When I got home from the city on Monday, there was a wonderful still life of old objects set up on my kitchen table, left for me by my friend Susan who takes care of the cats when I’m away, and has been cleaning out her basement.


She gave me this lovely, simple, old apple corer. I love the way the handles are a twist in the wire frame.

This useful jar lifter with soft wooden handles. Feels so much nicer than plastic.

And two little flower frogs, of which this round one is my favorite. The shape is so satisfying, I want to keep it where I can look at it all the time.

Thanks, Susan!!

    omg – – what is a “flower frog”?

    How extremely thoughtful of her to rescue these items and give them to you. She obviously knows what you’d like.

    PS to Katy: a flower frog is used to make flower arrangements. The “newer” more “current” way is to use that yucky green styrofoam-like stuff. This one would hold stems into place (if you didn’t want to see it, you could add pretty pebbles around it). And, no, I’ve never understood why they call the “support” a “frog” either!
