I have had a few requests to show a close-up picture ofthe opposite side of my pantry. I did include a more distant view in the post below.
The Hoosier belonged to Dearest's Great Aunt who lived in our home until her passing at age 96. She always kept the Hoosier tucked into this snug little pantry. It is amazingly useful and holds all of my baking needs, from flour to spices.
The "stained-glass" window is actually just cling film, made especially for windows, from the hardware store. Please forgive the plastic window dovering that you can see, but old houses are drafty and this helps us keep the cold at bay. I can't wait to remove it this spring.
I also had a few questions about my pantry:
Where have I acquired all of my jars? I have bought them at the hardware store, Target and was lucky enough to have a kind older lady give me all of her canning jars a few years ago - she was just going to throw them away....oh dear!
How do you label your jars? I have some very cute and very victorian post-it labels that I found at Michael's in the $1.00 bin. They are so handy and I can take them off when I wash the jars or if I change the contents.
Where do you store all of your canned goods? I keep all packaged foods that cannot be stored in jars in either the lower part of the Hoosier or in my stock pantry in the fruit cellar.
I enjoy sharing with you my Dear Friends, so please leave me questions anytime and I will try and answer them. I am no expert, but I will do my best!
I so hope that you have a pleasant and gentle day,
