Kitchen Kitsch

What's It Wednesday #117
I have some secret collectibles that are just for me. I place them here and there in the pantry and cupboards just to bring a smile.

They are adorable little figural salt and pepper shakers. This apple pie slice has a scoop of ice cream on top, and is perfect where I have baking supplies and cookbooks.

 No one likes mice in the kitchen, but when this little guy brings his own cheese... 


well, who can say no?

Mr. Garlic and Ms. Onion make a perfect pair. They always come out when there's a mention of pasta.

I know he seems to be looking down his nose,

but I think he's trying to hold back a sneeze!

These guys brighten any breakfast table. Now that's what side my bread is buttered on!

 This delicate boy and girl spend most of their time in a glass cabinet.
 
But they come and play on special occasions.

My favorite is this jaunty ladybug sitting on a flower.

I love her flower hat and leaf parasol. She keeps my plants company on the windowsill in the kitchen.

It's a happy place that always make me smile.
Hugs,
Patti

Morning Patti,
Love all your salt and pepper shakers, they are all so cute.
My fav was the mouse and cheese,

Reminds me of my Grandmothers house when I was a kid, she had a lot of very cute salt and pepper shakers too, along with just cutsy figurines
Always got a kick out of seeing them.
Thank you for hosting this fun party and giving me a flashback. lol

We take care of my hub's elderly aunt and uncle, and she collected S&P shakers. I have a box full of ones that couldn't fit into the nursing home. Thanks for hosting.

Red Rose Alley said...

I love all your kitchen collectibles, Patti. Mr. Garlic and Ms. Onion is my favorite - how delightful they are.

Thank you for your comment on my "mom" post. I'm so sorry that you lost your mom at 25. That must have been so hard. I was only 28 when my dad left this world, and I was older with my mom, as she lived a long life. I've been thinking about her a lot on this mother's day coming up.

Sending you love today.
