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!
