We have an Old Fashioned Pantry

Our old fashioned pantry has old jars, bottles, flour, sugar bins etc. We built our house and included an Old Fashioned Pantry.

Oh Aria! I love your butcher block. Is it maple or oak? What size is it?

I want a pantry too, but unless I am willing to give up a coat closet, it is not gonna happen.

You make braided rugs too! So do I?

Here are a couple of mine.





I am going to make some for my kitchen to match the fabric I have chosen for curtains. I have all the material, just have to get to work.

You could have knocked me over with a feather.

I went to the church today to check out the mixer, and they had this really neat old working refrigerator! It was just like the one we had in our kitchen when I was 5!

It is a Montgomery Wards 1950's model and is white. They told me they are getting rid of it and I could have it for free!

It looks a lot like this one in the photo. Next time I get a chance I will take a photo with my cell phone.

Well, it must have been a few years old cause mom and dad replaced in by the time I was 9.

With my parents' sense of economy it must have lived out its useful life.

I like the look sometimes of the vintage stuff, and if I were doing my entire kitchen vintage then yes it would fit. But, I am a huge fan of the titanium or brushed SS look with black trim, so that is the way I will be going.
All in all though some pretty cool stuff here, I especially had to browse over UB's stove, the butcher block, some of those 50's stove and fridges, and a neat cookie press! All very cool.

Sorry...I meant the one in our kitchen must've been new.
