"Pongáio" was the name my Aunt Mona gave to a long, green, cool room where we gathered at her home —
replete with comfy chairs, a rocker, sewing machine, sewing goods, beautiful beads, shelves, books, bibelots, photographs, odds'n'ends, mementos of a life, treasures —
a gathering of all the useful & 'useless' things that so make life a pleasure.

Son² came back from Paris last month with a raclette, grill and crepe-maker that his friend, who lives there, suggested he buy.
It has actually become a very handy appliance: melting cheese, toasting bread, making pancakes, and the other day I even fried an egg on it (well, it came out more of a poached effect).
It even makes crepes!

These are the photos of the debut, a few weekends ago.

 The delicious result:


I wanted to make the crepe-making photo with a photoshop action, The B&Big Picture by Panos. The freebie version automatically divides the image in 5x5 "polaroids", with no way to change (at least, I couldn't figure out a way!)... my collage would have to be 5x5 images, and not 3x3 as I was able to make..

This was the result: cool, but rather confusing!
