Some pictures of my kitchen

I had mentioned that my kitchen is decorated with gingerbread and some 1940's kitchen things. I've had a few people request that I share some pictures so here they are. The bakers rack is where the majority of my gingerbread people are displayed.

One of my favorite 1940's piece is my green bread box from England. I searched high and low for it and when I found it on eBay, I snatched it up quick! It was shipped to me straight from England.
I love antique ball mason jars as well. I am very picky about size and condition. I will only buy jars that have the original zinc lid with the milk glass still attached. I have been using my mason jars as canisters for several years now. I don't recommend it if you are not one to bake. They do not keep the food fresh over long periods of time. I cook and bake a lot so the food in these jars is never there very long. Ü
This green table was given to me by a friend. I'm not sure how old it is but it seems to match OK and I love it!
