scenes from my kitchen
i spend a lot of time in the kitchen. in my old apartment, my kitchen was also the living room and bedroom, but in my current place, my favorite room has tons of cabinets and counter space. i thought i’d show you a few of my favorite things in my favorite room.
i think i only bought two or three of these gadgets. somehow i just keep acquiring stuff.
this painting is above my oven. if they could miniaturize bears, i would get one as a pet.
i’m convinced there are no practical ways to store bowls, pots and pans.
there happened to be a nail here already, so it was the perfect spot for my peel.
this coffee maker belonged to my grandmother. my parents donated it to me recently, but i realized after i got home that it’s missing a pretty important part. i ended up buying a new mr. coffee (not pictured, but sitting just across the table). i still don’t want to get rid of this one.
i know, it’s beautiful. this pig napkin holder (just so you know what it’s supposed to be) was made during cub scout summer camp when i was in third grade. my mom actually used it for many years until i went off to college, when it first graced my kitchen.
were you lucky enough to have mr. t cereal when it was around? i wasn’t, but i’m such a huge fan of the guy (as well as the rest of the a-team), that i had to put him up on my wall to remind me to stay in school, drink my milk and be good to my mother.
i love the design of this timer. the girl picked it up for me at anthropologie.
so, i have two mixers. lest you think i’m just swimming in extravagence, let me explain. the sumbeam mixer (the black one) was a christmas gift from my parents. i won the kitchen aid in a valentine’s day giveaway (i had the choice of red or pink) – on thepioneerwoman.com! i still can’t believe i actually won. i’ve used both and the jury is still out on which i like better.
now that you’ve seen mine, show me your kitchen! i want to know all about where you cook and bake. post pictures on your blog and comment here with the link!
