I love old things…antiques…shabby chic stuff and yes I love the lodge look too. I have a hodgepodge of everything in my little house on wheels. I think old things make your home warm and inviting and most of it is just darn cute to decorate with!
I’ve always been into old kitchen stuff. When we were in our stick house I use to collect Hull’s Brown Drip dishes…..loved it in our lodge decor home. I don’t have them any more since we are in the 5th wheel with them being so heavy but I do still look for stuff to add in here to give it that old world charm. My latest find is a jadeite (jadite) flour and sugar shakers.
Jadeite or also known as jadite was produced during the 1920’s and ‘30s by Jeannette Glass Company, Anchor Hocking-Fire King; it was used widely in restaurants. There is nothing fancy about it but I love jadite’s soft green color and its simplicity. If you’re going to collect it you’re going to need a fairly good size pocket book even if it’s just a pair of shakers.
Back to my find……I found my flour and sugar shakers online at a place called Memories General Store
that is out of Tennessee. Are they old? No…they are reproductions…do I care? No not a bit! Instead of paying $50 and up for the set I paid $9.95 a piece plus shipping. I have the old world look at a better price and I won’t freak out when someone picks them up to use them! Even if they were the old ones I would still be using them…..what’s the point of having something if you’re not going to enjoy it?
If you like the old world charm check out Memories General Store online or their facebook
page. They have a little bit of everything and tell Cody that Lana sent ya!
Next on the list is the salt and pepper shakers to match then my range set will be complete!
