Coffee's On

I love these old coffee percolators. There's just something about them.

Maybe it's the tarnished, smudgy patina

or perhaps it's these charming old glass knobs on top


that the coffee splashes up into
as it's brewing

whatever it is, I love them and my husband knows it.


That's why, when he came across these three old percolators, he brought them home to me. He is the greatest!
Have a wonderful weekend.
xo and God Bless,
Kathleen

I like them too. I also have a few of them. Just thinking about all of the tables of friends and family they have served! If they could talk...!
Hugs,

I love your old percolators. I'm collecting a few for a friend. We're arranging them on top of her china cabinet in her kitchen. I'll be sending her this link...

I love your blog, too. I'm so glad you stopped by. My "follow" button is not working (I am so not technical) but I adding you to my sidebar so I don't miss anything.

I love those too! My mom made coffee in one every morning as well as my grand-ma's and greatgrandma! I have and electrical one which I'll pull out on a special occasion but I'd rather make it on the stove top, it takes a little longer but oh so worth it. Coffeemakers are for convenience only!
