Kitchen Art

There are some things, stained as they may be, that just belong in the farm kitchen, hanging on the wall. This old flour sack was found among a 92 year old woman's things, after she passed away, and we helped place her possessions in new places. I know, it looks dirty and faded, but it has found a new home in my kitchen.

This collection of antique egg beaters has also found a place on the wall in my kitchen. (This is about one half of them.) The collection started with a beater from Mama, then one from a great aunt, and it grew from there, with many purchased on eBay. Several were beaters I had never seen, such as the ones made to fit over bowls. I was never lucky enough to buy one with its bowl.

While adding to collections, I have learned one shouldn't buy something, regardless of its condition, just because it's available; wait until an article that is in good condition becomes available. You'll be happier with it.

Smiles, Charlotte


  1. I think your kitchen must be such a warm, welcoming place Charlotte. I love all of those things - love imagining the hands that held and used them at one time.

  2. I like what Linda said about the hands that held and used the old mixers. Have you used any of them? And, you do have a great country kitchen!

  3. I love that old flour sack! I just have one old egg beater -one with the-red handle, like the one in your picture.
    I just LOVE old things! (Hubby says that's why I married him.) ;)

  4. Love the flour sack and your collection. I also collect old kitchen utensils. I just love everything vintage that has to do with the kitchen.

  5. I love the flour sack, Charlotte... I have an old feed sack hanging in my living room and I love it.
    The egg beater collection is wonderful! I have a small collection of rolling pins started... if I'm not careful, I'll buy one every time I'm around a flea market! *grin*

  6. I love the flour sack. I also like the hand mixer with the red handle too.
    I hope all has been well for you on the farm.
