Inspire me! Vintage chef light switch

We’re so excited to see our Saucy Chef collection come to life.

The thought occurred to me, though, that we should pause a minute and remember what it was that inspired the whole thing.

Our mother cooked from many different kitchens over the years of her life

(a dude ranch, a cow camp, small parsonages, a log mountain home, a cozy house in a farm town)

and this chef has been on many, many of those kitchen walls.

She made a little bit stretch, tried new things, taught us both to cook and never leave dishes until the next day.

Now our dad is the chief cook in that kitchen and the chef is still there keeping an eye on things. If he could talk, we’re sure he’d say something like, “I sure like salty beans!” and then he’d laugh ’til he needed to wipe his eyes.
