Update: This post was my Good Stuff on SongBirdTiff's blog, here!
Can you see the allure? I got this shot on a day when it was pouring rain, and I had to make a trip in to the Salvation Army to pick up the other two blue chairs I had bought two days before. Of course, I found a book, a record, and a pyrex lid while I was in there (with two not-so-well-behaved kids - very embarrassing). So now, instead of curling up with a good book in front of the fireplace on a rainy day, I'm out thrifting...sigh. But check out some of my new finds!
Mom and Dad gave me the lower dish a few years back, along with some others in the same vein. Said they'd used them as a young married couple (circa 1964). Now, I've found others in the shops, like the tiny one above, so I'm expanding my collection. Does anyone know if these have a name?
At a crazy estate sale, on another rainy day. Had to wait outside, in the cold, with about 20 other folks, just to see what was in there. There was lots of grumbling, but very few people left. They had the coolest Danish Modern dining room set, way to expensive for me. I snagged this funky-cool sewing box, complete with contents.
Bunch of old spools of thread, buttons,
snaps, hooks, give-away advertising rulers, typewriter ribbon, needle threaders, etc.
And then there was this baby:
An aqua blue Hoover Dart for ten bucks - and it works!
Pretty dresser scarves and a hankie. One dresser scarf is embroidered with these darling little fawns:
A whole stack of vintage cookbooks and booklets - these are just three:
And this gorgeous Georges Briard warming tray, in its original box, apparently never used!
