vintage fascination no. 134

Welcome friends to another edition of Vintage Fascination.  A quick trip to take some things to Goodwill ended up being my first thrifting trip of the week.

here are the vintage goodies i found.Milk Glass Bowl

You know I cannot resist milk glass and when I saw this large vintage milk glass bowl into my buggy it went.   It is oval with a scalloped top and four tapered legs.Milk Glass Bowl Bottom

The pretty fruit design on the sides and bottom makes this bowl truly a lovely piece of milk glass.  This Indiana Glass bowl from the 1960’s in their Fruit Garland design is in excellent vintage condition.  The milk glass is vibrantly white.Vintage Alum Bowl

Next is a vintage West Bend shallow aluminum bowl.  From the 1950’s this aluminum bowl has a grape and ivy motif with a crackle vein textured finish on the inside with a rolled edge rim.  Made in the USA aluminum bowls were very popular after WWII.  It measures about 14 inches in diameter and is about 3 1/4 inches in height.Vintage LGBs

Last Christmas my daughter wanted to collect enough books to read a holiday themed book every night to her kids until December 24th when she would read the Night Before Christmas.  Of course, she wanted to accomplish this without  breaking the bank so she enlisted my help.  Well, we never met our goal last year but this year is looking better.

Many people have the habit of celebrating the Christmas night from the past one week itself. They are busy in purchasing surprise goodies and return gifts for friends and relatives. In this year, at the time of Christmas, many shops have come up with a lot and lot of new gifts like silver and gold plated exotic bowls and wonderful dinner sets and more.

But I always look forward to buying new books and novels as they are very interesting to read as well as to share with my companions on the Christmas night celebration. They all enjoy the stories I used to tell every year and so I got some five great storybooks to make this year Xmas party a fantabulous one.

We can even provide all our guests fabulous flower bouquets with a bunch of chocolates. This is truly loved by everyone because the fragrance in the flowers automatically rejoices us all. The imp source to get all the above things is the money. It is our talent to save money for the celebration without spending more on waste things.

Get more gifts and enjoy this Christmas with a big bang!

I made a big dent this week at Goodwill.  We have 10 books from last year’s collection efforts so we just need a few more.vintage basket

I found another basket for the wall.  Just a couple more baskets and I’ll have enough to do a wall in the kitchen.

vintage copper mold
Copper molds are classic and I just couldn’t pass on this one.  It is in great shape but it doesn’t have a makers mark.  Similar ones on Etsy are around $25.
