The Prettiest Fridge In the World.



Fridge3

Today while you are waiting for that casserole to bubble, you could  if you were so inclined take the time to  make somewhere  mundane, kind of pretty.
How's about the fridge?
* Take out everything in the fridge and put it on the counter. Throw out  anything past its sell by date or more than a month old (including mustards,  marmalades etc...)
* Wipe down the insides of the fridge with a mix of vinegar and tea-tree oil.
 * Measure the bases of your salad drawers and using a pair of pinking shears, cut out flowery/spotty oilcloth liners, so you can clean the base  of your drawers quickly and easily, and they will always look pretty...
 * Choose a tiny, pretty little dish, fill it with baking powder and put  it at the back of your fridge to absorb bad smells.
* Choose a scrumptious tray (I'm saving a gorgeous vintage glass one with a lace insert),  or  depending on the size of your fridge, a couple of trays and use it in the fridge to easily pull jam, marmalades, chutneys and other condiments, in and out...
 * Transfer blocks of butter on to butter dishes. (pretty, not remotely  precious pressed glass for me!).
 * Pour cordials into glass bottles, display eggs (if you prefer  to keep them in the  fridge), grapes, strawberries and tomatoes etc in bowls, and put cheeses and cold meat  etc into their own lidded clear containers: all the better to check stocks of...
 * Remove as much store bought packaging as possible: choose waxed paper  over clingfilm wherever possible and tie up with kitchen string.
 * Store brocolli in a wide glass filled with water, like a pretty green  bouquet- as it will last longer this way..
* Store carrots standing up in a similar glass.
* Store like with like according to food safety rules.
* Remove all fish and meat from store wrappings, wipe and   wrap in greaseproof paper and store in ziplock bags or sealed containers.
* Choose a container or tin you adore, fill it with chocolately treats and hide it at the back, for cold comfort...
* Add a glass bowl for your cosmetics
 * Then pop the odd crocheted doillie atop a jar or two, pop a single flower bud in a tiny jam jar, and  close the door...
 * Glue magnets onto the back of vintage paste brooches  and  use to hold your "HouseKeepers Creed" in place...
 * Then get thee to a food emporium and buy a few extra special treats in pretty packaging: divine fresh coffee  in brown paper bags, olives, sun dried tomatoes  in oil, retro style tinned fish, or tiny little petit fours...
 Then cook something delicious for dinner, go to bed, then sneak downstairs in the middle of the night to eat  the leftovers straight out of the fridge, Nigella Lawson style...
