I have a large copper pot collection and have been looking for a way
to bring it out of the cupboards. I considered hanging it over my
island, but after looking at lots of options to do that, I decided that
I would hang it over the cooktop instead.
Many of the pot racks that can be purchased, are very contemporary in
design and I wanted something more rustic. I was about to head to Houston
to a wrought iron fabricator when I discovered this rack on Chip and Joanna's
Magnolia Market website.
It has the rustic element I have been looking for. My only complaint is
that the hooks have fairly wide ends, so a few of my pots won't hang.
I decided that I would just add a few simple wrought iron hooks to
the rack to accommodate the sauce and saute pans too. I think that will
just be fine.
I think that the copper warms up the coolness of the stainless steel,
and it gives me something to look at when I am cooking. That's a
good thing because I spend lots of time in front of this stove!
Bentley and I saw another snake on our nightly walks this
weekend. It was a small one, and it slithered into some
vegetation on the curb and into a yard. I am sure we are seeing
snakes because the Guadalupe River is over it's banks and
the snakes have lost some of their usual burrows. Let's hope
they can move back home soon!
Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley
