blackwell's thrift store: kcmo

jackpot! rain & paul introduced me to a gem of a "thrift store". it's really more of an antique housewares store.lord knows how much i like kitchen ware. it's pretty amazing...if you need an iron, there's a whole shelving unit fill of them. need a replacement yellow pyrex mixing bowl? there's a stack of 7! (i regret not taking pictures of the massive section of pyrex mixing bowls.)
here are the rolling pin & pots 'n pans sections.

jello molds!
the visit was a successful one. i found a sweet cake plate and metal tray that will show up in a photo shoot in the near future. stay tuned...

i'm currently working on a dinner plate set for some friends and took a couple pics of the stenciling process.
gotta love the crispness of paper stencils.

paper stencils placed on the plate. covered in underglaze. paper peeled off.
