corner view: on your kitchen counter

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, 

*a bag of coffee from the best damn shop around, lovingly sent from our dear Kate,

*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!

  1. I’m the proud owner of several not-functional but oh-so-pretty kitchen tools, and now I’m coveting your wooden biscuit cutter to add to my collection 🙂

  2. Never heard of someone collecting salt, but…hey, why not? There are sooo many sorts! I am collecting matte white 60s biscuit vases, knitting dolls, car models, tins and loooots of other stuff… ;o)

  3. ha ha ha.
    whatever makes you happy, go for it 🙂 I like a bit of memorabilia myself too, but trying to keep it minimal this time round (moved about 1 year ago)
