Adding Spice to Life!!

Okay, so I just have to show you another garage sale find from Friday. Yeah I know, isn't she done yet? Friday was a really good gs day!!

I have been looking for a spice rack for some time. I have looked at several different styles at several stores: B, B & B, Target, Wal-Mart and on and on, but I really did not want to pay $49.99 or anything close to that, but couldn't find anything I liked for less than that. And then Garage Sale Friday ~~ WOOHOO!!

Lo and Behold sitting on a table there it was: my spice rack!! (like the emphasis "my"), I am convinced it was waiting for me. Now most of the bottles were full of spices and they had that "wow I've been in here forever" spice smell to them, but I saw potential. So I snatched it up for $1.00 (or less, I really can't remember if it was a quarter or dollar so I went with the higher, but still GREAT, FANTASTIC TERRIFIC {okay you get the idea} price). And then I brought them home and emptied, washed and let them dry for a day or so.

So your probably wondering why I thought it so important to get a spice rack. Well, I am extremely allergic to MSG (monosodium glutymate) and that preservative is in a lot (like most) mixed spices you buy at the store like taco seasoning, chili seasoning etc., so I have started making my own, but I didn't have a pretty place to store them, so in comes my desire for a spice rack.

How cute is this?
And do you see the pepper? There's one on each corner ~~ adorable!!
The spices in them are mine (not the natty ones that were in there :)

Okay now one more pic, but this one has absolutely nothing to do with the spice rack (thank goodness huh? :)

There is a blog that I just love by the Nester, (I'm still learning to link or I'd take you there), and that is where I got the idea for the window "mistreaments" in our kitchen. Well, she has an idea on her site for a garland and this is some of the material that I'll be using, so just thought I'd give you a sneak peek, and of course will post pics when it's complete.

So I hope you all had a wonderful day, and just in case your hanging about in cyber-world Caroline, I hope your evening goes better than your day has gone. I'll be praying for your girl.

Love and Hugs,
