March Foodie Photo-A-Day Challenge ~ Kitchen

Today’s subject in the March Foodie Photo-A-Day Challenge is “kitchen”. Well, as soon as I think of my kitchen, my mind immediately goes to my favorite bowl. This bowl was given to me by my mother-in-law a few years ago. The bowl originally belonged to my mother-in-law’s aunt. Now put this into perspective. My mother-in-law will turn 86 in May. This bowl belonged to her aunt. I can’t begin to guess how old this beautiful bowl can possibly be. It must have been loved in order to be passed down.

Imagine the bazillion number of goodies that were mixed up in this bowl! The cakes, the cookie batters and the mashed potatoes. There are indentations on the bottom of the bowl from the wooden spoons scraping against it. I love the small cracks, the weathered surface and each and every knick or ding. I sometimes imagine my mother-in-law using it as a young bride in her kitchen. It’s just another of my possessions that brings a smile to my heart. I absolutely love it.





Isn’t it beautiful? I am so very lucky to be the 3rd generation to own this kitchen treasure.


About finefrugality

I am a wife, mother, business owner, farmer, foster parent, retired probation officer and so much more. :-) I love to save money any way I can. I just don’t see the sense in handing my cash over to someone else when I don’t have to. I coupon, I grow and can food, I reuse and repurpose items, I scour thrift stores and during the warmer months, my Saturday mornings consist of yard sales and our local farmer’s market with my husband. I have organized local meetings which include coupon swaps, barter clubs and swap meets. Here is where I begin to share this life with the rest of the world. This is Fine Frugality. Because being frugal is not only fine. It is FINE.

    What a fantastic story! I love the odd kitchen items that don’t necessarily fit in with everything else, but are practical and have sentimental value

    When I first moved away for school, my grandmother gave me her dinnerware, the same set I had eaten from every time I visited while growing up. Despite the scratches, chips, and imperfections, the plates made my home away from home just a bit more comfortable. This same dinner set is currently in storage and will be handed down to my brother when he moves to a place of his own.

    • I love that! I wish I had something like that from my grandmother, she sure could cook up a mean batch of fried green tomatoes and there was nothing like her pumpkin pies! I try to fill my home with special items. It just makes it…well, home. 🙂
