I love vintage and I love antiques. I grew up with this red poppy pie plate in my mom and dads cupboard. It never came out, just for spring cleaning.
My sister told me it was my grandmother's pie plate and she remembered it from when she was little. I wonder if Cathy would help my grandmother bake pies? I'll have to ask.
This particular plate was manufactured in 1930-1940 by Hall Company, Superior Dinnerware. So now Miss Poppy Plate sits in my pie safe and looks adorable with vintage hot pads. I bought these from my friend Jan (whom I adore!).
I never knew you grandmother.....but I know I would have adored you! I promise to pass your pie plate along to family as the years go by and carry on your traditions.
Thanks for the pie plate mom :)
My Aunt Ruth was a lover of cookbooks (this is why I have an insane amount of cookbooks). I take them to bed and read them as novels.
The vintage cookbooks were given to me by Aunt Ruth and I picked up this orange pot at The Farm Chick's Antique Show in Spokane. I knew this little pot needed me.......I just knew :)
Some of my own finds, not that old but I love them so.
Children's sink-stove-oven and Hostess Cupcake Sign make me smile.
I love changing out this little stove and putting new cookies, spices and signs about.
Just the girl in me I guess!
A few of my cookbooks in a nook :)
Not vintage, not an antique but it's red and makes our family room fun.
This is one of the first things everyone asks about when they come downstairs to the family room.
We found ours at Cracker Barrel. They make really cute gifts and stocking stuffers too :)
Probably my favorite find at The Farm Chick's Show, a vintage revamped doll bed. I grabbed it immediately and took it to the car. Dan said, "Wow, you haven't even looked around much, are you sure?" No doubt.......that doll bed had to come home with us and it did :)
Pine cones in a dish, stitchery and old wooden spools.
Keeping it simple and with a touch of days gone by.
