It was my mother’s birthday a few weeks ago. She’s always complaining that she has too much to do.
So I gave her a helping hand …
It’s the most versatile hand you’ve ever met.
Observe how much it can portray through just a gesture.
Yup. It’s a pepper mill. And a handsome one at that. Heh.
I saw this at the cash of my local kitchen store, The Keeping Room and HAD to have it. (if you click on The Keeping Room link … yes that is Jacque Pepin standing beside a lifesized stuffed bear).
I didn’t even know it was a pepper mill and I loved the thing. It was sitting by the cash register with a wooden spatula in its fingers. When they told me it was a pepper mill I screamed out a whole bunch of random swear words that didn’t even make any sense and ran out of the store with it without paying.
Here … I’ll explain.
I actually just borrowed the pepper mill so I could do a post on the thing. I couldn’t justify buying it for myself, but how could this exist and I not share it with you? The owner of the store, knowing my blog, my level of insanity and dedication to making the lives of people who say no to me miserable, agreed. She let me take it home to photograph with the promise I’d return it. One day.
Then my mother caught wind of the pepper mill and decided SHE had to have it too. So, being the general time of her birthday and knowing if she owned it, I could borrow it, my boyfriend and I decided to give it to her.
I know it’s a little early to be thinking about Christmas or Hanukah but I have a feeling these things are gonna sell out, so if you want one order it here through Amazon or you can contact the manufacturer.
No. I’m not getting paid for this. But only because no one’s offered. I’d totally take payment for it.
