Kitchen Window Objects

Vicky had some pictures of her kitchen window collection on her blog the other day. I thought that was a good idea for a blog post.

The stuff on the shelf is seen every day. Every week the objects are picked up and dusted and the shelf is cleaned. The objects go back in their places. But, why are they there? Why do we put things on the kitchen window shelf?

The pig with the basket on the far left is over 100 years old. It came from my grandfather’s house. The ceramic hand was supposed to be put up for a soap dish, but we have not managed that yet. The red pig is Robert’s mother’s piggy bank. It used to have a rich patina gathered over the years but one day the cleaning ladies scrubbed it all off. The pig on the right is a modern ceramic container.

What objects do you have on your kitchen shelf? I challenge you to snap a picture and post it. No fair cleaning up first, just shoot what you have. Try to figure out why they are there.
