We hit the thrifts on Saturday. I hadn't been thrift shopping much lately, but it was a beautiful day for a drive and I had a pocketful of cash. That healthcare flexible spending account comes in handy.
I found a large Pyrex casserole. The 1970s wasn't my favorite period for Pyrex, but that warm butterscotch color just seemed right to me.
A few hanks of vintage fabric found their way home with me too. I'm crushing on that green one in particular.
There was a Royal Haeger tall vase that caught my eye.
It's just waiting for a colorful bouquet or some fall foliage.
And I came upon a couple of dove gray Woodfield snack sets by Steubenville Pottery. These were popular in the 1940s-50s.
Steubenville closed in 1959, I believe.
I also snagged a large serving bowl in the salmon color. This will have some McIntosh apples in it soon.
A Hall au gratin baking dish. Hard to tell from the photo, but it's a pretty, dark amber color. I already have a couple like this, one gray, one green. They're nice for individual baked casseroles. I think they're still making this kind of restaurant ware.
But that green and white crocheted piece it's sitting on? That brings us to our what the heck? moment of the day.
See what I mean?
Grandma was apparently busy hooking something while Gramps was out fishing with the boys. A gadget cozy? A rocket warmer? A dingaling doily?
I dunno, you tell me. Whatever it is, it's worth the buck I paid in entertainment value alone!
