wow, it is fun reading all these posts of who has "vintage" kitchen goodies....
I am lucky to have inherited from my grandparents old farm kitchen goodies. To start with, my favorite is the old country crock with lid.. you know the big thick crockery ones.. great grandma used to make pickles, and other old favorites with brine and spices. Then I have my granma's kitchen dishes.. fiesta ware.. love the set. Every time we set the table it's like a party. Then I have all my grandmothers hand embroidered kitchen towesl and hand made oven mits,I used her kitchen aide mixer until it blew a few years back. I love using the vintage green glassware dishes for special occasions. Im blessed. And from the looks of it.. a lot of us are.

I have a set of three Pyrex bowls that stack and one's red,one's green and one's blue. My dad saved all of his money when he was twelve to buy them for his mom for his parent's anniversary. Since he and my grandma are gone now they are SO dear to me! I use them all of the time and I imagine the love that is infused with anything I mix in them.

This is a great topic...

I have silverware, several mixing bowls, a few plates, a whale cookie cutter (cute because our last name is Wales--sometimes misspelled with an "h"), and a stand up, cylindrical bread box that has a door that rolls along its side to open and close. These all belonged to my husband's grandmother.

And, we have a small Shipmate stove (about 2' long x about 16" tall and maybe 9" deep) in the corner that is used to warm the kitchen in winter.
It also comes in handy as an extra place to keep food warm when we serve a large group.
This came from an old boat that had to go to the boneyard. I like this little stove a lot.

Hmm...what else...I have vintage aprons and a nice collection of vintage linens, which I sometimes bring out for very special occassions.

It's nice to see all the interesting things posted. Thanks for sharing about your treasures!

Karen

My Great Grandma's aprons, Westinghouse roaster with cabinet, a yellow metal cart on wheels, the Formica table and chairs set that my Mom and Dad got as a wedding present 55 years ago, lots of my Grandma's kitchen things. The rolling pin my Great Grandpap made 100 years ago, the wooden masher my Grandpap made for my Grandma. None of it's for show, we use them all!
Oh my gosh! After reading other posts, I'm reminded of lots of other things I have. Pyrex from the 50s, my Great Grandparent's red and white salt and pepper shakers, the crock my Great Grandma made sauerkraut in....lots of things handed down.

Mixing bowls, small Franciscan plates and bowls, some vintage linens, a bottle of wine, and probably some cheese in the back of the fridge!

All of my teacups, cast iron pans, and most of my tea tins have been passed on down to me. I love searching for vintage linens too!

A cast iron dutch oven which my grandmother bought for my mother when she married in 1947. It made roast beef for every Sunday dinner in my childhood, eaten in the dining room on the special set of blue dishes with white roses. My brother has the dishes.

All my cast iron skillets...from my Momma, she passed in 2006 and I love using them, also her cookbook she got in 1957 or so when my parents got married. I also have alot of bowls that I use to let my homemade bread rise in, that were Momma's too...I am sure there is alot more but that is what I can think of off the top of my head. Isn't it great to have some wonderful things that bring smiles to our faces?

Penny, you and I must be around the same age. My parents were married in 1956. My mom passed away in 2005. I had a dream about her last night and woke up crying. sigh....

I don't have a whole lot of vintage things, really...but I think every time I go to Value Village, I find something "new" to remind me of "back then" lol. And I'm only going to be 32 lol. Anywho...I have a small 1 1/2 qt Pyrex casserole dish (in that green color) that is like my mom's (she had the larger size), a blue creamer & sugar bowl from a vintage-y store in town here (Pyrex too, I believe), a tablecloth from my grandma that I never remember her using - it's too small for her large table, but it looks pretty. Wooden chairs for my table, an enamel bowl with lid from my grandpa's (I was going to put chockecherries in it on the weekend, but there were none)....ummm....I have my grandma's recipes that I'm in the (very slow) process of transferring to a blog (http://grandmasfeedingthechickens.blogspot.com/), but they actually belong to my aunt. Oh! I think my favorite thing (although it's not in the kitchen) is a lamp that I found at a yard sale :).

After 36 years of marriage and having been passed along old kitichen necessities when I first left home for graduate school you can find nearly all my kitchen things exept the microwave and a couple of modern composite tools are all vintage. A lot of my cooking pans are cast iron and I have a set of 1950s copper bottom Revere pots. My kitchen table is from the late 1800s and handmade by New Mexican furniture maker. The chairs are those wire chairs from my grandfather's drug store. These are my favorite kitchen things. I feel the generations of family everymoment in my kitchen using the tools so many women before me found essential.

The cast iron pans I use most were my mother's before I was born. In the '60's and '70's she was very hip, and got rid of or sold off all her 'married lady' jewelry and pearls and silver... but she kept the pans.I use them more than any others. Also a couple of hand-held graters, including a little rotary one, and some measuring cups and spoons I grew up with. Probably the funniest are some old wooden utensils. They belonged to my mother during her 'African roots' phase, and one had a person's head carved on it, the other had a rhino. Neither is exactly recognizable now, and the serving fork has about two tines... still work for spaghetti, so they get a lot of use!

Suzanne, It does sound like we are....I'm sorry that you had a dream that made you cry, but I understand I have those too and DH has to wake me from them sometimes....It's nice to meet you and see we have a little something in common.

A set of hand crocheted trivets that my mother gave me some
years ago which her mother had made for her one Christmas. They
are red on the edges and cream colored in the center. They have
never been used as they meant so much to my dear mom she just
couldn't bring herself to use them. They are very intricate and
I'm so glad they were preserved and handed down to me.

What I make with my
hands, I give with my heart ....

I got a cast iron skillet at an estate sale a couple weeks ago. I cleaned it and reseasoned it and have been using it almost daily. I like that I can keep a good kitchen tool working after old hands had used it for decades. That's why I have lots of my Great Grandma's, Grandma's and Mom's things as well. It keeps the home spirit flame going.

For a while I've been collecting clear glassware and recently got into candlewick. Well, for my birthday last month my grandma presented me with these salt and pepper shakers. They were a wedding gift to her in 1952. (And she and my grandpa are still going strong!) I said that I couldn't take her gift but she insisted. I can't express how touched I was. To me, this is better than fine china any day!

I have my great grandmothers Comal/Cast Iron Griddle. A few of my mothers pink Pyrex pieces and her rolling pin that she received for a wedding gift in 1956. I collect Blue Oxford Stoneware. Lots of other things, but those are my prize possessions.
