Â I had been drawn to the window of a shop recently because of the cute things for theÂ home thatÂ it had inside. It was the usual utilitarian stuff that most homes have, such as nut crackers or cheese graters but these were different. They were cute, they were colorful and they made you smile.
Â Imagine my delight when I was given two of them for Christmas. The first one is this darling cheese grater called Nana, a name for grandmothers, I believe.
Â On the side of the package it says:
Once upon in a plate
Round, round, round
A hill of cheese
High, high, high
That an Italian princess
Pretty, pretty, pretty
With a metal dress
Which scratch, scratch, scratch
Gave during a dancing night.
The company is called Pylones and it is Parisian. Their web site shows many more cute things.Monsoon Marketplace – Pylones Of Paris
I notice that they also have two stores in New York City.
The other gift was the two salad servers looking like a comical man and woman diving into the water.
