I made another swipe at unpacking basement boxes, and look what I came up with… a gathering of retro kitchen gadgets.
Don’t they look like they’re having a conversation? Then there’s what I think of as the Gort Factor (after my favorite robot, from The Day the Earth Stood Still, 1951) — that sturdy and streamlined mid-century look. They do kind of look like little poseable robots. I know I can’t keep them, but out of guilt for hiding them so long, I polished them up and will do my best to find them good homes.
Meanwhile, Happy Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa/New Year. And, do you see that winter sunbeam playing on the edge of the table? If you’re in the northern hemisphere, welcome back the light — Merry Solstice to all (11:48PM last night, EST).
