Fun Finds and Cool Treat Recipe

Edited to fix pictures.
The boys and I ventured out a hit a few sales and a few thrift stores. I buy all my spices in bulk and was being overtaken with bags of spices.  I was excited to find these. Not sure if I will keep the rack as I store my spices in the freezer. Maybe hit it with some spray paint? Not crazy about the yellow.


  
This shiny little gem lived in an exciting restaurant in its past now it mentioned it was ready to retire to a quieter life. Imagine the conversations it witnessed. Oh it just gleams on my counter keeping coffee warm for me into the afternoon.
Pretty sure my whole micro sized kitchen is reflected.

I have such love for vintage notions. Look....these are sewn on.


So pretty..

I was ultra excited to score this. $3.00 - mine broke years ago. If it was used you cannot tell. the ladies at the thrift had no idea what it was.

In other news.....
I have been obsessed with making pops this summer. They boys and I have had a blast coming up with creations and I have been watching for fun molds but have not found any other than these...
 I really want this book  or this one  or this but they will have to wait.

In the mean time I want to share this fab recipe that we came up with today....So good, our best yet. The worst is waiting for the freezer to do its work.


Black Cherry Banana Yogurt Pops

In a blender combine:

1 Cup vanilla yogurt

1 large banana

1 cup dark cherries (we used unsweetened frozen)

2 Tablespoons honey (1 big squeeze)

2 Tablespoons coconut (1 big pinch)

1/2 cup Milk

I did put some coconut in the bottom of half the molds before pouring in the mix.
Blend on High and pour into molds and freeze

Drink left overs.... or add ice cubes before blending and it is one yummy smoothie.

Such wonderful finds!! The pop makers remind me of my childhood. My mother had those and used to make juice pops in them. She got them from a Tupperware party she attended. Thanks for the memory. Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog, too!! Have a wonderful weekend. : )

I'm going to have a go at your pops recipe this week, we have a set of moulds that have only ever been used once - unsuccessfully which is why they were never used again!
Great coffee pot too, nothing better than working on a project with a good supply of hot coffee by your side.

And good finds! That cafetiere looks brand new.
