Jazzing up the kitchen - 2
Following on from last kitchen post, some more new items for the house, and spring and summer: a ceramic chicken (filled with shortbread), which will be useful for storing eggs or such, a toy duck and ducklings, made of tin - they move when wound up, just a silly jokey retro toy, a nice blue glass carafe and matching tumblers (one tumbler was smashed, so will have to be returned, and a nice large 'Sorrento' italian bowl with lemon motif, for salads, pasta etc. and some 'Tuscany' little plates for appetizers, antipasti etc.
