I love vintage kitchen items...especially those of the whimsical variety! These vintage thingies live on my stove.
I think this guy is called Jolly Chef. I like the name anyway! This spoon rest is the newest addition to the stove top family. An egg separator that I picked up at a flea market makes a nice neighbor.And my favorite stove top residents, the anthropomorphic pear S&P shakers. You gotta watch these guys...they tend to get a little rowdy at times!
