Someone’s in the kitchen with Dinah….

someone’s in the kitchen….I know….I know!

SpoonsIMG_3341

Because I would NEVER put this much butter in the skillet to fry eggs! heehee! Really I wouldn’t! It’s been a long time since we cracked open an egg and it had a double yoke! YUMMY!

And look what I found at the thrift store….

SpoonFridgeIMG_3344

It has holes on the back to actually hang it on the wall but I think I’ll glue magnets to the back and put it on the fridge. Do you read Dear Helen Hartman? I think she would call this Kitchen Kitsch! (it’s plastic)CCIMG_3339

I bought a few old cookie cutters, too!

I’m joining Time Travel Thursday ,

and Thrifty Things Friday!

Hi Miss Lavender Dreams,

Oh boy, keep those mountain pictures coming....Mom is so excited about seeing the NC mountains. Today she is contacting a realtor, we are going up to Weaverville in September to look for a new house. I'm going to be a "mountain bear". (o:

Thank you for the bee-u-tee-ful picture. Oh, love your measuring set, really retro.

Hugs,
Prudence ♥

Is Wendy with you?

Susan said...

Seeing those eggs frying brought back memories of my dad making breakfast on Saturday morning (my mom got to sleep in to 8:00 a.m.). He would do a slab of bacon in the cast iron skillet and without draining the fat, fry eggs! No wonder I can't eat a fried egg to this day!! Love the vintage measuring spoons and cookie cutters, XOXO

Shelia said...

Oh, a double yolked egg! I think I've only cracked open one in my lifetime with two yolks! :) I love the little measuring set. It's darling!
Hope you're doing well.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Jill said...

Those measuring spoons are the cutest thing, ever!! Love them!

Vee said...

Cute little measuring spoons! I really like the old-fashioned cookie cutters and keep mine in a big old clear glass cookie jar. I don't use them as they work terribly, but I do love their shapes.

Susie said...

Those measuring spoons are too cute. Helen would love them also. The cookie cutters would look nice hanging on a Christmas tree. xoxo,Susie

TexWisGirl said...

loved those cute measuring spoons! :)

BECKY said...

Hi Diane! I LOVE the measuring spoon set! Adorable! Never seen anything like it. And those cookie cutters are the same type as my mom's Xmas shaped ones. "Someone's in the kitchen with Dinah....." I haven't heard or thought of that song in YEARS!! So glad I stopped by!!
P.S. I have the same memories as Susan in the above comment. Cast iron skillets for everything...especially bacon and eggs! :)

Those measuring spoons are super cute!! Never seen a double yoke egg before.

Simply Shelley said...

Such a cute find. I love double yokes..getting twice for the same money :) Blessings dear friend

Musings from Kim K. said...

Aren't those delightful measuring spoons. How cheerful. Keep the mountain pics coming too.

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Cute spoon set! I have a few of those old cooky cutters and still use them sometimes. Not that I make cookies all that often. Haha!
When I saw your title, my first thought was "Dinah Shore". Remember her show? I always liked her. (telling my age here!)
Have a great day.

Donna said...

Great finds! You can find the best little treasures!

Babs said...

I love finding a double yolk egg! It's been a couple of years since I've seen one...probably because I haven't bought jumbo eggs often. The little measuring spoons are darling and so cheerful and I think my mom used to have similar cookie cutters when I was a child.

Lauren @ My Wonderfully Made said...

YUM! How I LONG for a good, fried egg! I got a few goodies at garage sales last Saturday and at a vintage market. Trying to get some of them 'made over' in the evenings!

Dayle @ A Collection of This and That said...

Love the hangie thing. So cute. And those twin eggs speak right to my heart. :)

I just finished sprucing up and restocking my booth at the mall. I picked up a lot of neat finds during our recent travels. Always fun.

Ivy and Elephants said...

That little measuring set is just adorable! What a great find, it's going to add fun to the kitchen.
Hugs,

GardenOfDaisies said...

The fruity measuring spoon set is really cute. I like your idea to attach magnets to the back. Yes, I think we very well could be sisters separated at birth! ;-)

Chel C said...

Oh yes, very kitch! And the butter with the eggs?...I remember when I used to put the bread in too to make fried bread (heart attack on a plate!). This week's finds...Platform 9 3/4 at Kings Cross Station in London. Yes there is one! Take care. Chel Potter!!!

Hugs,

Ricki Jill Treleaven said...

Nope....no fun finds around here....I'll have to enjoy looking at your cute fun finds! It's funny because several months ago I had about three double yolk eggs within a short amount of time. :D It doesn't happen often around here, either.

bj said...

Cute treasures...
been a long time for me, too, to find a double yoke....since I don't like eggs, it always freaks me out when I see TWO yolks. hahhaa...

JG said...

Diane, what cute measuring spoons! I have the flower cookie cutter from my mom's collection. Nice to have an old cookie cutter. :)
~Judy

Joy H said...

Love it, you find the best treasures.
I haven't been thrift shopping or to any garage sales yet this week. Maybe over the weekend. :)

Diane said...

Cute finds! Lovely mountain photo too. I stopped at a couple garage sales today. Nothing interesting except three large flower pots, never used, all for one dollar. Couldn't pass that by!

cynthia lee designs said...

Cute measuring spoons! I've never had an egg with 2 yolks.
Pretty mountain photos...we just got home from the mountains of Tennessee.
hugs,
Cindy

Jen @ Muddy Boot Dreams said...

See bad influence!

these measuring cups are just SO COOL!

Laura Turner said...

Thanks for your sweet comment on my little envelopes with paper buttons. I love to find double yolks--I got about 8 in one carton a few years ago. Always makes me smile! Love your thrift shop finds. I found a lovely Alice in Wonderland clock with pendulum that inspired a new vignette in my craft room. I'll be showing that on my blog this week. I would love for you to link up some of your vintage finds with my Vintage View Sunday blog party. www.sundayview.blgospot.com

Best,
Laura

Karen Mary Butterfly said...

Fun! I don't think I have ever found a double yolked egg! Love the cookie cutters! This week I was happy to find a white cow shaped creamer...sort of French country and looks good with my new dishes I found a few weeks ago at a garage sale!
