Hello Friends! It has been a few weeks since I've posted. Thanks to all of you who continue to stop by to see what I've been up to. I do appreciate it. Seems like May is a very busy month for our family as the end of the school year wraps up and we are consumed with all of the activities and events that go with that. As much as I love posting here, my Mom duties have a way of keeping me off the computer.
I have been able to get to some yard sales. The pickings have been slim, but I did manage to find a few treasures.
I bought this lovely white pottery vase at a flea market this past Sunday. It only cost me $2. It is fairly large in size in comparison to the other pottery vases I have collected. It is marked USA on the bottom. I love how these lilacs look in this vase. White has become one of my favorite colors to collect in vintage pottery - especially the matte. Not sure if that is because I haven't seen much of any other colors lately to buy or because of it's simplicity.
After the flea market we spotted a yard sale sign and of course I had to check it out. It was the second day of the sale so there wasn't much left. Sorting through a box of cookbooks I came across this vintage gem. It was 25 cents. I love it. The recipes inside are great. I am looking forward to sitting down with this book and reading it cover to cover - and then trying some of the recipes.
I love looking at the pictures in these vintage cookbooks. They give you a real history of what housewives were using in their kitchens at the time. Check out this photo.
I have a soft spot for vintage glassware - and these tug at my heart strings. They are light blue. The pattern is similar to hobnail but more like bubble wrap. Not sure of its official name. I remember my grandmother having dishes like these. I have been told that she hosted luncheons at her home for her lady friends and they enjoyed delicate salads and jellos on dishes like these.
At another yard sale I scored this great Maxwell House Thermos for $1. If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram you have probably seen this already. I love old coffee cans and coffee advertising so this is a treasure in my book. I used to collect plaid Thermos's but ended up selling the collection when I got tired of it. I don't think I will part with this one. It will be on display in my kitchen. I have never seen another like it.
Sadly, this happened this week as well.
Until next time...
