I have a weird thing for lobsters. I don’t know why, but something about lobster-themed items is just so freaking adorable and kitchy and awesome, I can’t resist it. I love lobster-themed stuff almost as much as I love eating lobsters.
Come on, how adorable are these salt and pepper shakers? My great-grandma had a collection of salt and pepper shakers that I would kill to get my hands on now. I fear that one day I’ll end up with some sort of china cabinet filled with hideous little salt and pepper shakers.
This casserole dish is amazing. I love that the handles are lobster tails – adorable!
These next two platters are so awesomely retro and 50s/60s cool, I can’t stand it. I can just picture Betty Draper serving Don something on these.
« J’ai le goût des homards, qui sont tranquilles, sérieux, savent les secrets de la mer, n’aboient pas… » Included in every order- a card with the translation:
“I have a liking for lobsters. They are peaceful, serious creatures. They know the secrets of the sea, they don’t bark…” Supposedly the French poet, Gérard de Nerval, would walk his pet lobster with a ribbon. This was his reasoning for adopting a lobster as opposed to a dog!
