Vintage Vegetable Mania

For whatever reason the 1950s was an era that not only included crinolines, rock and roll, and lunch counters, but also vegetable mania. Kitchen decorators from coast to coast loved adorning their walls, counters, cabinets, and clothes with anthropomorphic and non-anthropomorphic veggies!

In my search for veggie mania I ran across some amazing examples from Etsy and threw a couple in from my own mid-century kitchen.
