I Have Been Busy!

I have been collecting decorative vintage kitchen accessories!

I find the colors/patterns cheerful. What do you think?

Decals? I usually have to strip paint of the wooden handles off of old stuff do to checking, peeling, cracking, and flaking. I then treat the wood with oil and wax.

I love the yellow, red and blue. I have my kitchen decorated in those colors, I do my best to get my small appliances in those colors, if not those I go for stainless.

Nope! These aren't decals. They are 1950s painted pieces. I found them in thrift shops and online.

Me too! But I don't buy blue small appliances, I get yellow, red, white or stainless.

I have so few blue pieces, it's the color I look for first. I also have dragons and teapots as objects and pictures in the same color scheme. I should group my Tea with Dragon pictures and post a pic of them. Very charming.

Back to my childhood. My mother had so many of those things in her kitchen. Thanks for the memory.
