REDNESDAY - ENAMELWARE AND ROSES
Happy first Rednesday of August!
Mister and I splurged this weekend and hit some yard/barn sales. Got lots of goodies!
First off, I found this great piece of red-trimmed enamelware with lid. I don't know what it's for, but I'm guessing a loaf pan or bread box. It's pretty big at 12-1/2" x 8-1/2" x 4-1/2 deep"
Next is this darling cardboard chest with roses all over it! This will reside in my bedroom.
And the piece-de-resistance is this fantastic vintage apron - red trimmed and roses to boot! I just can't get enough of the angled pockets and pleats! And, at only $2.00 from an ex-antique dealer!
As much as I love vintage aprons, I've always been pretty selective at the same time. My grandma wore these bib-style ones "every day of her life", so I've been looking for just the right one to remind me of her - and this is it! (Or the first, anyways!) My mom was an apron wearer, also, but she wore the half aprons - with big pockets for her tissues and cigarettes, lol!
I'm cheating with this photo - there's no red in it (unless you're color blind!). But I got these two items at the yard sales also. Vintage Pepsi bottles are not common, in my neck of the woods anyways, so I was excited to find this (for $1.00) - I'm a big-time (caffeine free, diet) Pepsi drinker.
The measuring spoons are interesting because they're not the usual light-weight aluminum ones. They're heavier, and probably stainless.
