cool can opener

I know this sounds like a kind of dumb post, but I have a cool can opener. You should have one too. I got this one. I was unhappy with the can opener situation–one of the metal standard issue ones gave up the ghost, and the rusty swingline, well it’s all used up. Plus it was so huge! We’d also had one that cuts the top right off–a german one. But it was sometimes hard to pick the lid out. Too much work. So a quick bit of research on amazon, somehow I found this. The Nogent Super Kim. It’s cute, red, and french!

I loved it. I bought three and gave them as christmas presents! It’s so beautiful, tiny and it, so far, is working great.

Every once in awhile an urge to ebay comes along. This time it was vintage plates. In a mere 3 weeks I managed to amass a whole bunch. They came from as far away as Muskoka, shipped to Fort Erie, and from California in the US. They’re kind of a cute bunch don’t cha think?
