When I was out looking for little trinkets to give away over Valentine's Week this year, I must confess I did buy something for myself. I had actually passed by this polka dotted box at T.J. Maxx many times, but then one day I saw it said "Polly Put the Kettle On" and whatever the spoon rest inside looked like, it was just $3.
Interestingly, I have actually *needed* a spoon rest! When I'm cooking spaghetti or something with a messy sauce, I use vintage rose dishes to hold the spoons, and I'm forever staining them, which isn't good. This $3 piece, I don't think I'll mind messing up!
