I love finding vintage style retro kitchen items for the home. – Etsy is probably one of my favorite sources for that! So I have decided to make this retro week here on FamilyProof. So after some good old fashioned web surfing here are some of my favorite finds. I think these items scream “glam housewife,” but not “real housewife” a la Orange County…
Plus, it’s Wednesday and we probably all need to do a little shopping to get us through the rest of the week… am I right? Of course I am!
1. Could micro tumbler glasses be any cuter? There are also plates and bowls to match!
2. Stripy dish towels, I swoon…although with about 20 in my kitchen, I’ve must take this out of my retro kitchen shopping spree (for today!).
3. Did anyone else’s grandmother have Pyrex bowls galore? If so, why not find a print that reminds you of summer days spent stirring jello and fruit together for jello salad- come on, who’s with me?
4. Do 1970 style Coca Cola glasses remind anyone else of an old school diner… I’m pretty sure my Mom has some up in her attic.
5. Nothing, absolutely nothing, is sexier than a frilly retro apron– in the kitchen or out of it. Woah!
6. The diamond print on the side of this coffee maker adds a little bit of retro glam to an otherwise plain appliance
7. These cake tins need to ship to the USA – and then they will have a home on my counter
8. Want to really unleash your inner 50′s housewife? Here’s a step by step on how to make your own apron
9. A red kitchen scale that could also double up as a fruit bowl- way cuter than the digital one I’ve got
10. I think we all know why this Kitchen-Aid mixer is on here..
11. Crockpots are my life- and my life is also baby blue… coincidentally enough, my slow cooker just kicked it
12. Doesn’t this toaster just belong in a 1950′s diner with some poodle skirts? Or on your retro kitchen counter..
