Next on my list was the Classic Batter Bowl from Pampered Chef. Doesn't need much explaination, because pretty much anything from PC is awesome.
I have been eyeing antique wire baskets for a while now, but just haven't found any while thrifting lately. Ideally I'd like a large antique one to put atop the bookshelf in the living room. But for now, these new ones from Wal-Mart would mimic the look of them. Perfect for storing whatever, wherever.
And more or less, that's about all I could think of. A shopping spree in my grandmas basement would be the best Christmas present, and one I may need to give myself. I saw a sign the other day in an antique store that read:
The theory of antiques: Your grandmother used it, your mother gave it away, now you're buying it back.
So very true!
