Vintage Crochet Lines

About Me

My photo
I'm a lover of vintage times and simple elegance of another era. I'm waiting a while for my special little farmhouse. While I'm waiting, I'm making good use of my time creating lovlies with my crochet hook n thread or yarn, and baking and cooking from scratch for my family.

work at your pattern it will come out a

stitch at a time taken patiently.

You Who ! C'mon over lets chit chat !

It is the simple things which really do capture my heart.

A blast post from the past..I hope you enjoy reading and looking at my little special "kitchy" cupboard.

 Keeping this simple....I'm letting Kitchy do all
the talking...well some of it, I can't keep quiet.This is Kitchy at the Flea Market Store in Amish Country. She stayed there 3 years in the same place in the corner, outside all alone. Each time we went I would check to see if it was still there,and was glad that she was for I wanted her for my very own. Logistics of getting her home questionable.  I finally just had to have her,  I could see her charm, and just knew that she would be perfect in my little kitchen, filled with beauties from the hook n thread. :) 

In the corner where she waited for me 3 years.  Outside under the awning, she waited for me.
She did fit in the back of the Escape, gratefully an inch to spare, the seats folded down, I sat in the back with her all the way home. She "as a small hole in her side, which I chose not fix, my husband suggested putting a little "sputzy" in there, it works for me.
I painted her a cream colored off white. And fashioned her up with glass doorknobs, I love glass doorknobs, I'm kinda like Aunt Clara from Bewitched, I collect them when I can.  
. Tassie is up on top...see that Pat? Hooks and Books
A special place for Tassie..:) The potholder Gloria Crochet Galore  made me in the swaparoo adorns the drawer. And in the header collage, you'll see two doilies which I won in a giveaway from By hooks 4 you
Enjoy your day :)

Love how it turned out. Just bought an old crocheted pot holder from a resale shop today. I am collecting some and when I get enough I am going to hang on the bulk head above my kitchen sink. Need a few more though because it is a lot of space to fill. Looks great! Thanks for sharing!

Faith said...

Hi Faith- I love this cupboard . She looks like she was made for you! Is it a 'corner' cupboard? Or is she just standing there looking pretty?! Have a great week

Faith said...

Hi Pat,
Kitchy is free standing. I've never seen anything like it, and would love to know what her original purpose was, or where she was kept in the home. Thank you for stopping over
