I think I lugged home some pretty decent stuff. I had to cut my shopping day short this week, though. I had an unfortunate incident on the bus at the start of my trip which resulted in me smacking my head against the ceiling of the bus as I sat down at full force - OUCH! I really knocked my noggin' around, dizzy, nauseous, didn't really know what was going on... I know this may sound dramatic, but the force was so hard, I thought I might have a concussion. Well, here I am blogging today. My head is still feeling knocked around & I don't feel all there. Totally whacked. All my Pyrex finds were from last weekend, except the Golden Grapes 441. 

Here are all my Pyrex friends! A Friendship underplate, a pink Gooseberry Bake Serve & Store #471.. just need the #473 & my collection is complete!, the usual Butterprint 401 & 403 & the 441 Golden Grapes. 





Some beautiful Federal flower mugs & a set of 2 poodle shot glasses. Remnants of someones garage sale... still had the price tag from the sale on them.



Holt Howard winking Santa candle/tea light holders - $1.99 for the lot. Also $1.99, the largest Dala horse, made in Sweden, with sticker, which brings my collection to 3.




One of my largest & my favourite collections is vintage greeting cards. I haven't found any in quite awhile, I have been getting extremely anxious about finding some. I bought these, they had a couple more in there, but they weren't too fabulous. What is that thing coming out of the ground on that one greeting card? LOL. Anyways, the owl one was in there too. Loved the vintage owl napkins too much not to buy them. 



When I picked this Easter table cloth off the rack, I wuz like, "do I want this?" I was on the fence about it, but then thought, it might be a thrift regret. We do have a table now, vintage Easter (I guess this is vintage.. the Easter bunny is evil enough) is hard to find & anyways, the old lady at the cash said it was nice. It's even boyfriend approved




Thanks for reading... hope to see your finds this week!
I will be linking up with A Living Space.

  6. My eye immediately went to the mugs and you'll see why when I get my post done today!

    I very rarely ever see old greeting cards, I'd like to see more!

    Hope you're in better condition today!!

  7. I collect those tiny santa mugs & always thought they were for shots! I never imagined using them as tea light holders. Very smart. Congrats on the pink Gooseberry! I'm sure you are super excited. I know I would be even though I have a ridiculous stack of them.

    That evil bunny is the best. Can't believe the BF approved!

  8. Great finds, especially those dala horses! Hope your head feels better, I just whacked my head on a beam in the garage yesterday. Luckily, was wearing a cap so damage minimized..

  11. Holy crap man, sorry about your head! That sounds like you thumped it pretty freaking good.
    You did find some pretty cool stuff though. Why did designers and illustrators back in the day make everything so dang scary?! That bunny is terrifying!
    Great Pyrex finds! I wish I found Butterprint as frequently as you do.
