I remember when I was young not liking
older things at all. I liked history but
I can’t say that I liked the history
behind an item or the desire to
have an older item in my home,
with or without that history. As
I have aged, that has changed. My
home is a mixed of new and old, hand
me down and then the newer things.
I find myself leaning more to the older
hand me downs or the things that I have
acquired at a sale, flea market or antique
store. These are my trash to treasure items
that I am posting today.
First there is my black kettle. I would say

you don’t find items made like this anymore.
It was given to me by an old friend a couple of
years ago and a great added addition to my
A couple more items given to me are the
meat grinder and the egg keeper. A
friend of my Mothers that lives up the
street from her was having a yard sale
a year or so ago and these items belonged
to her Mother in law. The sale was finishing
up and I had these items in my hand to
purchase. Ms. Betty just told me to take
them, she would not let me pay for them.
Once again, really nice additions to my
kitchen oldie look!
Last but not lest is all the items I have
