Thankful Thursdays: I am so grateful for the friends I made here on  Active Rain. I am always un-expectantly surprised by the thoughtful gifts Diane & I have received. Words can not express how grateful we are for the many kind gift we received over the years.

I have received cookbooks, motivational quotes on woodcarvings and the list goes on and on.

Needless to say, the other day I received a package, well it was measuring spoons. Not just ordinary kitchen measuring spoons but artwork that happened to be with cats and fish on them.

Diane and I had a discussion and even though I am the Chef and it is my kitchen, she still has a say so about things in the kitchen after all it is her house😩.

Clearly the compromise was, that I should not use them, since they are so beautiful and should be displayed next to the counter and the window.

Well I was fine with it. Now the next philosophical disagreement was which way the spoons should face.  I am looking forward to finding out what your thoughts are in the comments below. Which way should the spoons face??

Good morning Endre. Looks like someone is going to repaint the kitchen. As for the spoons, don't use them since they are better utilized displayed. Easy to change the look. Maybe inward facing in the odd months and outward facing in the even months. Enjoy the view.

Endre those look more like jewelry than measuring spoons.  They are beautiful.

George Souto  you are so right, hence it was an easy sale for Diane to convince me to hang it on the kitchen wall... now to the paint job that is another story.... fighting it, Endre

Hello Endre and I think more guys should be in charge of the kitchen.  When we got married, my wife only knew how to open up cans, that would not work for me, so I cook Monday to Friday or Saturday and she cooks Sunday night.  See has the Chinese restaurant on speed dial for that night!

Endre Barath, Jr. - I remember posting similar measuring spoons awhile back and I remember how much you liked them. I purchased them a long time ago and never found them again. If they were easily available, I would purchase more and give them away for people like you because you do appreciate what you get from clients and members of AR. I am so glad Nina Hollander, Broker found a set and thought of you highly enough to send them your way. Nina is very thoughtful. She has a great memory and a sincere heart. There are many special people here on AR.
