My favorite pantry shelf displays a few mugs from my Mona Lisa collections.* Below the mugs are a few more useful things: spices in every shape and size container. I refill and date them from time to time, but some of the little boxes are 20 or more years old.
All in all, my pantry has more gadgets than food. I'm not much of a squirrel.
*Also on my Mona Lisa hobby see Mona Lisa is really Mrs. Gioconda and What did Mona Lisa Eat?
