I hope most of you got a good laugh at last weeks post about my "What was I thinking" item that I had for you too see. Don't worry, that poor skinny pup has found a forever home and we will love him!
This week, I have got to show you my Goodwill finds. Do you remember back in the 50's and 60's most every kitchen had a set of these decorated plates?
I have seen several sets like this before, but NEVER have I seen a set that was made out of vintage platters......Remember.....I collect vintage platters!
Look at this great little lady. She is so pretty in your red and black. Near perfect conditon, she is just missing a sequin or two on her dress, and those can easily be replaced. I think she looks very lady like.
Now, just look at this smoking cowboy. I would not say he looks too manly...infact, I can hear my husband calling him a Dandy!
None the less, he is a perfect match for the little lady and he is in perfect condition...smoking the cigar and all.
I think this is a rather charming pair, and would be super cute in the kitchen. I just love the platters they were made out of, very unique. This pair of vintage goodness set me back a whole $1.75 for the pair...it was half price day on housewares at Goodwill. Score!
Here are the markings on the back of the platters, both match and are identical.
I know there are several ladies who join us every week with a love for red kitchen items, just like myself. I picked these two items up at local sales. The bar mixer (at least that is what I think it is) is really nice and the colors are like new. I found the nut grinder at a local thrift shop and was thrilled it still had the plastic lid, usually I find them and the lid is missing.
I hope you enjoyed this post for Vintage Thingies Thursday. I will be out of town today, and this post was scheduled ahead of time. I will visit everyone when I return over the weekend and look forward to all your vintage goodies and commenting when I return. Have a great week everyone!
