Play With Your Food
have built in shelves in my kitchen above a desk area that were always a source
of irritation. They were not tall enough
to house most of my cook books or much else for that matter. They always looked disorganized.
was at my sister's house and noticed how she and her husband had their fruit
and vegetables in nice bowls out on an open shelf. I realized that my shelves above the desk
could be very practical and beautiful as a changing "still life" with fresh,
seasonal, colorful fruits and vegetables along with a few knick knacks. I use pretty pottery bowls, wire and woven
baskets, and colored glass to hold my bounty.
The added bonus is that I can see at a glance what I have available and
what I need to purchase. Now my shelves
are a source of beauty and inspiration as they continually change with the
you have a place on your kitchen counter or table that you can enjoy the
beautiful colors and textures of your produce before eating it and create your
own still life?
