I love old kitchen utensils.  Why?  They are so versatile!  Here are just a few of my past posts featuring vintage utensils.

    Very creative on your repurposing!

  4. Old kitchen tools are fun. With grater 3I spray painted it gold and greenery and ribbon and set a votive inside. I had a round one and a smaller one done the same way. Very pretty for kitchen
    Christmas decor

  5. Carlene ... you are always so creative with displaying your kitchen gadgets. I am sure you have some fun stuff planned for the newly thrifted ones. I could add the masher to my collection and I love the old garlic press if that is what it is.
    Happy week,
