Ambiance – doormat for a trivet

There are no rules in this world. Ok, maybe a few. In the kitchen it is no different. Not even fun is imposed on us by a rule. Is cooking in your kitchen on a Wednesday evening fun, when you are tired and would rather have someone make you a sandwich? Yes?  Well, not for me. There are those times that cooking is just not fun. But that isn’t what I want to talk about. Maybe next time.

I’m telling you there aren’t any rules constraining us to use a vase for flowers. Or a chair for sitting. Or a kettle for boiling water. Or a doormat for wiping our feet. in a kettle…

Feel free to use a metal doormat for a large trivet next to the stove. Easy and handy for a heavy pot to lift from stove to trivet an large enough for more than one pat and pretty enough to please the eye in the kitchen.

No rules. Only freedom. Imagination. Guts.  Do you have it?

…trivet alias doormat…

Have a rebellious weekend!

à bientôt

  3. What a great idea! My doormat isn’t as pretty and ‘open’ as yours. Mine would look like a doormat on the counter :)

  5. My thoughts, too! Like using a melon- baller to reach the last pickled mushroom or olive in the jar. I had a bright red enamelled pot…sometimes, it held paint brushes , sometimes flowers and sometimes a curry. :-)

  9. Ronelle, this is a great idea! I have decorative metal doormats outside the front and back door. I love the idea that they scrape dirt but never get soiled. I will look for a smaller version for inside.

  10. Oh Ronelle…you are so smart and creative! I love the mint in the kettle and also the metal doormat used for a trivet! Miss you! :)

  11. I’m going to do both these things, I am going to do both, I am going to do……..

    No, definitely, Ronelle, that doormat makes wonderful sense, and I am furiously searching for a aliminium kettle!
