or those whom have known me through the ages,
know far too well. . .I don't like chickens!
But. . .
my chicken wire cabinet
in On Crooked Creektt's 1970's Galley Style Kitchen,
seemed the appropriate spot to place a "chick".
Upon his retirement,
I commissioned "Mr. Ed" to bring a bit of French Country
into On Crooked Creektt's kitchen by removing the wooden insets
to the cabinet doors above the range hood and inserting chicken wire.
I filled the cabinet with my ever growing 1940's ~1950's Restaurant ware.
The second in my featured series, these are a few of My Favorite Things!
I l o v e this classic green stripe on white!
It brings back the fond memories of my childhood
and eating at the local diner with my family.
During our Annual Trout Fishing Trip to Bennett Spring State Park,
I was fortunate to add two unique pieces to my collection.
a lidded bowl, is a dinner roll bowl.
Petite in stature and the exact size of a square dinner roll!
The lidded bowl in this vignette is a biscuit bowl.
Again, petite in stature, but shaped round like a biscuit!
These were popular aboard Railroad Diner Cars.
The opposite side of the cabinet has been custom designed
with the addition of a shelf to allow for storing the numerous serving pieces.
a lidded jar, is a condiment jar.
While "Mr. Ed" envisions this petite jar filled with Strawberry Jam,
I can imagine the delicious homemade Piccadilly Relish of his Mothers.
A trio of glass pitchers brought from our travels in Germany,
are now given a restful place of honor among one of my favorite things!
During our residency in Europe,
these pitchers were filled with syrup, orange juice and milk
as they graced our daily breakfast table.
The dinner plates within this collection are a meager 8 inches in diameter.
it is the oval platters that I enjoy most!
They remind of the days gone by filled with a hamburger and fries!
Although, "Mr. Ed" found these coffee mugs (background) at our local Antique Mall,
it is the cup and saucer that I remember my parents using for their cups of coffee.
The simplistic style of this dinnerware not only
brings memories of a simpler way of life,
but it reminds me of my beloved maternal Grandmother's Restaurant.
Simply called Ford's Cafe.
Placed within On Crooked Creekt's 1970's Galley Style Kitchen
this simplistic restaurant ware beckons me to embrace change,
yet brings me great joy in reminiscing of my loved ones
and encourages me to pursue my passion
of cooking and entertaining within my home.
my hope for each of you is that you
*pursue your passions.
Thank you for allowing me to share
a few of My Favorite Things!
