Vintage Thingies Thursday – bits and pieces

Welcome to another fun Vintage Thingies Thursday, now hosted by Coloradolady.

I’ve got the op-shopping bug at the moment, and I’d like to share a few of my favourite finds over the last few weeks.

This a great old set of Willow enamel canisters. They’re a bit beat up and a little bit rusty, but I love them. Cream and green – great 1930s colours! The bread bin is enormous!!

This is a sweet little heart-shaped tray made out of painted masonite with green plastic ‘cane’! There’s a lovely vintage decal decoration – actually I bought some more of these decal transfers today but haven’t had time to photograph them yet – flowers and swans – very 1950s! The  jug is mottled green plastic, reminiscent of the old bakelite kitchenware.

Just a short post from me today – i’ve got sooooooo much to do! Have a great week!

  1. Oh as soon as I saw those green and cream canisters I knew I was looking at another Australian VTT-er! I wish I had some! I’m always looking out for a nice set or even odd ones at the right price … but still waiting. I love yours.

  6. What wonderful finds. I love the little tray. Happy VTT..

  7. I was so lucky with the canisters – they were $60 in the secondhand shop, but the guy said I could have the lot for $30!! I saw a smaller set of 3 vintage ones for sale in a gift shop yesterday for $180, so I reckon I did OK!!

  8. I love ’50s decal transfer wares-great tray and the trim is too much!
