(Please visit Suzanne at Colorado Lady for more Vintage Thingie Thursday fun!)
I'm sharing two things that I got recently at the Santa Monica Airport Antique Flea Market.
I saw these metal trays (luncheon size, not full size) and fell in love with them but they were at the very beginning of the show and I didn't want to lug them around with me. So I told myself, "If they're still here when we get back to the exit, I'll get them!" and YIPPIE, they were still there. My husband asked how many I wanted and I said "All of them!" bwahahhahahha! So we came home with nine of these fun trays. I thought they'd be great for summer eating on the patio. Currently hubby has his morning coffee set up (Honey and a mug) on one and I have my morning tea set up (Agave nectar and a mug) on another. Now if the sun would just come out and the chill would go away (we're talking about "Sunny Southern California" here - apparently not this summer!), we could have our sammies and iced tea outside on them.
Oh my gosh! I am so in love with this, is it not the cutest thing?! An antique candy tin ... with a kitty and a doggie! WAHOO! Looks like I have the beginnings of a doggie collection.
It says "Callard & Bowsers Butter-Scotch" on the front top and in the left hand bottom corner it says "Who spilled the milk?" and in the right hand bottom corner, "The Children's Box". On the lid edge there is a quote that reads "Really wholesome confectionery", Lancet.
I just look at it and smile.
Happy Vintage Thingie Thursday to everyone!
