Fall has arrived in the great Northeast, and the windy, blustery weather makes us want to do one thing: hole up in the kitchen and cook. Kate’s more of a hearty meal maker while Mack throws herself into some of the best pies you’ve ever tasted (she’s got an award and everything). You can see why they work so well together. So consider this your official excuse to make that kitchen of yours the coziest and kick assiest (that’s a word, look it up) kitchen around. Nobody can complain about that with their mouth full.
Vintage Red and White Enamel Top Kitchen Work Table with Chrome Legs by EmbellishOnBroadway. $195 plus shipping. What better table to roll pie dough out on than this amazing vintage doll? The red, the white, the chrome…she’s a real beaut, and she deserves a place of honor in your kitchen. Roll up your sleeves, toss on an apron, fix yourself a cocktail (it is vintage 1940’s, after all), and whip up something delish.
Josephine Apron II by BDSA. $45. Wow the hubby or your dinner guests by rocking this gorgeous apron. Sure, you might just be making pigs in a blanket, but they’ll totally be more impressive when you look like you know what you’re doing. This beautiful layered apron with sweet button accents will still be beautiful when it’s covered with flour, and that’s a promise.
Kitchen Baking Dream Machine Sunbeam Mixer by Annrocksvintage. $35. Kate’s Gram had one of these mixers, and it not only withstood busy life on a farm (and innumerable birthday cakes, muffins, mashed potatoes…the list could go on forever) and you know what? It’s still going strong. This is easily the coolest mixer you’ll ever find, complete with a numbered dial to give you the perfect whipped cream, so you can keep you’re Kitchen Aid…I’ll take the Sunbeam, thanks.
Rooster Kitchen Wall Art by frivoloustendencies. $98. Come on, we’re Meatbagz-you didn’t really think you’d escape without some sort of animal, did you? True story: Mack once had a rooster named Big Blue. He was a bastard and attacked her every time she walked out the door, even when she was trying to feed him. Things didn’t end well for him (or for Mack’s now scarred legs), but ever since whenever any of her friends come across a cool rooster in any shape or form (aside from the living kind) they get it for her. So. Christmas is comin’. That’s all I’m going to say.
