Some of my stuff

Our place is really starting to come together, and well, fall apart at every turn.  I’m not even sure how Marigold manages to undo every effort to keep the house tidy in a matter of seconds.  It’s possible that this is the way it is for anyone who has birthed and thus housed a toddler.  But whatever, even this pukey peach colour in our bedroom is starting to grow on me.

It’s been a while since I had a nice bedroom.  It’s also been a while since I had a winter coat.  You’ll have to wait for pictures of that.  It needs to be broken in a bit.  But it is spectacular! AND it will be ridiculously warm for this winter.

Yesterday, I bought some stuff. And got some stuff as a present for my birthday. On the left is a casserole/butter dish, pyrex in the butterprint pattern which I collect. In the middle is another pyrex dish, that is pink, of which I have no matching pieces or anything in my kitchen that even goes with it.

And then today!  I found these Chatelaine Magazines from 1964, 1966 and 1967.  It’s weird because the articles are still somewhat relevant, and the prepared foods–(ie cut up hot dogs on an hamburger bun topped with a kraft cheese slice)\, not pictured) seem so much worse than what I would ever eat myself.  I had a chance to flip through them tonight and just look through.  I’ll go back and read the articles when I have more time.

  1. Those magazines are amazing! I always wish my gran had kept her old magazines, but she recycled them ages ago. My favourite part is looking at the old advertisements.Also, I just wanted to say that I really like how you write. Your writer's voice feels kind of comforting.

  2. By the way…That Pyrex Butterprint dish is actually called a refrigerator dish.And thanks Tess! The ads ARE the best!
