In My Kitchen: May 2014


At the start of every month, Celia hosts In My Kitchen where friends share a few items of interest in their kitchen. To join in the fun, which has gone global,  just pop over to her very popular blog, Fig Jam and Lime Cordial, and show everyone read/comment on other people’s posts.

In my kitchen this month is my new Spanish pottery water jug. I was at a local farm shop, browsing for early fresh veg in season. I didn’t find any veg that caught my eye but I fell in love with this happy-coloured little jug. I’ve been looking for something cheery to hold water for a meal, and I smile every time I use this little charming piece of pottery.

Tell me what’s in your kitchen – is something interesting cooking?

      Thanks, Polly. I’m very fond of it!

  2. Love it, Misky! We’ve been using a colourful jug on the table as well, and it’s amazing how much nicer it makes a meal. Yours is gorgeous – love the bright spring-like colours!

      Not yet, Lizzy. Had a frost last night, so we covered seedlings for their protection.

    Lovely jug. Makes me remember Mijas pottery; where my daughter lives.

  7. Pretty jug. I can imagine sitting out in the sunshine with this on the table.

    Lovely look at this pretty jug in your kirchen

      Thanks, Sally! 🙂

  9. It seems water jugs are a bit of a theme this month. I’ve seen one on Glenda’s Passionfruit Garden too. Good to see though the fruit & veg let you down, you still came away with something!

      The cabbages are composted but everything else is growing happily!

    I almost bought a similar jug yesterday just because it was so cheerful. Alas, I decided it didn’t go in my old New England kitchen.🙂

    1. Misky says:

      I can certainly understand that!

      Thanks. We are enjoying its cheerfulness.

  12. Oh I love the happy jug. I’m going to be on the lookout for something cute too.

    1. Misky says:

      Hope you find what you’re looking for!

  13. G’day! I love Spanish pottery and love things that are different and unique!
    Cheers! Joanne

      I also bought the matching oil drizzler yesterday!

  14. What a lovely jug. I do love bright (useful) pottery.

  15. Misky, your Spanish water jug is absolutely gorgeous! (I also loved your “short ‘n’ sweet” IMK post… just now playing “catch up!”) There’s something soooo refreshing about serving water from a glass or pottery pitcher… very appealing… mine is from my mother-in-law — an etched glass pitcher they received as a wedding gift over 60 years ago! Drink up, enjoy, and thank you for the concise glimpse into your kitchen this month.
