Fabulous Finds!

Hubby and I went to a few yard sales this weekend.  OH MY!  There was amazing vintage out there.  Some was priced high and I had to pass...but some was not!

I couldn't resist this cow timer!

I saw this little "junk" box that hangs on the wall and knew I had to put my birthday collection in it while it is small enough to fit.  It's hanging in my laundry room!

This is actually from a one of my favorite little thrifts.  I've seen this in canisters and bread boxes...I didn't know there were shakers!

Another yard sale find...I'm a sucker for vintage Johnson Brothers.

AHHH!  This is so cool!

At the end of our yard sale venture we came across this house that was just unpacking boxes.  I almost jumped out of the car while it was still moving!  I spotted the above Borden Malted Milk jar right off along with a couple of Pyrex pieces I'm going to sell.  EVERYTHING was a dollar.  Unfortunately not much was out.  They let me look through the boxes that were open in the garage that they were still unpacking.  All the boxes said "Grandma's pink dishes" or "Grandma's stuff". We couldn't stay so I will never know what Grandma's pink dishes looked like!  It was pretty fun stuff...though it was pretty dirty.  I always have fun cleaning it up, I'm weird that way.

Another jar from Grandma's sale.  I added some molds and cutters.

I'm always looking for milk bottles for my Carnation crate.  Love these two!

My favorite find?  This mint condition pitcher...a non-local Goodwill that still has great prices.  $.499!

And I leave you with my pink and turquoise Pyrex collection.

I'm dying to know what Grandma's Pink Dishes look like too!

I have a single shaker that matches one of my breadboxes and canister sets. I thought the same thing when I found it. I wonder if there are shakers to all of those kind of sets?
