Dual Functionality

Hello and good morning readers,

While I've been on the lookout for a cookbook holder.......I've had the solution to my problem right under my nose.......Not sure how I didn’t realize this earlier, but a plate stand doubles wonderfully as a cook book holder. See what I mean ???

A plate holder functions as a cook book holder !!!

How did I discover the dual functionality aspect of this piece ??? Well, the other day I was fixing a new recipe for dinner from one of my favorite cookbooks and my son insisted that he wanted to sit by the island and paint. Fearing that my brat of a Picasso might turn my cook book into his art book by spilling water or paint on it, I took the platter that I had displayed off the stand and replaced it with the cookbook. And to my delight, the plate holder not only looked great as a book holder but also functioned beautifully in its new role. 

Bring a visual spark to a kitchen corner, by displaying brightly colored platters/plates/cookbooks on a plate stand. 

So those of you who have a plate holder tucked away in a drawer or storage bin, bring it out. You’ve got yourself a new cook book holder but without having to pay a hefty price tag for it :)
