Well, I didn't think there was anything more vintage than myself in my kitchen. However, at the Thanksgiving table several pieces were in use: GG grandma's matching platter, serving bowl and covered tureen, both G grandma's little serving/relish dishes, sugar bowls/creamers, and Gma's china. Lot's to pass on the gkids. I hope they will want them and cherish them.

Well, me, for starters I have two antique hand made rolling pins, a large collection of cookie cutters, some antique, some cast iron pots and pans, several antique aprons, and a beloved china platter that belonged to my great grandma when she was young. I also have a large stack of mismatched antique plates in a box. We never use them, but I'm never quite able to send them to the thrift shop

Oh this is a wonderful thread. Haven't had a chance to get on it till now. I have my husband's great grandmother's dishes and a lot of my own great grandmother's and grandmother's things. I have some potholders that my grandma crocheted and some Fire King dishes and custard cups. I have green dessert glasses that belonged to my grandma. I don't have too many things other than the dishes that I can put to use. I have lots of enamelware that belonged to both of them and I have a bean pot that I do use of my husband's gr. granny's. I love having all these things around that they used. I even have some pots that my great, great grandparents brought with them from Holland. I also have a tea set that I cherish that belonged to my grandma. So they are well considered vintage items. And I use all of them that I can.

We have an old wall mounted coffee grinder on the kitchen wall. My husband brings me freshly ground coffee every morning. He's six years older and retired, so I guess that he qualifies too......

I have a soft green enameled wood cookstove that my DH bought & installed for me last year for a present. It came with an assortment of vintage kitchen utensils that we use too. We also have some cast iron trivets that were my grandmothers. I am going away from appliances and replacing them with great hand tools, some which are vintage. So fun and a great connection to our ancestors. It's wonderful to eat "real food"!

We are in the process of packing for a move, so I am going through all my goodies right now. I collect pink depression glass, antique wooden butter molds from Europe, vintage chocolate molds, antique milk can from Germany (I have four different sizes in all) Vintage Lily of the Valley Tumble Ups--for your bed side tables when you have guest, Vintage tin plates, serving platters,trays,bowls, canisters, mostly by Daher of England. I have two china cabinets full of vintage tea cups and saucers along with tea pots, platters, plates, cream and sugar sets, vintage egg beaters from my grandmother along with her Pyrex mixing bowls, a shifter, a nut chopper, a wire collapsible egg basket, and the one thing I use and love the most.....my mother had a pot with a drainer basket in it--really it was an aluminum pot with polka dot holes all over it. When the handle came off, my mother started using it to keep eggs in it. That is what I use it for too.

Everyone who sees it wants to know where to get one.

Last weekend we moved my 1920's china cabinet up to the kitchen from the basement where it has been "stored" in our workout room for the past four years. So, now I can display my collection of vintage Johnson Brother's dishes! It was a heavy booger and I kept telling myself "don't drop it, don't drop it" while we were carrying up the stairs. The door to our pantry is also an old farmhouse front door on swinging hinges that had the top panels removed and replaced with metal grillwork sheeting to add ventilation and natural light.

I had'nt seen this post before...I love it...Hopefully I will awaken it to other farm girls to post:):):)

I have my grandmother's apron...my mom's white hutch with the meal barrel in it...green glass vintage bowls and my mom's rolling pin. Also...I have 2 mixing bowls my mom used. They came with a mixer that was bought for her in the early 1970's. I keep their memory alive everyday. My granny lived with us for about 18 years before my mom passed away in the early 1980's.

Hugs!

I have a vintage bread box that I do use to keep my bread in and not just decoration. I also have some vintage bowls and other odds and ends that I use that were my grandmothers, and I just got my grandmothers plate that she used to serve goodies to her company on. Not sure if I'll use it or just display it.

Oh my...what a great conversation! The most obvious vintage item in my kitchen is the salvaged barnwood we installed 4 years ago, taken from an old crumbling wreck that was falling down after over 100 years of faithful service to a herd of dairy cows. It's grey and rough and looks great as wainscoting, along with a sweet chair rail to top it all off, and the builders had just enough to finish the whole space.

It's a nice backdrop for the aprons hanging on a funky modern chicken wall hook, and the iron-handled dough cutter that hangs above the countertop. My friend gave us a beaufitul jelly cabinet where I keep my tea pot and mugs and all the cookbooks I married, plus a dry sink I found at an antique store in Amish country a few hours from home. Really love that old Betty Crocker cookbook!! Ever try the French Breakfast Muffins recipe? Outstanding!

Funny, I'm so used to everything in my kitchen I never really thought about it until I saw this forum. I"ve gotta go back and look now. :)

Hi All, I'm new to this, this is my first post. Some of the vintage things in my kitchen are items from my Mom, such as a butter mold from the dairy farm she was raised on, old spice cans she saved for some reason (I'm glad) and an old colander. I really want to get an old Daisy type butter churn, I love them!

I have rolling pins hanging on my wall that belonged to my Great Grandmother, Grandmother, husband Grandmother and so on. I love them and wish I could hear the stories they would have if they could talk.

I have several vintage items since I love antiques. I have old Fire King bake ware, an old metal picnic box, old glass jars including an old round candy jar among other things. I think, though, my favorite piece is the sign my DH made for me out of barn siding from my family's 110 year old homestead. It simply says 'FARMGIRL'. I hung it above my kitchen windows so I see it everyday.

This is a great topic, since I love, love, love vintage, antiques, primitive all things old. We are building a cabin and most of mine are in storage, I miss them so much. My Karr Range wood cook stove, white enamel ware with red trim and some with black, large pie safe, flour cabinet, to name a few. I would love to see pictures of everyone's kitchens too, that would be awesome. Mine probably won't be finished for a few more months.
I have enjoyed reading everyone's posts !!!!

Whoops.. this is hard to type on my nook..sorry! Con't: my two old yellow mismatched chairs and a red metal stepstool that has a seat that flips up so you can climb to the top step. Another fave is a huge red metal/enamal beverage dispenser with spicket that is great for bbq's. And my collections of pedestal cake plates and aprons. Thanks for another fun topic.

We can do it!

Let me think. O.K. First up. In 1932 a crew from Mexico came to Wise County, Tx. to clear the land for the new Eagle Mountain Lake. In that huge undertaking was a very large orchard of walnut trees. A man took all the cut walnut trees and made lumber from them. He made all sorts of furniture. One thing he did was to give every new bride he knew a dough roller made of the walnut wood. My Mom received hers in 1938.
One of my aunts gave me a spatula when I married in 1962. I purchased a hand mixer in 1963 with two books of Scotties Stamps.
I am happy to report that I still use them. And the cook is vintage also.
