more everyday pics

April 17th, 2009 at 10:19 am

I have decided to post an 'Everyday Pics' entry every week. Sometimes there will be a few photos, other times I may only be able to muster one shot. But I am going to do my best to do a post every week. I like sharing small snapshots - I hope others do too.

I like to go op-shopping and find things like this:

I was particularly proud of this flour container as I also found the creamer and sugar ones which matched. The flour one I remember in particular, as I read the price tag wrong. Initially I thought it said $10.50, and I put it back on the shelf. Then I picked it up again because I really liked it, and realised it said $1.50. Then I got to the cashier and they told me it was half price day!

My beloved Global knives:

I used them at a restaurant I worked at, and ever since then fell in love with them. They are made like Samurai swords - the steel is heated and folded many times to create great strength. They are also perfectly balanced handle-to-blade. I was beginning to save for them when Dad bought them for me for my birthday.

This is one of my favourite dresses in my wardrobe:

It's also the one that the boning dug into me - which is fixed now. I bought it in 2007 for a friends wedding. I can never find excuses to wear it, but tomorrow I am wearing it to an engagement party. I just love it, the floaty lace and the silky satin sash...

Well, I hope you like the latest instalment of my 'everyday pics'. More to come next week!

    I love my Global knives. When it comes to knives, I'll take quality over quantity any day. I only have 2: Chef & Paring. Chef was purchased at Yoshikin in Niigata, Japan.
    I'm saving up for a Utility knife (haha) ... I figure that a set of 3 is really all I need. I expect I'll be using them until the day I die.

    I also have what used to be called the Shinkansen Water Sharpener. I believe it's now called the Mino Sharp.

    scfr: DF bought me a ceramic sharpener which is really really good. you only need to put it through three or four times and it gets rid of all the burs and it is like new again. he went into a shop to ask about which type to use for the global knives, and they said the water-stone one, or the ceramic one.
