For Mother's Day I was let loose in Anthropologie for about 20 minutes while the 3 girls were quietly mesmerized by some fragile teacups and frilly under garments. (Thanks husband!) Even they can't resist the power of that store. I decided to get only houseware items because I spend so much frikkin time in our house. Specifically, our kitchen. These ceramic geese measuring cups are impossible to use but incredible to look at. I love them.
Ceramic teaspoon/tablespoons. Very very loud. They have woken baby up in the sling several times already, but I still love them.
This little ceramic jar on the right now holds cinnamon, which I seem to need every day. It's got a very pleasing tight little seal. The butter dish on the left is a godsend. Everyone should have one. Everyone who likes spreadable butter. So, that would be everyone, right?
And a new oven mitt to replace my old burnt one that was totally gross and horrible. And I didn't sew it. This is a huge Mother's Day gift to myself. Everyone will ask if I made this when they see it. Nope!
It's supposed to be crazy hot in 2 days, but right now, it still feels like February in Portland and it has for a long time. People are getting anxious. I expect to see many freaky shirtless pale dudes walking about this weekend, a favorite Portland tradition when it gets over 70°. Awesome. The 3.5 year old likes to yell, "That man is naked!"
