~corralling kitchen clutter~

Do you find that your kitchen drawers easily can get full of lots of little things? 
Or that the things you seem to use every time you cook, are up too high on a shelf?
I found a great rectangular basket recently and decided to corral all the items I use every day in one easy to reach place.

 Remember when I made a cookbook?
Our families favorite recipes are right at hand.
 Wooden cheese knives from Pottery Barn are all together in a vintage bowl.
 Lots of spoons for tasting cookie dough!
 A good pure vanilla~a must have in my kitchen!
I placed a wooden bread board in the bottom of the basket so everything stays upright and doesn't tip over.
 Wooden spoons and more silverware are together in marble and ceramic canisters.
 Fresh fruits and veggies nearby.

There you have it! 
My friend Heather has a really cute little spot in her kitchen that is similar to this.
You can see it here.
P.S. I just added a few more items to my etsy shop!

Supercool idea! I have a stash of little ceramic jars that would work perfectly with this, along with my favorite wooden spoons and my most-used kitchen tips cookbook. Thanks so much for sharing.
Love your etsy shop!

Awesome basket! I'd love to find one like that! I like to keep things handy like that too. I am not blessed with a ton of counter space so I'm a little limited as to what I can have out but I'm also short on cupboard space too so I have to make use of every single space to the max!

LOVE this!!! The cookbook idea is stunning also. We made one for friends who were adopting to raise money. Nothing as beautiful as this though.

I spy Dundee marmalade in one if the photographs. We have a guest in tonight from Dundee.

I have some of these little vignettes in our kitchen, too. They are my favorites to look at it!
Yours looks great, friend.
