Dear beautiful Le Creuset pan,
I have stalked your kind from afar, but now we can finally be together. Yes, you were a little beaten up on first look, but your chipped edges only give you character. I know we'll make great food together, and we'll never be apart.
What a beauty! From what I can tell this is from the 70's or so, and it is a lovely light teal color that I haven't seen before in Le Creuset cookware.
This is what it looked like before I took the time to soak it, clean it, and lightly sand/oil the handle.
Not bad for under $3!
In other news, I visited my good friend Ann's new house that she just moved into, and it is really cute!
I am stealing some shots from her studio to show you:
We had a long lunch today and ate outside relaxing in the sunshine and talking about houses and boys. I am so torn lately, because while I am excited to be moving, I am still really bummed out to be moving away from my good friends here. I've been doing this my whole life, and I'm really looking forward to the day that I won't have leave where I am every few years. That being said, I am still really excited about our South Dakota adventure!
