Last week my treasure hunting created a mystery with the large vintage shortening bin I picked up at a garage sale. And Andrea was super sweet in featuring it this week! Thank you so much for the feature, Andrea!
Well my mystery is no closer to being solved, but this week you might think I was becoming a tin collector!
Here’s what came home with me from a little thrifting excursion
That’s right. A vintage Empress jam can, c. 1940s-50s! That’s the tin collecting part, but I’m not actually ‘collecting’ tins… not yet, anyway ;-)
And this great little piece of vintage luggage. Love the old cardboard luggage!
The glass at the bottom of the old bottle is super thick, and poured on an angle.
I don’t know what it was used for, but I thought it was kind of cool. And I liked this wine carafe because of its shape. Most the ones you find, are round from bottom to top.
So these are my treasure finds this week! A little vintage and a lot of loooove!
When I bought the jam tin, the cashier asked me what I planned to do with it. I told her it might hold pens and pencils on my desk! What would you do with it?
Today I’m heading back over to the Junkin Joe Linky Party, ’cause the last one was just way too much fun! I hope you pop over and check out all the other vintage treasures, projects and thrifty finds!
And here’s a special shout out toAndrea at The Cottage Market for hosting! Thank you, Andrea!!!
This week coming up is going to be a busy one for me. I’ll be getting myself organized to head over to idsWEST in Vancouver where I’ll be joining the DLBwest blogging gang for another blogging gala of fun! And I will be making a quick little ‘vintage’ stop along the way! Watch for that post next Friday to find out why!
Thank you for stopping by!
