Impulse Purchase Put to Use

I just know some of you are wondering what the heck I did with that metal thing with the bird on top. Remember I showed this to you a few days ago?
Well, I found a spot to hang it in the kitchen and I clipped a few magazine pages to it for future meal inspiration.  It looked like a mess--ripped out magazine clippings hung on the wall--was not even cute.  . . sorry, did not a pic of that.

When I got up Sunday morning inspiration of another kind struck.  I went to the basement and brought up a box of my red-handled vintage kitchen utensils. I wired them to the cage.
Ta da!  I like this  much better!

DH does not need any meal inspiration. He's doing pretty good on his own.  He made square burgers to fit on the grilled bread...genius!

Ladies in the grocery store are even asking him for recipes.  Saturday an 80-something year old lady struck up a conversation in the produce aisle and was amazed that he did all the shopping and even cooked.  She asked him what he was cooking for dinner and then asked for his recipe for cucumbers in sour cream.  He got a big kick out of that.


  1. Oh, for pete's sake...I knew you would come up with something clever. I really love that way of displaying your utensils.
    Maybe your husband would like to post one of his recipes...

  2. Those red handle tools are very desirable! And a man that can cook is even more so!

    1. LOL, Patti. That sounds like a Confucius say................ha ha. I called J in to read your comment. He says "thank you". :)

  3. I guess he's a keeper, Zoey, and so is your birdcage utensil holder!

  4. I like what you did with the utensil holder! You are lucky to have a man that will grocery shot and cook for you.

  5. Love that metal bird thingy, Zoey. It is really darling. I wish the man that lives here (hubster) could cook. It used to be if he DID cook the kids said that when the fire alarm went off dinner was ready-xo Diana

  6. I like what you did with the rack Zoey and love the red handled utensils. Your basement seems to be a treasure trove. :)

  7. Cute idea! It's nice to see your interesting collection.
    Good for hubby for his cooking skills. I wish he'd rub off on some other guy I know...mine grills, but it's hit or miss sometimes.
