Gratitude - Part 1

We finished our taxes yesterday... oh joy... and for the first time in my entire life i owe the government money. So instead of stressing out about how "adult" that feels, i am taking stock of all of the things that i love, that inspire me, and that remind me of things other than taxes. :)

As you may know, i have a huge obesssion with anything kitchen related, especially if it is a frivolous gadget with very limited use. Currently i am on a salt&peppar shaker kick...








The little birds i have had the longest, and make me so cheerful evertime i pick them up, and on occasion have been known to baby talk to them... The glass shakers are our every-day ones, and they are so simple and timeless that i don't mind having them on the table at all times. The silver ones were thrifted by my darling husband - as a CHILD- and for that i have to love him even more.. if that is possible! The last pair is my most recent aquisition, and i have to thank the Anthropologie gods for allowing them to go on sale for 1/4 their original price! I have made a ridiculous amount of boiled eggs recently, just so i can use my Stag-Head shakers...by the way, another fun fact about me: i am a vegetarian who is opposed to hunting for sport. Can you explain my love of these heads? - because i can't.
