When we bought our 20’s era brick bungalow in ’06, one of our (G.O.’s) first projects was to gut and re-do the original kitchen.
The space to the left of our fridge originally had a pub table + 2 stools, which we NEVER, EVER used. Something about our dining in front of the TV!?
SO, out with the old + in with the new vintage, red table — a giftage from my friend, Stacey, who knows of my love for all things vintage +/or red!
Of course, the mixer looks great — as my stepdaughter, Marnie, said, the KitchenAid mixer’s job is to sit on the countertop + mock all the other appliances! Ha! Fun!
Speaking of which, this poster (below) is from ’92; it survived the elimination of most of my ‘stuff’ from that era.
How could it not? The artist — Catherine Grunewald — signed, dated + personalized it with my 2 boys! Years ago, she was profiled on Mary Emmerling’s show, Country Style, on HGTV.
Oh, + I sold those Hoosier canisters in my shop. Love them!
My dad gave me that cooler (below), as he, too, is hip to my vintage + red ‘stuff’ love! When not cooling beverages, it stores all my gardening magazines. I’ve saved way too many magazines.
But I digress. My friend, Linda Weathers, made the basket, which I love for its blue spongeware handles.
And yes, I did buy that radio because it’s red + looks old-fashioned!
How cool are the labels of these Woodchuck Ciders? Tell me I’m not the only one who buys something because it’s been packaged attractively!
