It all started with a teapot. We decided that a teapot would be a nice thing to have, and as we poked around for one for our wedding registry, we found Gustav. He didn’t become “Gustav” until after he arrived, but the name was an obvious one upon meeting one another.
Gustav the Elephant Tea Pot
Sometimes he dresses up like a sheep.
John the Whale Water Jug
Our Jonathan Adler whale jug is strong and whimsical, like his namesake, Pixar leader John Lasseter.
Nessie the Loch Ness Ladle
Another gem from the registry, Nessie makes our soups and stews legendary.
The Puppies in Outfits on Oven Gloves
These brave, adorably clothed pups keep our hands nice and cool. Please leave name suggestions in the comments.
Spot the Big Bang Theory Cow…
It’s not just me! Penny in The Big Bang Theory has a butter dish shaped like a cow. Every time it appears in the background I’m like look. We could have had Bessie the Butter Dish. But nooo…
I doubt Penny identifies as a minimalist, but the lesson remains the same: if you have to buy an item for your home, choose one that makes you super happy.
