What’s Cookin’?


Does morning get any more gorgeous than this?!


I certainly don’t think so!  I’m always so grateful for this early morning view from my backyard each and every day…no matter what the weather may be…

Just a few things to share with you today…


A fun kitschy kitchen card with some fabulous new elements from Crafty Secrets


A collage-style image from one of my favorite Creative Scraps sets—“Domestic Goddess”


A computer-typed greeting in a good, old-fashioned typewriter font…


A wonderful recipe card image—complete with pretty borders & kitchen gadgets—from the very soon-to-be-available “Vintage Paper Pattern” CD from Crafty Secrets—you’re just going to love it!


Here’s a close-up look at two of the vintage paper designs from the CD—love the shabby blue print and red polka-dots—so sweet!

I used one of the shapes from the “Accent Essentials” cartridge and my Cricut for the nice, big label-shaped background…

Making this card reminded me of some of my wonderfully kitschy kitchen finds I’ve had lately while at yard sales…

A sweet little bit of vintage kitchen linen, topped with…


…old cookie cutters…slightly bent and dinged-up, but just beautiful to me—I LOVE them!


…I’ve been particularly on the look-out for these lovely scalloped ones lately…just perfect for my favorite Scottish Shortbread cookies…


All these wonderful old gadgets!  I just love them all!


I love these old sifters…need to work on getting that  label off!


And this perfectly shabby old masher—love the chipped paint on the wooden handle!


Aren’t these wonderful?! 


This old bundt pan is one of my favorite finds…”KAISER”, “Made in W. Germany”…

My girls and I are having so much fun “junkin’”, as we call it!  Just started taking them with me a few weeks ago, and they’re hooked!

Well, that’s all from my kitschy kitchen today…

See you soon with something new.

***To all of you whom I seemingly haven’t visited lately—it’s because I can’t leave comments!  I can leave comments on some of your blogs, but not others…so frustrating!  I AM reading your posts, but just can’t let you know…I’ll keep trying!***
