Zachary- What did you use to get off the paint? Stripping paint can be a very frustrating process. Also, what sort of oil did you use? (Thanks in advance!)


Before & After: A Marvelous Mid-Century Modern Make-Under

Donald Harington is a local author (northern Arkansas) who wrote a fabulous novel (With) that included a character called an "in-habit". The in-habit is essentially a little piece of your soul that never is able to leave a loved place when the rest of you has had to move away.

I loved that concept. My last home, a 95+ year old Foursquare that we renovated, probably has a little in-habit of mine in it. Perhaps this kitchen will retain a little piece of you.

Buy the right thing once, and you don't have to buy it again.

I will pay for the perfect kitchen equipment. It is worth it, both in satisfaction and in eventual savings as I don't have to keep replacing the cheap stuff.

My vintage skillet (with that lovely supersmooth surface you can only get from old cast iron pans) stays on my stove at all times. We use it at nearly every meal.

(Is it just me, or does all the hanging-over-the-stovetop business in these photos look like a perfect storm of greasecatching over time? We're not frying people but our stovetop hood gets DISGUSTING if not wiped down regularly. I'd hate to be the one to keep all that clean.)

I save baking powder containers and relabel and reuse them for salt, baking soda, sugar, and flour. When I only need a bit I don't have to get out the big containers, they have a built-in level for measuring, and laid end to end in a drawer only take up a little space.

We have a Schoolhouse fixture in our kitchen. The milky glass shades are fantastic... they just glow.

We live in an old house (one outlet per bedroom!) and I desperately need to know how to convert those Home Depot fixtures to battery/LED! Just brilliant.

I have a tiny kitchen with limited storage, but I make room for a Garlic Twist. Love that thing.

I wonder why they did the "loaf"? My family's (southern) dressing recipe would work well as the layers... I might do this just to gross my sister out. She's one of those people who doesn't like the different types of food on her plate to touch each other.

My husband burned ours out kneading heavy dough... we drove it 3 hours to the nearest authorized repair center. Blown fuse. THREE BUCKS. Yes!

My first thought: Americans' kitchens are apparently just as oversized as our houses, waistlines, and carbon footprints. So many of these would be thought of as prohibitively tiny here in American homes.

Oh, amen, Faith. My vines are dying and I'm mourning them and already wondering when I should plant them for the fall harvest. They are my favorite garden snack-- and Gracie's, too. We hardly have any that make it inside the house.

Not that you need any more advice, but Caphalon's hard-adonized 12-inch Everyday Pan is 39.99 on Amazon. That'd be very useful to any college student.

Ozark black walnuts are a delicacy, and during walnut season buyers set up in town to weigh and pay you for the harvest you pick up off the ground. It's a win-win situation-- you get the ankle-spraining things off the lawn, and they get the walnuts.

Last year, we gave the honor of harvesting our yard to an unemployed couple who was hauling load after load of wanuts to the dealers to make some money.

This year, I may try cashing in myself-- but next spring, I'll be trying this in hopes of some wonderful Christmas gifts. Thanks for the tip, Faith!

I've always thought that Ichiban eggplants were beautiful enough to plant within any flowerbed. I love the purple veins running through the leaves, and matching purple flowers and then eggplants.

Florida grew me oceans of eggplants, too many to eat. Here in Arkansas, they got attacked by beetles nonstop. This year, eggplant FAIL. I'll try again next year.

My upcoming appliance purchase is vintage: a late 1940's Chambers stove (BZ model) with chrome, side lights, and the magnificient thermowell. We've had it reporcelained in black. I am breathless with anticipation.

Umm, Faith, that volunteer squash or melon doesn't look like a squash or melon to me. My guess is a wild violet.

Love the mint pot! The Kentucky Colonel is a gentleman... he doesn't spread that much in the ground, according to a local herb farm (of course, that's here, not where you live...).

Congrats on the "real" garden at last!

our Garlic Twist. I encountered one at a friend's and just had to have one. It works like magic.
