Went Junking!

Hi everyone, I do love pretty shiny things and found a couple beauties at the Salvation Army on Saturday!
79¢ for the square one, 59¢ for the oval one (great scrolled handles).
Love these shots with the sun and shadows!

If you've been to my blog before you might think the square one looks familiar...
But nope, it's totally different.
See, the one I had was round, I just picked up the square one to match.
Isn't a set so much nicer!
Can I get a "hallelujah sister" from the choir!
Have a happy day:@)

  2. Oh my gosh, I'm so behind in visiting my favorite blogs and posting at Frog Hollow Farm. Your finds are just great - are they small enough to use as appetizer or first course dishes for a meal? I've been using my clear depression glass set a lot recently - it adds sparkle to the table without adding a clashing color. Hallelujah sister!

  3. They do look great together. And so the same pattern.

  4. I have a dozen of those square ones (some from my grandmother and the rest from an elderly friend) and use them a lot--salads, desserts, to display "stuff". I like that yours are mismatched. As my husband would ask: "What do you plan to do with them"?

    Best,
    Bonnie

  9. How wonderful to find a matching piece at the thrift store. The set looks great! Three or more is a collection and I think you have a very pretty collection on your hands.
    Have a great week.

  12. I can never seem to get enough of clear glass dishes like these. So pretty and you can use them for so many things. You get a Hallelujah from me for sure on the prices! Great finds. hugs, Linda

  13. Great finds and good prices! They both bring back childhood memories at grandma's house. The square one had candy in it and I can still see the black olives in the oval one...Have a great Monday.

  16. Hi Lynn!

    Great finds, Honey!!! I have 2 of that same oval nut dish with the scroll handles! One was my mother's & one I found recently. I've seen them on sale for anywhere from $6-$10 so you got a nice bargain.
    I like to use mine for olives & pickles or lemon slices. They're the perfect size for little mints, too.

    I really like the ruffles edges on the others you have. Nice score!!!

  17. I have a square one just like that. My oval one is not near as pretty.

    I love to put pickled beets in the square one and Mom's bread & butter pickles in the oval one. They make a pretty table.

  20. I love poking around in antique stores! Great find.

  21. I have the ruffled one! I remember buying it for my mom at Woolworths when I was 10! So you got an antique! :)

  22. Oh, wow, that square one is just fabulous and all three together truly deserve a hallelujah chorus...... did you hear me singing? I absolutely love the photo with the light streaming through. I am just not a good junker. Everything I see really is junk! It must be a skill, or you just have great stores (meaning people are giving away great stuff) where you live!

  23. Love junkin'! You got some great finds! Too much fun! Pam N.

  24. Oh Yeah, Sister! You did 'Real Good' with those SA Finds. Love that glass stuff and that pattern with the ruffled edge. Can't wait to see what yummy goodies you put in them!

  31. Wow..I think I need to forget Goodwill and check out the Salvation Army store..I never seem to get there. At GW the same thing would have been $3.00. Great buys!

  32. Hello there! I'm your newest follower! I saw your piggies at your header and thought to myself "I've got to check this blog out if for nothing else then she has Piggies! I LOVE me some piggies...LOL Then I was scrolling down and saw a picture of a piggie dish with a caption of hoagie dip and I thought...wow an east coaster cause us east coasters have hoagies not subs! Can't wait to check out your blog further. You wouldn't happen to be a Phillies fan too?? (hoping, praying, wishing..)

  34. Saw your link on costal Charm and had to stop in. I love that glass. I have some old glass plates and they are very special to me. They add so much charm to the table when I use them.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I have a square one that belonged to my Grandmother. I use it for nuts, candies, etc. I never thought about using it for salads or desserts. Now I'll have to hunt for more! Congrats on your finds!
