Beautiful Cookware

Thought this was beautiful cookware at the Amazon 4-Star Store.


BTW, can’t believe Amazon is now getting into bricks and mortar too!


These enameled cast iron dutch oven pots are colorful and useful. 


In a way, they are too good-looking to use.  


Maybe just put them on the stovetop and let them look pretty. 


There is always the microwave for the real food. 😉

Copper Pots, Pans, and Bowls

Really liked this set of matching copper pots, pans, and bowls. 

 

Lighter than cast iron and conducts heat 5x better.

 

They look good and if coated with a non-stick substance are very functional. 

 

Not just as a wall hanging but on the stove. 😉

Bowl Set Adorable

Wow, what an adorable bowl set. 


Eat bowl has a part of the lady on it. 


Stack them up and you see her in her red dress and blue hair. 


Put them up in the wrong order and she may end up all messed up. 


Either way the food will taste the same.  😉

Eyewash Smiley

Had to take a second look at this eyewash station with the bright yellow caps.

I suppose this is good if you get something in your eye(s) and need to flush it out. 

Are the yellow caps supposed to be for keeping the faucets clean and unobstructed. 

Whole thing looks a little like a face:  the yellow caps are the eyes, the big center faucet is the nose, and the sink basic the big mouth. 

Maybe just my imagination, but I think it’s saying “there are too many cooks in this kitchen, get the h*ll out!” 🙂

Give Me That Fridge Handle

So we got a new stainless refrigerator. 


A cause for celebration!


It get’s delivered and afterwards, I notice that the door handles are installed unevenly. 


I call the store and they agree to send their guys out to us again to fix it. 


Well, the handles were on the wrong doors and they switch it so that now they look even, but in the process, they break the handle on one of the doors so that only the top is attached to the door and the bottom is blowing in the wind (and ready to scratch the door). 


With this second installation debacle, I call the store again and not a happy camper!


Three calls later, the store agrees for me to come over and literally take the handle of the fridge on the showroom floor to replace my broken one–which I promptly did!


Third times the charm…no more broken door handle. 


As for the one in the store, let’s just say you can only open the left door for now.  😉

Beautiful Teapot (Just For Looking)

Just wanted to share this really beautiful yellow and flowered teapot. 


Love all the shapes–the pyramid base, the curly spout, the circular handle, and the little round ball at the top. 


Like most nice things, it’s too beautiful to actually use. 


(Almost like a million outfits in my closet that I never wear, because I don’t want to mess them up…)


This is where design trumps functions–and I would rather look at this and enjoy it as art more than drinking another cup of tea! 😉

Cannibal Soup

Two funny things came to mind about eating dinner.


The first was a joke my dad always told which was something like:

We had our mother-in-law for dinner…and boy was she good!  LOL

The second was something I heard recently about power and politics, which was:

If you’re not at the table then you on the menu!

Ah, you better have a seat (and welcome voice) at the table or else you may find yourself part of the next batch of beef stew coming out of the kitchen. 


Two new ways for us to think of dinner time.  😉

Orange You Glad I Didn’t Say Banana

Orange Fridge
Took this photo of this very cool looking Orange Fridge.

 
It actually comes in all sort of vibrant colors including pink, blue, and even “Union Jack.”
 
Made by an Italian appliance maker called SMEG, whose tag line is “Technology with style.”
 
I like technology, and I like design…so this is great stuff!
 
For home and Museum of Modern Art. 😉
