Fall Finds and Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to my Canadian friends and readers! 



Today I am sharing some photos of recent finds, both new and vintage. 


This vintage pudding bowl will go on the kitchen hutch with my ironstone collection, including similar larger bowls.


This large white oval bowl is a new HomeSense find. I will enjoy using it to serve our Thanksgiving dinner today. The mini white pumpkins are from the grocery store. 


This aqua handled wooden rolling pin will be added to my collection on the counter. I thought it was a great deal at $7. I may try to sell a few of the red ones now lol. The colour is so me!


This jug with cheese board was an antique store find in Niagara and I would like to list it.


In the same antique store (a huge old home right on Lake Ontario, actually) I spotted this little cream bottle and dice ($3 for all.) My guess is the smaller dice are quite vintage, They are smaller than modern dice and are quite worn, even chippy. The bottle will be added to my collection on the kitchen hutch and the dice will go in my basement game piece collection. 



I found another vintage small ironstone oval plate, perfect for a soap or trinket dish, or for display. I love putting little oval plates like this under soap pumps on counters. I may list this one.


From a local gift/coffee shop I picked up some replacement votives of my favourite Fall scents (I enjoy them all year.)


The grocery store also had these cute small white pumpkins for $2.49. I might have to go back for more -they are so cute!  We are hosting a large family dinner today. My sister's family, a brother and sil, my dad, a niece's family and a nephew's family. Lots of teenagers and 4 great nieces and a great nephew. We will have all the usual -turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, lots of veggies, rolls, caesar salad, meatballs (my hubby and guys are not fond of turkey) and pies for dessert. Yum! I can hardly wait and thank goodness for a dishwasher and extra hands.
