I love red. I love Red Metal. I love RED VINTAGE AND OH-SO FABULOUS METAL!!!! You have seen it here before, there is just something so appealing about old red canisters and trays. (For more of my collection of tins, please click here.) The only thing more exciting to find is red design glassware. Yup, doesn't matter if I am at Goodwill or a lawnsale, any discovery of these treasures will get me dancing my "Happy Girl - U Go Girl" dance. (Goodwill employees are used to it but the looks I get from homeowners, Oh My.) So please allow me to share a few recent finds.
The trays shown above are recent finds; however, I previously sold the same one at my shop. When I found this one, the matching little trays did not accompany it. One by one I have been finding these little "tip" trays to complete a set of 8. I find that it is usually the way, that once an item is found, you just keep seeing the same thing everywhere. No wonder collections can happen so quickly.
You might recognize the red fork and spoon as being from my own Kitchen. They are now up in my shop. The mix and match glasses work perfectly together.
They all share a red and white theme. In my home we prefer glass to plastic. Makes for a stylish table and is good for the environment.
I love to find tins of by-gone products....... even better when the original price is showing.
Such a deal. For $.21 cents you can have Flash. Couldn't we all use a little Flash.
More tins to share. Okay one is more predominately pink, but I couldn't resist showing it to you. "Glass Wax.... now with Vanishing Action" It cleans a window a minute. Simply pour a small amount on a damp "cellulose" sponge and apply a thin coat to glass with with sponge. As Glass Wax dries, wipe off with soft cloth. Dirt Vanishes. No Skips. No Misses. You see where you're cleaning ..... know where you've cleaned. I don't know. Sounds more labor intensive than using vinegar and newspapers to wash the windows. How did our Moms do this, wearing skirts and heels, no less.
I am sharing my red treasures for Wednesday is Rednesday with Sue @ Its a Very Cherry World. Please stop over and say Hi and get your red-fix...... it will cheer you up.
Got it at Goodwill
