My photo
I ran away from teaching to the country to grow veggies. There are also some chooks and a pair of troublesome goats who were so much trouble they had to go! My simple green life isn't always as simple or as green as I'd like...but I keep trying!

On my mind...everywhere!

Wherever I go I seem to see things that keep me thinking about
my planned outdoor kitchen.

Tin fire place and chimney on the fencers' shed at Healesville Sanctuary.

This one isn't kitchen inspiration...just a nice bit of design. 

Today I am taking part in Rhonda's 'On My Mind' ...a Friday photo feature that anyone can join in.  It opens the way to sharing our thoughts and gives a way for us to discover more about each other.  You can join in too.  Just write a post about what is on your mind and link it to Rhonda's post over at Down to Earth. 


  1. Your kitchen is going to be so cool Hazel.

  2. Sounds like you are living the dream. Great photos, hope the kitchen works out just the way you envisage it to be.

  3. all these pictures inspire me so much and they make me think and rethink how I want to use the spaces we create here too..whats behind those doors to the building off the pizza shop ? is it an indoor or an outdoor space?I am in love with the old barn rustic look for an out door area..later I'll post a couple pics of a building that makes me think of outdoor eating,I think you would like it too.

  4. I am visiting through the link-up also :) Wow, an outdoor kitchen sounds fantastic. Like, 'eternal vacation' :)

    I wish you all the best building it!

    This Good Life

  5. I'm glad you like the bridge. We had fun designing it in the office. Especially when we were wading through the creek to find the best alignments!

    The wavy bars were a nightmare though! We had to design each bar curve radius spacing so that kids couldn't get their heads stuck!

    They blend well into the surroundings. The rust colour is actually a paint by Porters. If you want any information for your kitchen, let me know. It's great for making new look old. You can also get copper paint which is really cool if it’s applied well...

  6. Can't wait to see the final product! This is also one of my dreams - particularly a pizza oven outside...

    Good luck!

  7. I think half the fun in a project is the planning,love your idea of all things rustic.
