Useful things came home this week....
these look to have never been used! Anchor Hocking refrigerator dishes were a steal on 25% Off Tuesday at the thrift store. $6.75 for all three. I don't know about you, but I never seem to have a lidded container for leftovers when I need it. These will be handy!
And the remainder...things I love!
Bobbins and spools.
Another handthrown and signed pottery mug.
A pottery matchstick holder. At least that's what I intend to use it for! The long fireplace matches. Loved the color of the pottery...signed "Johnson". Johnson...you did well!
And then today's big purchase....
three lovely plates to add to my Memory Lane collection. I collect Memory Lane for 4 reasons.
1) It came to be in 1965, and 1965 was a very good year.
2) It originated in Ohio (Go Buckeyes!)
3) It's RED
4) It has ACORNS!
So yes...I do pick up the pieces when I find them. These three little plates were taped together and I was charged a mere fifty cents for all three! They're in excellent condition!
And the little spoon on top...
it's Community Silver and lovely and so petite. At first glance I thought maybe a baby spoon...but it looks like it could also be a small teaspoon. Regardless...it was a dime. A whopping .64 was my total for the Memory Lane pieces and spoon!
Another fun week of finds! I also paid it forward and sent home a wonderfully mismatched, yet useful, set of Pyrex mixing bowls home with daughter! She was thrilled to have an entire set. And I liked spreading the thrifty love straight from my kitchen cabinets! Frees up some space! ;o)
