We here on Clark Street hope that you had the happiest of holidays this season! We’re gearing up to start taking baby steps towards some pretty big goals, although we made the tough decision to put off gutting and renovating the kitchen over the winter. There are simply bigger fish to fry, and the kitchen we have is perfectly usable until we’re able to complete those other tasks. In the meantime, we’re going to have a lot of fun re-imagining the space and coming up with our dream (vintage) kitchen, rather than coming up short and having to settle for good enough. Be sure to check back for renderings and floor plans!
I’ve never been much of a fan of Thanksgiving. I’m vegetarian now, which means the holiday is even less special to me, but even when I ate meat it was never a favorite holiday. Not even in my Top 5. Maybe not even in my Top 10. The biggies for me in the latter part of the year have always been Halloween, Christmas/Yule, and to a lesser extent New Year’s Eve/Day. Thanksgiving has always been kind of…meh. Oh yay, let’s slave away in a hot kitchen, watch football on tv all day, graze on food for hours, and then clean everything up. Not so much. Now that I don’t eat meat, including turkey or anything with turkey/chicken stock in it, the holiday is even less relevant for me. What’s a girl to do when the rest of the country is obsessed? Looking at vintage or vintage-y photos related to the holiday don’t hurt.
