Heres the happy chef that will greet you when you arrive. His little pal must be a new addition for the holidays.
Oh man, just looking at this picture makes me want to get in my car and go!
If youre into colorful dishes, you now know where to find them!
These JELL-O molds on the cheap would make ab-fab dining table centerpieces or holiday decor.
Outdoor torches perhaps? I give these two thumbs up!
My Thanksgiving challenge is to set my table with all things found at A to Z. There will be a few exceptions. I prefer a new turkey over the recycled variety.
Im not sure what this is (imagine that,) but I am sure what it will become! Take a close look at it. Can you guess what I am going to make?
Who doesnt love a banana split?
This was my pick of the day for those who are remodeling. My son the chef lives in a cool 50s rambler and I can see this as his sink and countertop unit.
Awesome! I love these restaurant kitchen doors. I like them as room dividers. What would you do with them?
And then there is the outdoor stash. When I am on speaking tour, I talk about the oceans of stainless steel that is available at a used restaurant supply store. This picture gives you a small glimpse at what I get sooo excited about!
Ah, the beloved bone pile. Steel toed boots, long pants, and work gloves are highly recommended.

OK gang, I get a little overly excited when I talk about used restaurant supply outlets. I visited A to Z the other day with the intention of spending an hour or so looking over the wares they had to offer. Later that same day the search and rescue team was called to see if I had fallen in the restaurant equipment bone pile...4 hours and I still hadn't seen it all! If you haven't visited an outlet like this in your area, I highly recommend you do. You can find dishes, glassware, industrial kitchen supplies begging to become something else, stainless steel tables that make great kitchen islands, or bathroom vanities. My son AJ is a chef, so this is where I'll be getting my supplies to make his holiday gifts this year. Wow, what a fun day!

I am in the Denver, CO area and I never know were to find places like this or where to get started. This is my therapy and all the women I met at all the Paris Street Markets this summer. I unfortunately, wasn't able to get my book signed by you, but am excited about your new website and all the wonderful ideas that ALL the ladies and men have! You are all an inspiration. Would love a bit of information if anyone has some for the Denver area! Thank you! Posted: 12:43 am on November 3rd
