Welcome everyone to Vintage Thingies Thursday
If you have a love for vintage things, well....you have come to the right place. We have a really 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, LINK back to my blog, so everyone can see all of the vintage goodies on display that day. If you don't link back here, they won't know who to visit......thanks so much. Lastly, try to make an effort to visit the other participants. I know myself, I get so behind and busy, but this year, I am going to do my best to visit each week.
Inspiration can be anywhere....especially on the isles of a thrift store, or a goodwill! Does anyone remember these salad bowl sets from the late 60's or early 70's??
I think my grandma had a set that was similar to these, but the shape was a bit different. I have seen these on the shelves at local thrift stores and goodwill stores but have left them there for someone else.
If I tell you I have looked a dozen times, it might mean I have looked a couple dozen times for some of these bowls. Do I want to serve salad out of them?? Why no.....I don't......
I want to paint them and turn them into mushrooms for my flower bed! Just look at how cute these are!!! I saved this photo some time last year in hopes I'd find some cheap salad bowls to paint and DIY this crafty idea in my own garden.
So far.....nothing! Have you seen these types of bowls while you are out thrifting?? I am still on the look.....and spring is coming so I better get lucky soon!
Happy Vintage Thingie Thursday!!
