A dish towel turned doily, embroidered and crocheted by my dad’s momA flour sifter, a canning jar filled with potpourri, a potholder my grandma made, a juicer and a picture I took of my niece, and of Kevin and me in Costa Rica on our mission trip “honeymoon”
Cookbooks dating to the 1950’s–I love the Boys and Girls Cookbook, I used it when I was a girl. Included within the Dinner for Two Cookbook are such delicacies as Jellied Chicken or Baby Liver and Onions. I am totally in love with Betty Crocker.

Kitchen canisters from the early ’60’s.
And this is my coup de force although it’s not really on display in my kitchen because I can’t figure out how to display it well. It’s an apron my great grandmother made with interchangeable holiday pockets. I don’t know when she made it, but she got married in 1915 so it’s “vintage” fo-sho!
I LOVE VINTAGE! I would totally be a ’50’s housewife, if heels didn’t hurt my feet ;-). Seriously though, So In Love with the era–50’s movies, the style, the class, the dressing for dinner, the gardening in ‘slacks’, the slower pace.
