What is old?

I have been looking around the house and noticed a couple of things....besides the fact that it needs some serious TLC. No, I got to thinking about what we still have and actually use from our wedding.  Here's the first thing I noticed, our my cooking utensils.  Yes, these are the originals and I've never replaced them.  Can you believe it?  I guess you can probably assume then that I don't cook enough....you might be right!!  Hate to admit it, but I don't love to cook.  I would have to say they are in pretty good shape, a little discolored.  I even remember who got these babies for us and where she got them....look Angie we still have them :)

I once heard that women are either cookers or cleaners.  Yeah, I'm a cleaner, my poor hubby.  

Here's a close up of the back, it almost looks like a smiley face...proof positive I cook...

WARNING:  My computer was acting up, so sideways is what I GOT.  Anyway, Towels with strings and strands all along the edges, but, but, but they are still absorbent and big in size to boot. Plus they are neutral  colored so they match with everything.  That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it! 

Stings never hurt anyone besides getting tangled in the washing machine.  Do you have any like these in your home?  Do you still use them??? 

Me and my hubby! (picture is a couple years old)  It's not our wedding anniversary yet, but we'll celebrate 14 years in October. I am so thankful our marriage is built to last a lifetime and doesn't wear out.  


  1. What a happy looking couple, and a lovely sentiment. Yes, I have towels like that. I use them till they wear out, then I use them as rags when working on my projects.

  2. I can totally relate. We have bath towels that were shower/wedding gifts that are starting to wear and fray....love your post. Warms my heart.

  3. Those towels look familiar, and I'm a cleaner too:) After almost 22 years of a happy marriage even we are starting to resemble our towels i.e. looking a bit frayed around the edges LOL. I have added my name as a follower to your blog. God bless x

  4. Hi Andrea! Thanks for sharing with my newbie party. Have a wonderful day.

  5. That is really sweet, I wanted to say congrats on the upcoming 14 years.

  6. Hi chick! You two kids look way too young to be getting ready to celebrate 14 years of marriage! My hubby and I celebrated our 21st anniversary last week. I said to him that we need to have some more wedding showers because all of our wedding gift things are wearing out!! I was joking of course, but it seems like a lot of our basics need replacing.

    I hope the rest of your summer has gone well!! ~ Yvonne
