This I got a couple of weeks ago at a new antique store in a town close to me. It's an old crock type jar for marmalade. I added the flowers for a pop of color. I love vintage containers with the old labels.
I have about 4 or 5 different chicken salt and pepper shakers. This set I got last year on my senior trip in Branson in a little antique store.
Yes I have a hope chest don't judge! I secretly wish I lived in the 1800's so I have a dowry :) This one has kind of a cool story along with it this guy bought it new for his fiancé in 1940. He then went and served in WWII. He bought it for her so she had a hope chest. There is an engraving inside with her name on it which is really cool to know the history of an object.
Wednesday my friend and I went to a thrift shop looking for some furniture for her apartment and I found these things along with a cookbook pictured below.
This is one of the weirdest things I've found. It is a bright orange ashtray shaped like a bathtub. I don't use it as an ashtray but instead a coin dish or to hold bobby pins.
A chicken print that I got at an auction.
I LOVE OLD BOOKS. Well I love books in general but old books and cookbooks are even more cool. I plan on having a library in my future house and I have to start collecting books now. The cookbook on the left was the book I got at the thrift store it's dated 1972. Then the other two books are books that I got at garage sales this weekend. The middle book is a cowboy/western book which is pretty interesting. Then the green one on the right is a book called Listen to the Land. It is a book made by the Farm Journal about life on the farm. It has several stories and a few poem things about farming which I will probably share someday.
