Kathryn's Favorite Things- Guest Blog

Hi all! I'm so glad Amanda asked me to stop by today. Because my blog, Snippet & Ink, is almost entirely about weddings, I don't usually have a chance to share things that I love outside the wedding world. There is so much beautiful, delicious, clever, brilliant, etc. stuff out there, that it was tough to choose just a few of my favorites, but here are the ones I did pick, in no particular order...

1. My Cartier Tank watch

I've always wanted one of these classic watches, but never thought I'd get to own one! This was a gift from my mom who found it on eBay for only $200. It still has the original band which is totally worn and I love it.

2. Angie's Kettle Corn

You know those samples they have out sometimes at Whole Foods? Well I tried some of this tasty kettle corn last time I was there and now I'm hooked. If no one was watching I could easily eat an entire bag by myself.

3. Thonet bentwood chairs

I want my kitchen table to be surrounded by these simple yet beautiful chairs. And if I can't afford a whole kitchen table's worth, then I'll settle for one really special one in my bedroom or living room.

4. Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov

Books have always been one of my favorite things and there are so many that I love, but Lolita is still my favorite. It is brilliant and horrifying and beautiful all at once, and I could happily read it again and again.

5. Gleena dessert plates

I would love to serve dessert on these paper-thin porcelain plates. Their delicate simplicity would work equally well at a casual outdoor dinner and a more formal get-together, and I think ice cream would taste even better eaten off one of them.

I just love those plates.
Think I must get some to use in my stories.
