You Capture...The Kitchen

Thanks to Tiffany (@ No Ordinary Homestead) I have decided to take part in the You Capture Thursdays hosted by Beth (@ I Should Be Folding Laundry). Rather than me explain it all to you, you can just check out how Beth came up with the idea and how to participate. In the meantime, this week's theme is "In The Kitchen", so below is what I see in my kitchen...


Peppers - waiting to be sliced, chopped, and frozen for pots of winter chili

Peter loves straws - though these have been sadly full of holes :-(

My pot filler - probably the coolest and least used item in my kitchen

It was interesting what I saw once I uploaded the pictures (like dust on some of the items that didn't make the blogging cut!). If you'd like to participate, be sure to link up to Beth's current You Capture post. I'm no professional photographer, which is proof positive that anyone can join in the fun! :-)

  2. I love the capsicum. It's so weird seeing all these photos of capsicums, and reading people calling them peppers!
    The last photo looks really cool too.

  3. I love that pepper! I have a couple of pepper plants that are suppose to turn yellow, but they just stay green.

  8. Thanks so much for stopping by. Celiac is quite a challenge in a world full of wheat. Let me just say that the blog GingerLemonGirl has some of the best gluten free recipes. A great place to go when feeling overwhelmed. I go there a lot! Love the pot filler pic!

  9. Old as I am, I have never heard of a pot filler!

    I love the colorful, holey straws. :)

  14. Those are such FUN shots!!!!
    Love that faucet one. I too see some frightening things in my photos that I don't seem to notice in real life - like DUST and finger prints all over windows and piles laundry everywhere - yikes.
    Thank goodness for CROPPING - HA!

  16. Love your pepper shot! I didn't even think of cutting & freezing some for winter meals. I always just pay a ridiculous amount for them all winter long. Thanks for mentioning it. :)

  19. Hello everyone and thanks for stopping by AND commenting!

    1) Yes, there is such a thing as a pot filler. I first saw one in a home magazine and knew that one day, I must have one above my stove. My husband told me that the wall was already in place, I could forget it. A year later when we were staring at studs, I looked at him and said, "Pot filler". :-) I found this one online for under $100 and a few days later it was sitting on my front porch. Romantic story. Love at first sight. Etc. Now, here's the ugly reality - I rarely use it. It's very cool and lots of people ask about it and then want one. BUT...although I can fill large pots with it (which I rarely need to do unless I'm cooking pasta - but now we're on the South Beach diet and that doesn't happen very often)...I still have to carry the full pot to the sink to dump it. End of story. It's delightful and I still love it, but...

    2) Adena asked about the type of camera I use. It's nothing fancy, but I love it! My camera is a Kodak EasyShare Z812 IS that I purchased from Amazon almost three years ago. It has been all over the world and captured some great shots and I love it. I'm still learning how to use it actually. It's a HD (video), 12X IS zoom, and 8.1 mega pixels. I'm sure I could find something better now, but in the meantime, I'm sticking with my Kodak. It's my second one and I've been very pleased with both (great value).

  21. I'm experiencing pot-filler envy right now. Wished I had one at home. Great work on the shot.
