My newsletter subscribers know all about this new line of blog posts! I have decided to write about local treasures that I find for my kitchen. Life has been a little exceptionally challenging and difficult so I have been partaking in some shopping therapy, investing in pretty tools and vessels for my foodie photos.
It all started in the store Jenny Jib in Lunenburg when my sister Jamie was visiting. Nobody inspires me to shop like Jamie. She has this ability to clarify the things you want and I only had two panic attacks while we shopped! Spending money on anything but food stresses me out.
Jenny Jib is where I bought these beautiful lead-free pewter measuring spoons that are made in Pugwash by Basic Spirit, simply called birds measuring spoons. Many of you commented on them recently so I knew this is where I wanted to begin sharing my treasures.
I love these spoons! At first they reminded me of Paula Deen’s measuring spoons that I dreamed of having one day. These are an even better fit for me because of the birds, I love birds. A perfect tool for my kitchen. They were a bit of an investment but absolutely worth it. My only issue is that they are a little bendy which freaks me out but maybe that is just because they are pewter.
The store had many household treasures that I would have loved to have bought! Here is another set of measuring spoons. They all came in a very lovely gift box too and I would love those starfish napkin rings!
Jenny Jib is a beautiful and eclectic store. We thoroughly enjoyed looking over everything and I would love to go back.
The unique art in particular caught my eye. Everything was stunning and unusual.
If these were real spoons and not meant for the garden I would have bought the sage and basil ones for sure! Heck, if I got to go back I would probably buy them anyway, I had never seen anything quite like them.
I have been wanting to step it up a little with my blog. Investing in beautiful measuring spoons and sharing them in my foodie photos felt like a great place to begin! Every time I use them I remember the stunning day Reg, Jamie and I had the day we went to Lunenburg together. They always make me smile.
You already know how much I love those spoons, and everything else in the store is so gorgeous as well. I believe it’s well worth the investment to get the simple things that make our surroundings and home a happier place.
I saw some spoons I adored awhile back at Homesense, but didn’t buy them. When I finally went back they were gone. I was so disappointed. I wish I had someone like Jamie to shop with, I probably would’ve got them.

I agree Ava and it was nice to be able to do so. Oh that is so sad about your Homesense spoons! There is something about striking while the iron is hot but I hate shopping remorse. So glad I didn’t have it this time and hope you find your spoons again soon.
Seriously, it’s crazy how much easier it is to shop with Jamie, it’s been like that since we were kids.
Beautiful products, Suzie, and what a nifty store! Thank you so much for sharing. 🙂

Jennie Jib is one of my favorite stores as well, Suzie. I have the lighthouse measuring spoons; I love your bird ones.

Thank you Kenora and it is my pleasure! Sandy, it is a lovely store, isn’t it? Oh that is so cool you have the lighthouse ones!
I miss Lunenburg, I should go back to NS someday.
Wow! That looks like just an amazing store! I LOVE your spoons!! Mine are all junky – I’ll have to invest in a lovely set like this some day!

I’d love to shop there some day — it looks like my type of store! I find it very relaxing to look at beautiful things in stores. Luckily I don’t (always) need to buy and possess them to feel the desired enjoyment — otherwise my credit card would be a smokin’ hunk o’ plastic.
I think the spoons are beautiful. I love to get special things for my home that remind me of special times in my life.
