Eclectic mix…

renees stuff

This weekend’s haul. Bought the red box to hold all those electrical items such as the sync cord for my phone/computer; connector cord for the camera/computer; flash drives, backup drive, and cords I am not sure what they do but I don’t have the guts to toss. The holiday quilt hanging in the background, and during the holidays will hang in the window on my front door as it is the same size as the window. Recently got my hair cut and thought I would start using hot rollers versus a curling iron…but I tried the curlers and they don’t work in my hair…bummer.

Love blue so I couldn't resist the blue 9x13 (under the cake pan) and the blue dishes. The plates have a deep base and will probably be good for eating pasta. I only baking with glass dishes these days but I couldn’t resist the cake pan with the lid, as it will come in handy for hauling goodies to parties. The Chinese take out boxes will be used for gifts when we make our annual holiday carmels. I started camping again and even though I may only go once or twice a summer…I had to have the camping kit…which included silverware, two pans, plate and cup. Total $11.

I wonder where that blue baking dish originally came from? I've never seen one before. Love the red box, and those blue and white dishes are gorgeous! You did great!

I'm loving those dishes, wow great finds!! I remember those little camp metal dishes too, aren't they fun? My brothers had quite a few sets of these growing up. Great job!

Hi Renee,
This is my 1st time participating in Rhonda’s event and it has been fun. I love the red canister and I have those exact same electric curlers. I have lived in vintage homes in the past and miss the charm they had so guess I will enjoy yours instead! It will be fun following your site. It is always nice to meet new friends. ~Cathy~

Looks like you had a good time! Love the blue/white plates, but I think my favorite thing is the red box! That was a bummer about the hot rollers... :)
