Everyday Objects Of Art

This is not the salt mill I use at home. To my delight, my brother, who knows how much I like Alessi products, offered me a set of Queen Chin Salt & King Chin Pepper as a present.

All four of them (the blue, the red, the green and the yellow) are simply beautiful and I smile everytime they catch my eye. However, as I did not think these to be as durable as my metal set, I decided to keep them as everyday art. As mills go, they are quite expensive. As objects of art that will make your life just a little more beautiful, they are not.

And, just because a Queen always needs her monkey, this was the toothpick holder that followed her home!

Life is too short. Treat yourself.
