Vintage Finds in The Kitchen



Vintage Finds in The Kitchen- I found these fun, little vintage items (they had red paint originally) in Idaho City last summer (an old mining town). They were $1.50 each. I kept them in my little china hutch, and this winter thought I should put them out somewhere. Then I had a great idea- hang them over the cupboards!


I used a little lightweight fishing line to tie it together, and then Dave helped hang it up so it wouldn't fall into my cooking or break the glass range top. Not a good idea! It's fun to think of who used these when they were new, maybe back in the 30's or 40's. Hmmm. Maybe someone named Nancy!

A Great Website- I can't remember if I posted this before, but it's fun! You can scroll thru the decades. Retro-housewife.com I love the 40's best!
