scene.  Here are a few photos of what was done already.

Hanging plants.  I created the plants and the ceramic pots. The wall is only for demonstration.

It was time consuming but worth the efforts.  Some of the pots will hang on the shop's walls.

From a paper covered wire I made the hangings part for the pots. It's barely possible to see it when installed on the wall and can be moved easily if necessary.

Created these two "straw" chairs from burlop . (Tutorial here)

Added a table and a stool.

This is only the beginning.  I intend to use many of the gifts and swaps with friends for this project.

Enjoy lovely summer days with blessings!
