Kitchen Bling: Spatula Bouquet



Popsicles?  Lollipops?  Nope, they're silicone spatulas!



I was hurriedly buzzing down the aisle at our local chain grocery store the other day, searching for lemon juice.







ZING!


These beauties reached out and grabbed me and threw themselves into my cart.

I didn't even check to see what they cost.

Which is so unlike me.






But they had to  come home.

Because they match my favorite mixing bowls.

You know, I'm not one for manicures, pedicures, (unless I do them myself!) and I am not one to wear a lot of   matchy, matchy bling.

But my kitchen?

I like my kitchen to be filled with color.

It's where I spend most of my time.

Really.





And these lovely refrigerator magnets also jumped in the cart, just what I need to motivate me to a total fridge surface makeover.

What?

You hadn't heard of a fridge makeover?

Well, it is something sorely needed here, as I still have Christmas card photos up there and things that amuse and fascinate me, and I really need to declutter and clean that door.

These magnets will give me the motivation.

(They also double as recipe holders when flipped upside down.)

SO, caution thrown to the wind, I splurged and decided I'd have to go back and get another set of these spatulas for a birthday gift I'm giving that involves a jolly, bright red Pyrex bowl...shhh, don't tell!


(Spatulas found at Kroger and were around $10.  They can also be found HERE.)

**********  Have a happy day!  ***********

My kitchen is my weakness too! I love spending a lot of time there and a lot of my energy goes into decorating, redecorating, rearranging, etc. It's so hard to see cute things for the kitchen and not get them, so a lot of things have jumped into my cart before too. Great post!

Oh, I just LOVE those spatulas! I can just picture them on my kitchen windowsill. I too love decorating my kitchen and if something cute catches my eye, you'll be sure and find it in my kitchen the next day.

I'm with you, Joni, I have to have color in my house. I'm partial to red. I have it in nearly every room!
I enjoyed the trip to the Leelanau Pennisula you shared yesterday. It's been a while since we've visited-I do love it.
I agree-I'll take God's playground any day over Disneyland or any manmade amusements.
Hope you have a blessed weekend.
