garage sale treasure...

Hubby was slightly beside himself when we came across this little treasure at a garage sale today...


it had him at 'hello', & then to find out that it was only $10 & it actually still worked...elated he was!!


we also picked up these great bowls & a few tea spoons which we are in dire need of...our tea spoons are disappearing at a rapid rate, all very mysterious, never to be seen or heard of again...

for more new found treasure visit Her Library Adventures...

  1. So beyond jealous about that wonderful mixer. The bowls are great too! I know what you mean about teaspoons. I wonder if they run off with the socks?

  16. The old mix master is great. I love the old style shape. It seems that the cutlery thief is at your place too. I seem to have a problem with missing forks. Oh, the mystery! Have a happy week and hope your little superheroes feel better soon. xo

  18. Didn't your Mum ever tell you? Teaspoons are like the matching pair to a sock. If your smalls are like mine, it might be worth checking the sandpit for both variety of item.

    PS. Hope the super heroes are on the up (up and away)...!
