Retro Accessories for the Kitchen

It was absolutely gorgeous...and I knew I HAD to find that phone...and I did! I now have the same phone in my kitchen, perfectly functional and beautiful. (NOTE: Make sure your service provides pulse for a rotary phone.) That little venture led me to thinking, in this age of "re-loving" could I use accessories to make my kitchen pop???

I've started my hunt...and so far I've found some great pieces at Gratitude Vintage. (Check back for upcoming blogs on my finds). Finding Le Creuset cookware was exciting, especially ones that were practically unused.

The fact that the company's products have been around so long speaks to its quality. Coincidentally, they happen to be orange (the same color as the phone) and I can't wait to put them on display and to use them.
