You Can't Trough This!

(Think MC Hammer, people!!)

Ahem, so anyway, our trough came - yay! As you can imagine we're pretty excited about it - except Bi, who is so sick she can't even talk, and seems content enough to send us detailed emails noting the gross particulars. Bless her cotton socks. We most definitely hope she regains full health shortly! Poor sausage...

So back to the trough -

one loverly trough supplied by the very talented Like Butter team with associated paraphernalia and kitchenette...

...and from another angle with two happy ladies - Lara and Teegs

Ooh and one more thing - here is our temporary cutting table, kindly donated by Vern of William May Productions, covered in some delicious 12oz cotton duck... mmm....

loving ebay

While I was relaxing on the great ocean road and Teegs and Lara got a lot of work done...Lara realised that the kitchenette we had our eye on, on ebay, was about to expire.
We had been spying on this little beauty for a while and were loving we really needed a kitchenette for our studio. We quickly decided on a maximum bid and voila! The cute ikea sink is ours...

Lara had arranged a van (Thanks so much Tom!) and we went to pick up the kitchenette on the other side of town on Friday. It was a lovely day, perfect to pick up a - super heavy - kitchen unit. The seller helped us getting it into the van and off we were, to the studio. Now it was up to us to carry the beast up, we managed to get it up to the first floor but were totally exhausted and couldn't carry it any further.

Lucky for us there was an electrician in the building and we could 'borrow' his muscles. He was more than happy to help us carry it up one more level...super proud of us that we already managed to get it up one level. Thanks!
So this beauty is now part of the ink & spindle kitchen area :)

Of course we were really hungry after all the hard work, so we were off to the local cafe for a yummie lunch.
And this is just something I have to share with you...the view of our building walking back from the cafe. This building just makes me smile every time I walk to the studio... still can't believe we actually have a studio in such a stunning building.
