All mixed up

I absolutely love clattering about my kitchen, making a big mess with pots, pans and bowls everywhere. We have a dishwasher but I am "old skool" and prefer to wash by hand. In the 9 months we have lived in this house the only time the dishwasher has even been opened was the day we moved in when I checked that the last tenants hadn't left anything behind.

I've mentioned many times how much I love kitchenware and some of my favourite things to collect are mixing bowls and jugs. I have LOTS, some vintage, some brand new, all very loved :-) Here are my favourites...

I love this vintage large lotus bowl, it cost a couple of dollars as far as I remember.

Another vintage classic shaped mixing bowl, again I think I paid about $2 for this.

I got this lovely beige "Delicious" mixing bowl with spout in the Myer sale.

A classic styled blue Tala mixing bowl, from Victoria's Basement, one of my absolute favourites!

Another market find, a cute white bowl with spout.

I love this pretty pink Le Creuset mixing bowl from their "Junior" range :-)

I got this fab red snowman mixing jug from "Meadows and Byrne" in Ireland last year, can't wait to use it at Christmas :-)

This beautiful huge robin egg blue mixing jug is another Irish purchase, I got my lovely Dad to buy it for me last year then lugged it back on the plane to Australia with me :-)

I love these blue vintage "Fowler Ware" bowls, made in Australia.

Yet another buy from Ireland, I adore this Mason and Cash red strawberry bowl.

This Le Creuset teal mixing jug is from Myer.

I got this fab pink mixing jug on eBay.

I love the vintage patina on this bowl, a flea market find.

I bought this gorgeous set of Nigella Lawson blue nesting mixing bowls on Amazon, they are a gorgeous shape to hold under your arm while mixing :-)

And no bowl post would be complete without some Pyrex of course! I have never seen the pattern on this large cinderella bowl before, anyone know what it's called?

And you couldn't possibly forget my leaning tower of Pyrex could you? ;-) To see those bowls in all their glory click here.

Oh this is only the tip of the iceberg but that's all for today, I wouldn't want you getting too bowled over (sorry I couldn't resist ;-)
