Kitchen Cravings

I am forever fantasizing about revamping my kitchen. I spend an inordinate amount of time clicking around on West Elm, Sur La Table, Crate and Barrel, Herriot Grace… you know. The usual suspects. We don’t have a ton of room in our kitchen. (And don’t get me started on the electric stove.) But it has natural light, including a big window that looks out into our backyard, which makes up for a lot. That said, I think even in the most luxe space, it’s the little things that make it. Don’t you? To that end, here are some kitchen goodies I’ve been eying.


I know marble is having a serious moment, and for a while I wasn’t into it. Now, I think one piece like this would be an instant upgrade. I’m picturing it filled with satsumas. French kitchen fruit bowl.






I’m not a terribly precise cook, so I can’t say I would use this a ton, but it sure looks fantastic. Kitchen scale.




I am in desperate need of some quality knives. Aren’t these pretty?

Damascus steel knives.





For fresh fruit and vegetables. Farmer’s market baskets.





I love Mrs. Meyer’s. Like everyone does, I suppose. But one of my favorite things about it, I’ll admit, is the packaging. It perks up the whole kitchen. Dying to get my hands on this new scent: radish!




And no kitchen round up would be complete with some Heath Ceramics worship. Their new summer line is out… behold.

BELIEVES: “A human being is part of the whole, called by us ‘Universe,’ a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest – a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation, and a foundation for inner security.” Albert Einstein “The important thing is not to think much but to love much and so do that which best stirs you to love.” St. Teresa of Avila “People say that what we’re all seeking is a meaning for life. I don’t think that’s what we’re really seeking. I think that what we’re seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonances without own innermost being and reality, so that we actually feel the rapture of being alive.” Joseph Campbell
