Today I'm sharing a few recent vintage finds. I love looking for old treasures at thrift stores but I've found a lot of my vintage treasures at my late mother-in-law's house. She saved everything and used a lot of things even though they were old fashioned.
This cute glass jar was in her kitchen cupboard and I remember seeing it used for storing brown sugar. It's about 5 1/2 inches tall. The rim of the top and the lid are both chipped badly. She had red tape around the top of the jar to 'repair' it. I guess she liked it and didn't want to toss it. I just love the cute lambs, bunnies and ducks along with the red picket fence around this jar, don't you?
I put it to good use recently filling it with Peeps. ;)
Have a Peep.
I have a penchant for little creamers so when I saw this one at my favourite antique store in Moncton recently, I had to buy it. Isn't it sweet? I can picture some sweet pansies or forget-me-nots or lily of the valley in this when they start blooming, can't you?
Marked USA #1 on the bottom.
In March we stopped at Value Village thrift store and I always head for the china department to look for something. On this trip I found 2 small white ironstone tea leaf patterned platters. I think I paid $3.00 for each one.
I have several pieces of this type of china including a large teapot, serving platter and biscuit jar that were my grandparents. You can see them in the photo below on the top shelf.
One had this mark on the bottom but the other didn't.
I love the serviceability of this old ironstone china.
Have you found any treasures lately?
