I collect collections.
When people ask me what I collect, and just say “stuff.”
There is no way they would remotely believe me if I said
“anything I can.”
I particularly love anything vintage. Particularly, anything
vintage for the kitchen. My Farmhouse Style Kitchen allows
me to display many of these items I collect, but I also enjoy
putting many of them to use in various ways. I thought I
would share a few of my vintage items and how I put them
Vintage Farmhouse Kitchenware
I fell in love with vintage Kitchenware when I was a young
wife and my Mama gave me several of my grandmother’s cast
iron skillets. She also gave me her grater, which I still have and
use today. It’s old and rusty, and I don’t feel it’s safe to use with
food, but I put it to another good use.
It acts as a nightlight in my Kitchen and adds ambiance to the
room when we are entertaining. I simply add a small glass enclosed
candle inside, and it gives off the softest glow.
I also have a vintage sifter that was my Mother’s. She was going
to throw it away years ago when she replaced hers, and I had a fit.
I snapped it up, much to her dismay. She said “it’s too old to use.”
Then she thought a second and said, “well, I guess I am, too, but I
ain’t ready to be thrown away, either. ” 😛
I like to use it to grow various herbs. Because it has a wire
mesh center, it allows me to easily water the plants as needed.
I just place the whole container in my kitchen sink and give it
a good drink, and the water is quick to drain through.
Here are a few more of some of the many vintage Kitchenware
items I have…
At front is one of the smaller cast iron skillets I own. This size
if perfect for serving melted butter, and I love using it for warm dips.
I place the skillet right on a large, wood cutting board surrounded
by crusty bread slices.
In the back, you can see one of my collection of vintage kitchen scales.
I used another scale during my Farmhouse Spring Tour to hold
a candle and some speckled eggs.
One of the things I have recently added to my kitchen, which
is not vintage but looks old, is a One-Gallon Utensil Crock.
I was having a hard time finding (or affording) an actual
vintage crock large enough to hold my huge collection of
Kitchen Utensils (another collection – haha). So I did some
research on Amazon and found this beauty.

Finally, one of my very favorite pieces… a blue and white
enamel colander. I can’t tell you where I found it or even how
long I have had it. It seems to have always been part of my
kitchen, no matter where we lived.
I love the chippiness of it. I use it often. Remember when I
used it as a Succulent Container?
Today, I made a fresh batch of Freezer Strawberry Jam. Our
berries are just starting to come in season and I am soooo excited.
So, as you see, some of my collection has a utility other than being
awesome and pretty to look at. 🙂
And when they hold something as delicious as these little nuggets
of goodness… well, how can that be a bad thing?
