thrift store finds

Once every few weeks or so I'll stop by the local Goodwill to look for treasures in the knick-knack section. Most of the time I leave empty-handed, but lately I've had a couple of fruitful trips. I was super excited to find this vintage Pyrex dish because I already have a larger one in the same design. Perfect for serving dips or fresh berries.




I've been looking for something to hold fruit in the kitchen, and this vintage wire basket does the job beautifully.




And last but not least.. a library kit! Complete with a date stamp!

I am so envying the library kit! I love library kits!!!

..and it's so ironic that rachel's comment is so contradictory to mine :)
