My First "Show and Tell Friday"

Okay...Kelli from http://www.kellishouse.blogspot.com/ has started a Show and Tell and we have been asked to share something special to us. I have lots of things I'd like to share, but I'll start with these...some vintage kitchen stuff! All of these pieces came from The Hub's family and while he doesn't quite get why they are so special, I absolutely love them!



Look at that ginormous yelloware bowl! And it was under the kitchen cabinet filled with old grocery bags. YIKES! I rescued it in a hurry and will NEVER banish it to the bottom of any kitchen cabinet. The old Evenflo liquid measurer is the best for adding any kind of liquid to anything...no spills. (and if you have been visiting me for a bit, you already know about my kitchen skills...virtually non-existent so any help will be accepted...).


The vintage scale is from The Hub's grandparents house and who knows where before that. The biscuit cutter looks like the handle has been hand-soldered and has had plenty of use. Not by me, of course.
Here's the scale close up. The Hub's family was in and around Chicage for many years, so I'm guessing it was new when it became a part of his family. Don't you just love the font on this label?

See what I mean about the handle?

Anyway..I have a love for all things vintage and while it seems like I tend to be more on the primitive side, the whole pink and white cottage thing is quickly working it's way into my heart! I even bought some pink Fiesta Ware while thrifting the other day..

Sure do hope that everyone had a safe and happy 4th...it rained here most of the day, but the clouds split just in time for fireworks! We had a great day! But, the fun isn't over...I'm headed out tomorrow for this:
The Hub surprised me with this fun day for our anniversary...it's just 4 of us girls and we are sure looking forward to this. Full report to follow!

Enjoy your weekend everyone...!

Really nice vintage pieces. I use to have one of those evenflo measuring cups when my children were small and I mixed fomula.
