First off, I want to apologize for being AWOL the last week & a half. Just in time for Halloween, I had a week from Hell. After the flood in our basement, my husband was home on vacation for part of the week. Now while that doesn't sound so bad, and I love him, of course, it means all our daily routines are thrown out of whack (I know some of you SAHMs know what I'm talking about!) and I don't get my usual computer time. Then he went away on a hunting trip and while he was gone my son came home from school sick. (I'll spare you the details, but it involved a lot of cleaning....)
But hopefully we'll get back on track with this week's Thrifted Thursday:
I bought this Orange Crush dispenser a while back at a thrift store for $4. I loved the colors and the graphics, and it happens to work well with Halloween. The Harlequin and Scottie dog images just scream 1930s to me, but I don't know enough about this style of dispenser to date it definitively. I do have a fairly large collection of vintage soda bottles, but this is the only syrup dispenser I have. As with most of the things I buy, I bought it because it was cool!
Here it is with another Halloween themed-bottle, a milk bottle from Witchwood Dairies with a witch on a broomstick!
