Wordless Wednesday, With a Twist


Ok, so, as a first timer, I am delighted that I immediately knew the perfect item to photograph for this week's theme of "vintage". It just so happens that the house in which I currently live is the house that Josh's grandfather built 50 years ago. As such, there are many little quirks and novelties throughout. The two that I decided to share today are certainly my favorites.




This the oven in my home. It is a white 1950 Chambers Model C. I love it (even if it took forever for me to get the hang of baking in a gas oven.)




This is one of the many original door knobs throughout my house. Though the locks don't really work, and most of the knobs take a special touch, it's these little things that always make me smile.

I would give a whole lot to have a stove like that! Oh, I love it. Absolutely beautiful, and so very classic!

We had door knobs like the yours, in my childhood home. Yes, a special touch was required, but they add such an interesting touch to a home. :)

Ok, first of all I love old doorknobs! I don't know why, it's just one of my minor obsessions ;) I would collect them if I owned a house large enough to store them all in.

Secondly, that oven is AWESOME! So cool!

Thanks so much for sharing :)

That oven is awesome! Great pictures too! My aunt's house has those old doorhands, intermingled with old latch hooks too - what an gorgeous old home!

I love those old stoves! I would like to have one in my house, but I think I'm going to go with a faux vintage, though, when I redo our kitchen.
