Vintage Finds

I've been eBay shopping again, can't help myself.
I got a good price on these Pyrex bowls.

There are only seven of these dotted glasses, but what the heck.
I didn't need them but they will be fun to use this summer.

I found these lovely millinery flowers for crafting.

Pretty box of old Christmas cards.

Sweet coloring book.
I'm still watching this item, haven't bought it yet.

I got on a Tupperware kick this week.
Love this stuff.

They make the best iced tea pitchers.

I saved the best for last.
I know, I have a perfectly good food processor and a blender.
But I had one of these gadgets in the 80's and my youngest son and I must have made a million french fries
one summer with this thing.
We had a garden full of potatoes so we had french fries, hash browns, you name it. 
We bought ketchup from Sam's Club by the case!

I don't know what happened to my old Kitchen Magician, we probably wore it out.
So, I couldn't pass this up when I saw it on eBay the other day!

I have to go check up on Ms.Wilma.

She's in there bidding on a new dress for the 4th of July.
I have to make sure she doesn't over-bid!

Have a great week,
from Dorothy and Wilma

Such wonderful vintage finds, especially love the bowls, they remind me of my great aunt. She used to have the same ones and would serve potato salad at picnics with them.

Love your dachshund too!

Great buys. That blue is the hot color I think this year in clothing, so these are hot for the kitchen.

Love the dotted glasses! Perfect for summer BBQ's!

I really like those Pyrex bowls and the glasses! My grandma gave me a Pyrex bowl that looks a lot like the big one on the bottom in your photo. I love it!

Ms. Wilma is so cute :)

Love your Butterprint bowls. One of my favorite Pyrex patterns. You did ok on the other fun stuff as well. I do hope Miss Wilma gets her new outfit for the 4th. She will look adorable in it. She looks like she is saying "please Mommy?" with her eyes.

You may have gathered from some of my recent "fashion" posts that I love all things polka dot, and yellow being my favourite colour anyway, those glasses are just "my" thing!
Love the Meadowsweet colouring book.

Great buys Dorothy! I've had to curtail my eBay buying, it sure is addicting.

Ms. Wilma looks lovely and doesn't she deserve that new skirt? What a cutie!

Patti said...

So many cute things that bring back memories. I did love those pastel bowls - and burping the lids! Ohhhh, the dotty glasses are yummy, and the 4th of July skirt is cute!

I love it! You are my favorite E-Bayer!! I love those bowls, they are beautiful! I like some old Tupperware, too. Ms Wilma is sure looking pretty!! It is so great that we can look on places like E-Bay and Etsy and find all the wonderful things that we would have such a hard time finding. You really got some great things.
