More Kitchen Treasures

It has been a very busy past few weeks around this household…

…..but then again, it is always busy around here.

I am doing a bit of “re-decorating” in the kitchen…

…..pulling out some “treasures” hidden in cabinets.

Today, I brought these pretties out…

Kitchen Decor

These Yellow Ware bowls belonged to my late mother-in-law.

I displayed the set on a 3-tiered iron display stand that I purchased years ago….

…..from those Southern Living home parties.

What better to place a vintage egg beater in the bowl…

A vintage rolling pin, cookie cutters, and measuring cup anxiously await…

…..for a little cutie to use them to make cookies.

I remember how much fun it was baking cookies with my mom.

I only hope that my granddaughter will have fond memories of baking cookies with her Grandma…

… I will hold on to those memories forever.

Memories of more flour being on us than in the cookie dough..

Or wondering which cookie cutter design will be the prettiest.

I was reminded very recently that life is so delicate…to grab every opportunity,

… make wonderful memories.

No matter how simple the task or activity may be…

For smelling the ingredients of cookie dough made by cute little hands…

… definitely just as good, as smelling the fragrance of roses.

Take time to smell the cookie dough…

  1. I loved making cookies with my grandson, too. Now he wants to make them himself, but he still serves them with a smile.

  2. OMG, those cookie cutters are just like the ones my grandmother used, too. I would love to find some of those. I look forward to making cookies and memories with my grands, too.

  3. I love the message — take time to smell the cookie dough. And maybe sample a bit of it two when grandma’s back is turned …

  7. Oh the treasures are wonderful Shirley. I love the yellow ware bowls and the stand is perfect for them.

    We brought back a few things from the lake, when we finished moving over the weekend. I feel like it is Christmas. I have plans for a few of the things and the girls have plans for others.:-)

  8. How sweet! Your kitchen is so pretty and you are making wonderful memories. I just loved baking with my boys. I can just picture my oldest sitting on the kitchen counter helping me ice cookies.

    By the way, a lady came yesterday to pick up my fabric to make curtains…the same fabric you shared with me. I ordered 7 yards. 🙂

  13. It is always the simple things that create the best memories.

  14. Shirley I adore those bowls. I have so many memories of making cookies and baking with my mother. I cherish every single one of them. I remember she would let me do all the dry ingredients when I was small. Then I graduated to the mixer too. It is so special that you want to make these memories with your granddaughter. She will be right there to help I am sure.

  16. The bowls are lovely, and I like the way you displayed them.

    The flour dost fly when I make cookies with my 5 gkids! Chaos!

  17. Until we bought our house in Maine, we had a place in Galveston that lent itself to vintage decor. I loved yelloware and it was perfect there. Now, my collection of bowls sits in a cabinet because they just don’t fit Houston or Maine. Very now and then I take them out just to look!

  30. Dear Shirley,
    Lovely pieces to display!
    I also remember days of baking with Mother! When we made sugar cookies, the leftover dough of the circle cutouts were ours to sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar to bake!
