Around Nnenna’s Nest #1

Blog photo templates from Pugly Pixel

As a new blog feature, I thought it would be fun to show you guys little bits and pieces of my home!  =) When I moved into my new apartment, one of the things I was most excited about was decorating my new place.  Even though I lived in a cute apartment over the summer (I was subletting from a friend), it’s so nice to have a place to call your own.  One of my first stops for home goods was Anthropologie where I picked up the pretty measuring cups, tea towel, and bowls pictured above.  Afterwards, I found those sweet little measuring spoons in a store called Bowery Kitchen in Chelsea Market.  Lastly, I spotted that star-shaped napkin holder during an Ikea trip and it was love at first sight.  I mean, isn’t it just perfect for me?!  All of these things contribute to making our apartment more homey and of course it’s more fun to cook with cute utensils! =)

Tell me: What’s your favorite item in your kitchen and where did you find it?

Also, I had a great time this past weekend on my first trip to Washington, D.C.- pictures to come on Friday!

    Great new feature! :)
    I would have to say my favorite kitchen item is an old, huge pot that belonged to my great-grandma. We always use it to cook a Japanese stew for the new year, and my grandma has said that she will pass it along to me someday.

  4. Everything’s so cute! There’s actually very little in my kitchen that’s cute…I don’t spend much time in there and pretty much just have the basics with no frills.

    Really cute patterns. I need to get some more dishes and cups and things; our collection has dwindled over the years as they’ve broken and we’ve moved. Will have to check out Anthropologie. :)

    I LOVE all of anthros homegoods…. but i usually satisfy my need for cute things in the kitchen with trips to the thrift store and tjmaxx. I love my fry pans that have bold floral prints on them, and vintage pyrex mixing bowls.

  20. I love Anthropologie, they have the cutest home decor (not to mention clothes) and I’m very partial to their kitchen stuff. I have a few of their bowls that I can’t wait to use, I’m saving them for my future place. I love the measuring spoons they are too adorable.

    I have a good amount of stuff for my future kitchen, mostly little stuff, one of my favorite things is my tea pot shaped timer. It is so cute, I hope to paint it though since it is just white.

    Great post and great kitchen stuff.
