Vintage Thingies Thursday: MY Kitchen

Finally have another Vintage Thingies Thursday to share with you!

I don't know how vintage this particular item is, but it is definitely a vintage concept.

I stumbled across it at a local thrift store.  At first all that I saw was "Virginia" so I assumed it was yet another Virginia state memorabilia piece.  I had to double check and upon un-burying it, I saw that it wasn't a Virginia state item, but my name clearly stating who was the queen cook in the kitchen.  I know it's a tad on the ugly side, but it's vintage-esque and mine!

The lovely cashier sold it to me for all the change in my car...$0.87!  I mean, how many more Virginia's were going to come along looking for a kitchen plaque?  It's placed on my wall next to my stove and I just love it!  I don't have any personalized Virginia items so it's quite special.  Thanks for stopping by my VTT post!

Woo-hoo! Gotta love name thingies! They go in waves according to the hot name of the day so makes you know you were hot at some time!

Yeah I would have bought it too if it had my name on it!

I would have bought that too if my name was on it! Great find and now it has a brand new place to call home.

You had to buy it! Thanks for the chuckle-loved the 87 cents!

Looks 1970s to me!

I have a couple of personalized kitchen things. One was made to order and the other doesn't spell my name quite right. I think it is fun to look at the name stuff in the stores. I don't see my name anymore, and there are some names I have never even heard of.

How cool is that? What a sweet find, aren't they the best?
My grandmother had a bunch of those trivets and she painted over some of them. I think I still have them in a box somewhere (we moved about a year ago and we're still not unpacked!)

Wow, that's really awesome, and I think it was meant to be! Show that trivet off with pride, because you have a beautiful name!
Happy VTT!

I think your plaque is perfect for you. You do not see many things with your name on it either. Glad you found it. One thing for sure, I will never find mine on anything like this. Happy you shared and visited me today.

Definitely from the 79s, I remember someone's mom having one.

Susan December 3, 2009 at 7:03 PM  

Definitely a good find. A very popular item in the 1970's.
Happy VTT!

Vintage treasures mean even more when a fun story is attached!

Angela December 3, 2009 at 7:57 PM  

Hey Virginia!

I live in West Virginia! lol I would have bought it too if it had my name on it! My daughter's middle name is Hope. I have been finding lots of things with her name on it. If it's cute I have to buy it! I just bought a cute Hope with a Christmas scene on it today!

Debbie December 3, 2009 at 8:59 PM  

What a fun find. I have been told that vintage is anything older than 20 years so I bet your plaque qualifies!

The cashier was a real sweetie..I love the little hanging. It's really cute. Happy VTT..have a lovely weekend.

Coloradolady December 3, 2009 at 9:10 PM  

My grandmother had one almost exactly like this, hers said Emily....how fun to find a vintage piece with your name on it! Happy VTT and have a great weekend.

Teresa December 3, 2009 at 10:05 PM  

I used to have one of those with my name on it. My grandmother had given it to me. I am not sure what happened to it though. I used it as a trivet. YOur's is very pretty and how can you resist something with your name on it. My son is also named Evan. good choice!

Vonlipi December 4, 2009 at 4:25 AM  

What a nice find !Whether it's on the ugly side or not...It's all relative. It's all in the eye of the beholder and that is what is so fun about vintage!

Man I would take a plaque with my name any day!
