I have completed my Kitchenalia wall [collection of red vintage cooking utensils]

I’ve mentioned in an earlier blog a quirky habit of mine… collecting antique (or they could be better described as ‘vintage’), red cooking utensils.

I had been talking up the great finds I had made over the Christmas break, and have found it necessary to share with you the finished product.

How do you know when you have finished collecting something? Quite simply, when you run out of wall space in the kitchen! I am very happy with the variety I was able to find. There are some rather unique pieces in the collection.

Ta Da…. here it is!

Red Kitchen Utensils antique collect collector vintage

Who needs crystal animals when you can collect red, antique cooking utensils?

There are a lot of Kitchen utensils (more than 4000…) and they have some very strange names, and purposes (and my husband is very concerned about this).

He is concerned because about 2 years ago I started collecting red antique kitchen utensils to hang on our kitchen wall. It started off very casually at first, however I did hear the words ‘becoming an obsession’ muttered by my husband yesterday in an antique store when I was purchasing my 17th item (If only he knew there are around 3950 more out there according to Scullery Made!).
