Step by step
I noticed I haven't posted for a few days. I've been slowly working on the kitchen. I bought a new silverware tray (the old was avocado green and thus is not allowed). I also culled my avocado green Pyrex bowls and baking dishes. These I may sell, on eBay or Craigslist, as there's a fairly strong demand for vintage Pyrex. I've kept the pieces in other colours--my bowls and baking dishes. I love them and I use them frequently. I've given them a whole shelf to their own in my main storage cupboard, rather than keeping them on the wheeled cart which holds the microwave.
I'm hoping to eliminate that cart. Current plan is to put the microwave on the kitchen counter where the breadbox used to be. I haven't tested it yet, so I'm not sure how happy we'll be with it. I'd love to not put that cart back! The kitchen feels so roomy now! The girls were dancing and twirling while I cooked dinner the other night...could never even consider that before.
So far, the new dishes are a success. They're so pretty and simple, clean lines. I found some smaller bowls, simple clear glass made in France, at IKEA. $.79 each, so a bargain too.
We're loving the Vestfrost! It's so nice to have a small fridge, stuff doesn't get lost. It means I can't stock up, which is GREAT. And, the small footprint means more free floor space.
