Nostalgia played a major role in my obsession with this house. There was something here when we walked in for that fateful Open House that reminded me of my Grandma’s house & I was overwhelmed by a need to live here. At that time, I had only seen the living room & dining room. When we then walked into the kitchen, I knew it was meant to be! This might sound funny, considering the project that I am most looking forward to is gutting the kitchen & making it my own, however…remember…this IS NOT my Grandma’s house, it just has a similar feel to me. The kitchen was once state of the art…in 1960. The appliances are professional grade…like Julia Child. In her prime & almost up until the end she was amazing…but likely in that last year, no one wanted her cooking 5 course meals!
Our refrigerator was born the same year that we were…and I was very sad to admit that she was really past her prime! Occasionally the freezer side of her would defrost & we’d find a puddle at the base…and the fridge side, well it kept things “cool” but I’d say the temperature at its coldest ranged between 43-45 degrees. Definitely NOT the ideal temperature for a fridge! Luckily, the top shelf stayed cold (sometimes colder than the freezer) and A’s milk never soured…but her cheese sticks were certainly not as cold as they should have been!

RIP old fridge, there’s a new lady in our life!
Welcome to the family Miss BI-48S! We hope you have as long a life as your predecessor!
While I loved opening the old fridge & thinking of Grandma’s house, I love opening the new one & eating cold, safe food more!
