In the Kitchen With Dinah

In the Kitchen With Dinah

I found this image in a box of slides I purchased at a thrift store. All I know about it is that the slide mount says "Dinah - Kitchen". I don't have a date or a location but it's a wonderful slice of mid-century Americana. View full size.

Am I the only one

singing right now? Someone's in the kitchen with ...

Mom?

Dinah looks a LOT like my mom did at this age. They would be close to the same age as well.

Dinah's dishes

Dinah has a set of iconic Fiestaware or one of its numerous knock-offs. I wonder if the grocery bag is being used as a kitchen waste basket. Ours always were, with the top rolled back. One for paper, one for wet stuff. Electric fry pan is a nice touch, and now I also want some cheese. Can't figure out the copper thing under the window at the right edge, though; waxed paper dispenser? Crocheted hot plate pad or oven mitt on it, maybe. We also see the downside of varnished wood for under-sink cabinets.

Others will chime in going gaga over the glasses, but I want to commend her for being properly lipsticked for kitchen chores, although the clothes and makeup probably indicate this was right after a dinner party.

Great find! I'm envious.
