WAYRN - aka "Where are you RIGHT NOW?"
I missed out on participating in this fun little showcase of people's blogging spaces inspired by Carrie at Walternatives because my camera was packed for our vacation. I still want to be in on the game, though, darnit. So, here I am with pics and everything.
Here is my blogging spot. It is conveniently located in our kitchen. Yes, it neighbors our bitchin' stove - makes it that much easier to mind the "Break & Bake" cookies, wash a couple dishes as I wait for Blogger to upload pics and type a bit in between commercials of Project Runway (the TV is about 10 paces away).
The shiny board to the right of the computer is my spice rack. I am very proud of it. You see, we remodeled our kitchen last summer & this was one of the things that I put my fingerprints upon. I'd seen many smaller scale versions - but I wanted one that was kindof like art upon the wall. The project took me forever, b/c I just couldn't find the perfect magnet to attach the jars to the board. Once I did, the shop that sold them only got them in a few at a time. Certainly a labor of love.
Anyway......I digress. Back to the WAYRN.
Here is a more detailed pic of the view from the keyboard. If Jzboy saw Iris up there sitting upon the MacMini he would "throw 15 fits" (shameless use of a favorite Mom-ism). Above the monitor/keyboard is where I keep my favorite cookbooks and other special kitchen collections. Notice the vintage Betty Crocker cookbook? The illustrations are genius.
Finally, a detailed shot of my collection of cookbooks & Schillling Spice Tins. Most of the collection is thanks to my mother. She has an amazing talent of clueing into anyones (& I mean ANYone's) collection-tendencies. Do you love Santas? Cardinals? Vintage sweaters? Or, perhaps, you love quail???? She and Dad hit a lot of antique stores and stuff on a day-to-day-to-weekend-basis.....hence, the killer collection.
Thanks Mom! Don't forget...I'm still collecting vintage dishtowels. And....if you should ever happen to see an original Dressy Bessy (the one with the Red Hair)....well, wouldn't that be perfect for buttercup????? Love ya, Mom...........
Cool. I did it. Thanks for visiting. That was fun.
Onto the next thing....updates on the knitting I finished on vacation. Good times.
