Vintage Thingies Thursday, misc

I'm joining in at Colorado Lady for "Vintage Thingies Thursday".
Visit her blog here for everyone else's Vintage Things!

Misc. Thingies Around My House

This very old chest was handmade by my great grandfather. I love the simple lines of it. I inherited it when my mother died and will always treasure it.

The other things here are sort of kitcheny. I've had this old cracker tin for a long time. I like the red color.

This old bundt pan is pretty enough to hang on the wall! . . . which I did : ))

I got this great white ironstone casserole dish from Goodwill this past year. Very handy piece that goes with anything.

Have a good Thursday. More next week : ))


  1. What a wonderful tour of some of your vintage stuff. I love love love the tin!

  2. That dresser is a wonderful old piece. Made more special by where it came from.
