My Grandfather had a mixer like this(except it wasn't pink) when I was a child. He would make chocolate milkshakes for us. When I saw this one in pink-I had to have it-except-my favorite is strawberry so I'll be making those!
I bought this vintage dress at the antique store for $8.00. It fit me perfectly and had the prettiest roses. I decided to put my hair up in back so it looked like a bob. I got a lot of compliments, especially at the nursing home because I think it is an older style.
I also got this beautiful slip for $8.00. The satin is sooooo pretty! I'd like to figure out how I can wear it for a dress.
Well, I'm trying to decide if I want to purchase this 1950's heater. It's about $60.00 and that's more than I usually want to spend. I'd want it for the camper and not sure how safe it would be. Never seen one like it though-so it's tempting!~
I was so glad that it was still there when I went antiquing on Sunday. About a month ago I saw this pink lidded syrup pourer and didn't buy it-what was I thinking? And it was only $4.00. Thank goodness it was still waiting for me! It will go great when we have pink pancakes camping this year! Now I just need to find pink syrup!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And then I picked up this other little pourer for only $.50-double score!
I went antiquing with a friend, Amanda, I met on Christmas Day(my mom invited her for dinner) and we hit it off. We went antiquing a couple of months ago and with both our schedules, haven't had time until now to go again. It was a beautiful sunny day-perfect for a girl's afternoon out! I had a great time-she's fun to be with and easy to talk to! I felt horrible though because I had forgot I told her that I would pick her up at County Market at 11:00am and was waiting at the antique store instead. After almost 30 minutes she called me -and she was so forgiving about the whole mix-up! Thanks Amanda! She surprised me with this House Beautiful Magazine filled with pink items and inspiration and this sweet little ceramic birdie!
She gave me this litte pink coat for Maggie Mae and it fits her perfectly. I can't wait to get Maggie together with her little Boston Terrier-Baby Girl to play! I'm looking forward to getting together with her again-maybe camping-where we can let the girls play!
Here are my goodies from Friday's Brocton Sale-everything was $1.00 each. The dealer next to me was getting rid of stuff and kept putting stuff out-I missed some other goodies-but I was lucky to get this stuff!She said the red enamelware was the first thing she bought at auction. The shelf will be painted a fun color to go with my other ones. The bowls have chips but will go in my small pie cabinet. The flat pink planter will go on my antique wire planter on my porch.
