Our kitchen, (who am I kidding- our whole house) is littered with little mementos of days gone by:
*the rockin bell from our rockstar days,
*the wooden biscuit cutter, that while lovely to look at and ever so smooth to the touch; never really did a bang-up job in the dough-shaping department,
*the bubbles that some of our besties left behind from a visit,
*a tin of espresso grounds from our trip to Florence,
*a jar of one of the french versions from my salt collection, yes you read that right- I collect salt- what do you collect?
*my favorite piece of pottery we own from a sweet little lunch place in Illinois that I used to visit with some of my most favorite peeps around back when we lived in St. Louis. And yes, since I’m so fond of it, it holds part of my salt collection as well! English this time though,
*a Fiestaware spoon-rest that was a wedding gift,
*a spoon-rest from a thrift store gathered on one of hundreds of trips Lovey and I spent happily thrifting in our pre-married, house full-of-kids-and-their-crap-er-I-mean-prized possessions days,
*an egg separator from the same store as the biscuit cutter, and yes, it’s equally aesthetically appealing and equalling unusable as a functional kitchen tool,
*a shell from our last trip to the beach
and last, but not least, the first in what I hope will blossom in to a collection of pie birds from one of my favorite potters.
And that my friends is what fills barely 2 square feet of our nest. Please don’t ask for a picture of the rest of the kitchen…I’ll use up my alloted Wordpress space!
