A Kitschy Kitchen Gift






My friend loves all things vintage.  She has the most beautiful home filled with fun vintage finds!  She and her husband remodeled a 1950's ranch-style home and it is a fun mix of modern and old!  This set of stacking bowls will go great in her kitchen!

For her birthday, I gave these mixing bowls filled with some retro-looking kitchen wares and dish towels.  I will be posting a few simple gifts this week to inspire you to plan your Christmas gift list now!

What ideas do you have for Christmas gifts?

Retro mixing bowls by 222: Ross
Red utensils: Tuesday Morning
Red & white check dish towels (set of 3): Tuesday Morning
White towel with watermelon and ric rac: Sur La Table (on sale now)  
Wooden rolling pin with red handles: Sur La Table (my great-grandmother had one just like this!)
Vintage looking kitchen timer: Anthropolgie (available in many colors)
Red polka dot and floral journal:  Michael's (dollar bin)
Red polka dot tissue paper: Target

That is a lovely gift! I need to go to Bangor and find me some goodies like that at their wonderful stores! We have a Winners/HomeSense up here in Canada which will sometimes carry these items but one has to shop there often to catch them. As for Christmas shopping? I have 5 months to go before I need to shop don't I?? Blessings, Pamela

Oh how I'd like to receive this as a gift! Your selections are so fun! We don't have Ross stores in this area, but I've shopped them in Cali. I think they have a much better selection of items than Marshall's or TJ's. You're such a good friend to have put this thoughtful gift together! ~ Sue

Terry said...

This is so pretty! Even though I've been married for years, I'd love to receive something like this! I found you through Very Merry Vintage Style and love this idea!

Be a sweetie,

Catie said...

Ahh, soo cute!! I love it! Those are the colors I'm doing in my kitchen. Where did you find those bowls?? Please let me know! I'm visiting from Wow Us Wednesdays. ~ Catie : )

Ohhhhhh I hope I can find these bowls at our Ross! The match exactly to some coffee mugs I bought at one of our Barnes & Nobles Starbucks Cafe's a couple years ago...who knew! Then I found a 2-tiered plate with this pattern as well at Marshalls! Ross here I come...please have them! LOL And thanks for sharing such cute ideas!
