I love tools, like this crock of kitchen utensils, at hand beside my stove-top.
To be at ease, I want the tools on the kitchen counter to be both functional and aesthetically pleasing, like the hand-made ceramic herb jars, and the wooden pepper-mill, hand-crafted by a friend.
This antique striking clock is both handsome and useful. It keeps perfect time (so long as it’s wound!), and I can hear it from all rooms upstairs in my home.
Next to the front door, a rustic hook holds the key to our locking mailbox. The copper and crystal art piece was created by a dear friend who passed away a few years ago. It is a lovely reminder of her sweet spirit.
In the music room downstairs, the walls are lined with Creighton’s massive CD collection of Jazz, Classical, Rock, Folk and Celtic music. The bass featured is a Fender Precision, one of his four bass guitars.
“What was it? She wondered. What happened on their first encounter that seized her heartstrings and never let go? Was it his bright blue eyes? Yes. His smile? Yes. A voice rich in laughter? Yes, and his beautiful Gibson six-string guitar.”
Wishing everyone safe harbor, as we navigate uncharted waters.🐾
Thanks to Patti for this opportunity to showcase everyday objects that bring me joy!
