I love to see tours of other people's homes, especially kitchens. So in tune with that, I thought I would share my kitchen such as it is. If you want to see a kitchen from the fifties, I have one. Other than flooring and an added dishwasher, this is the home's original kitchen. We bought this house after my hubby's grandmother passed away. She was the original owner and the cleanest most persnickity woman I ever met. I mean that in a good way. It is the reason the kitchen was kept in such good care. Ready for a time warp?
Love doing dishes and looking out my window.
Original stove hood. Copper is what I was told it is made of. Not sure about that.
Oranges from the yard.
Hung this pot rack here though it has never held a pot. Too low. Just old things from my mother's kitchen.
We cram this banquet with 7 people sometimes. Dad and I get the bench. The kids and their friends all squeeze.
Finally figured out where to place my spatterware coffee pot I just bought.
50s houses have lots of doors.
Snack jar I always keep filled for the kids. Usually it holds Goldfish but today I couldn't resist the Lil' Debbies.
Okay do you want one now? They are great frozen.
There you have my simple kitchen. What I did not show you were the funky tiles I have strategically hidden. Turquoise blue Sunburst tiles. I even see dishes with that pattern in antique stores. Have never been able to embrace them but maybe someday I'll go more retro in here but I just love cozy so much more.
