Vintage Finds of Fun

Five Corner Antiques had a sale this weekend.  Did you see that?  When you read that did you realize what an exciting and potentially costly statement that was?  Dan-ger-ous.  SALE!  And a sale at a store where I have yearned for...lusted after...dreamed about a specific item for months! The 11" jadeite hobnail cake stand.  I knew she would be mine.  I just knew it.  And now friends, she is!!!!

Oh so pretty.  Oh so sweet.  Oh so desperate for a cake!  Anyone bake out there?  Just kidding.  I can bake.  Mostly.  Box mixes count, right?   And, because I have the teensiest tiniest penchant for vintage kitchen items I *may* have also bought a 1950's Hamilton Beach Model H stand mixer.  And it may have come with three pyrex milk glass mixing bowls and an original recipe booklet. 

I know, I know.  Objects don't define a happy life, blah blah blah.  Have I mentioned there was a sale??  I regret nothing!   :)

  1. Beautiful cake stand! I have a similar Hamilton Beach mixer. Mine is chrome and has the sleek Jetson's look to it. It's pretty sweet. I prefer my Kitchenaid, but there's nothing like the look of the vintage mixers.
