Out With the Old, In With the New

You may remember this beauty from this post? photo 5_zps26f27eac.jpg Well it seems this week is the week to say my goodbyes. The replacement oven, stove top and hood are being installed on Tuesday.  photo 3_zps1385cb7e.jpg 
It'll be nice to have things looking fresh and pristine and to know I can bake my food according to recipe instructions and all will be well...  photo 1_zpsc1b9d148.jpg 
The down side is I was just beginning to get used to setting the temp 25 to 50 degrees cooler than instructed.  photo 4_zpsda1305b5.jpg 
In fact I'm pretty sure I burned the first batch of these delicious peanut butter cookies figuring that out! Oops! Definitely not a first for me... though it is nice to be able to blame it on an ancient oven.

I guess I'm going to miss this dear old appliance for more than just her looks after all. Seriously, isn't the door decal the cutest?

Happy Sunday all,


  1. Oh that is surely divine!! So retro and old school, I love it.

    My oven is fairly similar. I need to keep mine cooler than the said temperature as well.

    I think functionality over retro style might be a winner in this case haha

  2. Awe, that's a shame that you have to get rid of it! It's so pretty!

    Hope your week's off to a great start, Courtney! ;)

  3. haha so will be sad to say goodbye to that! xo

  5. I'm with you- I love the cuteness of the retro stove! Some older things just have more character. =) But then again, it will be nice to have your cookies turn out as expected! Can't wait to see the new stove!

  6. Oops- that was supposed to be from my account but I guess Josh was signed in! Hehe. =) ~Mikalah


I delight in what you have to say, so comment away...
