In my kitchen

Today I thought I'd share some nice additions to my kitchenware collection, some from Sydney, some from France, some from here...


I bought this beautiful vintage compote at a little brocante market in Paris on our recent trip. It cost 5 euro, they were also selling the most beautiful matching soup tureen for 10 euro but would have been way too big to carry on to the plane home, sniff..


I found this massive cast iron Doufeu back in sydney before I left but don't think I ever shared it on the blog, it cost 15 dollars in Vinnie's and is perfect for big roasts and slow cooking.





Another French find, from eBay this time. I still can't believe my luck finding these stunning vintage turquoise Le Creuset saucepans designed by Enzo Mari in the 1970s!!! They are in fantastic condition at a great price and the great thing is that postage within the European Union is pretty OK so I can now stalk fab bargains on eBay France to my heart's content :-)




A few more Pyrex cinderella bowls to add to my collection, the green shamrock bowl has been on my wishlist for ages!


I have started collecting the little round Pyrex casseroles also known as 473s. This gorgeous blue and white pattern is called "Colonial Mist".


So far I only have 4 different patterns but I'm patient :-)


These cute little JAJ Pyrex (English Pyrex) casseroles cost a total of 3 euro in Oxfam here in Dublin. The patterns aren't necessarily my favourites but they're great for storing leftovers in the fridge :-)

That's all for now, what fab things have you found lately?

Love your new Pyrex! You are lucky shipping is OK in Europe as here in Canada it would have cost an arm and a leg to ship the Le Creuset! They are gorgeous!

Thanks :-) I am thrilled with the pots! Didn't even know that style came in turquoise!!!

Those Le Creuset pots are just stunning. I would have thought the postage would be ridiculously high so glad to hear that it was reasonable. The compote is definitely my kind of thing too, 5 euro is a bargain!!!

Oh wow! So many good things here. I love the saucepans and the Pyrex mixing bowls. I have a bit of a collection of these myself but they are hard to find these days.
