My garden is not the only thing falling together this year. A new surge of garage sale-ing (sailing?) has brought my kitchen together quite nicely.
The first find was this set of beautiful milk-glass mugs that I found at Goodwill for $.89 each.
Then came more of my Pyrex collection… which is now rounded out nicely with a few gems like this Daisy 2 1/2 quart casserole and those two adorable butter dishes (first pic).
Just yesterday my vintage dreams came true when I found this incredible old, funky, blue scale at a yard sale where nearly everything else was junk (and I almost passed by). Best of all, it still works perfectly! ($5! Whoohoo!)
The icing on the cake was this set of beautiful blue jars!
I have collected blue glass forever. I have always thought about of a find like this (‘dreamed of’ is a little dramatic, but it may just fit). I haven’t been lucky with the thrift stores like some other areas with the older canning stuff, but I do have my few and I love them.
Well yesterday I found these beauties and as soon as I got them home and clean I knew just where to put them:
My pantry is so happy now! Eventually I want my kitchen to be my happy place. Right now it is a dark hole with a floor that looks a lot like it was made from Jenga blocks with water stains and a sink that really likes to break… a lot. But all of that will come together in time. On our first sunny morning in weeks, this kitchen feels wonderful and bringing beautiful things into it feels really good.
