Looks great right? Almost all of it was found at local Antique markets. Some were bought new. This is a great example of how you can mix old and new to get the perfect mix of what you need.
The two baskets were bought together for just $11!! They both have lids, and nestle for easy storage. They are the perfect size for small cakes, cookies, biscuits, etc. The lids will be helpful in keeping out bugs, dirt, etc. during events.
The bundle of twigs (as my husband calls it) is a Swedish-made birch twig whisk. These whisks are supposed to be top quality with getting lumps out of gravy, I will have to test it and see. I bought this one from the Gift Chalet, you can get one too for just $12.00!
The small pitcher holds about a cup and a half. I picked it up cheap thinking it would be good for cream or when you need just a splash of something on the table.
The small jar is actually a mustard jar that can be bought from Jas Townsend and Son. I had never ordered anything like this over the internet, and I wanted to see the quality, so I got a small little jar to use for mustard, or honey, or molasses. I will say that I think it is quite cute! I may order more pottery items from Jas.

The best item in my new stash is my salt-glazed jug. It was a great surprise from my sweet husband. I have been wanting one for a while, but I have never brought myself to actually buy one. I have not measured how much it will hold, but I am thinking close to a gallon. This will be great to have along for those one-day events when you don't want to haul around a lot of stuff.
More recipes coming soon!! I am currently trying to decide what to make next, I have a list!!! We are still in the process of packing, so I see it being something fun & easy!!
