It didn't take very long for me to complete my Spring Blossom Green Pyrex casserole set, just finding the first two pieces last week & finding the last piece just the other day. Little did I know, while moving dishes around in my cupboards I had another 475 tucked away in the cupboard on top of my fridge - can always use anther one. :)
Pictured with a vase I once passed up at Goodwill, picked it up at a Value Village. A similar vase - in blue & green - was up for sale at an antique market for $65.

These little jars were a buck each at Goodwill, very thick & Made in Japan. Don't know what they were original used for, but would love to fill them with vintage glitter or something. They stand just about 3 inches tall. 

Vintage chrome West Bend penquin ice bucket for $7.99 from a very decent Value Village. This was picked up on my last trip to Windsor. 

A gift for a friend when I eventually see her - she loves Hello Kitty (& pretty sure she no longer reads my blog, HAH). It was too good to pass up. The shot glass/tea light holders (whatever they are) & glass have Hello Kitty on them, just couldn't face them in the packaging - $2.99, Value Village. 

It's been awhile since a new vinyl has entered my collection, got two this week from two separate Goodwill's. Tracey Chapman & Rob Base & DJ E Z Rock. "It Takes Two" being one of my favourite '80s/'90s rap songs. I remember going into a record store looking for a cassette single for Seduction's song "It Takes Two" & they had never heard of it & tried to hand me this cassette.. I turned my head in disgust telling them I hated the song & years later I can't get enough. 


  1. Love it all! The orange vase looks great with your Pyrex too. Haaa! Rob Base!!! Thank you!
    Erica :)

  2. That West Bend ice buckey is very stylish. Love the look.

  3. Oooh that vase is so cute!

    Good score on the pyrex; it's true we can alway suse another one :)

    OMG that Hello Kitty set was the best deal! Let me know if you don't see your friend, I'll buy it from you.

    1. Awwe. Wish I knew, Vonlipi. They had another one & I never got it!

  4. ohhhh! i love early hip hop and that vase is just perfect! good stuff!

  5. Love Love that orange vase! Very bright and cheerful. Found you via a blog hop and am now a new follower.

  6. the big orange jar is very neat! My mom has that ice bucket too. I was wondering, do you have an online shop where you sell your vintage things? I'd love to check it out if so. Thanks for sharing at cap creations.

  7. Cap - I don't sell very much online for two reasons: shipping prices are quite high for larger items & most buyers are in the USA & can get the item shipped to them for half the price by someone in the USA, so it isn't worth the resale. & I am saving a lot of items for merch for an eventual consignment shop that I have in mind or opening a booth.

    I do eBay an item once in awhile,

    Nothing right now though.

  8. I love that vase! And of course, I love the Pyrex. :)
