|2 hardcover decorating books. they were $1 for the pair at a local thrift.|
|this one is HUGE and titled "The American Woman's Encyclopedia of Home Decorating"|
|The glaze drip on this is to die for. Pearly white and green on a dark blue vase. $10|
|1965 Holiday Good Housekeeping, 1963 Ideas for Better Living Through Home Impovement, ($1 each) and a customer-geared Hall-Mack supply catalog. (ebay purchase)|
This is my 2nd Hall-Mack Catalog. The first is a commercial catalog for hardware stores to order from. This new one seems to be for home owners to pick out what they would like. Both share many of the same photos, but the customer copy features photo spreads of whole bathroom layouts and design.
|Pre-overstuffed recipe box. I needed one of these; I'm lazy about bringing cookbooks into the kitchen. My favorite recipe is for home made pierogies, which I am going to make tomorrow or next Sunday. $3|
|Full packaged sheets of wrapping paper. The desert theme one is flocked, I think it's my fave. $5 for the lot.|
I am DETERMINED to learn how our scanner works and do everything I can to make it compatible with my computer so that I can scan my favorite photos and graphics. I am a huge nerd when it comes to ephemera and I want to start a side blog for just vintage scanned graphics, ads, cards, wrap etc.
|My first Meakin! $3.50|
|I don't collect Pyrex. I do, however use these little custard (?) bowls in mismatched patterns for cheese plates. They hold olives and fig paste etc wonderfully on a huge teak platter. 50¢ each.|
Whew! Anyone else grab a good haul this weekend?
