Kitchen Stuff
I seriously believe that I am an old soul. I love looking at and getting old kitchen equipment. The illustrator and I love to go to antique shops and walk around for hours. I am not really a collector, but if they are giving to me, I will gladly take them and cherish them! Besides, when you get them from someone you know, there is a little more meaning to them. When I go to my mother-in-law's house, I always use her old bowls. They are the first thing I go to for my salads and oatmeal! She recently got a set of bowls and a couple of sets of measuring cups from her sister. She knew how much I loved her stuff, so she gave these to me! I love them! The blue bowls are from her and I also got a big yellow bowl from my grandmother over Thanksgiving. I use them all often and I think of who I got them from every time I do. It is funny how you feel when you use passed down recipes and kitchen utensils...it just makes cooking for your family that much more meaningful!

Oh, by the way, if you are interested, One Frugal Foodie is doing a give away for dairy free goodies! Go check it out!

    I could spend hours in a store that sells kitchen supplies. I love it all, machines, bowls, measuring cups... my boyfriend hates when I step foot in a Bed Bath and Beyond or a Crate and Barrel because he knows we'll be there forever, lol

    I have the same yellow bowl, acutally I have the whole set. I got them from my great aunt, same with all my dishes, silverware, and glasses. I love them and think of her often because of it. I love getting old things for the kitchen too! Most of my things are from my grandparents house or my great aunts. Im glad you were gifted these things since you love them so much!
