Good morning! Happy Tuesday!
We're back from our travels. Actually we flew back on Tuesday so no blog from me that day.
I will show you two more photos of Denmark a little later on but now I'd like to show you what we bought at the market on Sunday morning. There is an English market in our nearby town of Baza. That is a second hand market the English call a 'car-boot sale'. The Brits introduced it to the Spaniards and now it is a popular Sunday feature. We go to church on Sunday, but we needed a few things for the new flat so we got up early and went to the market first. We got what we needed (some pokers for the fire) and then saw this:I fell in love with it and it will find a place in my new kitchen. From L to R they read: pepper, bicarbonate, saffron, paprika, fish (stock), salt, meat (stock), olive oil, flour, sugar, rice, lentils. It will be useful as i use all these things in cooking, although I wouldn't put broth or stock in the jars.
We are in the process of getting stoves sorted out for the new flat as it is cold without any heating. This little black beauty is called a 'parlour stove'. It is made of cast iron and we have had it a few years without using it much. It got a bit rusty, so my DH cleaned it up and spray-painted it black with special heat resistant paint. It will be installed in my new craft room as soon as DH makes the chimney.
This is the dual burner we have bought this week for the living area. The bit on the left burns almond shells and/or pellets or olive pips mixed with almond shells. The part on the right is the woodburner. We can choose depending on what fuel we have at hand. Wood can be expensive, but at times we have a neighbour or a friend who sells some wood. Usually we use the almond burner. I'm pleased as punch as they say.
Now for the last Denmark photos:
This is the back of my head and our Danish friends when we had lunch at a nice restaurant. A well known Danish dish Smørrebrød, an open sandwich with all sorts of meats and fish on dark rye bread.Yummy!
This is me trying to get onto Hand Christian Andersen's lap! (in Copenhagen)

And now, because I'm going to link with Elizabeth and Bluebeard at Altered booklover for T for Tuesday, I'm going to show you a postcard which I have written and I will post tomorrow. It goes to a girl in Italy who likes coffee cups.
That's it from me this,
Have a great week,
