From Mam-maw to Martha

When you get married, both halves usually bring lots of “stuff” to a household. Unfortunately, both my husband and I brought horrible kitchenware that was handed down to us from our grandmothers. And in those years since, we have not replaced one single item.

But with all of the possibilities that Martha offers in her Macy’s collection, I think it’s time to pull out the credit card and do a little upgrading.

(By the way, I can't believe I'm sharing these awful pictures from my kitchen. I am so embarrassed.)

*Mixing bowls in such bad shape, they’ve been relegated to storing grain and pasta.

*Utensils that are melted, rusty, and just plain ugly.
