I've always loved kitchen stuff, especially at Williams-Sonoma. Maybe it's because I grew up in Sonoma California, where the chain store first started as a little bitty housewares store in 1956.
Here's my latest kitchen purchase, two Christmas potholders, from Williams-Sonoma.
I totally love the floral one. I'm having a hard time putting it away. Lord knows I would never use that potholder to take a messy pan out of the oven! Honestly, truth be told, I wouldn't use the striped one either. Too pretty...
If you stop by in July, you will probably find the Christmas potholder still hanging on the pot rack with the red striped one. It's a few days til February and I've just started taking down a few decorations. Twelve days of Christmas really doesn't cut it with me.
I'm obsessed with kitchens on Pinterest...but, that's not to say I'm a good cook. Far from it! Probably one out of five meals I cook are total fails. We eat out a lot, especially breakfast.I do have a recipe for perfect chocolate chip cookies. It's from the Williams-Sonoma blog, which is what started me thinking about my Christmas potholders and the original little store. You can have the recipe, and picture too, by just clicking on the blog link below.
I plan to try to make their cookie recipe tonight. I like to bake when it's dark and cold outside. Don't worry, those pretty red potholders aren't in jeporady! I have some old black potholders in the drawer I can use to take the pan out of the oven. They have a little burn mark on them from heaven knows where.
Thanks for dropping by!
