Wooden utensils of delight

I’ve taken to making my own nut butter and jam.  The nut butter is definitely a result of being the proud (temporary) owner of a MagiMix, and I think the jam making stems from it being strawberry season and me not really loving fresh strawberries.  Both pursuits make me feel pretty amazing – like an absolute domestic goddess, and also like I’ve got my shit together (when all evidence points to the contrary).
I saw these gorgeous utensils on Etsy, and I imagined them scooping and spreading my homemade strawberry jam and cashew nut butter onto warm bread. They’d really cause a stir in my kitchen (get it?).







Etsy ears

Let’s imagine for a moment that South Africa’s postal service wasn’t shot (and I had a beefy budget).  I think it’s fair to say I’d shop-til-I-dropped on Etsy.  Not that it’s easy to find exactly what you want on the site.  It’s super frustrating in many ways, much like sifting meticulously through sale rails (a skill I don’t have).  You know the good stuff is there, you just can’t find it without trawling through the worst of flea-market trinkets.  And then, voilà! You happen upon beauty!
Here’s my fantasy list (on an ear theme … it’s mid-winter here and my ears are possibly my best feature right now).
