When I buy measuring cups, I always go for something functional rather than something funky and I usually opt for sets that are on sale somewhere – largely because I have a hard time resisting kitchen stuff I like when it’s on sale. There are times when I wish I weren’t so practical, however. This is the exact feeling that struck me when I saw the ridiculously cute measuring cups mentioned on Bittersweet recently. The cups measure out dry ingredients in the typical amounts – 1/4 cup through 1 cup – are shaped like geese, with handles that stretch up vertically into little avian heads. Not only is the design cute, but it is actually quite functional because the geese are designed to nest into one another, just as more conventional measuring sets are. You can find the Measuring Gaggleat Anthropologie.The other item mentioned in Bittersweet’s post was a similarly designed set of measuring spoons, only these had a giraffe pattern instead of a goose theme. Their handles, too, stretch upwards and the spoons nest together. Unfortunately, they don’t seem to have this particular Giraffe Family setavailable online at Anthropologie anymore, but take a peek into a nearby store if you’re interested in trying to track down a set. I know I will be stopping by!
