....Watcha Got Cookin'?
Moving into a new home has inspired me to redecorate and daydream about how I would l♥ve the new kitchen to look. I realize that these things take time, and since I'm now in a place that I no longer have complete control over (like...what color my walls, floors, cabinets, etc., basically a rental) I'm forced into the cyber world, decorating in my mind, and making my blog as pretty as I want, knowing that one day all the pieces will be put together in the kitchen of my dreams.
So, welcome to my "Dream Kitchen".
Can you smell the chocolate chip cookies baking in the oven?
Can you see the cherry pie sitting in the window sill as
the fresh country breeze blows the aroma through the house.
Did you hear that? Robins are singing outside!
Now that the mood is set....

It just makes me want to go and get my pearls and heels
and walk around pattin' all my kids on their heads.

I just think they are as sweet as can be.
This could very well be on my "Need" list.
"Honey, I really think I need a minty green
I do, I do, I do!! It would help make all my cake batters uniformally moist!"
Lola Krauss is the only Etsy shop
that I found that had this mixer in this color with a matching cord
...HELLO...need I say more?
No matter how I try, I can't escape decorating in red.
It just happens!
I've tried blue, pink, and green, but red just slips its way right in.

speaks to the inner woman that would really love to wear red patent leather shoes
everywhere she went.
But, as that's not very practical, having a beautifully USEFUL, made in the USA, vintage collectible is.
Aren't the colors on these vintage
just eye poppin'?!?
I don't think I've ever seen them in these pretty colors before.
It was so hard to just pick one thing from
She has so many unique colorful selections that will remind you of being a kid in
yo momma's kitchen.
A kitchen just isn't a kitchen without Canisters!
I think Artsy Mama knew I was going to stop in...
see how she put out the polka dots just for me (just kiddin')?
And there goes that red again....gotta have it!
I really could have used this little guy the other day.
I was making some home made icing for a WWII cake recipe
I found in a great cook book at the library.
Anywho....the recipe wanted me to sift the cocoa and powdered sugar together,
and I had to use a little tiny strainer to do it. (took For-E-Ver)
This Vintage Flour Sifter
from Sweet Cottage Dreams
Clearly I'm a fan of pretty crocheted things, and
I particularly have a real soft spot
for Vintage Hot Pads.
Is it just me or is there something about them that says...
"cozy"..."Mama made these"..."remember that one Thanksgiving when".
Whatever it is you hear them say,
you can find them at the Vintage Eye shop.
I'd l♥ve to know what your favorite vintage kitchen accessory is. Pass along some of your favorite finds, and who knows, maybe they'll end up in Pink Links.
