In addition to the boxes of old magazines I keep and store, I have a half-dozen binders of my favorite article clippings that I've saved too. I love flipping through them – it's kind of like reading the world's perfect magazine, where every article and photo is handpicked to your taste. One of my longtime favorite clips came from Country Living mag courtesy of my mom – it's a kitchen decorated from top to toe in vintage pink appliances and accessories. I think of it every time I see an ad for Elmira's retro refrigerators (oh, if I had my way – and a lot of money – we'd have a fat, mint green fridge in a second) – and I'm pretty sure if I ever spotted vintage Western Holly appliances (like the pink kitchen's owner, Lynette Lewis), I wouldn't be able to resist.
Isn't it – and there is no other word I could use here – swell?
