Welcome everyone to Vintage Thingies Thursday. If you have a love for vintage things, have come to the right place. We have a "dog-gone" good time each and every week!!!
If you are new to this party, please take the time to
read and follow the instructions for participating in Vintage Thingies Thursday, click HERE. I try and keep things fairly simple, so  please make sure you follow the instructions. Please only ONE link per week.  

Lastly, if you link in, your post needs to include:
1. the LINK back to my blog and or the button for Vintage Thingie Thursday. I have been visiting lately and when I click on a link, there is no mention of Vintage Thingie Thursday or my blog. 

2. make sure your post has something to do with something vintage. All advertisements will be deleted. If you'd like to advertise on my blog, email me, we can work that out. No more free advertising by linking in.  Shame on those who do this, nothing is free in life.

Starting Today, if you fail to either have the button on your blog, or in your blog post and/or have not linked back to my blog in your post. I will delete your link. 

It is not fair to those who follow the rules to allow others not to do so. I am not being ugly, but rules are all aspects of life. So if you find your link removed, check your post, you need to see why that happened. Hopefully, I won't have to do that.

We went to Bowie Trade days recently and had a great day. I have a great love for vintage jars and have several in my kitchen. If they have a red lid, well, that is all the better. I spotted this one, and had to have it. I paid $5.00 for it and tried to haggle down the price, but let me say the little old lady who was at the booth was rather proud of all her wares.

I liked this as it said Polish Sausage, and I thought it would be cute in my kitchen with the others jars I have. I inquired with the lady to see if she knew the age of the jar. She said she didn't but she assured me it was old, not that I was doubting that. She said "Honey, there are NO BAR CODES in that label, it is old." This would be the time I took out my five dollar bill and handed it to her!

I noticed there was a piece of paper inside the jar, but I could not read it until I took it out. The lady told me it was there when she bought the jar so she left it there. Evidently, I purchased Thurman's cookie jar and the date is there too. Icing on the cake.

I also have some vintage Peanuts cookie cutters. I love vintage cookie cutters, but I absolutely hate making rolled cookies and using them. I thought these were so cute for a buck.

This is how I felt when I found that note in my new jar......happy to have Thurman's cookie jar!!!  It makes me wonder who Thurman was, and what he was like, and what type of cookies did he keep in this jar.

This cookbook belonged to my mother in law. I really love it. The cookbook is full of great graphics as well as great recipes. I love a good recipe.

Here is a sample of the graphics on some of the pages. Really sweet.

Have a great weekend and the rest of spring break for many of you. See you next week, and I will announce the winner of the Vintage Thingie Giveaway for March.

  15. I love the Peanuts cookie cutters---I am a cookie cutter fanatic myself. And that Snoopy---how adorable it that! But you are right that rolled cookies are a lot of work. ;-)

  16. hi Suzanne! Great finds on the jars - a bit more than you wanted to pay, but if they put a smile on your face, then I think it's a GREAT deal! My kids would LOVE those Peanuts cutters - I've recently got them hooked on old Peanuts movies. Glad I could link up with you and your sweet friends today! -diane

  17. I adore all kinds of kitchy things like the cookie cutters. I'll be back to visit some of the others soon.


Sometimes someone says something really small, and it's like it fits into this empty space in your heart!

Thank you for stopping by and leaving your thoughts here, they really mean a lot to me!
