Do you ever have one of those days where you really don't have anything to do? Let me rephrase that. You don't have anything that you have to do. The laundry is done, this house is (somewhat) clean, and you are the only one home? I have been having that type of day. Don't be jealous, readers. This happens once in a blue moon.
I found these old cookbooks at St. Vincents yesterday. Maddie and I still have our plan to make something once a week out of one of the cookbooks that we bring home. But we are still experiencing abnormal summer like weather here so it makes it hard for me to get in the kitchen and bake. I love to cook and bake but only when the weather makes it hard to go outside and do anything else.
I also got this cute set of vintage cards. They are for when someone is sick, you send them a different card every day of the week. Inside are puzzles and corny 1960's jokes.
I admit it. I am a vintage jar junkie. I have them lined up in my kitchen and they hold sugar, cookies, drink mixes, whatever.
This is the first chenille baby blanket that I have found that was both reasonably priced and in excellent condition. This may or may not make it into my baby box for Sister.
Another McCoy pot for my collection. I picked this up at the same sale as the jar and blanket. It was in the laundry room. You never know where you will find treasures at estate sales.
There you have it. Some of my exciting finds from the last few days. I have slowly been making my way back into the thrifts since the garage sales have been so bad and end of season-ish. Still no good Pyrex, though. Unless you like dishwashered and overpriced. Then you may just get lucky!
Sister Hanna Update: Thanks to all of you who sent Hanna get well wishes! She does have a minor concussion and was ordered to basically do nothing that requires her brain to work. No reading, watching TV, or teaching. She lasted for one whole day. I'm so proud of her.
Linking up over at Vintage Thingie Thursdays. See you there!
Until next time...
