Kitchen Antiques

Ok, I confess... I have a little bit of a "thing" for primitive kitchen collectibles. Wooden bowls, stoneware crocks full of rolling pins and wooden spoons, butter molds, butter paddles, antique yellow ware, bread boards, spice cabinets with little drawers... I love them all. They add so much warmth and history to a kitchen - a room which can easily become overpowered by microwaves, coffemakers, and sleek, shiny, professional-grade appliances (not that my kitchen is in any danger of that last one).
Here's a sampling of some of my favorite kitchen antiques from my own kitchen...

  2. Hi Ellie: I'm a new follower to your lovely blog. If I weren't a Victorian girl at heart I would have what you have with a little bit of everybody else thrown in! I think I won't find a better blog and then I find the next one. I'm in awe of your treasures....Judy at GoldCountryCottage
