love of a good kitchen

Since we've been back, everyone's been asking, "So, what was the highlight?" Impossible to sum up in one or two or three hundred sentences. Definitely the little things left as much of an imprint as the big ones. Like our (2nd) Amsterdam apartment - specifically the kitchen. Forget about stainless steel, matchy matchy nouveau high tech everything. This tiny little room had more character in one corner than so many (north american) homes have in all 2500 plus poorly conceived square feet. Patty's apartment just proves that you can't buy "ethnic" or "eclectic" in a box store. You've got to come by it honestly. (p.s. 10 points if you spotted the stacks of duralex picardies on the top shelf...)
