Hello sweet friends!
Last Friday afternoon I went to pick up a "Folding Wood, Cook book Holder:" You see, I always had one I loved in clear Lucite for around 18 years and suddenly it gave up and broke in half, couldn't use it in any way anymore and I was really heart broken. Book stands are so practical when you're following a recipe and you want your book wide open. Anyway, to make the story short, Alejandro said; 'have one made' at the same place where we had our wooden kitchen cabinets custom made, this way they can match the same color of the wood.
I didn't wait to long to go to the shop after hubby's suggestion, although I didn't have a stand for almost a year since the old one broke, though!
I took a copy of the model I wanted made in wood from Internet and explained to the manager of the shop what I wanted. He agreed to make me one to match the wooden cabinets. Anyhow, here it is, so you can see for yourself...I'm elated with it, I even made home made bread for the weekend, just to use my French Bread cookbook wide opened in the stand, lol!
|Here is my new 'Folding Wood, book holder stand! Didn't they do a marvelous job?!|
|Here is the original picture of the copy I took to the shop's manager. I even like mine better!|
|Here it is doing it's work beautifully by holding my French Bread Baking book.|
|Didn't my bread come out cute! In the small pic of the book, you can see a little of the bread's recipe I made.|
|My dearest Mil gave us the two teacups with the green lid when we were just married in 1975 and she said it was for us, 'love birds!'|
|When you take off the lids, this is what you see...a sieve for the tea bag, also in ceramic.|
|After the tea is made, you take the sieves off the teacups and rest them in the lids to drip, as in the photo.|
|We love our tea with honey and at left is an adorable 'honeycomb container' with a bee in the lid, which I designed back at our past Ceramic Co.|
|We also love bread with cheese and 'blackberry' home made jam; which I also made last week with Splenda. The Green and White pieces were also made at our past company.|
|We are going to watch a movie in the den this afternoon, so we're taking our tea, bread, cheese and jam, there...all ready in the plates that you see here.|
|I am soo excited with my new, Wood book holder, as it's so much prettier than the Lucite I had before! I have to hand it to my hubby for the idea!|
|Here you have it, my Wood-cook book stand and our small buffet setting for tea time.|
Thank you lovely friends for your wonderful comments, as you always make my day!
