So here is my kitchen this month- why is it that I want to say My Kitchen Rules every time the words "my kitchen" appear? Clearly I have been brain-washed by TV!
|love those rabbit bookends!|
|seeing a theme here? lots of rabbits in my kitchen|
|Halloween is a-coming!|
|another cookbook! and an antique French fruit masher. Oh! and some Jamie Oliver bowls|
I had such a fun month gathering things for my kitchen. I bought the book-ends in a little vintage shop in the middle of nowhere when we were in northern NSW. It is in a tiny village with a couple of shops and lots of cows. How could I resist the siren-call of more rabbits? The little green tumbler with the cow is from our friend Brooke the marvellous potter. The wooden stirrer is from the Bangalow Market; and the odd-looking bronze apparatus was made by a blacksmith in Stanthorpe for his most recent exhibition. It is a 3 legged Lewis also known as St Peter's Keys, and is a real thing! i.e. in medieval times, they used it to lift up massive stone blocks by inserting the 3 legs into a hole in the block then winching it up. Yep sounds weird to me too!
And a spotted enamel jug? not to be passed over. I really like the Jamie bowls; they are pretty and useful. Of course I love Belinda's books- she has the best recipes. And last but definitely not least, my absolutely gorgeous French fruit masher that I bought in the antique centre. Not sure if it is genuinely antique but who cares? It is so lovely, and I am afraid I may have to rush there again to buy a few more things like the wooden pestle and the boulangerie shelves. I do have a few more things that I gathered in September, but I think I better save them for next time. Hope to see you all at Celia's (virtual) place this month.
