vintage and new {and new to me}

I just thought this picture was cool. Two of my favorite things. Coca-Cola and Fiesta shakers. :)

I bought this pitcher for $6.50 and the fridgie was also $6.50. See how the pitcher has the "spring blossom green" pattern??? Love that.

A dear friend gave me this vintage Pyrex casserole dish as a wedding present. It is the first piece I have in this pattern! Soo pretty! I bought the salt and pepper shakers for $6 and the tea towel for $1.50.

My husband made me this cute trivet from wine corks and a vintage tray. The corks are from a winery we visited on our honeymoon. He's awesome. :)

I just love salt and pepper shakers!!!

Thanks for looking. :)

I'm back! :)

I know it's been awhile...but this is the start of a lot more blogging. :) I have been really busy lately.....I just got married and was lucky enough to spend 11 days with my wonderful husband before he had to return to California. I know this is not thrifty vintage kitchen related, but I really wanted to share some photos of the most special day of my life....

I was pretty sad after I dropped him off at the airport, so --- of course! --- I went vintage shopping!!!! I found some good buys --- pictures to follow soon...


Getting married has made me really start thinking about things like buying a house, etc. I have been thinking for awhile about my perfect kitchen and what I want it to look like. Here are two that I LOVE that I found online:

Thanks for looking! :)
