I'll bet you can't guess what this first one is. No, it's not bigger than a breadbox. Or smaller than a breadbox. It IS a breadbox!
Inside with paint stripper applied
I spotted this breadbox at a local estate/yard sale yesterday and for $2 it was mine. I could tell it was still solid, and my experience the past couple years of stripping old paint and refinishing metal things (trays, coolers, toolbox) convinced me I could bring this breadbox to its former glory. I'm in the process of stripping off the old, poorly applied pink paint now. It was white originally, with an copper anodized lid. I'll update you soon on this project, I hope.
So while we're looking at pink stuff, here's a set of coasters I picked up on our road trip to Adamstown, Pa., recently.
This bullfighter is about 24 inches wide and 16 inches tall, and it's made from a very thick plastic. On the back it's dated 1968. Pretty cool in a tacky/kitschy kinda way. She Who Must Be Obeyed has already banned it from the upstairs, so I'm not sure where I will find a home for it.
Since it's Sunday, I'll end this post with, well, I guess it's a prayer. I found this at the same sale as the breadbox, and since it's vintage and I have a vintage camper, I figured why not. I remember these pine knickknacks from many a gift shop back in the day.
