I have had so much foodie fun for my birthday! First my Facebook foodie friend Angela sent me the cutest little Hello Kitty cookie cutters! And my sister Shannon sent me a Hello Kitty cake pan so now I can make a ton of treats from The Hello Kitty Baking Book.
I am a Value Village member and on your birthday you get 20% off anything in the store. When I took this photo I had no idea that such treasure was waiting for me at the bottom right hand corner of the display racks.
Cast iron pans!! Yup. I had bought my grill pan a little while ago (Bargain or Bust) but I did not have a regular cast iron frying pan but now I do!
And look! It was used for camping which you can tell by the charred wooden handle. I love it when things have such mysterious histories.
Not just that, TWO cast iron pans! This one is a chicken fryer. I have never ever seen one before in real life. Absolutely amazing.
With a beautiful wooden handle too. They were not cheap but totally worth it.
I love having unusual tin containers and I got this adorable Pretty Parfait tin that I am going to use to put all my cookie sprinkles in.
I love embossed plates and this little platter is so charming. I am just imagining it covered with homemade tea biscuits or cookies.
The last thing I need are more small bowls but these were just too cute to pass up. They are called “Gypsy” on the bottom and are so colourful and cute, I had to have them.
And yes, I did buy something very strange, even for me. I got these papermaché-style veggies hanging on ropes. Reg thought I was crazy when he saw them and said the store probably thought they would never get rid of them.
I will share a tender secret with you. I am teaching myself how to draw and paint food. 🙂 These make perfect subjects for still life.
We also went to lunch which I will write about soon and hopefully will be going to dinner over the weekend. Yup, giving myself the royal treatment and having so much fun.
