Even though I keep my cooking to a minimum - I find myself fascinated and somewhat obsessed with really good knives and other random gadgets. I suppose that makes sense since my shoe rack is taller than me, and my horses have more blankets, boots and bits than they could ever want or need...
So I like to shop. And I have an appreciation for things that are well designed for their job.
That's why I nearly peed when we received are bad-ass new knife block. Skeptical that a plain 'ol knife block could be worthy of a bad-ass title?
Well stand aside - this little gem has solved my age old problem of managing my knife collection to fit the available slots on traditional knife blocks. Instead, this thing is basically a giant hairbursh framed in a box, so you can just stab knives (and shears, and whatever else) into it for safe keeping however you see fit.

In other news, it was a really gorgeously sunny day in Seattle yesterday and little dog scampered out onto her dock to see if anyone was sipping margaritas yet. I think she's ready for Summer and afternoons lazing on the water... I can't say I blame her, but I'm pretty sure we've got...ohhhhhh.... another six months of rainy crap until that's a viable option.
