My 50's Cottage Kitchen

Today's post is for my friend Rosemary (Retro-Rosie)...She has always loved my kitchen. So here are some pictures I know she will like! I  love to collect vintage tablecloths, vintage aprons, french enamelware, old 50's Coca-Cola/Dr.Pepper soda signs, plaid tin picnic-baskets, advertising jars, trays, jadite, juice glasses, etc.. Most everything I have in my kitchen I have found at the former Lakewood Antiques Show, Estate sales, and Yard sales.  Just this past saturday I  found a coca-cola cooler from the 50's, hardly used, almost in mint condition for only $80. It books for $450.  Wow! What a deal! It is now displayed at the top of my stepback cupboard in my kitchen! I also found more jadite to add to my collection, some tablecloths, etc.. A few weeks ago, I found this great old chippy painted rack with 4 old hooks, super cute to display my flowered bib aprons on! I just love it! Well, So long for now...Have a wonderful day!

Antique Trophy's & Ironstone

Just this week I rearranged my entire den! I have never posted pictures of my den before. It stayed the same for many years, mainly decorated with my husbands extensive pottery collection, oil paintings, primitive milk painted furniture, vintage garden treasures, etc.. Which sounds all great, but I decided it was time for a little change! I grabbed up all my vintage & antique silver trophys, vases, teapots, a silver bridal basket, ironstone pottery,  an antique crazy quilt throw, framed black & white antique pictures, statues, an antique table that has been stored away for a long time, etc...You get the idea! It was very exciting to see it all come together! I hope you enjoy the pictures! Now on to another project.....Have a great weekend junkin!!
