Retro Kitchens - Not a Thing of the Past!

 In no way am I suggesting that this type of kitchen is coming back in style. Not at all.

That being said...

I think there is something to be said for vintage and retro kitchen items. Just a few pieces here and there to give you an eclectic feel. After much reflection as to why I was so attracted to pieces such as this:

I realized that many of these "eclectic" kitschy items were in fact items that were near and dear to my heart. Either my parents at one time had them, surely hand-me downs from more well-off family members, or my grandmother STILL has them, a testament to her frugal, depression era ways.

Most people have an eclectic coffee mug collection, but what about an eclectic plate collection?

Or a set of mixing bowls that remind you of when you would make cookies with a parent or grandparent.

I'm in love with outfitting a kitchen with just a few pieces of retro decor and serving ware. Buyer be ware however when it comes to cooking ware. Sometimes it is best to go modern...and lead-free.

Just keep in mind when picking out pieces, that you must absolutely love it! Don't buy vintage for the sake of having something vintage. Buy it because you will treasure it! Let's face it, not everyone is going to appreciate a set of Toadstool Cookie Jars - but if you do, than that's all that matters!
