I am such a sucker for things that are old and worn, they tell such history. Therefore I really love this print because it combines old and worn with kitchen utensils! That is my all time favorite combination. I think I first saw this print via designsponge but it's by artist Kari Herer on etsy. When I was little my mom loved (still does really) to go to the antique stores and shop around. I would always make a beeline for the little glass bottles that looked like someone dug them up from the backyard or little glass medicine bottles. I loved the old fashioned long glass drink stirrers. I would take them home and treasure them, all lined up on a shelf or hidden away in a box under the bed. I still have an obsession with all things vintage kitchen. Even our kitchen table is an old Formica set with these great asparagus green chairs.

We really should have an afternoon when we share our collections - I don't think I can get enough vintage kitchen stuff! All of our everday dishes are vintage dinerware. BTW, I used my altered collections in my MAT thesis - I have a whole load of real silver ware rescued from thrift stores all over Baltimore! Perhaps there is a tea party in our future! Or maybe a gin and tonic cocktail hour!
