Pink In The Kitchen!!


It's time for Vintage Thingies Thursday, where Suzanne is our hostess at Coloradolady!

I thought I would share some of my pink things from the kitchen. Those of you that follow my blog may be surprised that I have any pink, because I love red so much. But if it's a vintage kitchen item, I don't care what color it is! This is my little pink Sunbeam mixer. I love it! If anything makes me feel like June Cleaver in the kitchen, this is it!

This is an old ice crusher that my sister gave me. I've never used it though. It just sits up on a shelf, looking all pink and cute!

An old plastic colander. Definitely too cute to use!

An old cookie or biscuit jar, of a little girl with a pink beret. She looks like a Campbells kid, doesn't she?

And finally we have some miscellaneous pieces of pink melamine dishes. I'm still on the lookout for some pink plates. Pink plates would make anything taste better, wouldn't they? I think so! Who knows, maybe I'll find some at the next garage sale. I do love the thrill of the hunt!
If you enjoyed seeing my vintage pink kitchen stuff, why not head over to Suzanne's, where you can see alot more vintage thingies!

So very retro. Love the pink in your kitchen. Fun stuff..it is stuff I remember the first time around. Yes, since you asked ~ I am that old.

I love the goodies jar.

I just realized my mixer is vintage, but it is just plain white so it isn't as interesting as your pink one. I think my mother had a yellow one.

Love all the pink. Somedays I would give anything to feel like June Cleaver! A little spin of a pink mixer would do the trick for me as well :0)

I love your biscuit jar! I am a sucker for old kitchen stuff, even if it doesn't work!

Jingle said...

I love it! I'm a red person, too, but I can totally see what would make you want to buy lots of this great vintage pink stuff! That mixer is AMAZING!!! Totally my favorite piece!

Susie's country cottage said...

I found myself in pink denial for a while because I used to think it was a bit too girly to have in the kitchen but now after some pink therapy at your blog I love it again and will probably be buying more pink stuff! I love the mixer.

My grandma had a whole set of pink melmac in her pink kitchen with pink formica countertops. And a turquoise living room. And a pink and black bathroom. It was the perfect 50s bungalow ... hmm, wonder if that inspired me?

Candace said...

What neat pink kitchen items! I can just see you now in your *pink* ruffled June Cleaver apron!
Cheers!

Amy said...

Fabulous pink things! I found (and sold) pink melanmine dishes at an estate sale so they are for sure around! Right now I'm hanging on to an amazing pink hamper that I found - I am using it and it doesnt go with anything...but I live it so :)

The imPerfect Houswife said...

OH MY GOSH - How TOTALLY cute!!!! I was just talking to my (non-blogging) mom about Vintage Thingies Thursday and how all those things that seemed old and junkie at one time are now treasures to me and why, oh why, did she let me say NO when she was getting rid of things?? Same reason my kids don't listen to me! ha ha Thanks for sharing your treasures ~ ♥

We are kindred spirits! red is my favorite also and I just love this old vintage stuff. Love that cookie jar. Glad to hear you know what I mean about kids and having hope that they may one day understand your taste in old things. I do believe your odds are better with a daughter than mine with two sons! thanks for visiting my blog, glad I found yours!
