antwerp & rosemary

Today was one of those accidental shopping days with lunch & latte. Hubby had the day off so we went into town and found ourselves in a really nice shop called Dille & Kamille, getting all kinds of wonderful small items for the home, mainly the kitchen. The weather was just perfect, mild and rainy looking without the rain, and Antwerp was in exceptionally good spirits. I believe cities and places have their good and bad days, just like the rest of us. Well, today Antwerp was simply fabulous; it was one of those days when I fall a little bit more in love with the city. I admit that the Italian lunch with my man and my take away latte had something to do with that, and of course the things we bought.

So, now I'm in the kitchen with my new apron admiring the red check napkin we bought, just like the one hanging from the drawer in the image below. It got me into a French mood so I decided to make baked potatoes with rosemary and garlic.

I don't know what it is with rosemary, it always reminds me of French cuisine.

PS. I fell in love with this floor lamp in Habitat today. When I got home I saw that one of my favourite bloggers, Will at Bright.Bazaar, blogged about the lamp shade today.
