Cabinet artwork

I'm admiring the painting high on the right, on the cabinet. Would be nice to see it straight on.

Steve Allen would be proud.

I can't see a bread box (or anything like a bread box) without immediately bursting into laughs. Makes for an awkward moment at Ikea, I tell you.

Dishtowel drying rack

One of those 20th Century kitchen items that used to be ubiquitous and still should be. Got ours at an estate sale and use it every day.
