Gosh, where has the time gone! Things have been really busy around ChezQT, and I have some catching up to do around here. I want to finish up some of the things I bought at the rummage sales and get on with more recent stuff, so stay tuned- hopefully I'll have a bit of free time soon!
I bought these darling Valentine heart candy boxes at a yard sale on the way to the rummage sale- I have been wanting some of these for a while and almost broke down and bought one at an antique store in February. I'm glad I waited because instead of $16, I paid 35 cents for both!
I couldn't resist this Fire King swirl casserole for $4, even if there is a chip in the lid. Most of the time the lid is nowhere to be found, so that was a bonus in my book.
This was the only vintage tablecloth at the 2nd sale I went to. I didn't give it much consideration until I unfolded it and saw the signature. $2, and it was mine!
I bought this oil painting for $4; I have been buying landscape paintings for the cabin. This one is such a magnetic shade of blue; I can't stop looking at it.
And a lucite lamp for $5- I mainly bought it for the vintage silk shade, which I promptly ripped on the way home in the car. It's not too bad though, I'll just turn it toward the wall. ;) I will use the base in my daughter's room; I have another similar one that it will go with.
And because it wouldn't count as a post unless there is Pyrex, I finally found some decent Pyrex in a thrift store. These two mixing bowls were $6.99 for the pair. I already have the 402, so that will be finding a new home, but I needed the 403. It's in great condition too! I find that I really prefer the straight mixing bowls over the Cinderella style bowls, so hopefully I can find the 401 and 404 to complete this set before too long.
