A few kitchen things were to be found this week. Some great glass jars to house my tea and coffee.
I found this tin in Vinnie's for $2, the lovely lady next to me at the counter said I should use it for agar salads. Now my siblings will have a little chuckle when they read this. As kids, every Boxing day we would begrudgingly go to a luncheon at Betty's house. Betty was the sweetest old lady from our church who always put on a spread of meatloaf, cold meats and the finest of agar vegies. There was jello peas, jello carrot, jello beatroot....you get the picture. We would giggle away in the corner and never manage to eat any, I'm telling you, nothing was rolling off our plate.
I have no intention of using it for jello carrots but you can find the recipe here for Grandma's Sunshine Salad. Oh and sorry sis, not ironing the tea towel (also an op shop find) Who's got time for ironing tea towels and table cloths.
One can never have enough retro, mustard Pyrex. Also my favourite for the week, a Noritake sugar bowl for $3.75....bargain. I see these on ebay for $25
Some cute Arcoroc glass wear.
A wooden chip and dip platter straight from the 70's.
Check out Sophie's for some more kitsch or otherwise beautiful finds.
Fantastic finds! I too would be skipping the vegie jelly salads xReplyDelete
Fortunatly I have never had to suffer those jelly like meals lol Worse for me was the boiled parsnips, gag Great finds thoReplyDelete
Wow super collection this week marls. Adore the sugar bowl. Methinks mine belongs in thr camping box after seeing yours.ha.ReplyDelete
you have the most wonderful eye! i love everything. that mustard pyrex screams awesomeness.ReplyDelete
That tin is fantastic! However, i do think a cake baked in it would be a lot more appetising than jello-vegies, lol.ReplyDelete
I am so pleased to share that I have never been confronted by jellied vegies, well until your post that is. I now consider myself enlightened, and also relieved that it was only via blog and not in the flesh. Love the mustardy finds too- isn't it just a wonderful colour, I am completely hooked.melxReplyDelete

I couln't imagine eating jello carrots, gag material I think, but I'm sure you'll put the beautiful tin along with all the other great finds to good use!ReplyDelete

Great finds! Love the wooden chip/dip holder. Thanks for stopping by my blog!ReplyDelete
Oh no vegetables in jelly doesn't sound very appealing but the mould looks very pretty I'm sure something much yummier can be made in it:) The chip and dip bowl bring memories. Great finds Karlyn. xoReplyDelete
Loving those glasses and jars! Scarlett xReplyDelete
