I had my new stove delivered on Saturday and it was a good opportunity to clean and move things around on the cabinet next to the stove. That is where I have the things I need to cook with.
utensils, herbs, salt, pepper and vinegar and oil
I love the cookbook holder I found years ago...usually Mr. bible is there....that would be The Joy of Cooking. He gets it out every Sunday and decides what he wants to make for Sunday dinner, he loves that.
Of course I have my large salt and pepper grinder and my utensils for quick access.
This is one of my most treasured items. I had always wanted a vintage spice rack, they were so expensive back in the 90's...about $250. When my Mom and I were in London on one of our trips, we saw this spice rack at Fortum and Mason. I loved it and you could pick which herbs you wanted for the drawers. My sweet Mom bought it for me and had it shipped home. You can see why I love it so.
The vinegar and oil we brought back from Paris. There was a kitchen shop down the street from our hotel on Rue Vaneau and I loved stopping there. So these, some salt and pepper shakers and clay jars for basil and garlic have come home with us over the years. Now I have seen the same ones show up in the US.
It is a small space, but holds what I need and does so in a Sentimental way, bringing back thoughts of good times of trips in the past.
I know everyone is showing their Fall decors... I am running behind but here is what I do have in the window of the kitchen
I love it because, it runs on a battery and timer and comes on every night!
There is nothing like saying home with a candle burning in the kitchen window.
