Pawing through the kitchen

As I've mentioned before, it would be hard to realize what a complete dork I am about pet-themed items by looking at my house. But that doesn't mean I don't have the stray fantasy about turning my little abode into an all-out testament to all that is critter.

Take the kitchen, for example. The sum total of critter cute rests on this spoon rest I acquired several years ago.
Well, that and a couple of cookie jars that have never actually held a (human) cookie. Oh --- and the paper towels that have cats and dogs on them. And the refrigerator magnets. But I digress, because the idea here is that there is not nearly enough in my kitchen to do justice to the world of cool critter-themed kitchenware, and I appear to be blowing that idea to smithereens by continuing to type.

I mean, look at these measuring cups. How are these not part of my household?

Or these seriously cool salt and pepper shakers from Jonathan Adler: 

And these measuring spoons might inspire me to use measuring spoons when I cook:
We'll need some pot holders and dish towels for all the great food we'll be making:
A new cream and sugar server for when we have guests:

And an apron to hide any stray pet hair:

Did I miss anything?

Oh yeah, it's time to hop, so let's check out some of the other great blogs in the pet blogosphere!

Stopping by to say Hi from the pet blog hop. I just picked up the cutest dog treat jar that looks like a fire hydrant. I found it at a garage sale!

Cuteness overload! Love your stuff.

Dropping by on the blog hop today.That's what the world needs today - another talking cat - but it's cute! Stop by my blog to see a cat say "Let me in" at his owner's window.

Yes, I definitely have to add to the critter theme in this place. How else will people know I live here?

Happy Saturday!

LOL! I don't think you're a dork at all. In fact, I've been wanting to add more animal themes into my house. I just haven't found a way yet (although I have lots of stuff ready to go!). I love the measuring cups for sure! And, the spoon rest. Hmmm,,,,,

Stopping by on the Saturday blog hop!

Woof! Woof! My Golden cookie jar is the most precious thing on my kitchen ... WHY? got all my Delish treats. Happy BLOG HOP Weekend. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

Vicky at PPCT said...

I'm a big enough dork that I chose items I'd actually want in my house. Since nothing here matches anyway, I'm happy to mix and match my critter themes :)

Thanks for stopping by!
