This is the hall...you may have taken a look before...oooo..let's not go into the laundry room today...hehe.
Click pics for closer look.
|These 2 Lodge cast iron skillets commemorate United We Stand and the Smokey Mountains. I use them for large trivets The Morton Salt ad sign is a trivet. the copper mold and metal wall hook begin my Strawberry theme.|
Love plaster fruit. My Grandma and Mom both had/has em on the walls. Again, they make great trivets.
|The 1940's wooden cutting board in the left corner was my grandma's and to the right of that are some of my vintage cookbooklets in a metal paper plate holder. Some I give away with my apron's and others are my keepers..yes... they are used.|
|And, at the end of this hall are a framed Strawberry packing label, a metal ad sign,|
strawberry themed cross-stitch meal prayer, and a 1940's wooden shopping memo board.
|Those are a few of my hand-wrought aluminum serving pieces on the wall between the kitchen and dining room and then below that my plate rack.......................|
|that holds my strawberry china, molds, an apple scented wall basket, and more plaster fruit|
|AS you can see the border is a vine of strawberries. The color scheme is red, black, and white|
|The decor over the sink that's between to two cabinets.|
|The matching cabinet with more vintage treasures and cookbooks, and of course you see vintage aluminum all around|
|This is over the stove|
|Here's a close-up of the strawberry accent lamp over the sink.|
|and this is our picnic basket....Scotch Plaid....sometime I'll have to show the whole collection I have. The Campbell's Soup set isn/t old, but it shows the Soup Kids from the 30's to now.|
|As you can see from past posts I collect vintage cookbooks and this shelf over my baking center is only half pic'd|
Below is the rest of the area.
|The mixer was a Christmas from my CarGuy. He saw that it was a Sunbeam vintage reproduction, |
so it was the perfect present.
I hope you enjoyed your peek at my kitchen. I enjoy cooking there so much and everything around has a special meaning or memory. LOL...there is even more space to fill in for other vintage finds and sometime soon I hope to show a little decor updo.....no change in color or theme..just small tweeks.
Now, you grab the drinks and we'll head out and see what everyone else is doin...there are some great Blog Parties thru HERE the whole week
