Latest auction finds...

Had a banner day at auction last weekend bringing home these treasures...

A vintage 1960 Sunbeam Hand Mixer!! Never, ever pass one of these gems up... they are gold, literally. They were made here in the U.S.A. back when we used to make things in this country and made them very well. Though harvest gold is not my first color choice this baby makes up for it in mechanical perfection. Gotta whip up something with it very soon.

A mess of milk glass... all in one fell swoop, who could resist?

A sweet, sweet triangular nut dish... pink with charcoal gray bottom. So chic I can hardly stand it.

Nice oval bowl... sleek lines in matte black... gotta keep this one.

So cute baskets... remind me of summer and grilling parties.

Charming footed egg vase... perfect for Easter.

Sublime satisfaction.


  1. I'm nutty about the nut dish. Love the colors and the lines.

  2. Sublime satisfaction. <---supremely satisfied reading that.

    where was the auction? looks like a good one. b and i went to omaha to an auction on saturday. our car so full on the way home i had to slide my seat way up so i was nearly laying my head on the dash.

  3. The nut dish is just devine. I love that color.
