Day 150: Fun with baking
When I was in my twenties, I would walk around the housewares section at Anthropologie and swear that once I could, I would outfit my kitchen with all their trendy ceramic crockery. But after after getting my first real job and spending a mere $48 on an apron, I reconsidered. Nice novelties they were, but not practical or realistic, especially at such hefty pricetags.
However, I did come across this Anthro-esque measuring cup set on sale at Pier 1 Imports. I bought it a few years ago, and it was promptly stored away in on the top shelf of my kitchen cabinet. It stayed that way until earlier this year when we moved into an apartment with ample counter space. It was so pretty, that I used it mainly for decoration. Not that baking isn't fun in itself, but I do find myself using it from time-to-time for added fun. Just like drinking tea from a fancy teacup on a random Tuesday, using this measuring set is a way for me to break up the routine. It hasn't broken or chipped yet, but when it does, I won't be crying about spending more than $10 on it!
