Way-back Wednesday

I recently purchased some Early Bird fabric by Cosmo Cricket.  It is pure retro goodness.

These fabrics just beg to become oven mitts.  Or toaster cozies.  Or aprons.  Heck, they begged to come home with me.  And you know what a kind person I am.  I could not say no.  But I have to admit that they really don't match my decor.  Or my pots and pans for that matter.  So a few changes may be in order.

I obviously need one of these from le creuset:  

And one of these wouldn't hurt either:

And maybe this to put them in:

These retro blues and greens are lovely.  Who ever thought I would actually want a fridge to be any color but white or stainless steel?  Especially after growing up with these:

I'd ask my mother what the heck she was thinking but I don't believe that she actually picked out our avocado green stove and fridge (and dishwasher, ugh!).  They came with the house.  Those and the "awesome" mirrored wall with gold cracks painted on the mirrors.  You can't appreciate its full beauty without actually seeing it in all its glory.  Don't worry, I don't have a picture.

Reminds me of a house we moved into, the walls were orange and brown, one of the bedrooms was purple, and had a "lovely" chocolate brown bathroom suite

I remember when those appliances were new, and everyone wanted one of the 'gorgeous' colors that were available for the kitchen - avocado green, brown, yellow and orange. I still have my orange mixer!

My grandma had a pink stove. Oh, what I wouldn't give to have it now!

The sad thing is that those colors will someday be looked upon much as the avacado, coppertone and harvest gold are today.

The fabrics are fabulous.
