Yard sale finds.... unearthed

Do you remember when I told you about this wonderful yard sale we visited last fall?   The gorgeous detailing on the old iron bed?  Or the adorable chair (which is currently hanging in our garage!)  Since last October the "vintage" picnic basket has sat next to "the" desk by the front closet, ignored, neglected.  It had turned into just another dropping point, a place half finished projects and supplies for proposed projects to languish, unheeded, ignored.... So today I decided to drag said picnic basket out, clear off her top and take a peak inside... And do you know what I found?  These lovelies!

Do you remember when salad dressings and such came pretty bottles such as these?

And these!

Some of the bottles not shown would be the lovely glass cranberry mold, the Mrs. Butterworth's syrup bottle (one of which has gone missing!), and miscellaneous ones without lids which are currently soaking.

Yes, my refrigerator will once again have its shelves graced with homemade salad dressings but this time they will be not only be a feast for the palate but for the eyes as well.
