Darling and Useful Retro Kitchen Timers

It's a clock day today! I only say this because I am anxiously awaiting vacation in a week! I was thinking about all the baking that I am going to have to do for some guests I'm having over. Then I realized, I need a timer. Unless you bake all the time, I just don't think about timers, because we have one on our oven! If you're baking 3-4 things at once, then things are a little different. This is why I was excited when I saw these retro kitchen timers on Amazon. There are so many shapes, sizes, and functions! They are awesome!

I think this Fox Run retro magnetic kitchen timer is the only one that comes in green. So if you're a green person, I would jump on this one immediately! I love how small and convenient this is! In fact, maybe getting multiple colors would help with the baking process. I could have certain colors associated with different breads I'm baking. Since it is magnetic, I shouldn't lose it. I could just put it on my fridge.

Instead of it being portable, I think that this Suzie Q vintage minute timer would be a great option too. Since it's flat on the bottom you could just have it sitting about the stove for your convenience. This one also comes in a variety of colors! I am also in love with the Suzie Q brand! If you love vintage kitchenware like I do, I very much recommend taking a look!

If you're looking for sturdy, then I would go with this vintage Streamline kitchen timer. The design is very bulky, perhaps too much for what I am looking for. If you're an avid chef or baker, this would definitely be handy. I just don't bake enough to justify getting something so bold!

I think this retro kitchen timer wall clock is perfect! I love having a clock with a timer all in one. It also comes in my favorite color, teal! In fact, this matches my kitchen decor so flawlessly I think I found what I was looking for!

I was so excited about the previous clock that I forgot about this retro kitchen clock with temperature and timer. If only this came in teal or some other color besides yellow, I would be all over this one.

This should make my vacation baking session incredibly easy. What do you think about these retro kitchen timers on Amazon? Would you use one? What is your favorite out of the five listed? Comment down below!

Lovely Retro Style Dresses by Anni Coco

I'm so excited to shop for new dresses for summertime! When I saw these fabulous retro style dresses from Anni Coco, I about died! These are so great for this time of year and they come in so many colors. Ladies, you need to check them out.

I have always wanted to wear one of these vintage swing tea dresses to a party. First, it reminds me of something Marilyn Monroe wore. Next, it just looks like to much fun. I used to go swing dancing quite a bit when I was younger and I would have loved to wear this! There are many color options.

I can actually remember pictures of my grandma wearing cute retro party dresses like this. The navy blue with white trim reminds me of a ladies nautical dress. This is the most modest dress vintage style that Anni Coco has. Aren't the heart buttons on the front just precious?

Are you going to any summer weddings this year? I know I have a ton I need to attend! These lace vintage party dresses are classy and fun! You never want to outdo the bride or her bridesmaids. This is also a great option for those who want a more conservative look!

This vintage tea bow-knot dress style is great for everyday events. It's not too showy, but still fun. I can already see myself walking into the office wearing this. Plus, I can imagine it being very comfortable!

I am thrilled to see this vintage style dovetail dress. Not only can I display my retro pride, but I can feel sexy too! I've heard lots of people saying that expressing yourself as a woman was difficult in the good old days. This clearly proves that theory wrong!

I love vintage dresses! Not only are they great for everyday things like work or even going out for a walk, but are fantastic for parties too! There's a style for everyone from flashy to conservative. Take a look at these retro style dresses from Anni Coco. Which style is your favorite?

Gorgeous Colorful and Bright Amberina Glass for Summertime Entertaining

My grandparents have really rubbed off on me as I've gotten older. They both adored blue and orange home decor and now I do too. I may like different shades than they do, but there are clearly similarities. As you can probably tell, lately I have been obsessed with dishware! These vintage Amberina glassware pieces are perfect for the summer season.

The thought of using this antique votive candle holder is so exciting! Can't you imagine this as a centerpiece on your dining table? The light shining through the glass would create a romantic glow at nighttime. The engraving on the glass looks like waves, which is perfect for this time of year!

This retro Amberina pitcher is deceivingly small. I was thinking I could use this for my summer tea, but it's too little. Instead of using it for tea, it can be used to hold milk or cream. That would be great for my future breakfast parties. I adore the cherry pattern.

The pitcher above and this vintage butter dish would be great to have at a summer brunch gettogether. Both have the gorgeous cherry pattern and are super colorful. This would bring more warmth to my table! The plate shape is really pretty.

I want this Amberina moon and stars ashtray. If I was a smoker, I would buy this immediately! I like this stars and moon design and wish it was on other items! Maybe this can be used for something else, like a place for jewelry or candles.

This is an epic goblet! I would love to use this Amberina glass with daisy and button pattern for all my beverages. The light shining through both the glass and liquid would make so many cool reflections. It reminds me of a beautiful fiery crystal.

This vintage Amberina goblet is bold. It looks like it is straight out of a fantasy novel. It is like a volcanic flower. Absolutely stunning. I wish that this came in a set of four, because I want more than just one! The thickness of the glass would be great for outdoor dining.

Do you need to brighten up your home? There are plenty of Amberina glassware pieces on Etsy to choose from. Which one could you use in your house? Tell me about it in the comments below!
