The other day I stumbled upon these wonderful old photos while I was researching vintage kitchens. I love seeing some of my favorite stars and celebrities cookin’ up somethin’ tasty.

Wouldn’t it be fun to taste Betty White’s cake, Lucy’s pot roast or Joan Crawford’s pie? I especially love the pics of Shirley Temple, Audrey Hepburn and Natalie Wood (didn’t realize Shirley was a leftie). And I love the old stoves.

Paul and Joanne look so “normal,” and who would have thought a former Prime Minister did her own washing up?  Hmm, Robert Mitchum can wash my dishes any time.🙂

HAPPY MONDAY!!

  1. I was surprised to see the Audrey Hepburn and I have the same white enamel salt box (with a wood lid). I feel so special!

  2. I only missed Ann Blythe. That’s what comes from spending all my teenage years babysitting – I became a late-night-movie-star expert.🙂 Toss in a few TV stars….fun! Thanks, Jama.

    1. She looks too dressed up to be seriously working in the kitchen. What do you think the pattern is on her blouse? They look kinda like flowers but also turnips🙂.

  3. That dog looks ready to eat what Billie Holiday is cooking! Natalie Wood is sooo adorable. Robert Mitchum is handsome, but nobody is better looking than Paul Newman. Just sayin’…
