Country Kitchens

Back in the late 70s and early 1980s, Country Living magazine came out. It was really of the Lord when it first was published. It promoted the traditional family and helped me so much to really get my family settled after Jim was healed. Well, now when I go to garage sales, I look for the early Country Living magazines and now I am starting a collection.

I want to get more back into the styles that were popular then, as this seems to be where my creativity lays. The jars … the old canning jars were so popular to use for storing dried goods in open shelves. I have a good collection of them now, as I have collected them over the years. I have the blue jars with the bale handles. The old kerosene lamps and the big crock bowls. I also collect the enamel ware when I see it at sales. Also, the big enamel ware speckled spoons. Some are the big stirring spoons and then they go smaller and smaller.

I am a dishes freak and I especially collect tea sets. Baby Girl and I will have many tea parties together as she gets a bit older. But I get this stuff for nickles and dimes. Jim would never take me to sales if I spent a lot of money. We just don’t have the money to waste on a lot of stuff. But if I see a little plate I like then I buy it for 25
