culinary colors

One of the things we did on our Week Away was just drive around and stop anywhere that looked interesting or someone had to pee.

This was one of our favorite finds (and I think 3 out of 4 Greer's did go visit Mrs. Murphy while we were there.)
A small scale restaurant supply store, dry goods and cafe called Culinary District.

Sweet Man found more than his fair share of things to drool over - gourmet foods he had never seen in person before, professional grade equipment for our dream kitchen, tongs for $2.49...

I found lots of color

3 of my favorite things:Sugar, CheeryColors and Things Sold in Bulk.

Did you know Cherries were so varied? Have you ever had a Passion Fruit cherry?
Can you imagine those flambeed?
 Again, favorite things come together: Pasta and Stripes.

Precious Cupcake Papers. And in bulk.
Pink stripes. Polka-Dots.

I have a new passion for mustard. I think I must be getting old. I would almost buy these just for the containers. The fact that they contain mustard is just a bonus.

Who doesn't love a great bottled soda?

Jimmies! Wouldn't jars of these look great in an open kitchen shelf?
Pure happiness.
I thought you would agree.

I also found a moment to sneak off and try and take a picture of this great scarf my sister Jemimah made for me.

Wbut I was obviously more preoccupied with my reflection and being silly than with my picture taking.
I blame this behavior on the power of being  in the presence of Jimmies in bulk.
Can you blame me?


  1. Oh my Stars and Garters! I must know where to find this wonderful store full of bulk Sanding Sugar and Jimmies! It looks like cake decorator heaven!

  2. Love the scarf, the fabric is beautiful :) I am a cupcake liner addict. You can never have too many cupcake liners, ever.

  3. Love the scarf AND the silly pictures. Blame it on the Jimmies, cherries, and Mustard. Oh, my!

    Sounds like my kind place and vacation style too.


  4. This is the coolest place! I am wondering what a "mandrarin" is, though.

  5. What a beautiful and colorful shop! And I love your scarf! Think your sister would give us a tutorial? :)
