I am taking part in Kelli's Show and Tell. To see more, check out her blog.
This spice rack was given to me several years ago by my Aunt Shirley. When I look at it, I am reminded of her and childhood memories of time spent with her.
This set is cleverly designed to look like books on a shelf. The shelf is made of wood and each spice container is ceramic.
Each "book" has a hen painted on it and has holes on top for dispensing the spices. The name of the spice is painted at the top and Vol.I, Vol.II,etc. is at the bottom.
There are two ceramic drawers with roosters painted on the front. I assume that the drawers are for storing dried herbs. I don't put spices or herbs in these. I have always been afraid of breaking them. So it sits on my shelf to enjoy.
When I was growing up, Aunt Shirley was always fun to be around (and still is!). One of my favorite memories is when they would come to our house for a visit and stay overnight. She would sleep on the floor with my cousins and me. We would talk and giggle until we all fell asleep. I love you Aunt Shirley-- and I treasure all those childhood memories and this treasured gift from you. Thanks for making me feel special as a young girl... and now:)
