Vintage Find & a priceless moment !



Since my camera is broken, I have to post about this thrifty find I made a few months ago.


Vintage Winter Frost White Corelle, 1970.






{8 cups & saucers, a mere 10 cents each.}



I spent 80 cents.



When I saw these, the first thought that came to mind was this...

Jello !

and I have to say, even my teenage sons thought that eating jello out of these was 'cool'.



And I really must share a priceless moment for me this weekend.



While we were boating, we came upon a school of dolphins ! There were 7, swimming right next to us. All in pairs with a new mama and BABY !!! Oh my gosh, I cannot tell you how excited I was. It was a magical moment. Thankfully I had my cell phone with me. (My new camera needs to get here soon !!!! )Here is the only photo I was able to capture.

And don't forget to stop by Southern Hospitality for more thrifty finds, and Smiling Sally for more blue !

P.s.
Don't forget....you still have time to enter my book giveaway ! Just leave a comment on that post !

I love the pictures with cups! I can only imagine how exciting that must have been to be so close to a dolphin family, what a moment.

How wonderful you were able to see the dolphins. I have never seen any in natural environments, what a blessing. Love your blue jello in the white dishes, so pretty and fresh looking!

That is still a great picture with your cell phone! You were pretty close to them! Very cool color jello--at first I thought it was Easter egg dye--great idea!

Lynn said...

Teenagers would love blue jello as would my precious 3 yr. old granddaughter. Must say it looks very pretty presented like this.

Even more amazing...your adventure at sea. WOW!!!

Hope your camera arrives today.

Great finds for only 80cents. I came home from garage sailing this weekend and told my hubby he couldn't afford me.... I had spent a whole 50 cents! He was happy, I was disappointed...not a great day for bargains for me!

Kate said...

I don't think I have ever found a deal like that!

The dolphins are so cool. Thank you for sharing.

Oh I'm so jealous of those cups! My grandma used to have a bunch and (I think yours are the same size) they measure one cup exactly, so they are totally useful! I have four I found at a thrift store and my husband uses one to measure the water for his oatmeal every morning.

I'm dying for a piece of that mud cake now... it looks so good with the frosting- wow!

Anne -
REALLY ??? They measure 1 cup ??
How cool is that...I'm going to go check right now !!
At least I know who to send them to if I part with them !!
