Vintage Picks for Tuesday – Mid-Century Kitchen

Vintage Picks Of The Week

It’s time for our new series, Vintage Picks of the Week! We scour the internet looking for just the right piece of vintage to add to our home, and include ideas on how we think these pieces could be used.

Today’s picks are brought to you by Laurie at Recent History Vintage.

JAJ Pyrex ‘Fiesta’ casserole dish

What I Like About It: This Pyrex from England with it’s band of primary color mid century food graphics makes me weak at the knees. If that wasn’t enough, it comes from Stan and Dave way down in Sidney, Australia who have a Pyrex identification site that is pure Pyrex catnip.

How I Would Use It: As evenings finally get a little cooler, the idea of a casserole filled with late summer produce is very tempting indeed.

Mid century coffee set

What I Like About It: The clean design, the adorable lids, the serving tray, the colors

How I Would Use It: Nothing finishes a great meal like a little (decaf) coffee served from a real coffee pot.

We can do it! tea towel

What I Like About It: A sweet twist on a powerful and iconic image. 

How I Would Use It: It’s so lovely it really ought to be framed, but on the other hand, it would make drying dishes seem more like a party than a bit of household drudgery.

    I love the idea of vintage picks on your blog. Been mulling over doing something similar, but laziness usually wins out. 😉
