Stuff comes into our lives and stuff goes but some great stuff remains useful for a long long time.
Today I share with you some photographs of things that have been used in my mothers kitchen for as long as I can remember. Don’t you just love the items like this in your home, the ones that aren’t anything special but are just so useful and long wearing that they have realised their value over and over and over.
Top Left: Dry Ingredient Sifter ~ I think my mum has had this item for the entire 51 years of marriage.
Middle: Airing Rack ~ I know that she has used the same ones for at least as long as I can remember (40years+).
Top Right: Orange Canister ~ These have been around since the big kitchen renovation in the mid seventies.
Bottom Left: Spotted Jug ~ I remember using this when the milk was delivered in billy cans. Mum also still has some of the lace beaded doilies that we draped over the top (probably to keep the flies out when it sat on the table).
Bottom Right: Icing piping syringe ~ I think this item has been around at least since the eighties but the poor old thing is starting to fall appart. Who knows how many birthday cakes it has decorated in its time. Here it is decorating Mum’s great-grandson’s 5th birthday cake.
