The ad is for one very vintage Wildflower patterned large casserole/baking dish by Corning Ware. This pattern was introduced in 1977 and has many coordinating pieces to its collection. The dishes are all oven, stove top, and microwave safe for consumer convenience."
My niece now trusts me to choose her dishware! I love Corelle for many reasons. It is dishwasher safe, oven safe, and microwave safe durable and pretty. What's not to like? I chose the Wildflower pattern because of it's pretty orange floral center.
I found a copy of the Betty Crocker 40th anniversary cookbook at a thrift shop.
I found lots of extra little things in my own kitchen my niece could use. A vintage Oster electric knife sharpner, a kitchen timer, a home Thorpe rolling pin, a Pyrex 2 cup measuring cup, and somewhere in the garage is a Cuisinart DLC - 10E 7 cup food processor. I bought 3 disks and a stem on Ebay for it, and it is ready. The kitchen cabinets are hiding an orange Le Creuset dutch oven lid that I am certain will perfectly fit the orange Le Creuset chicken fryer I mentioned in a previous post.
I did have to admit there was no other orange option, but to buy a Rachel Ray sheet pan. I hated to do it, but what's a girl gonna do?
I found these Tupperware canisters at the thrift shop today.
I found this Vera King size pillowcase on Ebay, and decided to de-construct it and make it into a window valance.
Here is the finished product. I think it turned out real well don't you?
I found matching placemats on Ebay. They came with a set of 4 Vera napkins.
The ice cream antique bistro set was a big hit with niecy and my sister! They are happily planning to get them asap.
I found a matching twin sized sheet on Ebay, so I decided to buy it. I will be making a couple of my aprons out of the fabric, and there should be a lot left over for other projects. Maybe I can make chair seats out of it, or potholders, or something like that. This idea was vetoed. They want me to make cafe curtains and a square tablecloth to match the valance. I will because it will be soooooo cute!
I told niecy time and time again, every kitchen needs rubber spatulas, a basting brush and some extra spatulas.
And every kitchen needs a good bottle opener, can opener, vegetable peeler, ice cream scoop, tongs, and whisks.
When I get a chance, I will get this type of orange flatware organizer for Neicy.
I couldn't pass these strainers up for $5!
My niece loves to wear rings, but I don't want her wearing them when she is in the kitchen. So I will buy her this orange ring holder for her kitchen.
Niecy needs a cake pan, and I have looked for a good one for her. Something not flimsy, heavy weight is best, and this one should be perfect.
I found a very pretty vintage ice bucket that is perfect for entertaining.
Fiesta tangerine flatware.
I will take a photo of the entire kitchen when it is finally completed. According to my calculations, it will be August.
