My favorite era EVER is the 1950’s. Mostly because I love the design style, but also because I heard so much about that time from my great-grandpa.
My great-grandpa Ellis worked for General Electric, and he claims he was one of the brains behind colored appliances. This photo is my great-aunt Kathy, pulling some homemade croissants out of their new yellow-gold double oven for a GE product ad. The pearl necklace, half apron, full-skirted dress… doesn’t it make you want to step in and bake along with her?
Today on Curbly I have a post where I tried to sync my baking vibes with my family history, and I made a modern cooling rack out of a cutting board. I really like it; it is much easier to use for my cookie batches, bread, etc. than my big wire cooling rack. And it is prettier too.
