My spoon rest broke last week. Broke right in half when I put a hot spoon in it. I use one a lot so I went online searching for another one.

So I was looking on And guess what I came across?

I found a red kitchen scale as well as a red spoon rest. The spoon rest is made of cast iron with a rooster in the middle of the handle. And boy, is it heavy!

The spoon rest was under $10.

The 22 pound kitchen scale was very affordable too.

The kitchen scale with the stainless steel tray was $21.99. And it looks quite retro vintage I think.

I just love finding red items for my red and white kitchen.

I think the red and white items look so cheerful against the “faux” white subway tiles Kendra put up, and the shiny white kitchen counter I DIYed.

The scale came in three pieces. The scale itself, the stainless steel tray and the red piece that attaches the two. Simple to put together.

I’ve always wanted a red scale for my kitchen.

I have found a few other useful red items for my kitchen lately. The other items are not here yet. But of course I’ll show them to you when they are delivered.

When I walk into my little apartment kitchen the red and white just makes me smile.

  2. Your spoon rest ans scale are both really cheerful. I love a spoon rest and the oner you got will last a lifetime and I love that too. I also love the 2 “cutting boards” you show in your pictures. They seem to be pretty “fancy” so I’m assuming you use then as serving boards or simply decor. I’d have a hard time cutting with a knife on their lovely patterns. Thank you for sharing. I live in a small space and all you’re ti[s help!

    how are you so lucky finding such chic/farmhouse items? They’re gorgeous! Your red scale begs to feature some of your garden’s tomatoes and maybe a pepper! The red spoon rest is going to be indestructible! I love them… sigh. Thank you for sharing.

    P.S. sending prayers for your body/back issues. There is nothing worse than dull pain that we have to drag around…
