Well not exactly but I have been working with some VERY CUTE cooking chippie hehe!  They come in small or large versions...I used the small ones.  I just love the teensy fork...the prongs are perfectly cut and that kettle is adorable isn't it?

For my first project I covered a cookery book for my daughter.  You know...the ones that you write your own recipes in....she is getting into cooking at last haha!  I gesso'd the pieces first then coloured the handles to match the paper (mmm...looks pink in the photo doesn't it, but it really does match ) and painted the blades etc with a silver krylon pen.  The chefs hat has been painted white & glossy accented, then glued onto my daughters head.  The little plate is an oriental stamp I have.  I covered the timer with matching paper and glued it onto some ribbon to make a bookmark for the book.  The whole idea was to make it like a place setting...I think it works.

I had some pieces left and used them to make a set of ATC's....yes, the pieces are that dinky :D  I love the kettle & immediatly thought of 'Polly put the kettle on'.

For the other ATC's I have used images from a book which I thought were appropriate for the chippie piece.  Loving that saucepan!!!

These pieces were so much fun to work with and would be perfect for anyone who loves to cook!  Thank you for looking, HUGS XXX
