Reminiscent of Carrol Boyes’ “Lady in the Tub”, imagine having a woman’s body in the middle of your stove that also serves a purpose. Enter Carrol’s cast aluminum spoon rest. Both functional and fun it is not only serviceable but affordable and the perfect length to hold even longer utensils, (9.3” by 3.2”). Every time I show this to a customer it brings smiles both because of the humor as well as the unexpected function of the gift they intend to buy…usually for themselves. The price is more than right at $32. EW

Blogging is new for me, but great product identification is not. There’s a hot gift for brides that won’t stay on our shelves. It’s Claude Dozorme’s cheese knives. The colors look like a poster for sherbert; orange, gold and pink over mother of pearl handles (There are blue/green shades as well). The blades are for the purpose – serrated for slicing bread, a hard cheese knife as well as a spreader. The story behind the blades is even more appealing. When the company began in Laguiole, France in 1902, the place where the blades were being made had no heat, so the men were bundled in clothing with their dogs keeping their feet and legs warm, while they straightened and sharpened their blades. The product has developed to become a beautiful and more sophisticated gift and perfect for the bride. EW
