Well, this antiquing and thrifting adventure weekend certainly packed a punch! Twelve of them, even...
Yup, in a trip down my beloved Route 30, I had a veritable carnival ride of goodies. Like this lovely blue Indiana Glass carnival punch bowl in blue... complete with the original cups... hooks... and even a ladle!... All of it came as a set from the L&L Fleatique in Adamsburg. How I do love that place!
I can just see a nice sherbety beverage in there, or perhaps a mulled cider in fall! Care for a sip?
My other favorite thing of the day was this beautiful Victorian photo album cover...
The pages and binding, unfortunately, are long-gone... but the celluloid cover is in just amazing condition. Back and front are intact. I think I'll just display it as-is.
It came from Graham's Antique Mall in Ligonier. I was carrying it around the booths and radiating unbridled joy, I suppose, since an older lady smiled at me and commented, "Ohhh, somebody's found something they love."
Is it that obvious? Erm... yes. Yes, it is. :)
Then my other-other favorite thing of the day (and will probably be a fave of my fellow Pyrexics, too) is this nifty Pyrex holly and pine mixing bowl I found at the Salvation Army...
...In an orange-red, I think I'll fill this with goodies for my friend Scoobie's mom... She loves red, and can certainly use the bowl. I can hear her oohing and ahhing now! I've never seen this pattern before-- and I see a lot of Pyrex at the thrifts. So that was exciting.
I also got this cool 1940s Homer Laughlin mixing bowl in a pattern that's called Orange Tree...
I liked it because it reminds me of William Morris Tree-of-Life inspired wallpapers. It's a very small bowl-- perhaps only six inches across. It was a whopping $0.99!
And it was at a Salvation Army I found this nice purple vintage hanky...
And a Trixie Belden for $0.49! T'is the season for Trixie Beldens it seems. I wonder why we're spotting her all of a sudden like this?
Lastly-- and this is the thing that will hopefully end up being a present for you all, as well-- I found us some fun vintage cookbooks to look at in future posts! (See, I think of you folks when I go out...)
Well, it's time for me to put the lid back on the Treasure Box for another week! Thanks for joining me-- as always. I enjoy hearing from you all immensely.
If you didn't get a chance to see the "Bag of Old Papers" post from Sunday, that'll be tucked away here.
And otherwise-- hope you have spring in your step, and in your gardens, too!
