Show and tell Monday gets Kitchy!

I hope you all are enjoying this long weekend, I had a pretty good one. Saturday on the way to the park there was a few yardsales where I snagged up a white chenille for $0.50!!!!! That made my day then when I got home I was so excited because there was a package for me ( I knew It was coming but still) It was a lot of vintage cupcake/cake decorating items I had won from ebay you know how sometimes you win, sometimes you lose on ebay this time I WON!!!!!!

When I bid I was a skeptic because the listing had one lousy photo and not very good description but it was like $8.00 for a large lot that was to include cupcake/cake items for baby, Birthday and a few ballerinas. When I opened the box there was a big ole' bag of vintage ballerinas! I also found tucked in some tissue an old wedding cake topper with millinery flowers atop! I told my husband this was the mother load. There were other goodies too so I will have plenty of supplies and inspiration for some new projects!

My mama's Birthday is next week so I also started working on her a crown that says Birthday Queen and of course I used one of my ballerinas! I hope she loves it, I will have to ship this present I do wish we could be together for her special day I may try to surprise her haven't figured out the details yet. She always made me the nicest Birthday cakes growing up no matter what we had cake! My favorite was a cake she made with raspberries and she made the icing with raspberries and cream cheese YUMMO!

With all this kitchy goodness I had to share a few pics of my own kitchy kitchen, I hope you enjoy I warn you there is alot of pink and alot of whimsy! This isn't your average stuffy kitchen no not here, you will find traces of powdered sugar, a few too many cake plates, sippy cups and my pink mixer. My vintage stove and pink mixer tie for my favorites, my stove isn't energy efficient I am sure but that thing means business. I saw a new tv commercial about a new stove top that boils water in 90 seconds I guarantee mine beats that! You don't have to go above a 3 to boil or fry on my stove. This can be good or bad depending on who is cooking here, guest usually won't brave it! I am used to it now but newbies always want to crank it up to 10 and I think that might melt my house! Well enough for now, enjoy your weekend I hope you are enjoying some yummy treats!

OMG! Sita your kitchen is to die for! I do love your stove, it fits perfectly with your pink mixer.

You are so right, you did hit the mother load with your winning bid! Don't you just love it when you get a surprise like that?!!

Happy Birthday to your Mama, mine did the same thing when we were living at home. She was a self made cake decorator, we would have 1/2 doll cakes with the most beautiful dresses~ I never had a barbie doll growing up, so this was the next best until everyone ate my dolls dress!

How in the world did I miss you on my "Favorite Blogs"? I would love to add you, if you agree~
Love your posts,
