i love | february 2014 edition
It's interesting what draws the eye. What makes one think. I have two sets of beautiful pepper mills that were both made by my maternal grandfather so long ago. I got two sets by accident (my grandfather had forgotten he'd already made a set...and there was no way I was going to turn another set down - because they are amazing pieces.)
The pepper mills have a very small tub-like whole in the center of the mill for the peppercorns. If we eat rosemary bread served with pepper infused olive oil, the corns are gone in one meal.
I've been on the lookout for a larger pepper mill. I would preferrably like a pepper mill that is about a foot tall with a large area for peppercorns - but this 1 is great too.
And I'm in love with bowls of all different sizes. I have an old set of corning ware bowls in the brown/tan colors and my mom got me a colorful, 4-bowl lightweight, ceramic set of bowls that I use ALL the time, but I'm always on the look out for interesting sets of bowls. Like 2.
Love bracelets. 3 is so pretty and delicate. Just gorgeous.
I want to learn how to can foods. 4 has some great reviews, and the book is geared to the beginner. Aah - that's me!
Crocheting or looming is on my 50 in my 50th year list. I found 5 on Etsy. How sweet is this loom.
6 is the first of many ideas for the boys' bathroom. It's high on my decorate list after a front porch of course. The bathroom plan is neutral, but slightly manly. Woods, burnished nickel, browns, tans, creams, no theme otherwise.
