White Wednesday; Spring in the Kitchen

Bunnies, chicks, and ducks oh my,
there seem to be a few of them in my kitchen.

I found this vintage Easter
 postcard print a couple of years ago
and framed it with a shabby little frame.

With the warmer weather I've opened the doors
to the sunroom and the kitties and I are enjoying
having our space back.
Don't tell them, they think it's "outside".

I found a few white things
on my flea market rounds recently and somehow
they've just landed in my kitchen.
Ever have that happen to you?

On their way to the antique mall booth...
but they just don't actually "get there"?

This old ironstone bowl, chips and all,
just needed to stay home with me.

Love those cracks and crazing.

Some napkins with a hint of spring color.

And an old concrete duckling waddled by...

I've never met a sugar bowl 
that I didn't fall in love with!
(even without the lid)

And my ironstone Homer Laughlin pitcher.

Bunn-bunn joins in the fun, too.

A few weeks ago at a city wide sale,
I found this little white cookbook holder.

Don't know what it's supposed to be,
or "used to be",
 but for now, it's a "cookbook holder".

1930 Kelvinator Fridge companion cookbook.

Everyone has room for a "Kelvinator"...

Don't ya just love these graphics?

An iron bird and a vintage bluebird tea towel
just say Spring.

Thank you Kathleen at Faded Charm!
Now go see what everyone else
is up to for White Wednesday.

Hope you're having a wonderful week!

 is just a week and a half away!

  11. Beautiful whites Debra. Your kitchen is def welcoming of Spring. Love the bunny frame too.

  12. Debra,

    I immediately spied the forsythia! I adore forsythia. It is memories of PA and my Dad loved it - so we had multiple plants everywhere. Seems we always had two huge bushes flanking the driveway no matter how many times we moved. Lucky you to be able to force those branches. I know it's supposed to be about the white, but for me it's all about the forsythia!

  18. Hi Debra, It's a very special kind of magnetism, that make some things just cling to you. No surgery or meds could help, so don't fight it ;-). I love your pretty new old ironstone bowl, the cookbook holder and the iron bird.
