It's Vintage Thursday over at Coloradolady and I love anything vintage!
I've already shared the possum belly cabinet that I have in my kitchen next to my Hoosier style cabinet, but I just want you to take a closer look.

Do you see the milk bottles and the tins between the bowls? And yes, you can bet that I will definitely be changing out my patriotic dish towels for my fall ones this week.
The girl scout tin I found when I was my daughter's brownie leader in grade school - she is now a senior in high school. I couldn't find a date on it. The orange drink tin - not really sure how long or when or where I found it, has a date of 1954!
And then there are the milk bottles! The one in front, Chickagami Dairy, is really special to me because it was given to my by my grandfather when I was a little girl. I treasure it so! The other two I have just picked up here and there. And no, I don't really use them for milk - that's just salt because from a distance it looks like milk!

So that is just a few of my favorite vintage items!
Now, let's head on over to visit Coloradolady and see what other vintage treasures we find!
Hugs,
Cindy

  16. Love your cabinet. What is the top (counter) made of? It looks like the counter on my Hoosier. What a neat idea to put salt in the milk bottles. It does look like milk.
