New to me.

Our days thrifting have produced some real treats lately. I'm loving this orange gym bag, which will come in hand as a doula bag and holding snacks, heat packs and essential oils. I also love those little Norwegian....gravy boats? We're not actually sure what they are, aside from being pretty with a fantastic motif winding around them.
Speaking of fantastic motifs, we also picked up these lovely red pots. Nice and sturdy so practical for the kitchen, but really I just love the red and white.


This mixer was probably the most exciting find. We have a great moss green Sunbeam Mixmaster, that I really try to pretend works...but it really doesn't. Our new Hamilton Beach works like a dream (now that Richard has cleaned the insides out and it doesn't smoke anymore...) and the Pyrex mixing bowls are so nice and heavy.

Finally, I can't wait to sip lemonade from these glasses while lazing about on the balcony this summer. Ice cubes clinking, and all that.

Great finds! That mixer makes me want to cry I love it so.

I made some cupcakes last night, and surely they would have been much tastier made in a lovely old mixer!

Keep posting and making me jealous please.
