Tuesday at 9 AM is supposedly the best time to shop my local thrift shop. They are closed Mondays, and re-stock the shelves with coveted vintage junk (aka treasures). As per usual, I stopped by yesterday morning to see what I would take home. I spotted these vintage Anchor Hocking oil and vinegar cruets and snatched them real quick. I think I paid 50 cents for the pair.
When I'm thrifting I try to see past the dirt and grime and imagine my finds all clean and sitting on my prop shelf. These cruets were pretty dirty (one had solidified oil inside), but with a little tlc and some extra hot, soapy water, they cleaned up perfectly!
This morning I was browsing pinterest and spotted this gorgeous ombre pin and immediately felt the urge to recreate that photo with my new salmon-colored cruets. Go ahead and say it, "COPY CAT!"
I love the soft feel of this photo, and cannot wait to use these beauties, maybe next time friends gather for dinner!
Do you have a favorite vintage find? Please tell me all about it...and make me jealous. ;)
