Some Vintage Finds and September's Giveaway

I found a new thrift store in the area.  My sister said the prices were awful for the furniture but I might find some deals on dishes and kitchen ware.  I am happy to report that I did.

I bought this old tin cake carrier for $15.  It's a great addition to the display above the cupboards in my kitchen.

These 2 flower frogs were $7 for both.  I had to explain to the salesclerk what they were ;)

Teacups $6 each

I just love the 3 little legs.


Two lovely little Pyrex mixing bowls.  It appears to me that the middle size is missing but neither are terribly large.  Below I show the small one sitting on a clear glass so you have a better idea of the relative size.  They are in good condition and were only $5.  Nice, eh?

The best news...these bowls will be part of September's giveaway.  As always, if you are a follower of either or both of my blogs, you get one entry.  If you leave a comment on either blog, you will get a second entry.  I will add more things as the month goes on and the theme this month is collecting for the kitchen.  Good luck...
