Vintage Toy Baking Center and Tablescape

 HELLO EVERYONE! In the midst of organizing....I found a little time to redo our kitchen.

From Christmas to something a little cheery. 
It is hard putting everything away that is Christmas related and still feel happy...when everything looks bare.
So I decided to gather up all my little vintage play stoves and toy baking supplies and make a vintage toy baking center of sorts.
 From little kitchen hutches and toy stoves, to baking pans and little rolling pins....it seems there should be some baking going on!
 I sort of tuck the little muffin pans here and there in little vintage wood containers...
 My collection of toy stoves are tucked into shelves, on top of hoosiers and dish cabinets....and onto our refrigerator which you will see below...
 Vintage napkin rings hold my red checked napkins....and the sweet little white plates are from Pier One. My wonderful sister in law Karlene always gives me the most wonderful Christmas gifts that find their way on my table.
And the red cake plate...she gave me that too...

Oh and have I mentioned...we live on a real farm, with hundreds of chickens, several milk cows, geese, turkeys, peacocks (the kids gave my husband the peacocks for Christmas!)....
so there are always a few feathers around...and in egg cartons.
Joining in with these wonderful parties!

Oh, what a delightful collection of toy stoves! I wish I still had the little pink one I got the Christmas I was three. My parents DO have the black one my dad had when he was a little boy. It even has an electric plug (which we wouldn't dare plug in nowadays!). Your red and white table is SO cheery. I have eyed those wonderful doily-plates at Pier 1, but so far have resisted temptation!

Debbie....I never knew that you had so many different toy stoves! Oh, I am a bit envious!
BTW, I had a time finding where to leave a comment. The blue type on the red bar is kinda hard to see...I wonder if anyone else is having that problem???

What adorable child size kitchen decor! I love how the red & white goes from the Christmas Season right into Valentine's Day!!! I married a farm boy, turned Military Career Man...so, yes, I've seen those "real" eggs with their "natural decor" many times!!! There is nothing that compares with a truly fresh egg!!! Lucky lady!
P.S. Visiting from Susan's!

Oh, I love all your little baking stuff. Very vintage, red, and cute.
Love the plates from Pier 1. I wanted some of those.

This is all such fun, and I love that you find ways to use all your treasures. Yours is exactly what a farm kitchen should look like.

Debbie, this post is just delightful. I love your toy stove and that cute little hutch and armoire, and all the adorable baking utensils. Such a fun collection and such a fun table too. I love anything with checks. Have a good weekend. laurie

Oh how I love your kitchen. I have one of the little stoves and you have inspired me to find some small baking accessories. I have just a few. My hens are not laying right now. I started some extra light in the coop at night now hoping to spur them on.
