swiss cross lantern



i found these old swiss cross paper lanterns at the flea yesterday.  
i love them and can't find them anywhere else on the internets.
available HERE





also, i spent part of my weekend painting walls at my new place.  they were a shade of pale yellow which was not going to work for me.  the living room walls are now a white called "swiss coffee".  the kitchen will be the same.  i had some old semi-gloss paint kicking around in an almost black for the kitchen cabinets (a little added browny-grey to be true black) and in the next couple days when i find the time i'll finish painting in the kitchen.  then i'll take a few pictures for you.

These are sometimes seen during Swiss National Day! http://www.thecordial.com/events/03fendant/

They are gorgeous. Amazing how the simplicity of the cross and the white against the red elevates it from the often garish Eastern ones found in red and gold . . .

I love the sound of your kitchen! Sounds similar to our home, no wonder I like your work so much!
