Nancy...I just saw your quote..."How old would you be if you didn't know how old you are?"
I just chuckled because I'm really 85 trapped in this 44 year old body! We joke because my daughter is 45 trapped in her 5 1/2 year old body! Let me throw my husband in there, too! The only ones who act their age are my boys---17 in June and 14. My husband, myself and daughter are such old souls--- and I wouldn't have it any other way!
The smile that brought to my face reading that made my day!!

Hi Christine....
I never had human children so I never had anyone to tell me I am too old for this or that, that is outside my aching joints first thing in the morning.

I found a sausage grinder in the basement and brought it up, cleaned the rust and put it on the side table.

Interesting seeing what everyone has in their kitchens. First off is me. I am always in the kitchen and I am vintage. I have lots of old vintage white enamelware with the black edging. I have some of the new pieces too to go with it. I have my grandmothers old rolling pin. I use it all the time, and old glass and aluminum cake pan, and an old aluminum grease container just like my mom had. I like to mix the old with the new as long as it is usable.

I have stacks of vintage cookbooks, which I dearly love. I also have an old green colander that my mom had back in the 70's. I have several other dishes that are vintage but the item I love the most is an old vintage coffee pot. It is a large white one. I absolutely love it. I leave it sitting on my stove top all year long.

I have this old gas stove from the 1930s that I found in north Georgia one year with a friend. The oven is rusted out inside, but there are 3 burners under the little cover . I would have it restored if I knew anyone locally that did this sort of work. I always wanted to make Thanksgiving dinner in it. This photo is staged with some scones, cooked in my regular oven, one Thanksgiving Day a few years ago. The little match holder on the right wall beside the stove belonged to my Mom and she used it on our gas stove in the kitchen growing up.



Then I created this Buttery beside the stove to house old jars, crocks, and my Mama's cookbooks on the bottom shelf and MaryJane's Cast Iron Cookbook which is a go to for me!

Winnie, I love the pictures. The old stove looks great. I just love to see old stoves. Even if you don't find someone to repair it, the stove is gorgeous just the way it is. I love the Buttery too. Very prim and homey

I have and use a toaster and a waffle iron that my parents got as wedding presents in 1940. They work better than the newer ones they replaced. Both are Sunbeam brand.

I love vintage kitchen things. I have some old, vintage bowls that I got at an estate sale. I love them. I have 2 very large ones and several various other sizes.
