Cuteness in the kitchen!

ursy_ten Apr 20, 2011 03:46 AM

I came across these babushka doll measuring cups the other day
http://www.oo.com.au/M-Cups_Measuring...
I think they're very cute!

I don't make a habit of buying every cute thing I see, but it's nice to have a few little whimsical pieces around, just for the fun factor - in addition to being useful (they still have to have a purpose - but that's just me).

Have you seen any cuteness for the kitchen lately?

    Couldn't resist bringing a new friend home to help me out in the kitchen. In case you can't read the label: "This little Piggy gets the job done." $1.99. I ♥ TJ Maxx! And my new pig!

    Saw a small silicone pig slotted turner, too, but resisted.

      somebody a while back linked to a hilariously tacky(but so fun!) ruffled flamenco apron -- they a ruffled cover for your dishsoap bottle, too.

      can't find the thread to save my life.

          Ha - I could see my mother in law in that! Cooking and dancing are two of her passions.

            I couldn't find the thread either, but I found the website that sells the aprons. I had almost forgotten about these! I don't wear an apron, but I kind of wanted one of these things. :)

                  thanks, kattyeyes -- I searched my own posts, and ran a search, but it didn't show up!

                    I love it! That print is so pretty...

                    Those sure are adorable! I bought this pink mouse pot holder last year:

                    I have a very cute polar bear timer, too!

                    My moose oven mitt is a bit worn, but still gets the job done. Used to have an alligator mitt that was quite cool. I wish I could find one again. I appreciate having a little whimsy around as well, as you can see!

                      That is the cutest polar bear timer I've ever seen! Love the pot holder too. Thanks for sharing, kattyeyes :)
