A New Vintage Kitchen Vignette

July 21, 2012

If you follow my blog, you know that I have a kitchen corner built-in that I change out often. When you last saw it, I was displaying a vintage baking vignette.

The last time you saw my vintage aluminum and tin vintage kitchen collectibles, they were in this wood basket. Just this week!

But, I wanted to use the wood basket for a Christmas in July vignette. Soooooo here is a new vintage aluminum and tin utensil vignette, in the kitchen, in the corner built in.

Remember this large glass lidded jar (maybe 2 gallon) that I found in my Tabletop Treasures post? I think it worked out great for my vintage aluminum utensils and kitchen items.

I added a vintage green water/juice jar that was my Grandma's and a wire mesh colander and Bromwell sifter.

Also an old Dominion toaster and a red/tan ticking runner.

I still have my small crocks and vintage mixing bowls on the bottom! I think the jar is a great display for the aluminum kitchen pieces.

Look for my black, painted, distressed basket in next week's Christmas in July's linky parties.

  1. Hi lovely lady.
    I love your kitchen corner built-in with all your vintage baking goods!! I also love the cane sugar bag and the Toaster is to die for... I would like to thank you so much for your sweet comments on my Island Tablescape.. I hope you and your family are having a wonderful weekend.

  2. Oh, you got it goin' on girlfriend! That's the first time I've seen the whole corner top to bottom. What a neat area and I love all your crocks on the shelves. The glass jar is perfect and keeps the dust off which is wonderful as us "junkers" have enough stuff to dust! More than most people I would imagine. I saw jars similar to that at Wal-mart and I was looking at them thinking they would be good for something. Although I'll have to pay $10.00 or more. I have enough little kitchen collectibles to fill up one of those too I think. Great job! It's hard to think about Christmas in this heat but I will as this is when I plan my projects for making Christmas presents. Enjoy your Saturday night!

  3. I think that corner is just the greatest display spot! All your items are just what I love to find too!!

  4. Oh you have it decorated beautifully!! What a great collection of aluminum pieces.

  5. Love how you displayed your collection of molds.


  6. I love all your vintage kitchen utensils! So much fun to collect, too.

  7. Your vintage kitchen collection looks great! Love that corner cabinet! I am a fellow partier over at 1929 Charmer!

  8. Very sweet vignette!! I have been picking up those cute jello molds lately- just love them!!!

  9. I love your little corner vignette in your kitchen. I think the kitchen collectibles look great in the glass jar, note: that is one large glass jar! It's really a great corner, and everything really works together! Don't get made at me, but I want that cane sugar cane bag! Thanks for sharing your creative inspiration with Sunday's Best - you help to make it a great par.tay!

  10. Came over from Charmer. I passed up one those giant pickle jars today because I could not think what to store in it. I did not even think about my poor tin collection spilling out all over the place. Thanks for the idea. Would you please make house calls - my kitchen definitely needs someone like you!

  11. Your vintage tin goodies look so fun in the big jar! Love it!

  12. Great idea! Store it and show it at the same time. Love it. laurie

  13. Carlene, that huge jar is great, especially for holding those tins. I love being able to see them and yet having them contained. I have three glass canisters and one is empty. What a great idea to put my tin cookie cutters in there. I am going to do that as soon as I get home. So glad I saw this post! Those cute tin cutters are hidden away in a drawer and all this time they could have been on display. Great idea. Thanks!

  14. This is such a good idea and cute as heck! I am going to go share with my FB friends right now. :)
