I Get Excited About the Darndest Things

Special delivery came yesterday.

No, not something from etsy.

Not ebay either.

No pretty shoes or jewelry or clothes.

What did I so gleefully tear open yesterday?

A toaster oven!


(digression alert:  Do you watch Storage Wars?  I like their discoveries, but do they have to be so mean to each other?  I mean really, is that just for the show?  Why am I asking?  YUUUP!)

But honeys, it's not just a simple little toaster oven.  No siree!

This one's convection and it can toast 6 slices of bread!!!

It will hold a 12" pizza!  (Yes, don't make me get defensive - I like an occasional frozen pizza, especially California Pizza Kitchen ones - yummmm. Should've had a digression alert here too.)
This one's my favorite - wish they still made it!

Isn't a pretty white too?

And I have to share with you one of my favorite kitchen tools - voila - the toaster tongs.  
I got my first set Cost Plus World Market when I worked there in college and this is my second set there too a few years ago.  Why do I love my toaster tongs?  Well, you can use these to grab hot things out of your toaster without having to unplug it and now I can use them to grab hot things out of my new toaster oven.

Just in case that wasn't pretty enough for you I threw in some little kitchen pretties....

I've had them for several years, but I am about 98% sure they were made by the amazing Amy from Into Vintage.  

Oh and one more thing!  I can make little batches of cookies in it.  C'mon over and I'll have some nice warm fresh from the (toaster) oven chocolate chip cookies and a nice big glass of milk for you!  Wouldn't that be nice?
P.S.  Please don't tell Worker Bee I like kitchen appliances.  I don't want to get a vacuum cleaner or an egg cooker under the Christmas tree this year.


  1. Whatever makes you happy is what matters. :) I love a good California Pizza Kitchen frozen pizza too.

  2. You're so funny. I wouldn't mind getting a Dyson under the tree though.

  3. If it floats your boat, it's all good!!! I love the tongs! Oh, and the decorated magnets!!


  4. She's a beauty. Made me smile.. :} Enjoy.
    blessings to you and happy toasting.

  5. No way! I am having a MOMENT here! Toaster tongs...I am going to World Market this week. I have never heard of that...I NEED them...thank you, mercy my fingers...thank you! Who knew?? well, you I guess!!!!

  6. Having shocked myself badly as a child, with the fork in toaster disaster, I would love to get one of those wooden tongs. :) Lovely Toaster oven!

  7. My daughter-in-law loves her toaster oven.I have never seen the tongs. I will have to pick some up for her. I love the cute magnets also. Happy cooking!

  8. I so understand your excitement. I could never afford a regular convection oven and this would be about the closest I would come. Enjoy it!

  9. I am envious of your new oven! Our "real" oven has not worked in over 3 years (no funds to replace) so we use the toaster oven for all our baking :) It is just 2 of us, so we get by I have cooked everything from turkey to cake in it! Have fun with yours.

  10. Have fun cooking!! Those are so great to have!! Adore those pretty buttons!! Have a great evening! xo Heather

  11. I can why you got so excited, nice!!! And I've been using mine more this summer since it's too hot to have the oven on!


Thank you for buzzing by and taking time to leave me a little note. I always enjoy hearing from my friends.
