Have I ever shared with you my kitchen nook? If you look closely there’s magnets on the top and the bottom of the nook where slotted spacers fit in to hold dinner plates upright for display, but I’ve found that plates are bigger than ever now so most of the time they don’t fit. My everyday Corelle do but they’re not very pretty or interesting for display so instead I use the area to decorate and hide my junk.
Yep in that green vintage Pyrex bowl is where I hide stuff that I use everyday and don’t want sitting out for the world to see. My vitamins are in there, gift cards, and things that need to be done like rebate slips filled out and mailed in. It’s my catch all spot!
Do you have an area where you hide you junk? Believe me it’s not the only place we have. There’s also a junk drawer, but as long as it’s out of sight and organized I don’t mind having it. I know we all have stuff that can’t always be out of sight but I do like the idea of at least trying to disguise it decoratively.
My Mom left her vintage Pyrex in our guesthouse when she moved south full time and I was pleasantly surprised to see it. I snatched it up and use it all the time. There are many fond memories of food being served out of those bowls when I was a kid. I always remember the large brown Pyrex bowl being heaped with homemade mashed potatoes and right in the middle was a big ole’ serving spoon. My Moms going to kill me for saying this but I also remember after dinner was over, and the dishes were in the dishwasher she would lick that big mashed potato spoon, just like it was cake batter and like my mother I do the same.
