For Fall when I showed you my kitchen, I had a picture of my Hoosier cabinet and realized I never done a post on it.
It is so precious to me because my Mom and Grandfather got it for me as a Christmas present some
18 years ago.
I found it at a antique store in an old log cabin house in Oakland IL (home of Tete).
When we would go there, I dreamed of having it as mine one day.
Well, as you know it did. My Mom and Grandfather had it delivered all the way to St. Louis for me.
I was cleaning it up for Christmas
I like it because it had all the bells and whistles.
A bread box drawer, rolling pin holder, flour bin......and might I say it was pretty authentic,
it had flour still in the bin!
I love decorating it and it has always been a centerpiece of my kitchen.
When I purchased my house, I had to make sure I bought a home with a wall
big enough for it.
I found some eyelet shelf paper in my hometown when the dime
store was still open.
The upper cabinet houses my collection of Cameo Depression glass.
all the pulls, latches etc. are original
Canisters for your salt, pepper, baking powder
The inside holds vintage cookbooks and my Mother's and Grandmother's recipe boxes.
I found some recipes I copied for my cousins that were their Grandmother's.ssshhhhh
don't tell them they won't know they are in Germany!
3 small drawers, this one holds my baking items from my childhood.
My little rolling pin, baking pans and cookie cutters.
A great place to store my dish towels
The side drawers, one holds my Mom and Grandmother's cookie cutters.
The others are a silverware drawer and a drawer with all those recipes we saying were going to make when we cut them out of the paper but don't!
a pull out cutting board
At Christmas, I always tie on my apron on the left and my Mom's on the right.
I remember cooking and laughing in the kitchen I grew up in with these on.
I think I always wanted one because I remember that at 1515, my paternal Grandmother had 2.
One in the kitchen and one on the back porch.
My one cousin still has one of them
I better go finish my decorating!
