Well its time for another round of Vintage Thingies Thursday sponsored by coloradolady.blogspot.com
So I am going to post some things we found again in our jaunts through the trash and curb side pick-ups In Salt Lake City.
This scale was found in a Mexican markets dumpster. It would have never been found as we usually don't do alot of actually dumpster diving. However this dumpster that night was loaded with wood from some displays that had been removed from the store. It was nice boards of pine that Hubby likes to build with. As he dug, he unearthed this little beauty. He of course would not let me see it and just kept oh ing and ah ing. And then tried to tell me he was going to leave it cause it was just too dirty. AS IF !!!! I did not care with this how much dirt I had to clean off of it....I only hope it had been in storage for years, cause if not, it was in the store in that state....I just cannot imagine that! The basket that is suppose to sit on the white rim is missing but it is still in working order and I just love it. It now has a home in my kitchen, where it is happily loved.
Next find was from the annual trash pick up in SLC. It was found in one of the more exclusive neighborhoods. The pictures really don't do it justice. It too is part of my home and is most of the time full of flowers. It is lead cystal. It did not have one scratch or ding on it...Who would throw out such a lovely piece? At least donate it to a charity shop right?
Next is a rolling pin we found in the trash. It is marble and quite heavy and has been in our home quite a while now. It was actually one of our first trash pile finds. It is wonderful to use to make pie crust with. You just have to be careful not to roll too hard or the pie crust gets way to thin. My hubby calls it the bad hubby basher....Again with the wicked sense of humor. Like I would ever! So that is some of my vintage kitchen items for this week.
