Roosters and Cookbooks

I have wanted a cookbook stand for quite some time now.  You know how it is when you are trying to cook and read the recipe and the pages keep closing?  In the past, I tried setting cans on top of the page, the corner of a bowl etc.  But the pages kept closing anyway.



I love to cook.  I have been struggling with cookbooks for 35 years.  Why did I wait so long?

I love my new cookbook stand with the rooster on top.

p.s. I have had company for a few days and am behind on my visits.  I will catch up soon!
Welcome Home,
Penny

This is a great stand, Penny! Only you could make a cookbook on it's stand look so pretty! I spy little Roosters! :)
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Your cookbook stand is great. Is it a Paula Deen one? I like the way the front comes up a bit higher to help hold the book open. Mine is a titch too low.

I'm checking out your followers and, for me, they are showing 7 at a time all 766 of them. Nope, let's correct that, they must have been loading, now they're showing 4 rows of 6. Interesting.

Hope that you had a great time with your company and that the weather was cooperative.

Cute book holder Penny! I was just thinking I hadn't seen a post in a few days and wondering what fun you might be having:>)

I love your new cookbook holder also. Why didn't I go out and get one years ago?

Currently I am using magnets to hold pages to the cupboard hinges...sigh.

It's very pretty, Penny! I finally bought a cookbook stand while on vacation in Napa Valley last year. One of the winery gift shops had a sale I knew it was a bargain when I saw it marked down to $10!

Very cute - and useful!

I don't know why we wait so long to buy something we need! So practical.
This gives me an idea for using a wrought iron easel I have for a cookbook stand. Isn't that funny how just seeing someone elses post turns on a light bulb in your head?
Have fun with your company!

Connie said...

It's both functional and pretty! I think I need one too now!

Kim said...

You are so right Penny. We should all get one of those to make our lives easier. Yours is adorable with the little roo!
xoxo,
Kim

I love how this one holds the book. I have a couple but the books lie at more of an angle. Would like to find one like yours. It's great! Is it adjustable, so as to have the book lean backward more and upright also?

Manuela@A Cultivated Nest said...

That's a really cute one! I just realized I rarely use cookbooks since most of my recipes come from somewhere on the net!

Sam @ My Carolina Kitchen said...

What a cute cookbook holder Penny. The ones that don't hold your book just right are so frustrating. Looks like you've found a real winner plus it fits your decor to a tee.

Hi Penny,
That is a lovely cookbook stand. That rooster is perfect for your kitchen. I have been browsing your posts to catch up. Summer has taken me away and I have not been keeping up with blogging. I feel so guilty, when I can't visit my favorites. You are one of my dear favorites always.

Have a beautiful day.

Mary said...

Mine is a functional clear plastic one which does keep the pages clean - the book slides inside - but your's is so much more elegant, love it Penny!

Hugs - Mary

Ceekay- Thinkin of Home said...

Very pretty....I like those too...but no counter space. I hope you are enjoying it after waiting so long!!

Amy @MaisonDecor said...

I love these Penny~you will too. Mine has two chains with ball weights to hold the pages down. They are a good (and pretty) invention.

Penny said...

Penny, Enjoy your company. We have friends coming in too. When the dust settles we will get together. Miss you.
Hugs, Penny

Penny said...

PS. Thanks for your support on the contest I entered. Should have known that you would have my back. You are the best! Love ya.

Donna~One Simple Country Girl said...

Love it! Can you please share where you purchased it? I'd love to have one and it would go perfect in my "rooster" themed kitchen!

All That Glitters said...

Super cute! Is it a Paula Deen one?

Mimi Sue said...

It is just so you Penny! Perfect. Mimi
