~ Pyrex! ~

I am attending a work cookout tomorrow and I signed up to bake cookies! :) And I will show off my vintage Pyrex any opportunity that I can....ha ha.

I made Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookies!

...and then I pulled out my pink daisy casserole to carry them in. I tied on the ribbon to hold the lid in place in the car. I love pink and turquoise together. :)

What is your favorite use for your vintage Pyrex?

Cute Kitchen Cart!

Hi! Yesterday, my mom and I went to our absolute favorite antique place. It is in Concord, NC and it called "The Depot." It is actually inside the old Gibson Mill and has 85,000 square feet and 460 booths. It is supposed to be the "largest antique and designer mall in the South." It is amazing.

Always plan on buying at least one thing!!! :)

I found a super cool kitchen cart, which, after a little research I realized that it is not old at all. But it is sooo cute and super useful. Here is the stock photo.

But this is what I did with it.

Now, I know this probably looks funny in my room. Haha! :) But next year it will look awesome in my kitchen!!!

Vintage Pyrex, vintage Gemco creamer & sugar dish, vintage glass shakers, vintage Tupperware salad tongs, & vintage potholders. :)

More vintage Pyrex and vintage syrup holders.

I loooove cookbooks! :)

Anthropologie apron and dog dishtowel. The cherry dishtowel is vintage.

I bought the kitchen cart for $39! It's a little rusty and worn, but that just gives it character. I saw a new one on Ebay for $120! I love a good deal.

Thanks for looking! :)
