I totally ate those silver things...I also kind of remember thinking they were scary to bite into. As always, the stuff you find is amazing!

I LOVE those vintage sprinkles and silver dragees!! I NEVER find those!

We have a gumballmachine which we bought in about 1983 (it was vintage then: 50ties!). We filled it with bright colored gumballs and they are still inside, but they have faded a lot. Does that mean that american preservatives are far better? And which are the healthiest? ;-). Ah those scissors, you won the vintage queen trophy again this week!

Gorgeous photos!!! I have found a couple other Hall pieces lately in that same color yellow. I wonder if they only made yellow pottery...

Janelle

Oh,those little bottles are ADORABLE! Kind of gives me the shivers to think how old those sprinkles are, though...!

How come they don't package things as cute as they used to!?? That scissor display makes me want to sit down and cut stuff out of construction paper tonight...unfortunately, I really need to iron!

Mary @ Turkey Farm Treasures

I have served my family baked goods with 5 year old silver dragees on them, (not even kidding) and we live to tell. You really do find the most amazing stuff.

Julie

Well B I must confess in the back of my pantry there are items that have not seen the light of day for several years - I'm with you on "preservatives" - though I do draw the line with my hubbies arguement that canned baked beans never expire (yeah right). Love your finds as always....Jewels

I need those scissors - will you be posting them on Etsy or Ebay?? - and what is the link?

Janet

The cake toppings in the glass bottles are wonderful!

I've been reading through a bunch of your older posts and having a wonderful time. Thanks for being so funny and for sharing all your wonderful found treasures.

Carol @ Old Glory Cottage

Now I'm all nostalgic too! Wonderful finds, especially those cake decorations.
I was reading your previous post, and honey, you are SO guilty! Let me know if they put you in the slammer and throw away the key, because I want all of your stuff!

LOVE THE BOTTLES AND ALL THE RED, I KNOW WHAT YOU MEAN ABOUT THE YARD WORK AND ALL- I TOLD MY HUSBAND I GET TIRED OUT FROM THINKING OF ALL THERE IS TO DO AND AM TOO TIRED TO DO IT, IT SEEMS LIKE EVERYWHERE I LOOK THERE IS SOMETHING THAT NEEDS DOING. THE WEEDS HAVE TAKEN ON A NEW LIFE WITH A VENGEANCE AFTER THE RAIN AND HEAT LATELY. I THINK IT'S COOL THAT THOSE DECORS ARE STILL IN GOOD SHAPE - THEY PROBABLY HAVE LESS PRESERVATIVES IN THEM THAN WHAT YOU WOULD BUY TODAY. JUST THINK OF HOW OLD THINGS ARE THAT YOU BUY TODAY - ITS BEEN DAYS SINCE THAT MILK CAME OUT OF THE COW, AND EGGS? I THINK THEY ARE AROUND FOREVER BEFORE YOU ACTUALLY TAKE THEM HOME FROM THE STORE. SCARY, SCARY, I WOULD RATHER EAT 50 YEAR OLD SILVER DRAGEES = I THINK IT'S MORE AN ISSUE OF BREAKING YOUR TEETH. MY MOTHER USED TO MAKE CUT OUT STAR COOKES AT CHRISTMAS AND FROST THEM AND PUT ONE OF THOSE SILVER BALLS ON EACH STAR POINT - THAT'S 5 TOOTH BREAKERS, AT LEAST!!!
