I Feel Lucky

My husband's boss and wife were having a garage sale this last weekend. They know how much I love the red and white vintage kitchen items. Being the wonderful people that they are, they called us and said I could come the day before and have first dibs on these things. Wow! I know they gave me a great deal for all these items as well! Thank you, Daniel & Maggie! I love everything and can't wait till our kitchen is finished to actually utilize them!! I've been collecting vintage red and white crocheted potholders as well. I get giddy just thinking about it all!

Maggie said that the ice crusher/maker thing was her mother's. Makes it even more special that she'd share it with me!

Hi, I am going to redo my 1920s kitchen in red and white too. It's white and jadite green now. I think red and white looks so crisp and clean. Now I have to find curtains...

Love, love, love all the red and white! They were so great to let you have "first pick" and to make it a deal too. Can't wait to see pictures with all the pieces displayed.

I love all of your items. I have a few pieces of red and white enamelware in my kitchen and have a kitchen wreath with some red handled kitchen utensils. I will be looking forward to seeing your finished kitchen.

Those are gorgeous! I'm surprised that they were willing to part with them, but how nice that they gave you first dibs.

Look at all that cool stuff! I love red vintage kitchen things, too, although I only have a few pieces. How lucky you hit such a jackpot...isn't it great to have friends who know you?
I think I like the pastry blender best of all. I actually used mine (modern style) to cut butter into a coffee cake dough this morning. But you can use it to chop eggs, too. Ooooh...and I love that nice, big spatula!

Oh my! I just discovered your blog and I'm so loving it. I'm a fellow Pacific Northwester and happy to find your wonderful Blog. I had to chuckle, because two of your posts were so similar to a couple of posts I made earlier this year! What a crack up. I LOVE Red and White Kitchen anything. Especially Enamelware and kitchen gadgets.
