This week for Vintage Thingie Thursday, I'd like to introduce you to the home of Davinities! My kitchen.
Now before you start to question how vintage my kitchen can be, my Keurig Brewer sits on top of the microwave that's plugged in with an adapter because there are no three-prong outlets in our 1950s kitchen!
It's a 1950s era house and with the exception of the oven and garbage disposal, the built-in appliances, plumbing and tile are all original. David's ex repainted the cupboard doors and added the matching paint on the walls, but the pink tiles were originally there.
The electric stove was state-of-the-art at the time the house was built, now it's a sweet, and still used, antique!
The buttons on the back wall for the stove are labeled to let you know to which burner they correspond. The temperatures are a little challenging to control. Before I came to Toledo, I used a very controllable Jenn-Air, so the vintage stove took some getting used to, but now I don't even think about it. I just know that the setting I use most starts on 2, then turns down to three and goes up and down a few times to cook a steak or heat a can of soup.
In all of the short-comings of not having a lot of the modern touches, like a dishwasher, it makes up for it with its charm.
As long as I can plug in my Keurig Maker, all is good!
