More Garage Sale Finds

Well, since today is Saturday and I didn't have to work I decided to participate in one of my favorite summer pastimes...garage saling. When I was a kid  I used to spend the summers with my cousin and aunt and uncle and every Saturday morning my cousin and I would head out with a piece of peanut butter toast and our Scooby Doo cups in hand in pursuit of the latest finds at the nearby garage sales and estate sales. (And it wasn't always peanut butter toast, I was known to take refrigerated Baby Ruth bars with me, I'm bad, I know.) Those summers are what began my many vintage collections and sparked an interest in anything vintage related. Today was a pretty good day as far as garage sales go and I was able to find a bunch of cooking related items at a particular yard sale.

The lady whom I bought this book from told me that she learned how to cook reading through The Joy of Cooking. Being a vegetarian, I will not be able to make most of the recipes but it is still interesting to look through, and I love anything that has a story attached to it.

Yummy, I would eat this for breakfast any day! (I am a vegetarian who eats fish, I guess I am a fishetarian)


I lucked out with a couple of darling deadstock half aprons.

I can imagine myself cooking a weirdy recipe out of The Joy of Cooking for dearest D. while wearing my little half apron.

We found some cute wine glasses at the same garage sale (dearest D. informed me he is not a hand model).

Oh, and I bought a ceramic yule log. It's never too early to start thinking ahead for Christmas. Ho, ho, ho!
