REMINDER: We have several new friends linking in for Vintage Thingie Thursday. I want to remind everyone that the link for VTT goes up on Wednesday evening and will run through Friday morning (early) then the link will be closed. I know it is hard to get in the habit of posting earlier than later, but try and get your link in before early Friday morning. I have to close the link to keep spam out of the link. Thanks!! And I know Wednesday is not Thursday, here...but it is Thursday for our friends who live on the other side of the globe!!
I have been missing in action, I know....but I have been so frustrated with my computer and its illness....I have just left the darn thing alone the past week. I don't like change, or things I use on a regular basis to not be the way they should. That being said, I guess I will just have to live with the changes and get to learn my computer all over again....take my advice, back up everything.....I lost everything on my computer to that darn virus and I have been pouting about it for over a week. I was just thinking I needed to transfer all of the pictures to an external hard drive...well, don't need to worry about that now..there are no pictures to transfer....feel my frustration?? OK...moving on.......
I am always looking for vintage things. One day a few months ago, I found this adorable pie plate. No markings at all....but I loved the pattern. It looked like needlework and so I brought it home. Does anyone know the name of this pattern or maker?
It looks like fall to me, with the vines and berries. I know I did not pay more than a couple of dollars for it, but imagine my excitement when on another outing I spotted a match for the pie plate......
Just look at this beauty. Now, there is a bit of a story about this covered casserole dish. I spotted the dish, but it did not have a lid, but soon in the same booth, I saw a dish with a lid, all in the same pattern.
Now, I wanted this dish and I wanted the matching lid. However, the lid that matched was paired up with the same pattern dish only that one was a bit discolored. I told the guy walking by asking if I needed any help, that this did not make much sense to me. It looked to me that the lid was taped to the wrong casserole dish, it did not even match up with the color of the dish it was with.....
Now, I am really good about sticking my foot in my mouth on many occasions and this time, proved no different. Seems the booth I was in belonged to said man....uhhhh......that should explain enough right there, the silly man did not even know how to match up his dishes to sell....LOL. He said if I took both dishes, the one with the lid and the one without the lid, he would make me a good deal. That way, I'd have the pretty dish with the pretty lid....hmmmm.....now I see his tactic....not nice I'd say......shame on him....but I guess you have figured it out by now.....
I bought both...and Sophie, Dora and Bailey seem to really like their vintage dog dish. I think this little dog dish set me back about $15.00 total for the pair. But, the colors match my kitchen, and well, who could resist that sales pitch. And I am happy to have the pie plate and a casserole dish with lid that match, and match nicely. Now you tell me, was that a pitch or what? Can you really believe he sat the darn pretty lid on this discolored, but charming dish? And can you believe I fell for that sales tactic.... hook, line and sinker? I thought so! Good news is, this little vintage dog dish is too heavy for the dogs to drag all over the house like they did their plastic ones. Money well spent if you ask me!
Have a great weekend.....I'll get my mojo back this week.....if I can figure out how to work my not so new, but different, same ole' computer! Happy Vintage Thingie Thursday everyone!
