I recently had another birthday...sigh.
getting older...double sigh.
So this year I decided to go shopping for old things.
And I love them all!!!
My sister & I went to a "junk fest" with my birthday money and we came home with some wonderful vintage-y treasures:
A pretty metal flower box including the flowers,
thanks mom & dad!
I had been searching for some large glass containers for flour & sugar with a wide enough opening so my measuring cups would fit inside...
We found these very old, like 1930's old, coffee jars.
I spray painted the turquoise lid so I need to paint the other one.
Thanks, sister. (fist bump)
wanted needed some sort of large pot to put all of my cooking utensils in.
LOVE this gray enamel pot - it is perfect!
And look at the nifty little handle stuck to the side, I think it's for holding on to while you pour...brilliant!
I found a mini coffee jar for the hub's jaw breakers - so darn cute!
(I only have two cans of spray paint, turquoise & orange - gotta get more!)
Then I find this darling wire basket - squeal!!!
Anyone who knows me knows how much I'm in love with Pyrex - solid colors!
My heart smiled when I found this hard to find aqua colored bowl, along with its cousins, the green & pink cake rounds.
And finally - whew - I added to my collection of blue tinted Ball/Kerr/Mason jars.
I never run out of items to store in them. They each have a unique "weathered" lid - simply charming.
Finding vintage treasures that I can still use......that will never get old!
