Vintage Kitchen Tools and Dishes

I love vintage dishes and kitchenware. 

On the weekends I can often be found in a thrift store poking through the shelves to find vintage treasures to use as props for our photography for the site.

Vintage Cookbooks

Every once and a while you can find a good cookbook with Vintage Recipes on Amazon. I don’t have any recommendations as I haven’t bought any as I prefer the handwritten recipes that you see on our site.

You can always find treasures on sites that sell used items such as Vintage Cookbooks on eBay and Vintage Cookbooks on Etsy

Tea Cakes


  • 1½ cups sugar
  • 1 cup butter
  • 4 cups flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 level teaspoon soda
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • pinch of salt


  1. Cream butter, add sugar gradually. Add one egg at a time then slowly add the other ingredients.
  2. The vanilla is last.
  3. Roll very thin and do not use any more flour than called for, if possible.
  4. Bake on an ungreased cooky tin in a moderately hot oven. (Back in those days a wood stove was used so no temperature was listed.)
