I got my birthday gift from Dear Hubby early this year. A 5.5 Quart Dutch Oven from Le Creuset. I found this in Home Goods at a steal and just had to have it. Of course, Dear Hubby obliged. Thanks Hon!

What was the first dish I cooked using my pot? Sinigang na short ribs of course. Here's the beef simmering, waiting till the meat falls off the bones.

And no, I don't think it is sad for modern, educated women to be happy and excited about kitchen stuff. In fact, I want a whole set of Le Creuset pots and pans. I have a lifetime to work on that. Then, I will happily turn over my collection to Berry when she wants them!

Apart from pots and pans, I want a dress form badly. This dress form from Fox Sewing Machines Inc. to be exact:

I saw this first from Jenny of Wiksten, when she sold some of her stuff on ebay. And with a little bit of sleuthing, I found out just where to get one!

When I find time, I'm going to Fox and find out how I can bring one home. Is it made to order or do I get to bring it with me right away? I hope they don't cost much. It would be nice to have one around the house.

1. I can use it when I sell stuff on ebay or shopspot
2. I can play dress up with it. That leaves me free from having to take my clothes off and on
3. Oh, and i can use it for sewing, duh! (In case you are curious, yes, I can sew!)

Oh, I'm turning into such an old-fashioned housewife! =)

Hi Melissa! I ended up buying a model form from Andy's NYC in the Garment District. Almost looks like Fox's and Wolf's but much much cheaper! I got mine for about $300. But I had to personally pick it up from the store. Hope this helps! =)
