Happy Birthday to me, Happy Birthday to me!
Another year older and I hope... wiser. :)
Hubby and I are going out to lunch to celebrate. We have a coupon to a favorite cafeteria. Nothing fancy but anytime someone else is cooking and doing dishes is a celebration. My gift from him was $10.00 to spend at Goodwill. A great gift!
I thought I'd show you that the mini island I moved from the wall into the center of the kitchen is working great. Even hubby is used to it being there (and he takes awhile to get used to changes).
It continues to hold my huge mixing bowl and the vintage bowls nesting inside it. I don't need that really big bowl often but when I do... it is the perfect size.
All three of the nesting bowls have the same design but were purchased from garage sales separately. I love having them so handy and with a small kitchen, I use storage wherever I can create it.
While I had the camera out, I took a picture of my Dayspring tea tray. I did have a beautiful patchwork of vintage hankies on it (inspired by Friend Debra, who won the Dayspring give away a few months ago). I came across this lovely scrapbooking paper in my stash and thought it would look pretty for late summer through autumn.
I love this Dayspring tea tray... the back of it is similar to a picture frame which allows you to place whatever you want under the glass.
By the way, the teapot and teacup shown are among my favorites... the teapot was a birthday present from Stephanie when she worked in a coffee and tea shop in college, the "July" teacup was a gift from her to remember our time spent at Old Sturbridge Village together a few years ago.
I'll be back later today with another pantry post... Lord willing and the creek don't rise.
