This week, I want to show you some of my recent granite ware pieces. But one in particular is most special to me and I can not wait to show you. Some of my relatives read my blog, and it just so happens that some of my relatives do not live anywhere close to me so reading my blog keeps them up to date on all my shenanigans. It also affords them the opportunity to see what types of stuff I collect and love.
Last week, I got an email from one such relative. My cousin who lives in Mississippi. Now, this cousin of mine and myself have not seen each other in well over 15 years, but she sure has tapped into my love of vintage. Just look at this wonderful granite ware pot......this came in the mail to me this week!
My cousin sent me this message about the surprise I'd soon be getting.....
I thought of you immediately when I found it and I thought...vintage. If you haven't gotten it yet, I will not give away what it is but, it has been "buried" for at least 13 years. Found it on my property when I was searching for metal for this friend of mine to haul off and just thought....this is too nice for junk. I washed and scrubbed it before I sent it. LOL. The very least I could do. Hope you like it and find a spot for it. If not, pretend you do and get rid of it at your end. Love ya!
Now, you tell me....do you think I have to pretend to love this vintage goodness??? I am here to tell you, I am not pretending no such thing....I simply love it!! It is right up my alley and it will be in my kitchen in no time flat. The lid was a find I brought home from Colorado this year, so this most definitely goes well together!
Just look at these wonderful granite pieces.......
This bowl is an estate sale find. My husband thought he'd purchase it and use it for a dog bowl....well, you can see that never happened.
This beautiful yellow pan is an estate sale find too. I just love the butter yellow color. I think I paid maybe $3.00 for this one.
But my greatest gift was this wonderful chippy vintage pot from my sweet cousin Janna, who maybe is learning to appreciate the art of vintage thingies here on my blog.....at least to the point of not taking it to the junk yard, and sending it to me....where it will be much loved!!!! The thought and the sentiment of this gift means the world to me....really, that kind of love from a gift like this could never be purchased in a store. Again, Janna, Thank you for your thoughtfulness!!
Have a great Vintage Thingie Thursday everyone!!! Have a safe holiday weekend.....
