Wooden Handles, Vintage Utensils
I love mystery objects. Especially the ones that look really useful, but still keep you guessing. I picked up the little yellow mystery object a week ago. I love the worn, optimistic yellow handle.
I certainly have soft spot for wooden handled utensils as you can see from this quick raid of the kitchen drawer. I love the aged patina the layers of paint get over time and the distinguishing details like twin tone or stripes. I can't work out if you are supposed to have everything matchy matchy or have mismatched handles so you can always find the one you want.
And in case you were wondering what the little yellow and green items were for, they really are a lot friendlier than they look. Meet my new peach pitter and apple corer. Now there is nothing standing in the way of an old fashioned pantry full of glowing jars of golden queen peaches.
