In My Kitchen July 13

In my kitchen this month I have some very lovely “pretties”

Recently I was walking past “Typo” and found some cute little treasure that made me want to squeal. Quite a few of these items have found there way back into my kitchen. Some I just photographed.

This notebook made me smile, I love Paris and it seemed a fitting notebook for my Gourmet Getaways stories. I always take a notebook with me to restaurants and festivals so I can take notes on the go.

I also had to buy the matching zipper bag. I am not sure what I will use it for, perhaps make up on overnight trips… I only wear a little makeup so I only need a little bag.

I found so many cute cupcake sets that I couldn’t make up my mind which ones to buy!

What a dilemma!

Eat Me Cupcake Wrappers

The black ones look really smart and I love the bold “Eat Me”

…however the green “Keep Calm… Eat Cake” also appealed to me. Oh, and what do you think of the cute matching cupcake pedestals?

My recipe box is a tacky smoked plastic and I would have loved to “upgrade” to this white washed wooden box but by this time I already had quite a collection on the counter.

I simply couldn’t leave behind these cookie stamps. I hope to use them during the school holidays to make stamped sugar cookies with my daughter.

Whilst this isn’t a kitchen item I think it is too cute not to share. This little wire heart will hold beads and bangles in my wardrobe.

I have also made a recent trip to Earthbound and come home with two different varieties of glasses. Hopefully each glass will hold a dessert in a future Gourmet Getaway story.

I bought some retro paper straws… just because.

Now I need to go and find a new home for all these items in my overcrowded kitchen.

So fellow bloggers, how full are your kitchen cupboards… do you have two of ever style of cup, glass, bowl and plate and a whole set of nothing!

About Julie


  1. I love all your new found items. My cupboards are full and I mean full! When I find things I like now they usually end up sitting in my porch area for awhile until I can decide what to do with them.

  2. These are great, and the first one is my fave. I wish I was in Paris right now. πŸ™‚

  3. Oh oh oh I need to go to Typo! I didn’t know they had so many baking goodies πŸ™‚

  4. Love them all! The stamp is fun-but I wonder if my family can sue me for false advertising? I need one! My kitchen is waaay beyond full and overflowing, but I don’t let that stop me πŸ™‚

  5. Hi- great post!
    I love the cupcake wrappers- especially the “Eat Me!” ones.
    Thanks for sharing- my pantry and cupboards are filled to overflowing- my husband keeps asking what items he can throw out. πŸ™

  6. I love the concept of the stamps – very cool! These are the sorts of things I have to exercise great restraint around because our kitchen really doesn’t have spare space, but I inevitably want these sorts of things when I see them!

  7. Gosh those wrappers are cute! Looks like a trip to Typo is in order…

  8. This is just not fair – I don’t have a Typo where I live! What fabulous goodies they have.

  9. Lovely images.

  10. Julie, what a great post, thanks for sharing your treasures! I love those cupcake wrappers, and the cookie stamps are definitely something I’ll be looking out for! πŸ™‚ xxx

  11. Love the cupcake wrappers! Welcome to IMK too, good to visit your blog! Great photos, need to take some lessons from you. πŸ™‚

  12. A lotta cool stuff in your kitchen! I’m always getting new things, then trying to figure out where to put it! Great glasses – you can never have too many!

  13. G’day! All lovely items for all of us to view!
    I love novelty items that magically find their way from the store and glad I am not the only one this happens to!
    Cheers! Joanne

  14. There is serendipity in blog land as another friend of mine found old fashioned straws – she lives in Scotland πŸ™‚ I nearly bought a cookie stamp in Italy but I don’t really make cookies. Thanks for sharing πŸ™‚

  15. Typo is such fun! And always so reasonably priced too! I have one of those cookie stamps (from elsewhere that says Home Made) but you’ve reminded that I can’t remember where it is! πŸ˜›

  16. I have so many kitchen gadgets, I have had to use the entire space in our spare guest bedroom to store them in- stacked to the rafters with pots, pans and blow torches for the crΓ¨me brulee. I sure could use that sign that says “Keep Calm and Be Guilt Free”- I have already eaten so many of my recent Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups!

  17. Typo is seriously my school must πŸ˜€
    Your paris notebook is adorable!

  18. Never heard of cupcake wrappers and now I am enchanted. Your other finds such as the notebook are pretty nifty, too. (The notepad on the iPhone is nifty but for proper note-taking at conferences and such, nothing like the feel of pen and paper.)

  19. I’ve been stopping myself from buying all of Typo’s homewaresss I want them all!!!!

  20. Cool kitchen stuff! Love the recipe box and those cupcake wrappers.

  21. So many cute things you’ve shared in this post! Luv those cutie cupcake papers and I’m so in to cookie stamps right now…those are irresistible! πŸ™‚

  22. Love the “Eat Me” cupcake wrappers! Don’t need to ask me twice! πŸ™‚

  23. I’m always hunting for cupcake wrappers that don’t let the cake stick to them – wonder if these would be good? I love the glasses, and love paper straws, a real treat. Lovely pretties to look at.

  24. Your finds are all wonderful, especially the first one! ItΒ΄s a good thing I donΒ΄t live near that store!
