Chickpea, Sausage, and Kale Pasta

This will go down on my list of “desperation dinners” joining Blue Runners with Rice and Sausage from the actual book Desperation Dinners.  I always keep chickpeas and pasta in the cabinet so all I needed to make this dish was kale and sausage…btw…I used Chorizo.

From Baby Changing Table to Bar Cart

A long while back I blogged about bar carts… one that I couldn’t afford  and one that I was sure I would never build. It’s not that I have a lot of booze but displaying it on a bookshelf just wasn’t working for me.

Somewhere along the way…either from one of my decorating magazines or via Pinterest, I came across the idea of upcycling a baby changing table into a bar cart.


And so it goes… I found a baby changing table in great shape and got to sanding and spray painting. I would advise doing a bit of light sanding and buying the spray paint that has the primer and finishing off with a clear sealant.

I love my little bar cart, I doubt I’ll ever put wheels on it and I’m okay with that.

Milk Glass Collecting

I must be getting old because lately I’ve been obsessed with collecting vintage items like Pyrex and Milk Glass.

I’m wild-eyed at this stage, grabbing every vase that I come across often for next to nothing. I know that milk glass had a lot of manufacturers and not all of them had visible markings but a couple of pieces have markings such as CLG Company and E.G. Brody. In addition to vases I’ve also found other items such as a creamer and a couple of candy dishes and a plate or two. I’m still searching for that hen candy dish that held our Christmas treats as I was growing up. I think I inherited that hen and gave it away during a move not really knowing years later that I would start to collect milk glass.
