I don't believe I ever posted about my kitchen. I really should do this for show and tell, so I will just show a couple pictures here and maybe finish on Friday. Our kitchen is not extremely large. Perfect for hubby and me, considering, like I know I have mentioned before, making reservations is my prefered way of cooking!!
My cupboards do not have a soffit, which I am glad because I am so partial to 30s and 40s kitchen items. Several items in the above picture are favorite items...more of them!!
The green pitcher with the greenery was my grandma's. My mom said they used it occasionally for milk. The bowl also was grandma's, then my mom's. It is from the Jewel Tea company and they used it for mixing coffee cake. The spice chest above the bowl, my husband bought at an auction. Oh, I just have to tell the story.....
We were at a farm auction. I stayed with the household items and he went to the farm implements. A little while later he comes carrying this box to me. Apparently he tried to get a milk paint one, but it went so high he dropped out, but then this one came up. I am sure they were in the barn to hold nails or something. It was missing a drawer. Well, several men tried to buy it from him but my husband said no. He told me later he kinda figured I might like it. Of course, you know it is precious to me.
One more little story, I promise. (Just imagine what it would be like if you were here in person!) The glasses I purchased at another garage sale Many years ago. One time DH was at another sale with me and he came up and said I think this is a holder for those glasses like you bought. He was right!
The box to the right was given to me by a friend 15 years ago...Just to the left you can see the old toaster. It was my aunts and we used it up at the cottage. Oh, I can barely contain myself here. I am so thankful to have these bits and pieces of the past. I will ramble more on Friday....I guess I should take a breath!
