Show & Tell Friday .....Just Beat It!!

Time for Show & Tell Friday, thank you to Kelli for hosting us. Be sure and check out
her creative blog, http://kellishouse.blogspot.com/, and see what others are showing and telling this week!!
I thought this week I would show and tell a collection that has garage sale ties, since
I am having a garage sale tomorrow. And also a couple other things in my collections
from garage sales.
I like old kitchen utensils and gadgets.
One I like is my old wooden beaters or mashers.
Some I have purchased at garage sales or antique malls, but some of these , especially the colored handled ones belonged to family members.
I have one little tiny doll sized one also that I forgot to show here.
I add to them slowly as I find one that is different from those I don't have now.
They are great grouped together, add a bit of interest in the kitchen.

My largest one, found at a garage sale for $2.
If anyone gives me trouble in my kitchen, it also works as an equalizer, LOL!!
Watch out.....

Many years ago I when I went a wandering to garage sales I found this old
restaurant china cup. I have several other pieces of green and white restaurant china but this one caught my eye for a special reason.
My husband's grandparents use to own a restaurant in Walla Walla, Washington called The Turf.
Although this piece did not come from their original restaurant, it still reminded me of that place.
So I got it for my hubby, he liked it, it was like $1 when I found it.

And I got this old Victorian milk glass hand vase at the same garage sale, I think
it was about $2.
Next time I will show more Hand Milk Glass items for Show and Tell Friday!

I love vintage kitchen things. Your milk glass is beautiful.


Candy said...

Don't you wish they could tell their story...where they've been, all the things they've mashed or hit. Who are the ladies that owned them.

And the white vase is sweet, never seen one quite like it.

Friday Blessings, Candy
