Ice Cold

Sometimes the thrift gods have a way of throwing you a bone when you least expect it and most need it. After searching high and low all year I finally came across the very item that was at the tippy top of my thrift wish list: A Penguin Ice Bucket ('Hot & Cold Server' if we're getting technical)!! I've been coveting my mom's and aunt's (which originally belonged to my grandma Judy) for the longest time.

It was waiting for me at Savers for a mere $2.99!!!
There's just something about those penguins....
Hmmm...not sure what will now reside at the top of my wishlist....I'll have to give this some thought. But I could die happy now that I've got my Penguin.

Here are a few other treasures I've picked up these past few weeks:

471 Pyrex Casserole from the Town & Country Set
 Vintage apron (.25 cents at Dig 'N Save!)
Singer Sewing Book circa 1949. An amazing resource for all things sewing related.

Plenty of lovely drawings and mid-century photographs in the book too!
I want to live here.
Betty Crocker Guide to Easy Entertaining circa 1959
With more delicious mid-century sketches:

Happy treasure hunting! Have you happened upon any of your thrift wish list items lately?

The funny thing for me is that I haven't found much of my usual wishlist stuff but it seems to have motivated me to dig down and I've been finding all sorts of unexpected treasures..!

What a neat ice bucket. I love the name Dig 'N Save. I hope it lives up to the name.
