French Kitchen Accoutrements

Well my painter cancelled because he fell victim to one of the bijillion flu/cold bugs that are still circulating the air. But I decided to play hooky yesterday anyway and try to do some pre-putting-my-house-back-together organization. Mostly I just stared at my piles of "things" and then got side tracked with going through boxes of photos and such. But at least I tried. I think I really need to see the finished product to get really inspired to purge some of my clutter. Because, yes, I somehow have entryway/stairway/hallway clutter. More than I thought, sigh . . . I blame it on my shelves and the "oh, I'll stick that here for a minute" problem I have.

But on to a more fun topic than my organizational failures. I have such a vision of artistry when I think of French cuisine and French cooking. Whether that be creations from the finest restaurants in Paris or in the cuisine from a rustic little kitchen in rural France. With that I love french kitchens and kitchen wares, especially of the vintage variety. I am not much of a cook myself but when I do cook I like to channel that sort of romance for the whole process. And how romantic are all of these lovely antique pieces? I found all of these on Etsy and I think half of them are from one shop, Gris Souris, which is filled with so many French vintage treasures. I don't think I will ever get the vision of those canisters out of my mind, unfortunately my kitchen wouldn't accomodate them (and my cooking skills wouldn't justify them) but I just want to snuggle them they are so perfect! I could stare at them all day long. And how about that top photo? It's a picnic set for those that love eggs and picnics. If I had that set I would definitely take some hardboiled eggs on a picnic, how about you? It is so très doux!

  1. Definitely accoutrements for a romantical kitchen - mine barely has cups and plates right now. Let's just say I've got a lot of work to do still

  3. I don't know if it's because my brain is still in "French mode" or if it was reading the title of your post first, but I read "bijillion flu" as "ba-jee-yon" in a French accent. I'm blaming it on the jet lag!! Obviously I adore all of these products. The little recipe box and those Russian nesting doll type canisters are so cute!

  4. I think I need those egg cups. Like, seriously. Neel and Callum both have egg allergies and for them to eat eggs they have to be seriously COOKED...so sadly not many soft boiled eggs are consumed around here. Not enough to justify me purchasing a gazillion of them, which is what I want. Maybe I could sneak in a couple for props? ;)

  6. I'm a sucker for all things French cookery as well! I can totally relate to the channeling of the romance of how French cook in their kitchens. It seems much more like an experience and a pleasure and not cooking just to eat!
