the Vintage Kitchen
Thought I’d share a few of the vintage goodies that are currently residing in my kitchen. My husband would like all the counters completely clear, so we tussle over this a bit. First up is a hammered aluminum tray with a colorized 1940s photo I got at a local estate sale for .75 cents. I cut off the old, warped backing and framed the photo. The rolling pin I just like for the green handles. The cute recipe box was a handmade gift from my friend, Sara. So sorry for the terrible color quality in these photos. I am having camera difficulties right now.
This kitschy picture was something I picked up for $2.99 at the Goodwill, because our last home had a turquoise kitchen. Turns out all the funky colors also go with the green 1950s formica in our current kitchen. I love the Paris street depicted so brightly.
I have quite a few enamelware pitchers, but I have narrowed it down to just these three for now.
Last, here’s a shot of some of my vintage pyrex refrigerator dishes. I try to keep my pyrex to yellow, turquoise and red, but I do have a pink one too that I just couldn’t pass up. My kids thought I was weird for having “old” kitchenware, until my daughter spotted some of my pieces in a collectibles book at Barnes and Noble. Suddenly, I was afforded a whole new level of respectability. lol!
