i spent the afternoon decluttering and organizing in my kitchen. except it turned out to be one of those projects where the room actually looks worse now than it did when i started. that means progress was made, yes?
i got rid of lots of stuff that i never use to free up space for all of the things that i love to use. i cleared a special shelf to hold my vintage pyrex collection. i parted with several cookbooks though i still feel that we own a few too many so that shelf will likely go through a second clean up round.
i got this set of treasure craft woodland canisters all cleaned up with the intention of finding them a new home. but in the process of spiffing them up i fell in love with them all over again. *sigh* so now i need to fill them up with goodies and find them a proper home on the counter top, not up in the dark cupboard from which they were rescued.
and do you remember this adorable birdie crock from a couple summers ago? it was also stashed on a shelf in the very, very back. not anymore, it has been dusted off and moved up front where it will surely get some loving.
this yellow tea pot is also a favorite vintage piece of mine. it belonged to tony's great grandmother. we use it occasionally in the winter months but i am terrified that it will get bumped off the table and broken. things like that happen in a house full of small people. a lot.
the little cozy that covers it is lined with gray wool felt. i love that part!
it is funny how happy these things made me today. had i only known i would have retrived them from their dark hiding places long ago.
what treasures have you discovered or rediscovered recently?
