Lost your Kitchen Britches? I found them just in time for shower present season

Kitchen Britches have been around since the 1940s, but I didn’t know they existed until I found a pair in a thrift store last month. Judging by the pinned-on poem, I’m guessing they must have been made for housewarming and shower gifts.


Here’s a look!

Placesettings: the luck of the stylish


It’s my lucky day!

I don’t think there’s much Irish in either BluesRay or me, but we’re celebrating St Patrick’s Day anyway.


The table has a vintage white cotton damask cloth to start, topped with a wonderful Startex print of lucky charms.

The tag says it’s a kitchen towel.

But am I using it that way? Heck, no!
