adventures in baking :: salted oatmeal cookies

I was invited to a cookie exchange party over the holidays & decided to make a recipe that I haven’t tried before but one that looked absolutely delicious!! I followed this recipe by Clockwork Lemon to a tee & they turned out better than expected!! They were seriously so yummy!!! You should definitely make some, too…

I recommend using the fancy white chocolate bars because they do, indeed, taste so much better than the chips.

I packaged mine in simple brown bags for the party but used these free printable feather tags mentioned in my christmas gift wrapping post to pretty them up. I also used these printable recipe cards to add to the fronts of the little bags to share the recipe.

This recipe is definitely going on my go-to cookie list! The salt flakes on top mixed with the sweetness really make them drool-worthy. I wish I had some right now!
hugs & cheek pecks, Meghan

slightly obsessed…vintage fans

I have a small (but growing) collection of vintage electric fans. I actually use mine to fill the space above my cabinets in my kitchen. I would love to have a whole cluttered collection of them up there so I am always on the look out for them. Here are some photos of my tiny collection so far…the “little giant” is my favorite!




Flea markets & thrift stores are always a good place to look for them, although now-a-days they usually get picked up pretty quickly. Etsy has a nice selection of them, here are some from Etsy’s vintage section to get you obsessed as well…(I would gladly add any/all of these to my collection!)
