Vintage kitchen gadgets make our kitchen inviting.
This blue and pink banded bowl was my husband's great-grandmother's. Everyone speaks fondly of her wonderful cooking and when I brought this bowl home, the evidence was embedded in the scalloped trim on the rim. The bowl was grungy looking but a good scrubbing removed all traces of ancient baked goods from the grooves.
If I'm not careful, I'll start a new collection of measuring cups. I had never noticed patterned and decorated measuring cups before but one day while browsing in a local antique mall, I came across these printed with a basket weave and fruit. They were on sale (sold!) and I didn't notice the little on was missing a handle till I brought them home. But I didn't really mind because they are too cute to care!
I've never washed these green measuring cups because the paint is flaking off. (Can you say lead-based? Surely not!) I've just dusted them and put them up for display on top of the cabinets. I don't know what I'll do when the get too coated with kitchen greasy dust. Oh well, I'll worry about that when the time comes!
