Hello again everyone! I am happy to say that I have finally finished (the seemingly never-ever-ever ending) first semester of my senior year in college. This also means I have survived the toughest bulk of my coursework. So I can finally relax. And fold my laundry. And blog.
Today I had some time to run some errands, mail all my Christmas cards, and I happened to stop off at the local antique mall. What can I say? It was on the way. How can you not stop?
I found this lovely Christmas tablecloth that I think is adorable with all the bows. I also can't argue with the timing with Christmas right around the corner. I also picked up these two books. The "Home Folks" one is a school geography book from the 30's with some amazing photos with project potential (given the destroyed spine on the book).
The other is an accounting textbook dated 1878. Have I mentioned before that I am an accounting major? I have a "thing" for collecting vintage items related to this profession.
The rest of this post is sort of a highlight reel of the some of the items I had found recently and photographed. Sadly, there were many other amazing finds that I failed to photograph. This is at least a little bit of them though.
I had found the Pyrex chip and dip set in the box at a goodwill along with the opal bread pan and Fire King jadeite mixing bowl. Jadeite at a thrift store! I was super tickled about that one.
I also found the complete Daisy bakeware set! This was quite exciting for me since this is my first lasagna pan.
I also had some great luck with finding linens including this amazing dish towel.
I also found a couple other towels as well as two floral themed tablecloths.
I had picked up this Pyrex twin serving piece at a flea market in late summer.
Finally...last but certainly not least, at the same flea market I found the two casseroles needed to complete my Pyrex Pink Amish Butterprint set!
As always, thank you for reading everyone! Hopefully I can get back into the swing of things and start updating on some of my other recent finds. Happy thrifting everyone!
