Retro Small Appliances for the Kitchen

My sweet pink coffee pot finally bit the dust........I'll miss her!      After looking long and hard for another pink one (for less than $300)   I gave up the search and went another way.

I looked at stainless steel pots......white pots.......and finally decided on a retro aqua pot

I couldn't resist getting the matching Nostalgic too!     How could I break up a set?


I've always kept the microwave in the cabinet next to the double ovens,   but the new one is so pretty I have her on the counter.

I love love love the oval glass on the door.

I separated the two with a chicken wire tiered stand that you probably remember seeing  on a different counter in kitchen a while back.

I left the bottom tier like it was.......

I did change the decor on the other two tiers though.

I shopped the house and found a white enamel scale to set my cow on......

I also found a metal dish on a white cow.......

I filled my dish with mason jar measuring spoons

I shared a post a couple of days ago showing how I freshened this counter,   so I didn't make any changes to it.     I just added a set of salt and pepper shakers and measuring cups to give this counter a touch of aqua.

I love these stacking measuring cups!

I get asked all the time if I cook in this kitchen......the answer is YES!     I can decorate on the counters since most of the cooking is done on the big island in the center.      I always keep the island clean of clutter so there is plenty of room for cooking.
