I love very much all vintage kitchenalia and use them all! the jadite is from America and it is so wonderful I often wonder who loved them before me.
Yes collecting "cook books" the older the better and well green depression glass is a must have in an old miners cottage kitchen! (smiles)
My husbands passion is the sea! and boats so I like to add them into our decor after all he lives here too! :o) One of our daughters and family gave Rob this and another for his birthday they are very old and beautiful, He was thrilled with them.
Being able to share these photos will make the packing easy now! and the unpacking will be done in our home when it is then twice the size with lots more room for the family to visit and for the grandchildren to rush around in. However there will always be little corners in my oldfashioned vintage kitchen.
