Warming back up with an electric tray by Cornwall

Looks like I let my blog "go cold" for a little while!


To say things have been busy for me would be an understatement. I'm glad to be back and posting to the Hausfrau Journal despite the pressures of everyday life. Keeping connected with all you vintage-loving friends helps me through the tough times. (Do you feel the same?)

I'm so excited to share my most recent thrift shop find with you: a vintage Cornwall electric warming tray!

My favorite part about this gadget—other than the fact that it keeps all my homemade meals warm—is its fun, playing card-like aesthetic.

(But don't expect to see a six of clubs when you turn it over...)

There's even a handy "Hot Spot" (indicated by a single red diamond) to warm my beverages and sauces, a feature that I've seen on many warming trays.

And who doesn't love the old-fashioned plugs with their equal-sized prongs. Ah, the good ol' days...

Thanks for bearing with me while I "unplugged" for a while!

    1. Thank you! I just about died when I saw it in the store. Definitely one of my top finds.

  2. That's so pretty! I just found one (in avocado) at the thrift store last night. It was half price - $2! I was excited too. I visited relatives this summer and my aunt had one. That's where I saw how handy this device is and knew I had to keep my eyes open for one.

    1. Oh, I would love to see a picture! You're right that they're incredibly handy. Having everything cooked and warm at the same time is a nearly impossible feat for complicated dinners, but this gadget takes the pressure off. By the way, $2 is an incredible price.


The Hausfrau eagerly awaits your thoughts.
