This week in Picture Inspiration we have been asked to turn our lens toward the kitchen, to see what items we find there that inspire us or "tickle your creative fancy". For the images I'm sharing here I have to say that the stories of how these have been used and of who used them is what inspires me. I think it's because my grandparents were both such good people that I want to be like them when I grow up....
The two Fire King coffee cups are my favorite. I can still remember Grandma putting instant coffee in these. Love how the light shines through.
The rolling pin here is for making Springerles. It's laying on top of the recipe in Grandma's cookbook where she kept her collection of favorites. You roll the dough with this to create a pattern, and then cut it into the squares. The imprint of the hand carved design remains on the cookie.
Simple items filled with good memories. What's in your kitchen that brings you fond memories? Is there an item that stirs your creativity?
