Retro Kitchen by Tracy DeVore

“When I was a child and the snow fell, my mother always rushed to the kitchen and made snow ice cream and divinity fudge-egg whites, sugar and pecans, mostly. It was a lark then and I always associate divinity fudge with snowstorms.”
~ Eudora Welty

    Oh my what a great old dining room set, man can I “remember when” they were the rage, all the chrome and colorful vinyl.

  • Me, too! Our kitchen floor also looked just like that, but it was black and white instead of red and white lol. Thanks, Byron!! :)

    This reminds me of my grandmothers kitchen….she had a yellow table that my grand dad bought in 1946….it is canary yellow and has two ends that fold out….I ate many a meals at that table and I still do as it is now my table…

  • Very cool, Bill! You should take a shot of that and enter it in the current “retro fun” challenge in the That’s Entertainment group. :)

  • We had one just like this in our old kitchen back in the early 60s. Only the tabletop was dark gray and the floor was black and white tile instead of red and white. Thanks, Sweetie! :)

    Someday, someday I will have a set like this…I have even wanted the actual dinning booths that they used. Great photo!

  • I love those old booths, would be very cool to own one. Thanks for dropping by and taking the time to comment. ☺

    this is great tracy!! someones kitchen that you frequent? takes me back to my parents kitchen as a very young boy.

  • Not a kitchen I frequent. I shot this in a restored building at Kennekuk County Park in Danville, IL. There is an entire town there, all authentic moved from elsewhere, including an old grocery store and gas pump, school house, church, etc. It’s a very cool place. Thanks so much, RobertCharles, for stopping by! ☺
